Just a note, for future reference. If I happen to go mad, the way to call me back is not with “pretty.” If you’re trying to get through to me the way Claudius is (theoretically) trying to get through to Ophelia, “pretty” is not going to do it. I think it will probably not be effective for most women. The one possible exception I can think of would be Blanche DuBois. She might respond to “pretty.” But even Blanche would need more than Pretty to call her back.
