Love's Labour's Lost - Episode 2 - Dance Beneath My Stockings
Costard is put under the guard of Don Armado, who continues to dote on Jaquenetta. Meanwhile, the Princess, chauffeured by her Counsellor (Boyet) arrives on campus at Howard University in her Model T along with her Ladies-In-Waiting (Rosaline, Maria and Katharine). She sends Boyet to announce their arrival to the King of Navarre, who sends back word that he cannot house the Ladies under his roof but will provide shelter in a tent on campus, instead. The Princess is offended and demands that the King answer her father’s suit: that he return the land of Aquitaine to France. The King counters that her father has not paid him back the money he lent for her father’s war. The Princess accuses Navarre of lying and asks Boyet to provide proof of payment. Boyet says it will take another day for that proof to arrive. As they banter, Berowne tries to flirt with Rosaline, who turns him away. Dumaine and Longaville are smitten with Katharine and Maria, and ask Boyet for their names. He teasingly obliges. After the men depart, Boyet tells the Princess he believes the King is in love with her. She laughs it off as she strolls to their newly erected tent.
