[UPDATE] Paintover Update 11/22

There's a new Paintover...
Code:
Lead us from hence, where we may leisurely
Each one demand an answer to his part
Perform'd in this wide gap of time since first
We were dissever'd: hastily lead away.

It looks like Shakespeare (Act V. Scene III. The Winter's Tale). It is interesting to see that it was posted by "$hacker," which is probably a variable holding the name of the poster. Does that mean Caesar no longer exists in this world...?

It's from Shakespeare's a 'Winter's Tale', Act 5, Scene III

EDIT: Ah, BriEnigma, ya beat me too it!

Here's the full quote; it's at the end of Scene III, where Leontes is talking to Paulina:

EDIT: I highlighted the part quoted on PaintOver

LEONTES
O, peace, Paulina!
Thou shouldst a husband take by my consent,
As I by thine a wife: this is a match,
And made between's by vows. Thou hast found mine;
But how, is to be question'd; for I saw her,
As I thought, dead, and have in vain said many
A prayer upon her grave. I'll not seek far--
For him, I partly know his mind--to find thee
An honourable husband. Come, Camillo,
And take her by the hand, whose worth and honesty
Is richly noted and here justified
By us, a pair of kings. Let's from this place.
What! look upon my brother: both your pardons,
That e'er I put between your holy looks
My ill suspicion. This is your son-in-law,
And son unto the king, who, heavens directing,
Is troth-plight to your daughter. Good Paulina,
Lead us from hence, where we may leisurely
Each one demand an answer to his part
Perform'd in this wide gap of time since first
We were dissever'd: hastily lead away.

Doesn't it sound exactly like something one of them would say in the situation they're in right now? Lead away [from this world]? Demanding answers?
