What is the dramatic purpose of Scene IV?

sorry Act 4 scene 4

This scene reminds Hamlet of his purpose.

"Act IV, scene iv restores the focus of the play to the theme of human action. Hamlet’s encounter with the Norwegian captain serves to remind the reader of Fortinbras’s presence in the world of the play and gives Hamlet another example of the will to action that he lacks. "
