HORATIO

There needs no ghost, my lord, come from the grave

To tell us this.

HAMLET

Why, right; you are i’ the right;

And so, without more circumstance at all,

I hold it fit that we shake hands and part:

You, as your business and desire shall point you;

For every man has business and desire,

Such as it is; and for mine own poor part,

Look you, I’ll go pray.

HORATIO

These are but wild and whirling words, my lord.

HAMLET

I’m sorry they offend you, heartily;

Yes, ‘faith heartily.

HORATIO

There’s no offence, my lord.

HAMLET

Yes, by Saint Patrick, but there is, Horatio,

And much offence too. Touching this vision here,

It is an honest ghost, that let me tell you:

For your desire to know what is between us,

O’ermaster ‘t as you may. And now, good friends,

As you are friends, scholars and soldiers,

Give me one poor request.

HORATIO

What is’t, my lord? we will.

HAMLET

Never make known what you have seen to-night.

HORATIO MARCELLUS

My lord, we will not.

HAMLET

Nay, but swear’t.

HORATIO

In faith,

My lord, not I.

MARCELLUS

Nor I, my lord, in faith.

HAMLET

Upon my sword.

MARCELLUS

We have sworn, my lord, already.

HAMLET

Indeed, upon my sword, indeed.
