Oh my dear sister, why did you die so soon!

I would do everything for Ophelia, even eat a crocodile!
Hamlet and Horacio hide when the procession approaches the tomb. While Ophelia is buried, Hamlet realizes that it is she who has died. At the same time, Laertes rages at the priest, who says that giving Ofelia a proper Christian burial would desecrate the dead.
Be patient Laertes. Your revenge will come soon.
