Which line does NOT support his comment?
“Write me a prologue, and let the prologue seem to / say we will do no harm with our swords, and that / Pyramus is not kill’d indeed;” (3.1.15)
“I see their knavery. / This is to make an ass of me, to fright me, if they could; but I will not stir from this place,” (3.1.110)
“Helena is here at hand / And the youth, mistook by me, / Pleading for a lover’s fee. Shall we their fond pageant see?” (3.2.111)
“Never did mockers waste more idle breath.” (3.2.168)
“If you were men, as men you are in show, / You would not use a gentle lady so; / To vow, and swear, and superpraise my parts / When I am sure you hate me with your hearts.” (3.2.151)
