Storyboard Text

  • Reynaldo, you will go to Paris and give this money and these notes to Laertes. 
  • Okay my lord.
  • While you are in Paris I also need you to spy on Laertes.
  • Yes my lord, I'll make sure he isn't doing anything dishonorable.
  • You may go now Reynaldo.
  • What's wrong my daughter?
  • Polonius sends his loyal servant Reynaldo to Paris to deliver money and notes to his son Laertes.
  • Hamlet came to me and he looked disordered. He then grabbed and held onto me, but he didn't say anything.
  • Polonius gives Reynaldo specific instructions for spying on Laertes personal life. 
  • Don't worry Ophelia. Hamlet is only acting this way because you have been disassociating yourself from him. 
  • I guess... I was just listening to what you told me to do.
  • When Reynaldo is sent off Ophelia enters visibly upset.
  • Let's go visit the king and tell him about Hamlet's behaviour.
  • Polonius asks Ophelia what is wrong and she explains that Hamlet looked disheveled when he aggressively approached her.
  • Polonius tells Ophelia that Hamlet only acted this way because he is upset that she is distancing herself from him.
  • Polonius thinks Hamlet is lovesick and this is causing him to be moody, so he rushes to tell the king about his plan to prove his theory.
