Favorite line of Shakespeare, "By my troth." I have no clue why i like it so much, but i do.

Actually, the American accents are closer to the accents Shakespeare was originally preformed in then modern English accents.

If I were more awake I could phrase that better, sorry.

I agree. It even makes me cringe when people perform plays with a British accent when they're set in other countries. (Hamlet, Macbeth, etc)
