Is in his retirement marvelous distempered.

Seriously. Whose phrasing is this? Is it Guildenstern’s? We don’t have a LOT of his phraseology to know if this is possibly characteristic. It doesn’t SEEM like the terse Guildenstern we know. It doesn’t sound like Gertrude either, really. It’s a little more Polonius sounding – truth be told. This is his kind of phrasing. I might think he’d been sent from him with something to say. But he goes on talking this way.
Maybe Guildenstern was/is ambitious to become a Polonius and is beginning to ape his style. It is so very different than how he was.
