What did the Queen say to the Ace?

“I’ve heard a great deal about you.”
In which Shakespearean play does the gift of a chest of tennis balls provoke a declaration of war?

Henry V, in Act I, Scene ii. The gift, sent by the French dauphin to taunt Henry about the follies of his youth, triggers a tirade from Henry, who instructs the French ambassador to tell the dauphin “this mock of his hath turn’d his balls to gun-stones (cannonballs).”
Lucky Partners (1958)

On this game show, host Carl Cordell read part of the serial number on a dollar bill. Players in the studio—and viewers at home—won prizes if they had a dollar bill with matching numbers. Fatal flaw: Because of the large number of bills in circulation, there were rarely any winners on Lucky Partners.
On the ’50s sitcom I Married Joan, sisters Joan Davis and Beverly Willis played mother and daughter.
