A Midsummer Night's Dream Act 4, Scene 2: "Athens, A room in Quince's house"
The players wait desperately for Bottom in Quince's house. They are worried because their play will be a disaster without Bottom and they will also not win sixpence for putting on the play. He is the only person in all of Athens, they believe, can play Pyramus. "He hath simply the best wit of any handicraft man in Athens" Act 4, Scene 2, line 10. Bottom shows up to everyone's joy and he starts to tell his dream. While recounting his tale, he changes subject to the play, Pyramus and Thisbe.
