Reaction to?????? This scene finds Portia trying to talk her love into waiting a bit before he chooses from the caskets. He, of course refuses.

In this scene we see Portia respond with wit and imagination. She gives him hints from on side to the other and even gives him a ring he promises to wear forever...... in essence, she talks him into an immediate marriage. She's a sly little fox!
