- The Prince of Wales stands on stage singing an air from The Beggar's opera wearing his jazey (a wig simulating natural hair). Behind him the singers Elizabeth Billington and Mrs. Fitzherbert face off against each other menacingly, the former with clenched fists, the latter with clawing fingers forward (which have already scratched her rival's cheek). The Duke of York emerges from below stage through a trapdoor holding up a bottle of Velno (a quack venereal remedy) saying, "Ah Boy, remember how I fell, You'll suffer the self same Snare I'll take my Bible Oath."
