It's a skeevy play in some ways, but I do like the end of Much Ado About Nothing:

Benedick: Which is Beatrice?
Beatrice: [Unmasking] I answer to that name. What is your will?
Benedick: Do not you love me?
Beatrice: Why, no; no more than reason.
Benedick: Why, then your uncle and the prince and Claudio
Have been deceived; they swore you did.
Beatrice: Do not you love me?
Benedick: Troth, no; no more than reason.
Beatrice: Why, then my cousin Margaret and Ursula
Are much deceived; for they did swear you did.
Benedick: They swore that you were almost sick for me.
Beatrice: They swore that you were well-nigh dead for me.
Benedick: 'Tis no such matter. Then you do not love me?
Beatrice: No, truly, but in friendly recompense.
Leonato: Come, cousin, I am sure you love the gentleman.
Claudio: And I'll be sworn upon't that he loves her;
For here's a paper written in his hand,
A halting sonnet of his own pure brain,
Fashion'd to Beatrice.
Hero: And here's another
Writ in my cousin's hand, stolen from her pocket,
Containing her affection unto Benedick.
Benedick: A miracle! here's our own hands against our hearts.
Come, I will have thee; but, by this light, I take
thee for pity.
Beatrice: I would not deny you; but, by this good day, I yield
upon great persuasion; and partly to save your life,
for I was told you were in a consumption.
Benedick: Peace! I will stop your mouth.
[Kissing her]

Here's David Tennant and Catherine Tate. You're welcome.

Video should start playing at that point, if the embedding works correctly.
