Spoken by Petruchio to Hortensio in regards to Katherine's harshness, Petruchio tells Hortensio even if Katherine were as rough as the Adriatic seas, he would still be able to handle her. The quote is a sexual metaphor in saying even if Katherine's vagina was as rough and moist as the Adriatic seas, she would not be able to remove his erection. (I:ii,96-97) "For I will board her, though she chide as loud as thunder when the clouds in autumn crack."
