Kate has had little food or sleep for several days. She entreats Grumio to get her something to eat but he refuses as per his master's orders. Kate has also had little sleep. Petruchio also purposely finds fault in the gowned that Kate is supposed to wear to Padua.

Petruchio tells Kate that she is still arguing with him. She is not tame yet.
