Later ont when our nobleman seems to have recovered his reason, his two friends go up to visit him. During the conversation, they tell Don Quixote that the Turks are coming with a powerful navy and it is feared that they will attack. Don Quixote thinks that the King should follow his counsel, calling a meeting of all knights-errant of Spain for even though only half a dozen of them showed Up 't would be sufficient to destroy the Ottomans. And with such conversation as this, the curate and the barber realize that their friend is as crazy as ever.

But Don Quixote hears the argument and bades Sancho come up to his bedroom. The curate and barber leave, worried.

The squire then accuses his master of having enticed him from his
home and lead him off to all sorts of adventures. Don Quixote replies that together they went and together they ran the gauntlet of the same luck.
