Romeo and Juliet

Lord Montague to Prince, Balthasar, Capulets’, watchman, page & Friar-Lady Montague has died over grief of Romeo’s exile “Alas, my liege, my wife is dead tonight; Grief of my son’s exile hath stopp’d her breath: What further woe conspires against mine age?”
Prince to everyone-he’s exiled Romeo out of Verona &if he’s found there he’ll be killed “I will be deaf to pleading and excuses; Nor tears nor prayers shal purchase out abuses: Therefore use none: let Romeo hence in haste, else, when he’s found, that hour is his last.”
Benvolio to Romeo-Romeo was still heartbroken over Rosaline so Benvolio asks him to attend the Capulet’s ball &consider other girls as options “Go thither; and, with unattained eye, Compare her face with some that I shall show, And I will make thee think thy swan a crow.”
Romeo to himself-he’s comparing Juliet and her beauty to the sun “But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.”
Balthasar to Romeo-he’s telling him that Juliet has died “I saw her laid low in her kindred’s vault And presently took post to tell it you: O, pardon me for bringing these ill news, Since you did leave it for my office, sir.”
Mercutio to Montague &Capulet households, Benvolio-he’s blaming them for his death “Help me into some house, Benvolio, Or i shall faint. A plague o’ both your houses! They have made worms’ meat of me: I have it, And soundly too: your houses!”
Lord Capulet to Juliet-he’ll no longer care for her &she’ll be alone on the streets unless she marries Paris “Thursday is near; lay hand on heart, advise: An you be mine, I’ll give you to my friend; And you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets.”
Apothecary to Romeo-he’s telling Romeo how to use the poison so that he may be with Juliet through death “Put this in any liquid thing you will, And drink it off; and, if you had the strength Of twenty men, it would dispatch you straight.”
Friar Lawrence to Romeo-he’s telling Romeo how to love Juliet. showing his true holy view of marriage “Therefore love moderately; long love doth so; Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.”
Paris to Romeo-he thinks Juliet died of grief over Tybalt. And now Romeo’s going to terrorize the dead bodies in the Capulet’s vault “This is that banish’d haughty Montague, That murder’d my love’s cousin, with which grief, It is supposed, the fair creature died; And here is come to do some villianous shame To the Dead bodies: I will apprehend him.”
Juliet to Romeo-she would love him no matter if his name was Romeo or any other “What’s in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet; So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call’d, Retain that dear perfection which he owes Without that title.”
Prologue-the fate of Romeo &Juliet “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.”
Tybalt to Benvolio-he’s starting their fight “What, drawn, and talk of peace! I hate the word, As I hate hell , all Montagues, and thee: Have at thee, coward!”
Lord Capulet to Juliet-he wants her to marry Paris so he set the date now “Marry, my child, early next Thursday morn, The gallant, young and noble gentleman, The County Paris, at Saint Peter’s Church, Shall happily make thee there a joyful bride.”
Nurse to Juliet-the nurse is making her impatient as she waits to tell her the news of Romeo (go to Friar’s for “confession” but instead marry) “Your love says, like an honest gentleman, and a courteous, and a kind, and a handsome, and, I warrant, a virtuous,–Where is your mother?”
