Your sister’s drown’d, Laertes.

The Queen just cuts right to the chase. She’s not stalling. She doesn’t start with “This is hard to say.” And some other gearing up phraseology. No, she just comes right out and tells Laertes the terrible facts.

If she weren’t the Queen of Denmark, she’d make a pretty good cop or a doctor.

I’d like this sort of person to be the one to tell me bad news.
