BIANCA: Sister, don’t wrong me, or wrong yourself, don’t try and treat me like a slave, now hurry, untie my hands, i’ll pull off all my swag,i’ll do whatever you want, I know to respect my elders.
KATHERINA: Of all the people who want you, tell me, who loves you most, will you cheat on them?
BIANCA: Trust me, of all the men i’ve seen, none of them are special, none that I like above all others.
KATHERINA: Spoilt brat, you lie, isn’t it hortensio?
BIANCA: Hah, if you love him, i’ll get you with him myself if you can’t get him yourself.
KATHERINA: Ah, you like rich men more, maybe Gremio is the one you need.
BIANCA: no, you insult me, and I have known you have been insulting me all this while, enough of this, untie my hands!
‘Katherina strikes her’
KATHERINA: if that was an insult then all the rest were too.
