Act 1, Scene 4
My hour is almost come when I to sulfurous and tormenting flames must render up myself.
Alas, poor ghost!
Act 1, Scene 2
O God, a beast that wants discourse of reason Would have mourned longer!—married with my uncle, My father’s brother, but no more like my father Than I to Hercules. Within a month, Ere yet the salt of most unrighteous tears Had left the flushing in her gallèd eyes, She married. O most wicked speed, to post With such dexterity to incestuous sheets!
Act 3, Scene 2
Well, my lord. If he steal aught the whilst this play is playing, And ’scape detecting, I will pay the theft.
As Vulcan’s stithy. Give him heedful note. For I mine eyes will rivet to his face, And after we will both our judgments join In censure of his seeming.
Hamlet sees his father's ghost on the castle walls, which tells him he has been murdered by Hamlet's uncle and his brother. This gives Hamlet one of his main objectives during this play, which is to seek justice for his father.
Hamlet is speaking about how quickly his mother remarried after his father died. He is angry of how insensitive both Claudius and Gertrude are for scolding him for still mourning his death. He often refers to "incestuous sheets", because his mother married his uncle.
Hamlet asks Horatio to watch Claudius closely during the play. He knows the plot of the play reflects what he did to Hamlet's father, so he knows if he's guilty he will give a reaction.
