Petruchio abruptly demands of Baptista what dowry he will receive when he marries Katharina, upon which Baptista replies: "After my death the one half of my lands,/And in possession twenty thousand crowns." (2.1: 121-122) Petruchio is satisfied, and reassures Baptista that he will successfully woo the feisty Katharina.
