->'''Naomi:''' Hamlet's basically a teenage [[{{Emo}} boy]]. He's [[AllMenArePerverts got all these desires]], but [[CannotSpitItOut he doesn't have the bottle to reach out for them]]. So, [[LoveMakesYouCrazy he goes mad]], and [[{{Wangst}} wanks off]] about [[TheOphelia Ophelia]], and [[{{Foreshadowing}} ends up so boring, somebody has to kill him]]!\\
'''Josie:''' I'm not sure that's right. There's no wanking in ''Hamlet''.\\
'''Naomi:''' Yeah, there is. Loads. Only they call it "[[SurrogateSoliloquy soliloquising]]".

by Tim Hnetka\\
I ask to be, or not to be.\\
That is the thing, I ask of me.\\
This sullied life, it makes me shudder.\\
My unc' is boffing my dear mother.\\
Would I, could I take my life?\\
Could I, should I, end this strife?\\
Should I jump out of a plane?\\
Or lie down in front of a train?\\
Should I from a cliff just leap?\\
Could I put myself to sleep?\\
Shoot myself, or take some poison?\\
Maybe try self immolation?\\
To shudder off this mortal coil,\\
I could stab myself with a foil,\\
Or slash my wrists while in the bath?\\
Would it help to end my wrath?\\
To sleep, to dream, aye, there's the rub.\\
I'd drop a toaster in my tub.\\
Would they be happy, with me dead?\\
Could I murder them instead?\\
These thoughts take much consideration,\\
I'm the prince of procrastination.''

->''Prince Hamlet thought uncle a traitor\\
For having it off with his mater.\\
"Revenge Dad or not?"'s\\
The gist of the plot.\\
He did -- nine soliloquies later.''

->''Will you kill him in his bed?\\
Stick a dagger in his head?\\
I would not, could not kill the king.\\
I would not do this evil thing.\\
I will not wed this girl, you see.\\
So get her to a nunnery.''

->'''Officer Don:''' Hamlet? The story is as old as time: Pretty boy son has a rich daddy, and a good-looking mommy. The uncle knocks off daddy, marries mommy, and he cuts pretty boy out of the action. So junior goes crazy and he kills them all. Not a pretty story... but there it is.\\
'''Tommy Solomon:''' Isn't that the plot to 'The Lion King'?
