Polidoro: This has never happened to me before. Nevertheless test me.

Rosina: Right. Sing me a song!

Polidoro: A song? I should sing a song?

Rosina continues: Then play a minuet.

Polidoro: I only know the clarinet.

Rosina: Well, is there anything you can do?

Ninetta: And you want to be a beau?

Polidoro asks: Did you say piano?

Rosina retorts: Go to Hell, you are a peasant. Many will come now to court me.
