Laertes: "Ay, my lord- so you will not o'errule me to a peace... My lord, I will be ruled the rather if you could devise it so that I might be the organ."
Claudius: "For goodness, growing to a pleurisy, dies in his own too-much. That we would do, we should do when we would, for this "would" changes and hath abatements and delays as many as there are tongues, are hands, are accidents. And then this "should" is like a spendthrift sigh that hurts be easing.
King Claudius devises a plan with Laertes to kill Hamlet. Laertes will taunt challenge Hamlet to a duel in which Laertes will have a poisoned sword. Claudius will also offer Hamlet a drink from a poisoned goblet.
Hamlet: "Here, thou incestuous, murderous, damned Dane, drink off this potion. Is thy union here? Follow my mother."
The duel between Hamlet and Laertes commences. Queen Gertrude accidentally drinks from Hamlet's poisoned goblet and dies. Laertes scores a cut onto Hamlet, but drops his sword and Hamlet picks it up and kills Laertes. Hamlet then stabs King Claudius with the poisoned sword and forces him to drink the poisoned Goblet.
A Norwegian prince named Fortinbras passes through Denmark and the castle and sees how the entire royal family has been slaughtered. Horatio was told, with Hamlet's dying breath, to tell what has happened in Denmark, and to order Fortinbras as new king. Fortinbras orders Hamlet to be carried away like a fallen soldier.
Horatio: "And let me speak to th' yet-unknowing world how these things came about. So shall you hear of carnal, bloody, and unnatural acts, of accidental judgements, casual slaughters, of deaths put on by cunning and forced cause, and, in this upshot, purposes mistook fall'n on th' inventors heads. All this can I truly deliver."
Fortinbras: "Bear Hamlet like a soldier to the stage, for he was likely, had he put on, to have proved most royally."
