Enter HAMLET. Full Summary
1 Safely stowed.
2 Hamlet! Lord Hamlet!
3 What noise? who calls on Hamlet?
4 O, here they come.
5 What have you done, my lord, with the dead body?
6 Compounded it with dust, whereto 'tis kin.
9 Do not believe it.
10 Believe what?
14 Take you me for a sponge, my lord?
15 Ay, sir, that soaks up the king's countenance, his
16 rewards, his authorities. But such officers do the
17 king best service in the end: he keeps them, like
18 an ape, in the corner of his jaw; first mouthed, to
19 be last swallowed: when he needs what you have
20 gleaned, it is but squeezing you, and, sponge, you
21 shall be dry again.
22 I understand you not, my lord.
29 A thing, my lord!
30 Of nothing: bring me to him. Hide fox, and all after.
