Recommended to purchase from kultur.com as this play is so wonderful you can watch it over and over. I advise inviting junior high school students who are somewhat intelligent to join you in watching it, go ahead, ask the neighbor kid or your cousin or whoever, it will be a great influence on their life and fun.

This shows when Kate and Petruchio meet for the first time. He proposes marriage and she is reluctant. Be sure to follow along with the words at

Note that the line "Kiss Me, Kate" is spoken in this sequence. (For people who don't know, there's a must-see film 'Kiss Me Kate' with music and lyrics from Cole Porter, Broadway musical of 195? I think 1953 or thereabouts.) (I'm sure you can check that on the internets.) (cf imdb.com)

Strikes me that YouTube should have a sidebar that links to imdb.com.
