Troilus wants to know where he can find Cressida's dad, Calchas. He's with Diomedes and, by the way, Diomedes totally wants to hook up with Cressida. Troilus wants to go to Calchas' tent after dinner, which is fine by Ulysses, but first can Troilus tell him if Cressida had a bad rep in Troy and whether or not she had a lover? Um, about that.

      Now lat us stinte of Troilus a throwe, That rydeth forth, and lat us tourne faste Un-to Criseyde, that heng hir heed ful lowe, Ther-as she sat allone, and gan to caste Wher-on she wolde apoynte hir at the laste, If it so were hir eem ne wolde cesse, For Troilus, up-on hir for to presse. Criseyde reassures Troilus of her love, but Troilus is so overcome by the situation that he faints across the bed. Pandarus loses no time in pushing Criseyde into bed with Troilus.

    'Troilus and Criseyde', Geoffrey Chaucer's most substantial completed work, is a long historical romance; its famous tale of love and betrayal in the Trojan War later inspired William Shakespeare.
