This storyboard does not have a description.
"Are not you Signior Benedick?" (II.I.159).
"You know me well, I am he" (II.I.160).
"Signior, you are very near my brother in his love. He is enamored on Hero. I pray you dissuade him from her. She is no equal for his birth. You may do the part of an honest man in it" (II.I.161-164).
"How know you he loves her?" (II.I.165).
"Thus answer I in name of Benedick, But hear these ill news with the ears of Claudio. 'Tis certain so. The Prince woos for himself. Friendship is constant in all other things Save in the office and affairs of love. Therefore all hearts in love use their own tongues. Let every eye negotiate for itself And trust no agent, for beauty is a witch Against whose charms faith melteth into blood. This is an accident of hourly proof, Which I mistrusted not. Farewell therefore, Hero" (II.I.170-180).
During this scene, Don John knows that the guy in the corner is Claudio. He asks if he is Benedick, so he could falsely rant to him about an incorrect plan about his brother, Don Pedro.
Don John tells "Benedick," who is really Claudio, that Don Pedro loves Claudio's true love. Claudio is getting nervous that Don Pedro is going to steal his girl and abandon the plan.
Claudio, like the crybaby he is, is sobbing because he thinks Hero is going to be taken away from him. He feels betrayed because Don John lied about Don Pedro being in love with Hero, which he really isn't.
