Celia:

He is a fine men who writes fine verses, speaks in a fine accent, makes fine promises and breaks them finely thus, breaking the heart of his love. He is like a junior inexperienced rider at tilting who rides his horse unsteadily only on one side and breaks his spear on the wrong way of the shield and makes a fool of himself. Still all love that is guided by folly and ruled by youth is fine.

"Here Celia is making fun of Orlando in a sarcastic way."
