Which of the following lines show the return to order in Hermia's relationship with her father Egeus?


“I will go tell him of fair Hermia's flight; / Then to the wood will he tomorrow night / Pursue her; and for this intelligence / If I have thanks, it is a dear expense.” (1.1.246)


“DEMETRIUS: Do not you think / The Duke was here, and bid us follow him? / HERMIA: Yea, and my father.” (4.1.192)


“Enough, enough my lord; you have enough. / I beg the law, the law, upon his head. / They would have stol'n away,… / Thereby to have defeated you and me;… / Of my consent that she should be your wife.” (4.1.151)


“Fair lovers, you are fortunately met; / Of this discourse we more will hear anon. / Egeus, I will overbear your will;” (4.1.174)


“I beg the ancient privilege of Athens: / As she is mine, / I may dispose of her; / Which shall be either to this gentleman, / Or to her death, according to our law.” (1.1.41)
