They say the scene is a street. This is the first scene of the play. Solanio is speaking to Antonio, the merchant. Salerio(some editors prefer Salarino because of spelling variations in the earliest text) is also present. Salerio and Solanio later speak with Shylock(Act 3, scene 1). This is notable, in part, because one might wonder if Shylock too has become a "want-wit"(line 6), that is, one lacking good sense.
