There’s a great small scene in Twelfth Night, A2S2, where the supercilious Malvolio meets with Viola (disguised as the boy, Cesario). Malvolio has been asked, by Olivia, to return a ring which Olivia said was given to her by Cesario on behalf of Orsino, who thinks he loves Olivia.
But Viola / Cesario hasn’t given Olivia a ring. She doesn’t tell Malvolio this, so he is unaware of the subterfuge by Olivia. Once Malvolio has left the scene, Viola / Cesario wonders about why Olivia had ‘returned’ the ring, and realises that Olivia has fallen in love with Viola / Cesario, who in turn is in love with Orsino, who in turn is ‘in love’ with Olivia.
Viola’s soliloquy includes a wonderful phrase which doesn’t make much sense in modern English:
“How will this fadge?”
The phrase means “How will this work out?” but ‘Fadge’ is such a nicer word than ‘Work Out’ it’s a shame it has gone out of use.
