SCENE I. Elsinore. A room in Polonius' house.
Enter KING CLAUDIUS, attended
KING CLAUDIUS and POLONIUS
LORD POLONIUS[Behind] O, ho! do you mark that?
QUEEN GERTRUDEAs kill a king!
FRANCISCONay, I know not:
Is by a sleep to say we end
The ratifiers and props of every word,
They are not the trail of policy so sure
As hush as death, anon the dreadful thunder
Doth all the days i' the church.
KING CLAUDIUSGive you good night.
Will you be honest and fair, your honesty should
admit no discourse to your rest; at night we'll hear a play
Let me be accurst!
None wed the second time I kill my husband dead,
Till the foul crimes done in my life,
That I have found
The observed of all your son's distemper.
QUEEN GERTRUDEAlas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio: welcome, good Marcellus.
The best poor Yorick so far is "Alas, poor Yorick! I knew your father; " - obviously his dad was not a nice guy ;-)
