Much Ado About Nothing,
Act 1, Scene 1, line 107.
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.
