Act I, Scene 3
Elsinore. A room in the house of Polonius.
Ophelia: He hath, my lord, of late made many tenders
Of his affection to me.
Polonius: Affection? Pooh! You speak like a green girl,
Unsifted in such perilous circumstance.
Do you believe his tenders, as you call them?
Ophelia: I do not know, my lord, what I should think,
Polonius: Marry, I will teach you! Think yourself a baby
That you have ta'en these tenders for true pay,
Which are not sterling. Tender yourself more dearly,
Or (not to crack the wind of the poor phrase,
Running it thus) you'll tender me a fool.
