  • How is ’t, Laertes?
  • Why, as a woodcock to mine own springe, Osric. I am justly killed with mine own treachery.
  • Here, thou murderous, damned Dane, Drink off this potion. Is thy union here? Follow my mother.
  • Now cracks a noble heart.—Good night, sweet prince,And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!—Why does the drum come hither?
  • The plans go awry when Gertrude unwittingly drinks from thepoisoned cup and dies.
  • Then both Laertes and Hamlet arewounded by the poisoned blade, and Laertes dies.
  • Hamlet, in his death throes, kills Claudius. Hamlet dies, leaving only his friend Horatio to explain the truth to the new king, Fortinbras, as he returns in victory from the Polish wars.
