    It's on. A "Bard Off"

    Migrating this fight over from the PlagueWatch thread.

    First round, my rules. I throw Shakespeare quotes at you and you come back with which play they are from. The first round is 5 quotes. No googling, if you don't know it, you don't know it. I'll put a couple of easy ones in there. You get to think of the rules for the second round.

    Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day.

    My response is told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.

    I'm pretty sure it's not Hamlet. I've read 8ish I think and while I wouldn't remember every line, I think I'd remember most of the famous lines. Boston suggested this was the first, that it would be well known, and probably from one of the biggies...the two biggies I haven't read are Macbeth and King Lear so I'm guessing one of those two.

    I'm going with Macbeth.

    Lin Manuel Miranda is a theater god, he is not The Bard. This is a Bard Off.

    Understood. No need to cry havoc. Or let slip the dogs of war.

    Though I appear to have instigated this thread, I can't begin to compete. Ergo, I'm out.

    I'll give more time to answer with the rest of the quotes. I thought this was an easy one. Many of you got it. It's Macbeth, Act V, Scene 5. Macbeth has just been told the queen is dead.

    Here's Ian McKellan doing it.

    IMHO, most filmed versions of the play encourage way too much scenery chewing with this speech or, even worse, do it in voice over. It loses some power when it's done in voice over.

    Juliet says it near the end of the balcony scene.

    Ah! We've discussed our shared acting in this one! I was Theseus and, if I recall correctly, this line was uttered shortly after I exited stage left (or right) in Act 1 Scene 1!


    Edited to add: When I played Theseus, I had a crush on Hermia so was actually pissed at the Lysander. End edit.

    The next one is a quote I'm sure you have all heard, but which play? This one, I expect will be a hard one.

    First thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.
