                                   (Elsinore at midnight.  FRANCISCO, a
                                   guard, is about to go off-duty.
                                   BARNARDO approaches from the dark.)

            Who's that?

            Long live the king.

            Barnardo--I'm glad you're on time.

            Twelve o'clock, straight up.  Anything unusual tonight?

            Nothing, not even a mouse.  Just the cold, the last couple
            hours have been brutal.

            Well, you're finished now.  Get yourself into a warm bed and
            sleep, and if you see Horatio and Marcellus, tell them to--

            I think I hear them.

                                   (HORATIO and MARCELLUS enter.)

                                   HORATIO & MARCELLUS
            Long live the king.

                                   BARNARDO & FRANCISCO
            Long live the king.

                          (to Francisco)
            How did your watch go?

            Quiet and cold.  Have a good night.

                                   (Francisco exits.)

                          (to Barnardo, about Francisco)
            So then he didn't see it?

                          (to Barnardo, about Horatio)
            He insists it's just our imaginations.
