Act V, Scene i

In this scene, we see once again the contrast between Dull and his learned friends. Dull is present from the beginning of this scene, but does not speak until the very end. Holofernes notices this and says, "Via, goodman Dull! thou hast spoken no word all this while," and Dull replies "[n]or understood none neither, sir" (V.i.141-2). Shakespeare implies that Dull's inability to follow the conversation of Holofernes, Nathaniel, and Armado stems from his notably inferior intellect.
