Storyboard Text

  • Is she to be buried in Christian burial that wilfully seeks her own salvation?
  • I tell thee she is: and therefore make her grave straight: the crowner hath sat on her, and finds it Christian burial.
  • Who is to be buried in ’t?
  • What man dost thou dig it for?
  • What woman, then?
  • For no man, sir.
  • For none, neither.
  • One that was a woman, sir, but, rest her soul, she’s dead.
  • How long hast thou been a grave-maker?
  • How long is that since?
  • How came he mad?
  • Why?
  • Upon what ground?
  • Why, because he was mad. He shall recover his wits there, or, if he do not, it’s no great matter there.
  • Cannot you tell that? Every fool can tell that. It was the very day that young Hamlet was born, he that is mad and sent into England.
  • Of all the days i' the year, I came to ’t that day that our last King Hamlet overcame Fortinbras.
  • Faith, e'en with losing his wits.
  • Why, here in Denmark. I have been sexton here, man and boy, thirty years.
  • Let me see. Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio, a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy. He hath borne me on his back a thousand times, and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is!
  • Whose was it?
  • The gravediggers are discussing Ophelia's suicide and wonder about wether or not she should have a proper Christian burial.
  • Nay, I know not.
  • A whoreson mad fellow’s it was. Whose do you think it was?
  • A pestilence on him for a mad rogue! He poured a flagon of Rhenish on my head once. This same skull, sir, was Yorick’s skull, the king’s jester.
  • Hamlet approaches the gravedigger and exchanges witticisms with him about this morbid work. Hamlet has no idea that it is Ophelia's grave.
  • In this scene, we finally learn how old Hamlet is by his conversation with the gravedigger.
  • Pluck them asunder.
  • What is he whose grief Bears such an emphasis, whose phrase of sorrow conjures the wandering stars, and makes them stand like wonder-wounded hearers? This is I,Hamlet the Dane.
  • The devil take thy soul!
  • Hamlet beings to discuss the nature of mortality as he discovers Yorick’s skull, the King's jester, a man he loved since he was a child.
  • A procession enters – Claudius, Gertrude, and Laertes march toward the grave along with a priest and an entourage bearing a body. Hamlet notices that the burial is less elaborate than usual, signifying that the deceased was a suicide.
