Quotes

  • Narrator: Something smelled rotten on the land of Denmark. The good king named Hameo had died.... a suspicious death rumored to be done by a serpent. But little did many suspect the real serpent lurked among them.
  • King Hamio: Hello to you.

Droopy: Hamio. Been a long time.

  • Hamlet: To be or not to be. This is the question.
  • Queen Gertrude: Hamlet. You got your dad much offended.

Hamlet; Mother. You got my father much offended.

  • Hamlet; Alas. Wretched, rash intruding boob... farewell.
  • Narrator: And so the events went. The few sent Hamlet away.... unaware of the damage done by the consequences of their actions.
  • Laertes: Oh, god. Is it possible a young maid's mind is as mortal as an old man's life. My sister!
  • Orphelia: Farewell, Hamlet... my love. I die for you to succeed in cleansing this poisoned land.
  • Hamlet: Alas poor Yorick.... I knew him well. A fellow with eternal jest. I knew him when I was young. So many days I remmebr when we played.

(flashbacks start)

  • (after flashbacks)

Hamlet: Now he's gone.

Droopy; Death comes to all, rich or poor. Yorick was lucky. He died from old age... much more peaceful than murder. I last saw... he died with a smile on his face. Zero beings live forever. Soon, we all die.

Hamlet: Yes. We all do.

  • Laertes: You destroyed my sister.

Hamlet: You did it yourself by abandoning her. You betrayed her. She and I. We loved eachother. You insult her memory by lying. You blame me coz you fear to accept her death was on your hands.

  • Osric: Remember to keep this a fair sword-fight. Zero dirty play or you'd forfeit it. May the best man win.
  • Hamlet; Tell my story to all who ask. Tell it well. The rest is silence.

(he dies)

(the lot mourn)

Droopy: Rest well, Hamlet. You earned it.

(Jerry is showing his brown-buttocks and tail at Tom)

Jerry: Hey Tom! you want to see my butt-tail.

Tom: (angrily red faces) Jerry! that's it I'm coming to get you.

Jerry: (gasps in horror) Uh-oh

(Tom Cat is chasing Jerry Mouse again)

Tom: Come back here, Ye rodent!!!!!!!

Jerry: Not likely!!!!
