Tell me not, Friar, that thou hearest of this, unless thou tell me how I may prevent it. Juliet to Friar Lawrence
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 to Friar Lawrence
Hold, daughter, I do spy a kind of hope which craves as desperate an execution as that is desperate which we would prevent Friar Lawrence to Juliet
Thou shalt continue two and forty hours and then awake as from a pleasant sleep Friar Lawrence to Juliet
I’ll send a friar with speed to Mantua with my letters to thy lord Friar Lawrence to Juliet
Send for the Country. Go tell him of this. I’ll have this knot knit up tomorrow morning Capulet to Juliet (Nurse and Lady Capulet are there as well)
Now, afore God, this reverend holy friar all our whole city is much bound to him Capulet to Lady Capulet, Nurse, and Juliet

Come, vial. What if this mixture do not work at all? Shall I be married then tomorrow morning? Juliet to herself
Subtly hath ministered to have me dead, lest in this marriage he should be dishonored because he married me before to Romeo? Juliet to herself

Dry up your tears, and stick your rosemary on this fair course, and, as the custom is, and in her best array, bear her to church Friar Lawrence to Capulet, Nurse, Lady Capulet, Paris
For thou fond nature bids us all lament, yet nature’s tears are reason’s merriment Friar Lawrence to Capulet, Nurse, Lady Capulet, Paris

Is it e’en so?- THen I defy you stars! Romeo to Balthasar
Leave me, and do the thing I bid thee do. Hast thou no letters to me from the Friar? Romeo to Balthasar
Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight. Romeo to himself
O mischief, thou art swift to enter in the thoughts of desperate men. Romeo to himself
Such mortal drugs I have, but Mantua’s law is death to any he that utters them Apothecary to Romeo
Art thou so bare and full of wretchedness, and fearest to die? Famine is in thy cheeks, need and oppression starveth in thy eyes, contempt and beggary hangs upon thy back. Romeo to Apothecary
The world is not thy friend, nor the world’s law Romeo to Apothecary
The world affords no law to make thee rich. Then be not poor, but break it, and take this Romeo to Apothecary
My poverty, but not my will consents Apothecary to Romeo
There is thy gold, worse poison to men’s souls, doing more murder in this loathsome world than these poor compounds that thou mayest not sell Romeo to Apothecary
I sell thee poison; thou hast sold me none. Farewell, buy food, and get thyself in flesh Romeo to Apothecary
I could not send it (here it is again) Nor get a messenger to bring it thee, so fearful were they of infection Friar John to Friar Lawrence
Now I must to the monument alone. Within this three hours will fair Juliet wake…. And keep her at my cell till Romeo come. Poor living, corse, closed in a dead man’s tomb Friar Lawrence to himself
Thou detestable maw, thou womb of death, gorged with the dearest morsel of the earth, thus I enforce thy rotten jaws to open, and in despite I’ll cram thee with more food Romeo to Paris as they’re fighting
Can vengeance be pursued further than death? Paris to Romeo
I must indeed, and therefore I came hither. Good gentle youth, tempt not a desp’rate man Romeo to Paris
O, I am slain! If thou be merciful, open thy tomb; lay me with Juliet Paris to Romeo
Death that hath sucked thy honey of thy breath, hath had no power yet upon thy beauty Romeo to ‘dead Juliet’
And shake the yoke of inauspicious stars from this world-wearied flesh Romeo to ‘dead Juliet’
O, true apothecary, thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die Romeo to ‘dead Juliet’
Lady, come from that nest of death, contagion, and unnatural sleep. Friar Lawrence to Juliet
A greater power that we can contradict hath thwarted out intents. Friar Lawrence to Juliet
Yea, noise? Then I’ll be brief. O, happy dagger, this is my sheath. There rust and let me die Juliet to herself
Alas, my liege, my wife is dead tonight. Grief of my sons exile hath stopped her breath. What further woe aspires against mine age? Montague to Prince and Capulets
I am the greatest, able to do least, yet most suspected, as the time and place doth make against me, of this direful murder Friar Lawrence to Prince +Familes
And here I stand, both to impeach and purge myself condemned and myself excused Friar Lawrence to Prince +Familes
And bear this work of heaver with patience. But then a noise did scare me from the tomb, and she, too desperate, would not go with me but, as it seems, did violence on herself Friar Lawrence to Prince +Familes
Wes till have known thee for a holy man Prince to Friar Lawrence
Where be these enemies?- Capulet, Montague, see what a scourge is laid upon your hate Prince to Capulet and Montague
That heaven finds means to kill your joys with love, and I, for winking at your discords too, have lost a brace of kinsmen. All are punished. Prince to Capulet and Montague
As rich shall Romeo’s by his lady’s die, poor sacrifices of our enmity Capulet to Prince and Montague
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. Prince/Chorus to Families
Some shall be pardoned, and some punished. For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo. Prince/Chorus to Families
Well, he may chance to do some good on her. A peevish [self willed] harlotry it is. Capulet to Nurse
My heart is wondrous light since this same girl is so reclaimed. Capulet to Lady Capulet
I pray thee to leave me to myself tonight, for i have need of many orisons to move the heavens to smile upon my state,which, well thou knowest, is cross and full of sin. Juliet to Nurse
So please you, let me now be left alone, and let the Nurse this night sit up with you, Juliet to Lady Capulet
Why lamb, why Lady! Fie, you slugabed! Why, love, I say! Madam! Sweetheart! Why, bride! Nurse to self/’dead Juliet
