    Here is that speech I was banging on about:

    SEYTON: The Queen, my lord, is dead.

    MACBETH: She should have died hereafter;
    There would have been time for such a word.
    Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
    To the last syllable of recorded time,
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
    That struts and threats his hour upon the stage,
    And then is heard of no more; it is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
    Signifying nothing.

    Now, that's just fabulous

    Technically it's not a soliloquy, as the speaker has to be alone on stage. But it's a great speech (which is an easier word to spell, too! )

    "Random joker guy"?! If I remember rightly, that's Feste the Fool, the most intelligent and amazing character in Twelfth Night!
