The Friar asks Claudio if he has come to marry Hero, to which Claudio replies, "No" (4.1.6). Leonato ignore the answer by playing with words to give it a different meaning.
He tells Leonato, "Give not this rotten orange to your friend" (4.1.30) and accuses Hero of infidelity.
Don Pedro also refuses to defend Hero's honor, telling Leonato that he watched with his own eyes as Hero embraced another man the night before.
Hero faints and falls to the ground.
