Leonato says that whenever Beatrice and Benedict meet, they have a war of wit between them. They enjoy to verbally sparring each other about most any subject. There is a little bit of sexual tension between the two. Both are headstrong and clever. They love debating and arguing with each other using semantics and word play.
