Chapter: English Literature in the Sixteenth Century
After Maria leaves, the Fool starts talking to Malvolio as himself, only giving the poor imprisoned "madman" even more futile hope. The Fool then starts having a conversation with "the priest," just to screw with Malvolio some more, presumably because A) he's a fool, and B) he's a jerk. Jerkiness aside, the Fool actually promises to help Malvolio out, probably because helping the prisoner will only lead to further hilarity.
