Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
PLAYER: Yes, we were dead lucky there. If that's the word I'm after.
ROS (not a pick up): Dead?
ROS (he means): Is he dead? (3.284-287)
ROS (mournfully): Not even England. I don't believe in it anyway.
GUIL: Just a conspiracy of cartographers, you mean. (3.163-166)
ROS: I wish I was dead. (Considers the drop.) I could jump over the side. That would put a spoke in their wheel.
GUIL: Unless they're counting on it.
ROS: I shall remain on board. That'll put a spoke in their wheel. (3.177)
