A Doctor is consulted by the Jailer and his friends in the hopes of curing the Jailer’s Daughter’s madness.
He finds it a most interesting case. Though not entirely certain that he can cure her, he decides that the world should join her in her madness to try and bring her out of it. He is much more concerned for his own success than for the believability of the Wooer’s impersonation of Palamon or for the Jailer’s concern for morality, and doesn’t much believe in 18-year-old girls’ chastity anyway. He considers fathers who think their grown daughters are perfectly chaste to be fools.
