In The Taming of the Shrew, Lucentio has switched places with his servant Tranio for the purposes of a Zany Scheme. Eventually, Tranio is told to produce his father and gets a pedant to impersonate Lucentio's dad. Everything's going well until Lucentio's real father shows up, at which point Tranio, the pedant, and Lucentio's other servant Biondello frantically deny knowing him and try to get him thrown in jail. Just when it looks as if this might actually work, Lucentio arrives on the scene:
Biondello: O! we are spoiled and—yonder he is: deny him, forswear him, or else we are all undone.
Lucentio: [Kneeling] Pardon, sweet father.
Vincentio: Lives my sweet son?
[Exeunt BIONDELLO, TRANIO, and Pedant, as fast as may be]
