ACT 3, SCENE 4

                                   (The Queen sits in her chamber,
                                   Polonius enters.)

                                   POLONIUS
            Your majesty, the prince will be here at any moment.  (He
            moves towards tapestry.)  Simply be clear with him that his
            behavior will not be tolerated--that you've already shielded
            him from censure.

                                   GERTRUDE
            I hear him coming.

                                   POLONIUS
            Be firm, I'll be here.

                                   (Polonius hides, Hamlet enters.)

                                   HAMLET
            Now, mother, what's the matter?

                                   GERTRUDE
            Hamlet, you have offended your father, greatly.

                                   HAMLET
            Mother, you have offended my father, greatly.

                                   GERTRUDE
            Do not play games with me.

                                   HAMLET
            I request you not do the same.

                                   GERTRUDE
            Hamlet, please....

                                   HAMLET
            What?

                                   GERTRUDE
            Have you forgotten who I am?

                                   HAMLET
            No, I haven't.  You are the Queen, your husband's brother's
            wife--or otherwise--my mother.

                                   GERTRUDE
            I'll bring in someone else to speak with you.
