I can't tell you how many times I've seen 4... Bf5?! 5. Ng3 Bg6?! 6. h4 h6 7. Ne5 Bh7 8. Qh5 g6 9. Bc4 e6 10. Qe2 when a number of opponents have simply resigned, Black's position is so bad.

 

5. Bc4

The Two Knights is about "development" above all.

 

5... Ndf6!? 6. Neg5!

The tricky idea 6. Ne5?! Qd4! 7. Nxf6+ exf6 8. Nxf7 Qxc4 9. Nxh8 Qe6+ 10. Kf1 g6 is better for Black in the end.
