and now my Lady Worm's; chapless, and/ knocked about the mazzard with a sexton's spade:/ here's fine revolution, an we had the trick to/ see't. Did these bones cost no more the breeding,/ but to play at loggats with 'em? mine ache to think on't.

Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio: a fellow/ of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: he hath/ borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how/ abhorred in my imagination it is! my gorge rims at/ it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know/ not how oft. Where be your gibes now? your/ gambols? your songs? your flashes of merriment,/ that were wont to set the table on a roar? Not one/ now, to mock your own grinning? quite chap-fallen?/ Now get you to my lady's chamber, and tell her, let/ her paint an inch thick, to this favour she must/ come; make her laugh at that.
Speaker: _______________Hamlet_____________________
Yorick is the kngs Jesture. Jest: Humor, endless jokes. Fancy is imagination.He is talking about the King's humor. He is in pain thinking of the memories. He is looking at the boes, and thinking about how he is terrified looking at the bones of someone he used to know, he is comforting death. He is verbllizing his thoughts of death. It is horrible thinking about his eperience with him while holding the bones. To Yorick: Where are your jokes now? If Yorick was alive right now, he would be making fun of himself. Chapfallin means without the lower jaw
To what base uses we may return, Horatio! ...Alexander died, Alexander was buried,/ Alexander returneth into dust; the dust is earth; of/ earth we make loam; and why of that loam, whereto he/ was converted, might they not stop a beer-barrel?/ Imperious Caesar, dead and turn'd to clay,/ Might stop a hole to keep the wind away:/ O, that that earth, which kept the world in awe,/ Should patch a wall to expel the winter flaw!
As England was his faithful tributary,/ As love between them like the palm might flourish,/ As peace should stiff her wheaten garland wear/ And stand a comma 'tween their amities, And many such-like 'As'es of great charge,/ That, on the view and knowing of these contents,/ Without debatement further, more or less,/ He should the bearers put to sudden death,/ Not shriving-time allow'd.
Speaker: Hamlet

He is playing revege to get revenge for them plotting Rsencrantz and Guidenstern for going against him. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern will deliver the fake letter to the King.
He that hath kill'd my king and whored my mother,/ Popp'd in between the election and my hopes,/ Thrown out his angle for my proper life,/ And with such cozenage--is't not perfect conscience,/ To quit him with this arm? and is't not to be damn'd,/ To let this canker of our nature come/ In further evil?
Speaker: Hamlet
Context/Significance: Talking about Claudius, it will be poetic justice to kill Claudius,Claudius has taken Hamlet's chance to be King, and it should make sense for Hamlet to kill Claudius. It would be a sin to let Claudius live. Halet feels like he has been the most harmed by Claudius.

If it be now,/ 'tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be/ now; if it be not now, yet it will come: the/ readiness is all: since no man has aught of what he/ leaves, what is't to leave betimes?Speaker: Hamlet Context/Significance: Augury: Prediction of the future.
