|Commentary||The innkeeper's wife and daughter ask don Quixote to kelp her husband/father because four guests, who did not want to pay, are beating him.
Don Quixote refuses to do it arguing that this adventure belongs to his squire.
Scene resolved with good humour; notice the innkeeper's wife pushing don Quixote.
