The wedding of Claudio and Hero turns into a disaster after Claudio goes mad.
"No"-Claudio "I do"-Hero
"You come hither, my lord, to marry this lady?"
"She blushes from guiltiness, not modesty."
"Give not this rotten orange to your friend."
"Behold, how like a maid she blushes here!"
"What man was he talked with you yesternight Out at your window betwixt twelve and one?"
Were you with another man last night?
"None my lord."
The friar asks Claudio if he has come here to marry Hero. Claudio doesn't want to marry Hero at the alter. Then the friar asks Hero is she has come here to marry Claudio. Hero does.
"To all beauty into thoughts of harm, and never shall it more be graceful."
"I am sorry for thy much misgovernment."
Claudio starts accusing Hero of being with another man. Hero blushes, in which Claudio believes the blush is evidence of her guiltness. Claudio also calls her a rotten orange. Hero denies
Claudio asks if Hero can answer his next question truthfully. Leonato accepts., so Claudio asks if Hero, between the hours of midnight and one o' clock, if she has been with another man. Hero denies this.
Don Pedro is also against Hero, who believes Hero's behaviour is shocking. Claudio says that the beauty things he used to see turned into danger and he will never trick him again.
Hero faints after hearing these hurtful things from Claudio and Don Pedro. Beatrice asks Hero why she has fainted.
