Two households,

both alike in dignity,

in Fair Verona,

where we lay our scene,

from ancient grudge

break to new mutiny,

where civil blood

makes civil hands unclean.

And so the prince

has called a tournament

to keep the battle

from the city streets.

Now rival Capulets

and Montagues,

they try their strength

to gain the royal ring.


Ride, cousin!







We here declare Mercutio,

from the house of Montague,

our champion.

And so I bid you all

enjoy the day.



Juliet, please.

My lady and my lord

will soon be home

with news of

the tournament.

Then hurry, nurse.

Why do you dally so?

Oh, I should so hurry

till my heart gives out.

Your heart is made

of sterner stuff than that.

Your heart is made

of sterner stuff...


...that you should laugh

to see me so wore out.

I keep you fast to make you

young and strong.


what about this one?



Do you not choke to see Lord

Tybalt bested by a Montague dog?

Leave it. The quarrel

is between our masters.

The quarrel is between

our masters and us, their men.





Put down your sword!

You know not what you do.

Hold up there.

Turn now, Benvolio,

and look upon thy death.

Tybalt, I do

but keep the peace.

Put up your sword or manage it

to part these men with me.

What? Do you draw your sword

and talk of peace?

I hate the word

as I hate hell,

all Montagues and thee.

Back, Tybalt!

You argue with a child.

Turn now and fight

your equal if you dare.


Old Montague doth flourish

his blade in spite of me!

- No!

- Enough!


The prince! The prince!

Rebellious subjects!

Stop this!

Enemies to peace would stain

the pleasure of a tournament

with bitter blood?

Throw your ill-tempered weapons

to the ground...

...and hear the sentence

of your angry prince.

Three civil brawls,

bred of a foolish word by thee,

Lord Capulet or Montague,

have thrice destroyed

the calm of our streets.

If ever you disturb

our town again,

your lives will pay the price

for the offense.

You, Capulet,

you go along with me.

And, Montague,

come you this afternoon.

And now, on pain of death,

all fighting men depart.


- Good afternoon, my cousin.

- Is it so?

I thought it should be night.

Not much past 4:

When I am sad,

the hours seem long.


What sadness

lengthens Romeo's hours?

I lack the thing which, if I had

it, would make them short.

I see. You're in love.

- How was the tournament?

- It served its turn... launch another

clash with Capulets.

So you must fence with hate,

and I with love.

Love is a harsh tyrant

where he rules.

(SIGHS) Love is a smoke,

raised on the fume of sighs,

a madness drenched in syrup

and choked with rage.

May I not know

who it is you love?

I love a woman.

- That much I found unaided.

- Who loves me not.

Sweet cousin, say not so,

but may I have a name?



- The niece of Lord Capulet?

- The same.

Be ruled by me

and forget to think of her.

Oh, teach me how I

should forget to think.

Love will not

call on you but once,

nor stay forever

when he comes.

Release your eyes.

Be glad she does not care.

- Examine other beauties.

- To what purpose?

Cousin, I pray

you change your mind.

My child is still a stranger

to this world.

Let two more summers
