moe: one final question, sir?

what would you say is the difference between involvement and commitment?

joe: certainly. Let me just say this about that:

I still can't recognize anything that stands out as FF.

Forgive and forget? Far flung? Fast and furious? Freedom fighters? 255?

The quote is English, actually, and, although quite well known, the answer might require some calculation.

There are more things in the clues than are dreamt of in all your answers.

The answer now must be accompanied by an interpretation of each.

Although I expect that if any of them are discerned, they all will become clear.

Yes. Congratulations!

Can you get the rest of the clues, and decode the quotation itself?

The coveted bonanova Gold Star will be the prize. :)

To be or not to be, that is the question.

[spoiler='The clues explained']

  1. Rotten, Denmark The setting
  2. It either begins in 'and' or else __ __ in 'or' Elsinore The castle
  3. moe: one final question, sir?
    what would you say is the difference between involvement and commitment?

    joe: certainly. Let me just say this about that: the Capitalized Words
    to make Ham and eggs, the chicken is involved, while the pig is committed.

  4. upon a few bits 0010 1011 of text was cast a spell hex. => 2B
  5. The quote is English, actually, and, although quite well known,
    the answer might require some calculation OR.
    FF = 1111 1111 = (0010 1011) v (1101 0100) = 2B v ~2B

    And that (FF) is the question! FF?

  6. tragically, There are more things in the clues than are dreamt of in the answers.
