Maria at Toby's request dresses the Fool up as a minister and sends him to the dark room in which they are keeping Malvolio. The Fool, as the minister, tells him that he is mad, and leaves him in the dark. The fool, then as himself, sings and Malvolio recognizes the voice and calls to him. Feste talks to him in his own voice, but because it is dark, Malvolio cannot see it was he as the preacher. Malvolio wants Feste to bring him paper, light, and ink and Feste leaves him to fetch the things.
