Ace: You know I never read any plays by Shakespeare before, so I went to the library and took one out.
Deuce: Which one?
Ace: Romeo and Juliet.
Deuce: What did you think about it?
Ace: I wasn't impressed.
Deuce: What? Why not?
Ace: The play was full of cliches.
"But soft -- what light through yonder window breaks?"
"Romeo, Romeo. Wherefore art thou, Romeo?"
"A plague on both your houses!"
I've heard them before. That Shakespeare's a damn thief. He stole those quotes from other people, put them in his plays and called it his own work.
Deuce: Shakespeare wrote those lines, idiot. Back in the 1590s.
Ace: So he didn't take those lines from other people, but they took those lines from him?
Ace: Well then -- never mind. Guess the joke's on me.
