Storyboard Text

  • There they are, digging Ophelia's grave...
  • Hmm.. doesn't Ophelia's death seem suspicious?
  • It looks like a suicide to me.
  • Wow! I can't believe this skull belonged to Yorick...
  • This thing?
  • Ophelia, I wish to be buried with you!
  • Don't be foolish.. Let's duel!
  • In Elisnore, Hamlet and Horatio come up on two gravediggers pondering on whether or not Ophelia's death was accidental or if it was a suicide.
  • Hamlet recognizes a skull in the graveyard and realizes that it belonged to Yorick, a court jester from his childhood. He mourns over the fact that he was once a happy man and now he is in a grave.
  • During Ophelia's funeral, Laertes jumps in the grave and begs to be buried with her. Hamlet follows and challenges him to a duel. "Why, I will fight with him upon this theme until my eyelids no longer wag!" (255)
