Slings & Arrows / Shakespeare online

Laura and I learned about Slings and Arrows from reading Fire up Netflix; you need to see the first two seasons of 'Slings and Arrows' before third starts. We took up Tim Goodman's advice and have been working ourselves through seasons 1 and 2. Watching the actors recite Shakespeare makes me want to commit more texts to memory.

BTW, how does one link to a specific spot in Shakespeare's plays? I see the use of an Act/Scene/line number reference system. Is that prevalent? For instance, I see from Hamlet that the beginning of Hamlet's "To be, or not to be: that is the question:" is Act III, Scene i, line 64. What versions of Shakespeare's text are in use? (In looking for ways to link directly to Hamlet, I found main, which an image of the 2nd Folio of Hamlet, III.i.)
