I have no idea, but will kick off:

I suspect Beatrice, in Much Ado About Nothing, by Shakespeare.

What’s wrong with stewed prunes? I probably have more faith in them than most humans.

Yes, as PP has previously said, it's Shakespeare and you're partly correct in that it is one of his plays with Henry in the title.

Yes, it is Henry IV, Part 1 (although my complete works calls it First Part of King Henry IV)
from Act 3, Scene 3.

Amazing how I'd be pushed to remember what time I went to bed last night but I remembered that from studying it at university 45 years ago.
