# Act, Scene, Line Speech text
1 II, 1, 949
  • I will, my lord.
  • I will, my lord.
  • Polonius. Give him this money and these notes, Reynaldo.

    Reynaldo. I will, my lord.

2 II, 1, 953
  • My lord, I did intend it.
  • My lord, I did intend it.
  • Polonius. You shall do marvell's wisely, good Reynaldo,
    Before You visit him, to make inquire
    Of his behaviour.

    Reynaldo. My lord, I did intend it.

3 II, 1, 964
  • Ay, very well, my lord.
  • Ay, very well, my lord.
  • Polonius. Marry, well said, very well said. Look you, sir,
    Enquire me first what Danskers are in Paris;
    And how, and who, what means, and where they keep,
    What company, at what expense; and finding
    By this encompassment and drift of question
    That they do know my son, come you more nearer
    Than your particular demands will touch it.
    Take you, as 'twere, some distant knowledge of him;
    As thus, 'I know his father and his friends,
    And in part him.' Do you mark this, Reynaldo?

    Reynaldo. Ay, very well, my lord.

4 II, 1, 973
  • As gaming, my lord.
  • As gaming, my lord.
  • Polonius. 'And in part him, but,' you may say, 'not well.
    But if't be he I mean, he's very wild
    Addicted so and so'; and there put on him
    What forgeries you please; marry, none so rank
    As may dishonour him- take heed of that;
    But, sir, such wanton, wild, and usual slips
    As are companions noted and most known
    To youth and liberty.

    Reynaldo. As gaming, my lord.

5 II, 1, 976
  • My lord, that would dishonour him.
  • My lord, that would dishonour him.
  • Polonius. Ay, or drinking, fencing, swearing, quarrelling,
    Drabbing. You may go so far.

    Reynaldo. My lord, that would dishonour him.

6 II, 1, 985
  • But, my good lord-
  • But, my good lord-
  • Polonius. Faith, no, as you may season it in the charge.
    You must not put another scandal on him,
    That he is open to incontinency.
    That's not my meaning. But breathe his faults so quaintly
    That they may seem the taints of liberty,
    The flash and outbreak of a fiery mind,
    A savageness in unreclaimed blood,
    Of general assault.

    Reynaldo. But, my good lord-

7 II, 1, 987
  • Ay, my lord,
    I would know that.
  • Ay, my lord,
    I would know that.
  • Polonius. Wherefore should you do this?

    Reynaldo. Ay, my lord,
    I would know that.

8 II, 1, 1001
  • Very good, my lord.
  • Very good, my lord.
  • Polonius. Marry, sir, here's my drift,
    And I believe it is a fetch of warrant.
    You laying these slight sullies on my son
    As 'twere a thing a little soil'd i' th' working,
    Mark you,
    Your party in converse, him you would sound,
    Having ever seen in the prenominate crimes
    The youth you breathe of guilty, be assur'd
    He closes with you in this consequence:
    'Good sir,' or so, or 'friend,' or 'gentleman'-
    According to the phrase or the addition
    Of man and country-

    Reynaldo. Very good, my lord.

9 II, 1, 1004
  • At 'closes in the consequence,' at 'friend or so,' and
  • At 'closes in the consequence,' at 'friend or so,' and
  • Polonius. And then, sir, does 'a this- 'a does- What was I about to say?
    By the mass, I was about to say something! Where did I leave?

    Reynaldo. At 'closes in the consequence,' at 'friend or so,' and

10 II, 1, 1021
  • My lord, I have.
  • My lord, I have.
  • Polonius. At 'closes in the consequence'- Ay, marry!
    He closes thus: 'I know the gentleman.
    I saw him yesterday, or t'other day,
    Or then, or then, with such or such; and, as you say,
    There was 'a gaming; there o'ertook in's rouse;
    There falling out at tennis'; or perchance,
    'I saw him enter such a house of sale,'
    Videlicet, a brothel, or so forth.
    See you now-
    Your bait of falsehood takes this carp of truth;
    And thus do we of wisdom and of reach,
    With windlasses and with assays of bias,
    By indirections find directions out.
    So, by my former lecture and advice,
    Shall you my son. You have me, have you not?

    Reynaldo. My lord, I have.

11 II, 1, 1023
  • Good my lord! [Going.]
  • Good my lord! [Going.]
  • Polonius. God b' wi' ye, fare ye well!

    Reynaldo. Good my lord! [Going.]

12 II, 1, 1025
  • I shall, my lord.
  • I shall, my lord.
  • Polonius. Observe his inclination in yourself.

    Reynaldo. I shall, my lord.

13 II, 1, 1027
  • Well, my lord.
  • Well, my lord.
  • Polonius. And let him ply his music.

    Reynaldo. Well, my lord.
