Although Sir John Falstaff has historically inspired an abundance of critical considerations commensurate with his girth, his straightwoman, Mistress Quickly, has received relatively scant attention. She was popular enough, however, for Shakespeare to include her in no fewer than four plays, and in fact, of all the characters invented for 1 Henry IV, only Bardolph can equal this feat.
