In this scene, Launcelot tells Jessica she cannot get into heaven because she is the daughter of a Jew.  She says she will convert, but he tells her that won't work because it will raise the price of pork.  She becomes very distressed until Lorenzo enters and tells her that it is the word of God that she is sanctified by her marriage to a Christian.  Lorenzo asks Jessica what she thinks of Portia, to which she responds with praises.
