Like Polonius, Like Laertes

Act I, Scene 3 
OPHELIA
And hath given countenance to his speech, my lord,
With almost all the holy vows of heaven.
LORD POLONIUS
Ay, springes to catch woodcocks.



Act V, Scene 2 
OSRIC
How is’t, Laertes? 
LAERTES
Why, as a woodcock to mine own springe, Osric;
I am justly kill’d with mine own treachery.
Never noticed that before.
