[234d] Is it not wonderful, especially in diction?

Socrates
More than that, it is miraculous, my friend; I am quite overcome by it. And this is due to you, Phaedrus, because as I looked at you, I saw that you were delighted by the speech as you read. So, thinking that you know more than I about such matters, I followed in your train and joined you in the divine frenzy.

Phaedrus
Indeed! So you see fit to make fun of it?

Socrates
Do I seem to you to be joking and not to be in earnest?
