Hamlet, Everywhere

Geoff Klock dug up clips from 198 movies and TV shows quoting Hamlet, from The Simpsons to Boy Meets World to Star Trek and beyond, and whittled them down to just under 15 minutes.

Of course, there are even more movies and shows he could have drawn from, as various YouTube commenters have noted. Klock says he is working on another cut. What else should he include?
