This is, of course, quite unfair. Ms. Amit suffers from chronic Hughes
disease. She made a claim about a character in *MOV,* a claim no
Shakespearean has made previously to my knowledge, but didn't
substantiate it from the text. Ms. Bonomi assures us, I think
convincingly, that this claim can not be found in the text, and asked
Ms. Amit to stop mentioning it until she can demonstrate it is in the
text. That sounds reasonable to me.
Since Ms. Amit also says,

perhaps she will be kind enough to do so. Which acts, scenes, and lines
support this claim?
