Much ado about nothing - Husbands and beards

Since we brought up Emma Thompson, were bound to (at least) mention Much ado about nothing, one of the most wonderful and adorable movies/plays I've ever seen... (long live Shakespeare!)

Beatrice: (...) Lord, I could not endure a husband with a beard on his face! I had rather lie in the woollen.
Leonato: You may light on a husband that hath no beard.
Beatrice: What should I do with him? Dress him in my apparel and make him my waiting-gentlewoman? He that hath a beard is more than a youth, he that hath no beard is less than a man; and he that is more than a youth is not for me, and he than is less than a man I am not for him: therefore I will even take sixpence in earnest of the beardward and lead his apes into hell.
Leonato: Well then, go you into hell?
Beatrice: No, but to the gate, and there will the Devil meet me like an old cuckold with horns on his head, and say, " Get you to the heaven, Beatrice, get you to the heaven, here's no place for you maids." So deliver I up my apes, and away to Saint Peter, for the heavens; he shows me where the bachelors sit, and there live we as merry as the day is long.
