            ACT 2, SCENE 2

                                   (Flourish.  Enter King and Queen,
                                   ROSENCRANTZ and GUILDENSTERN, with
                                   attendants.)

                                   CLAUDIUS
            Rosencrantz and Guildenstern--you're here!  We've been
            waiting!

                                   GERTRUDE
            We're so pleased you've arrived!

                                   CLAUDIUS
            Welcome!

                                   ROSENCRANTZ & GUILDENSTERN
            R:  At your service.  G:  We're at your service.

                                   CLAUDIUS
            You've heard a little about Hamlet's transformation, and how
            he's not adjusting very well.

                                   ROSENCRANTZ & GUILDENSTERN
            R:  Yes, my lord.  G: (Nodding.)

                                   GERTRUDE
            He talks about you both, often.  No one else is as close to
            him as you two are.  I'm hoping just the sight of you will
            bring him back around to his self.

                                   CLAUDIUS
            Yes, we ask that you stay along with us for awhile.  Keep the
            prince company, try and cheer him up, and try to get a sense
            of what's afflicting him so badly.  It might be something we
            don't yet know about.

                                   GERTRUDE
            Your extended visit shall receive a royal recompense. 

                                   GUILDENSTERN
            As your loyal servants we give ourselves up in full bent.

                                   ROSENCRANTZ
            Our service is at your command.

                                   CLAUDIUS
            Excellent, then!

                                   GERTRUDE
            Thank you both--and please go to him now, right away.
            (Motioning to attendants.)  Bring these gentlemen to where
            Hamlet is.

                                   GUILDENSTERN
            We pray our presence is both pleasing to him, and helpful to
            the court.
