Boats and BoxesHere are two funny things from Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead. I often want to refer to one or the other, but nobody ever knows what I'm talking about. So, I thought I'd post them here, I'm sure that will help.
Here you need to know that Ros. and Guil. are on a boat.
ROS: We might as well be dead. Do you think death could possibly be a boat?
Here you don't need to know anything particular.
ROS: It could go on for ever. Well, not for ever, I suppose. (Pause.) Do you ever think of yourself as actually dead, lying in a box with a lid on it?
