Act IV, Scene 3

The host and Bardolph talk to one another at the Garter Inn. Bardolph informs the host that a party of German dukes wishes to have three of his horses. The host agrees to give them his horses but insists that he will make them pay handsomely for them.


Notes

This brief scene centers on the host, who is Falstaff's friend, also being duped. It is obvious that Caius and Evans, in their quest for vengeance on the host, have hired some men, probably Pistol, Nym and Rugby, to impersonate the three Germans. The plan is to hire the horses, and then not pay the money or return the horses. The host, as naïve as Falstaff, does not see through the plan and dreams of making money off of the German visitors.
