Every Man in His Humour: Act 5, Scene 4 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Roger Formal, drunk, arrives at Justice Clement’s house, followed shortly after by Edward, Wellbred, and Bridget. Clement tells Edward that he has “made your peace […] so will I for all the rest, ere you forsake my roof.”
Justice Clement’s words pacify any potential anger on Old Knowell’s part. His role as peacemaker is foregrounded, bringing the play to a relatively forced conclusion.
