ACT 4, SCENE 3

                                   (Enter the King and two or three
                                   Lords.)

                                   CLAUDIUS
            That he goes loose!  We cannot charge him, the people love
            him; if we charge him, they'll revolt--so we send him off
            under careful cover.  He's a threat we may not recover from
            if things do not go as we manage.

                                   (Claudius takes que from attendant.)

                                   CLAUDIUS (CONT'D)
            Send them in.

                                   (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern enter.)


                                   CLAUDIUS
            What then?

                                   ROSENCRANTZ
            We can't get it out of him.

                                   CLAUDIUS
            Where is he?

                                   ROSENCRANTZ
            Outside, my lord, guarded; at your pleasure.

                                   CLAUDIUS
            Bring the prince in.

                                   (Hamlet enters under guard.)

                                   CLAUDIUS
            Where's Polonius?

                                   HAMLET
            At supper.

                                   CLAUDIUS
            Where?

                                   HAMLET
            Where does he eat?  Or where is he eaten?  Our emperors of
            diet are busy with him.  Right?  If we fatten creatures to
            fatten ourselves, only to fatten worms, then a king and a
            beggar are but two courses served upon the same table.  No?
