In The Witcher 3, there is a quest called The Play's the Thing where Geralt of Rivia participates in a scheme to expose a doppler named Dudu. While the quest is meant to be amusing, choosing the correct lines to progress the story can also be challenging. At the quest's beginning, you can choose between a tragedy or a comedy genre for the play. Regardless of which genre you choose, the same five lines will be given to you to memorize during the play. The only difference between the tragedy and comedy options is how the quest ends - selecting a tragedy will lead to a fight. When given the script, be sure to pay attention to the lines, as you will not be able to refer back to them during the game.
