Dentist Or Be Careful What You Put In Your Mouth, The
Pantalone, he of the corpulent girth, extended ego, aged years, and extreme wealth has decided to take the lovely (and much younger) IsabElla as his new bride, despite the fact that she is in love with his son Oratio, and he with her. It's up to Pantalone's crafty servant Pedrolino to save the day. aided by Isabella's maidservant Isabella, her self-absorbed brother Flavio, a very angry doctor, and a host of other characters (including Pantalone's nymphomaniac daughter), Pedrolino concocts a scheme to make Pantalone believe he has the worst breath in history, figuring that while Pantalone goes to seek the help of a dentist, the young lovers will have time to run away together. (ever notice how young lovers always seem to need help in these sorts of stories?) However the path of true love never runs smooth, nor do schemes to keep it so, it seems; and Pedrolino has to contend with a rhyming witch, several misguided suitors for Isabella's hand, and some candy that has a very unusual effect upon whomever so shall decide to take a taste--all the while trying to keep his own plans on track.
