Love's Labour's Lost - Episode 3 - Tonguing In French
In a rehearsal room at the Howard Conservatory of Music, Don Armado debates the nature of love with Moth before releasing Costard from bondage to deliver a love letter he wrote to Jacquenetta. Costard celebrates his payment and is about to set off on his errand when Berowne hires him to deliver a love letter he wrote to Rosaline. Off campus, the Princess and her entourage admire the king performing dressage on his horse as they prepare to hunt. Costard arrives to deliver Berowne’s letter to Rosaline but accidentally delivers Armado’s letter, which Boyet reads out loud to the delight of all the ladies as they set off on the deer hunt. Later, the scholars Nathaniel and Holofernes critique the deer hunt on a bus ride back to campus. Jaquenetta gets on board and asks Nathaniel to read the letter Costard delivered to her out loud because she cannot read it herself. Holofernes realizes that the letter has been delivered to the wrong person. She tells Jaquenetta to bring it to the King. Jaquenetta sets off, taking Costard with her.
