* At Ophelia's funeral, Laertes asks the priest holding the ceremony if anything more can be done for the ceremony beyond simply burying Ophelia in a Christian grave with little fanfare. The priest not only says no, but has a major KickTheDog moment when he says that Ophelia's being buried in a Christian grave is an insult due to her likely [[DrivenToSuicide suicide.]] [[JerkAss He goes on to say that she should have been buried in unhallowed ground and, rather than pray for her, people should throw rocks on her grave as punishment for her 'sin'.]] Laertes [[BigBrotherInstinct gets good and pissed at this]] and rips the priest a new one, telling him that he not only thinks that Ophelia will be in heaven, but that the priest himself will go to hell. Keep in mind, back then you did ''not'' say things like this to the clergy:
-->'''Laertes:''' I tell thee, churlish priest,\\
A ministering angel shall my sister be,\\
When thou liest howling.

-->'''Hamlet''': 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!
