Part 2, Chapter 11 Summary

A dejected Don comes across a wagon filled with actors still in costume from the play they have just put on. One of them decides to pull a prank and frighten Rozinante, so that Quixote is thrown from his horse. While Sancho goes to help Quixote, the same actor jumps on Dapple and torments him until he also is thrown. The actor trails after the cart, and Dapple returns to Sancho. Quixote threatens the troupe, and they stand together against him. Sancho advises his master not to fight, since they are just acting the part of worthy adversaries instead of being worthy adversaries.
