“I have interest in your hearts’ proceedings; My blood for your rude brawls doth lie-a-bleeding.” Prince
“O now be gone, more light and light it grows.” Juliet
“More light and light; more dark and dark our woes.” Romeo
“The ape is dead, and I must conjure him. I conjure thee by Rosaline’s bright eyes, But her high forehead and her scarlet lip, By her fine foot, straight leg, and quivering thigh, And the demesnes that thee adjacent lie, That in thy likeness thou appear to us!” Mercutio
“But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the Sun! Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief That thou her maid art far more fair than she. Be not her maid, since she is envious, Her vestal livery is but sick and green, And none but fools do wear it. Cast it off. It is my lady; O, it is my love! O that she knew she were!” Romeo
“Tybalt the kinsman to old Capulet, Hath sent a letter to his father’s house.” Benvolio
“A challenge, on my life.” Mercutio
“Scurvy knave! I am none of this flirt-gills; I am none of his skeans-mates, [To Peter] And thou must stand by too, and suffer every knave to use me at his pleasure!” Nurse
“No, ’tis not so deep as a well, nor so wide as a church door; but ’tis enough, ’twill serve. Ask for me tomorrow and you shall fine me a grave man. I am peppered I warrant for this world. A plague a both your houses! Zounds, a dog, a rat, a mouse, a cat, to scratch a man to death! a braggart,a rogue, a villain, that fights by the book of arithmetic! Why the devil came you between us? I was hurt under your arm.” Mercutio
“O sweet Juliet, Thy beauty hath made me effeminate And in my temper softened valor’s steel!” Romeo
“This day’s black fate on more days doth depend; This but begins the woe others must end.” Romeo
“Now, Tybalt, take the “villain” back again That late thou gavest me; for Mercutio’s soul Is but a little way above our heads, Staying for thine to keep him company. Either thou or I, or both, must go with him.” Romeo
“And for that offense Immediately we do exile him hence.” Prince
“Let Romeo hence in haste, Else, when he is found, that hour is his last.” Prince
“There’s no trust, No faith, no honesty in men; all prejured, All forsworn, all naught, all dissemblers. Ah, where’s my man? Give me some aqua vitae. These griefs, these woes, these sorrows make me old- Shame come to Romeo!” Nurse
“Blistered be thy tongue For such a wish! He was not born to shame. Upon his brow shame is ashamed to sit, For ’tis a throne where honor may be crowned Sole monarch of the universal earth. O, what a beast was I to chide at him!” Juliet
“But wherefore, villain, didst thou kill my cousin? That villain cousin would have killed my husband.” Juliet
“My husband lives, that Tybalt would have slain; And Tybalt’s death, that would have slain my husband.” Juliet
“”Tybalt is dead, and Romeo — banishèd.” That “banishèd,” that one word “banishèd,” Hath slain ten thousand Tybalts.” Juliet
“O, think’st thou we shall ever meet agian?” Juliet
“I doubt it not; and all these woes shall serve For sweet discourses in our times to come.” Romeo
“O God, I have an ill-divining soul! Methinks I see thee, now thou art so low, As one dead in the bottom of a tomb. Either my eyesight fails, or thou lookest pale.” Juliet
“And trust me, love, in my eye so do you. Dry sorrow drinks our blood. Adieu, adieu!” Romeo
“Some grief shows much love; But much of grief shows still some want of wit.” Lady Capulet
“Hang thee young baggage, disobedient wretch! I tell thee what– get thee to church a Tuesday Or never after look me in the face. Speak not, reply not, do not answer me! My fingers itch. Wife we scare thought us blest That God had lent us but this only child; But now I see this one is one too much, And that we have a curse in having her. Out on her hiding!” Lord Capulet
“If in thy wisdom thou canst give no help. Do thou but call my resolution wise And with this knife I’ll help it presently.” Juliet
“Hold, daughter. I do spy a kind of hope, Which craves as desperate an execution As that is desperate which we would prevent. If rather, than to marry County Paris, Thou has the strength of will to slay thyself, Then it is likely thou wilt undertake A thing like death to chide away this shame, That cop’st with death himself to scape from it; And, if thou darest, I’ll give thee remedy.” Friar Laurence
“How now, my headstrong? Where have you been gadding?” Lord Capulet
“Send for the country. Go tell him of this. I’ll have this knot knit up tomorrow morning.” Lord Capulet
“I dreamt my lady came and found me dead (Strange dream that gives a dead man leave to think!) And breathed such life with kisses in my lips That I revived and was an emperor.” Romeo
“Then she is well, and nothing can be ill. Her body sleeps in the Capel’s monument, And her immortal part with angels lives. I saw her laid low in her kindred’s vault And presently took post to tell you. O, pardon me for bringing these ill news, Since you did leave it for my office, sir.” Balthasar
“Is it e’en so? Then I defy you stars! Thou knowest my lodging. Get me ink and paper And hire post-horses. I will hence tonight.” Romeo
“My poverty but not my will consents.” Apothecary
“Going to fine a barefoot brother out. One of our order, to associate me Here in this city visiting the sick, And finding him, the searchers of the town, Where the infectious pestilence did reign, Scaled up my doors, and would not let us forth, So that my speed to Mantua there was stayed.” Friar John
“The dashing rocks thy seasick weary bark! Here’s to my love! [Drinks.] O true apothecary! Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die.” Romeo
“Saint Francis be my speed!” Friar Laurence
“I hear some noise. Lady, come from that nest Of death, contagion, and unnatural sleep. A greater power than we can contradict Hath thwarted our intents. Come, come away. Thy husband in thy bosom there lies dead; And Paris too. Come, I’ll dispose of thee Among a sisterhood of holy nuns. Stay not to question, for the wrath is coming. Come, go, good Juliet. I dare no longer stay.” Friar Laurence
“Poison, I see, hath been his timeless end. O chur! drunk all, and left no friendly drop To help me after? I will kiss thy lips. Haply some poison yet doth hang on them To make me die with a restorative. [Kisses him.] Thy lips are warm!” Juliet
“Yea, noise? Then I’ll be brief. O happy dagger! [Takes Romeo’s dagger.] This is thy sheath; there rust, and let me die.” Juliet
“This letter doth make good the friar’s words, Their course of love, the tidings of her death, And here he writes that he did buy a poison Of a poor pothercary, and therewithal Came to this vault to die, and lie with Juliet. Where be these enemies? Capulet, Montague, See what a scourge is laid upon your hate, That heaven finds mean to kill your joys with love. And I, for winking at your discords too, Have lost a brace of kinsmen. All are punished.” Prince
“O Brother Montague, give me thy hand. This is my daughter’s jointure, for no more Can I demand.” Lord Capulet
“But I can give thee more; For I will raise her statue in pure gold, That whiles Verona by that name is known, There shall no figure at such a rate be set As that of true faithful Juliet.” Lord Montague
“As rich shall Romeo’s by his lady’s lie — Poor sacrifices of out enmity!” Lord Capulet
“A glooming peace this morning with it brings. The sun for sorrow will not show his head. Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things; Some shall be pardoned, and some punishèd; For never was a story of more woe Than this of Juliet and her Romeo. [Exeunt omnes.]” Prince
