Are together in eternity

"Suspicious Minds" by Elvis has several allusions to Othello

I can't walk out

Why can't you see
What you're doing to me

We can't go on together
With suspicious minds
And we can't build our dreams
On suspicious minds

So, if an old friend I know
Drops by to say hello
Would I still see suspicion in your eyes?
There is a reference to Shakespeare in which movie?
a. Willy Wonka
b. Star Trek VI
c. Robin Hood: Men in Tights
d. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Trick question!

There is an allusion to Shakespeare in ALL of them!
Richard III
Julius Caesar
"Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears!"

Fire burn and cauldron bubble
Double, double, toil and trouble
Something wicked this way comes.

The most benevolent king communicates through your dreams
Much Ado About Nothing
