Note to Much Ado About Nothing, 1.1.107: "Signior Benedick, no; for then were you a child."
Signior Benedick, no; for then were you a child.: This is another guy joke. Leonato says that he has no doubt that Hero is his child, because when Hero was born, Benedick was only a child, implying that Benedick is the only man attractive enough to seduce Leonato's wife.
