Polonius makes every effort to agree with Hamlet:
Do you see yonder cloud that’s almost in shape of a camel?
By the mass, and ‘tis like a camel, indeed.
Methinks it is like a weasel.
It is backed like a weasel.
Or like a whale?
Very like a whale.
In the same way, Prufrock attempts to find out what women want from him.
