Given Ophelia’s response to this, it’s possible that this is meant to be a little ribald, maybe a little personally suggestive.
He’s using the formal You, so it’s got some distance but it’s a directive so it does seem aimed at our fair Ophelia. And what exactly could he be suggesting she show without shame? Something it might be funny for the prologue to explain.
Why on earth is he making jokes like this to the woman he just broke up with?
