Well there is Hamlet telling his mummy to get to a nunnery and Hamlet telling Ophelia to get to a nunnery. Hamlet's mother issues and Ophelia issues become sort of interchangeable. Mother is scoring with uncle every night and was probably sheet surfing before his father died. Unfortunately Hamlet feels left out of this little love triangle and deems all women harlots and deceivers. So, a nunnery serves the dual purpose of keeping Ophelia chaste and mother, well not sleeping with half the castle!
