ACT 2, SCENE 1

(Enter Polonius and Reynaldo.)

POLONIUS
Get to Paris and give him this money and these notes. Have a
look around. Find out where the Danes drink and supper,
where they lodge. But only let on you have a distant
knowledge of Laertes; that you know his father, some of his
friends--right?

REYNALDO
Yes my lord.

POLONIUS
When you mention him, say you've heard he can get a little
wild. Nothing to dishonor him, just things common to youth
and liberty.

REYNALDO
Like gambling?


POLONIUS
Yes, gambling, drinking, fencing--but play it lightly, as if
they're just flashes of a fiery mind.

REYNALDO
Yes, my lord.

POLONIUS
Your indirections will find directions.

REYNALDO
Yes my lord.

POLONIUS
Very well then, go and observe.

REYNALDO
Yes my lord.

(He bows and exits. Ophelia enters
upset.)

POLONIUS
Ophelia, what's the matter?

OPHELIA
Oh my lord, my lord, I'm so frightened.

POLONIUS
In god's name, with what?
