Ye Madde Libbes, Part the Seventh

Ye Madde Libbe of ye Fifth day of June, Anno Domini 2003:
He's mad that trusts in the tameness of a wolf, a horse's health, a _________, or a _________.
(yes, there are two blanks. I think you're up to it.)

O Sir, we quarrel in print, by the book, as you have books for good manners. I will name you the degrees. The first, the Retort Courteous; the second, the Quip Modest; the third, the Reply Churlish; the fourth, the Reproof Valiant; the fifth, the Countercheck Quarrelsome; the sixth, the Lie with Circumstance; the seventh, the Lie Direct.
--As You Like It, V:4
