From Dr. Tristan Voltaire, PhD:

fussellClerk

Upon being ordered to issue marriage licenses to gays and lesbians, clerk Ronnie Fussell responded by quoting Shakespeare’s Hamlet, advising those who have not yet married to “get thee to a nunnery!” He continued,

Branagh

  I say, we will have no more marriages:
   Those that are married already, all but one, shall
   Live; the rest shall keep as they are. To a
   Nunnery, go.”

He was quoting Act 3, scene 1, 146-149. And we respond to Fussell with Ophelia’s words at line 150: “O, what a noble mind is here overthrown!”
