"Is she to be buried in Christian burial that willfully seeks her own salvation?" (5.1.1-2), the First Clown asks his partner, as they are digging Ophelia's grave. The two of them discuss this question in their ignorant way until the First Clown sends the second for some liquor. Then Hamlet arrives on scene and engages in some verbal sparring with First Clown, who turns out to be, like Hamlet, fond of irony. And they both remember well that "mad rogue" (5.1.180), Yorick.
