Als er erfährt, dass Minna von Barnhelm in der Stadt ist, die seinen versetzten Ring gekauft und so von seinem Aufenthalt in Berlin erfahren hat, zieht er sich aus Scham vor ihr zurück. Auch seinem besten Freund, dem Wachtmeister Werner, erlaubt er nicht, ihm mit Geld auszuhelfen. Minna von Barnhelm und ihre Kammerjungfer Franziska, die Gefallen an Werner gefunden hat, wollen Tellheim durch eine List seinen Stolz heimzahlen. Minna verkündet ihrem Verlobten, dass sie seiner nicht würdig sei und ihn daher nie heiraten könne: "Sein Wechsel könne jederzeit eingelöst werden und seine Ehre wiederhergestellt werden, ihre Ehre jedoch sei dahin, da ihr Onkel sie wegen einer verweigerten Ehe mit einem für sie gewählten Mann verstoßen habe"
