HAMLET: I must resume my act. Take your seat.
CLAUDIUS: How fares my nephew Hamlet?
HAMLET: Wonderful! I dine on air, like a chameleon—and thus I am stuffed with promises, like a chicken for the table.
CLAUDIUS: I have no idea what you’re talking about, Hamlet. You do not answer my questions.
HAMLET: Nor my own, neither.
My lord, you performed in university plays, you say?
POLONIUS: That I did, my lord, and I was considered a good actor.
HAMLET: What role did you play?
POLONIUS: I played Julius Caesar! I was killed in the Capitol. By Brutus.
HAMLET: It was brutish of him to kill so capital a man there.
