A. Ophelia says the Prologue of the play is brief. Hamlet looks at his mother and says, "as is woman's love."


B. Hamlet has shown the King a copy of what he did to Hamlet's father. Hamlet also baits the king through the whole performance ," Tis a knavish piece of work, but what o' that? Your majesty and we that have free souls, it touches us not..."


C. The Player Queen is rather long winded in her protest to the Player King that she will never marry again. Gertrude thinks she is overdoing it.
