1

I,1,19

And liegemen to the Dane.

2

I,1,21

O, farewell, honest soldier.
Who hath reliev'd you?

3

I,1,25

Holla, Bernardo!

4

I,1,30

What, has this thing appear'd again to-night?

5

I,1,32

Horatio says 'tis but our fantasy,
And will not let belief take hold of him
Touching this dreaded sight, twice seen of us.
Therefore I have entreated him along,
With us to watch the minutes of this night,
That, if again this apparition come,
He may approve our eyes and speak to it.

6

I,1,52

Peace! break thee off! Look where it comes again!

7

I,1,54

Thou art a scholar; speak to it, Horatio.

8

I,1,58

Question it, Horatio.

9

I,1,63

It is offended.

10

I,1,67

'Tis gone and will not answer.

11

I,1,74

Is it not like the King?

12

I,1,81

Thus twice before, and jump at this dead hour,
With martial stalk hath he gone by our watch.

13

I,1,86

Good now, sit down, and tell me he that knows,
Why this same strict and most observant watch
So nightly toils the subject of the land,
And why such daily cast of brazen cannon
And foreign mart for implements of war;
Why such impress of shipwrights, whose sore task
Does not divide the Sunday from the week.
What might be toward, that this sweaty haste
Doth make the night joint-labourer with the day?
Who is't that can inform me?

14

I,1,160

Shall I strike at it with my partisan?

15

I,1,164

'Tis gone!
[Exit Ghost.]
We do it wrong, being so majestical,
To offer it the show of violence;
For it is as the air, invulnerable,
And our vain blows malicious mockery.

16

I,1,180

It faded on the crowing of the cock.
Some say that ever, 'gainst that season comes
Wherein our Saviour's birth is celebrated,
The bird of dawning singeth all night long;
And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad,
The nights are wholesome, then no planets strike,
No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm,
So hallow'd and so gracious is the time.

17

I,2,372

My good lord!

18

I,2,423

My lord, upon the platform where we watch'd.

19

I,2,438

[with Bernardo] We do, my lord.

20

I,2,440

[with Bernardo] Arm'd, my lord.

21

I,2,442

[with Bernardo] My lord, from head to foot.

22

I,2,455

[with Bernardo] Longer, longer.

23

I,4,630

No, it is struck.

24

I,4,691

Look with what courteous action
It waves you to a more removed ground.
But do not go with it!

25

I,4,714

You shall not go, my lord.

26

I,4,726

Let's follow. 'Tis not fit thus to obey him.

27

I,4,728

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

28

I,4,730

Nay, let's follow him.

29

I,5,853

Lord Hamlet!

30

I,5,856

Illo, ho, ho, my lord!

31

I,5,858

How is't, my noble lord?

32

I,5,860

O, wonderful!

33

I,5,864

Nor I, my lord.

34

I,5,867

[with Horatio] Ay, by heaven, my lord.

35

I,5,892

[with Horatio] My lord, we will not.

36

I,5,896

Nor I, my lord- in faith.

37

I,5,898

We have sworn, my lord, already.
