So again good night.

By this point in the play, even the audience might be clued in to the fact that when Hamlet says “Good Night” he’s probably about to keep talking. It might be the signal for a halfway point in a scene. It’s like Hamlet says, “I’m HALFWAY done talking with you” when he says “goodnight.” I mean, he might as well say, “I’m taking a breath before I keep talking for at least another page.”
