"The lady doth protest too much" Hamlet Act 3, sce

I constantly see the Neuro medical community debunking CCSVI and although not a Shakespeare fan I think the likeness of them to the following is appropriate.

Hamlet Act 3, scene 2, 222–230

Player Queen:
Both here and hence pursue me lasting strife,
If once I be a widow, ever I be a wife!


Player King:
'Tis deeply sworn. Sweet, leave me here a while,
My spirits grow dull, and fain I would beguile
The tedious day with sleep.


Player Queen:
Sleep rock thy brain,
And never come mischance between us twain!


Hamlet:
Madam, how like you this play?


Queen:
The lady doth protest too much, methinks

The queen in the play, like Gertrude, seems too deeply attached to her first husband to ever even consider remarrying; Gertrude, however, after the death of Hamlet's father, has remarried. We don't know whether Gertrude ever made the same sorts of promises to Hamlet's father that the Player Queen makes to the Player King (who will soon be murdered)—but the irony of her response should be clear.
