Ghost

[Beneath] Swear.

HAMLET

Ah, ha, boy! say’st thou so? art thou there,

truepenny?

Come on—you hear this fellow in the cellarage—

Consent to swear.

HORATIO

Propose the oath, my lord.

HAMLET

Never to speak of this that you have seen,

Swear by my sword.

Ghost

[Beneath] Swear.

HAMLET

Hic et ubique? then we’ll shift our ground.

Come hither, gentlemen,

And lay your hands again upon my sword:

Never to speak of this that you have heard,

Swear by my sword.

Ghost

[Beneath] Swear.

HAMLET

Well said, old mole! canst work i’ the earth so fast?

A worthy pioner! Once more remove, good friends.

HORATIO

O day and night, but this is wondrous strange!

HAMLET

And therefore as a stranger give it welcome.

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,

Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. But come;

Here, as before, never, so help you mercy,

How strange or odd soe’er I bear myself,

As I perchance hereafter shall think meet

To put an antic disposition on,

That you, at such times seeing me, never shall,

With arms encumber’d thus, or this headshake,

Or by pronouncing of some doubtful phrase,

As ‘Well, well, we know,’ or ‘We could, an if we would,’

Or ‘If we list to speak,’ or ‘There be, an if they might,’

Or such ambiguous giving out, to note

That you know aught of me: this not to do,

So grace and mercy at your most need help you, Swear.

Ghost

[Beneath] Swear.
