Laertes, Drama Queen!

Except, of course, he’s right.

He’ll live long enough to ask forgiveness and then that’s it for Laertes.

It is such a beautifully dramatic line – but if I said it, like, in literally any context, it would be ridiculous. Even if I said it on my actual deathbed. But Laertes can get away with it.
