"You should not have believed me, for virtue cannot so inoculate our old stock but we shall relish of it. I loved you not...Get thee to a nunnery. Why wouldst thou be a breeder of sinners? "
Act 3, Scene 2
"Nay, ’tis twice two months, my lord."
"O God, your only jig-maker. What should a man do but be merry? For, look you, how cheerfully my mother looks, and my father died within these two hours."
Act 3, Scene 4
"O, me, what hast thou done?"
"How now, a rat? Dead for a ducat, dead."
"O, I am slain!"
After his soliloquy, Hamlet spots Ophelia. She wants to give back things he has given to her, but denies that he has ever given her them. He bashes her and claims that he never loved her. He says all this because he suspects that something is wrong and he knows that Ophelia is letting Claudius and Polonius use her. He is very aware and filled with anger.
The day has come for Hamlet's plan to happen. Before the play starts, Hamlet is very talkative and makes Claudius, Gertrude, and Ophelia uncomfortable. He's playing mind games. He's upset that everybody acts like his father's death was so long ago. The whole kingdom seems happy, which isn't right. Hamlet does not like how fast everybody moved on -as if nothing happened.
Hamlet goes to meet with his mother because she wanted to talk to him. Hamlet "stabs" his mother with words. He's angry and explains how it was wrong for her to stab King Hamlet's back and move on so fast. He constantly insults her as he vents. Gertrude feels so hurt. Hamlet thinks Claudius is behind the arras, so he stabs it. It turned out to be Polonius, but Hamlet doesn't feel bad. He thinks he deserved it for acting like a rat. Hamlet seems very confident in himself.
