"Kill Claudius"
"Just as I am pulling my punch, Gertrude storms into the room.
"Hamlet!" she snaps. "How many times have I told you NOT to murder your relatives! I know it's difficult for a Shakespearian lead, but..."
I grudgingly apologise to both of them. Gertrude leaves, mollified."

This is great.
I still have STARCROSS by Infocom in the original box.

"Take own life"
"I do not understand what you want me to pick up."

Love it.
