Romeo and Juliet Act 3

I pray thee, Mercutio, let’s retire. The day is hot, the Capulets abroad, And if we meet, we shall not scape a brawl, For now, these hot days, is the mad blood stirring. Benvolio to Mercutio 3.1
I am hurt. A plague o’ both your houses! I am sped… Ask for me tomorrow, and you shall find me a grave man. I am peppered, I warrant, for this world. A plague o’ 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 blood of arithmetic! Why the devil came you between us? I was hurt under your arm. Mercutio to Romeo and bystanders 3.1
I do protest I never injured thee, But love thee better than thou canst devise Till thou shalt know the reason of m love; And so, good Capulet, which name I tender As dearly as my own, be satisfied. Romeo to Tybalt 3.1
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 you or I, or both, must go with him. Romeo to Tybalt 3.1
I beg for justice, which thou, the Prince, must give. Romeo slew Tybalt; Romeo must not live. Lady Capulet to Prince Escalus 3.1
And for that offense Immediately we do exile him hence. …Let Romeo hence in haste, Else, when he is found, that hour is his last. Bear hence this body, and attend our will. Mercy but murders, pardoning those that kill. Prince to bystanders 3.1
What devil art thou that dost torment me this? This torture should be roared in dismal hell. Hath Romeo slain himself? Say thou but “I”, And that bare vowel “I” shall poison more Than the death darting eye of a cockatrice. Juliet to Nurse 3.2
O, break, my heart! Poor bankrout, break at once! To prison, eyes; ne’er look on Liberty! Vile earth, to earth resign; end motion here, And thou and Romeo press on heavy bier! Juliet to Nurse 3.2
But with rearward following Tybalt’s death, “Romeo is banished”-to speak that word Is father, mother, Tybalt, Romeo, Juliet All slain, all dead. “Romeo is banished”-There is no end, no limit, measure, bound, In that word’s death; no words can that woe sound. Juliet to Nurse 3.2
Come cords, come nurse. I’ll go to my wedding bed; And death, not Romeo, take my maidenhead! Juliet to Nurse 3.2
Ha, banishment? Be merciful, say “death”; For exile hath more terror in his look, Much more than death. Do not say “banishment”. Romeo to Friar Laurence 3.3
O deadly sin! O rude unthankfulness! Thy fault outlaw calls death; but the kind Prince, Taking thy part, hath rushed aside the law, And turned that black word death to banishment. This is dear mercy, and thou seest is not. Friar Laurence to Romeo 3.3
Hold thy desperate hand. Art thou a man? Thy form cries out thou art; Thy tears are womanish. Friar Laurence to Romeo 3.3
Monday! Ha, ha! Wednesday is too soon, A Thursday let it be-a Thursday, tell her, She shall be married to this noble earl. Will you be ready? Do you like this haste? We’ll keep no great ado- a friend or two; For hark you, Tybalt being slain so late, It may be thought we held him carelessly. Being our kinsman, if we revel much. Lord Capulet to Paris 3.4
We will have vengeance for it, fear thou not. Then weep no more. I’ll send to one in Mantua, Where that same banished runagate doth live, Shall give him such an unaccustomed dram That he shall soon keep Tybalt company. And then I hope thou wilt be satisfied 🙂 Lady Capulet to Juliet 3.5
Now by Saint Peter’s Church, and Peter too, He shall not make me there a joyful bride! I wonder at this haste, that I must wed Ere he that should be husband comes to woo. I pray you tell my lord and father, madam, I will not marry yet. Juliet to Lady Capulet 3.5
Hang thee, young baggage! Disobedient wretch! I tell thee what–get thee to church a Thursday, Or never after look me I the face. Speak not, reply not, do not answer me! Lord Capulet to Juliet 3.5
Is there no pity sitting in the clouds That sees into the bottom of my grief? O sweet mother, cast me not away! Delay this marriage for a month, a week; Or if you do not, make the bridal bed In that dim monument where Tybalt lies. Juliet to Lady Capulet 3.5
I think it best you married with the County. O, he’s a lovely gentleman! Romeo’s a dishclout to him…Your first is dead–or ’twere as good he were As living here and you no use of him Nurse to Juliet 3.5
I’ll to the friar to know his remedy. If all else fail, myself have power to die. Juliet to herself 3.5
