Romeo and Juliet

Synopsis: The Montagues and the Capulets, two powerful families of Verona, hate each other. Romeo, son of Montague, crashes a Capulet party, and there meets Juliet, daughter of Capulet. They fall passionately in love. Since their families would disapprove, they marry in secret. Romeo gets in a fight with Tybalt, nephew of Lady Capulet, and kills him. He is banished from Verona. Capulet, not knowing that his daughter is already married, proceeds with his plans to marry Juliet to Paris, a prince. This puts Juliet in quite a spot, so she goes to the sympathetic Friar Laurence, who married her to Romeo. He suggests a daring plan to extricate her from her fix. Tragedy ensues.

And, by my halidom, the pretty wretch

left crying, and said, "Ay."

To see now how a jest may come about.

I warrant, and I should live

a thousand years, I never should forget it.

"Wilt thou not, Jule?" quoth he.

And, pretty fool, it

stinted and said, "Ay."

Enough of this. I pray

thee, hold thy peace.

Peace, I have done.

God mark thee to his grace.

Thou wast the prettiest babe

that e'er I nursed.

And I might live to see thee married once,

I have my wish.

Marry, that "marry" is the very theme

I came to talk of.

Tell me, daughter Juliet,

how stands your disposition

to be married?

It is an honor that I dream not of.

Well, think of marriage now.

The valiant Paris seeks you for his love.

My will to her consent is but a part.

Oh, a man, young lady.

Lady, such a man as all the world.

Why, he's a man of wax.

Verona's summer hath not such a flower.

Nay, he's a flower. In

faith, a very flower.

What say you?

Can you love the gentleman?

This night you shall

behold him at our feast.

Speak briefly. Can you like of Paris' love?

I'll look to like, if looking liking move.

But no more deep will I endart mine eye

than your consent

gives strength to make it fly.

Good morrow, cousin.

Is the day so young?

But new struck 9:00.

And here I hit it right,

our Romeo has not been in bed tonight.

Ay me, sad hours seem long.

What sadness lengthens Romeo's hours?

Not having that which having

makes them short.

- In love?

- Out.

- Of love?

- Out of her favor where I am in love.

Jesu Maria! What a deal of brine hath

washed thy sallow cheek for Rosaline.


Dost thou not laugh?

No, coz, I rather weep.

- Good heart, at what?

- At thy good heart's oppression.

Why, such is love's transgression.

Love is a smoke

raised with the fume of sighs,
