Juliet “Poison I see has been his timeless end. Drunk all and left no friendly drop to help me after?”
Friar Lawrence “Lady, come from the nest of death, contagion, and unnatural sleep.”
Prince Escalus “All are punished”
Friar Lawrence “Take thou this vial, being then in bed,/And this distillèd liquor drink thou off,/When presently through all thy veins shall run/A cold and drowsy humor, for no pulse/Shall keep his native progress, but surcease.”
Capulet “How now, my headstrong? Where have you been gadding?”
Juliet “Where I have learned me to repent the sin”/Of disobedient opposition”
Juliet “What if it be a poison, which the friarSubtly hath ministered to have me dead,Lest in this marriage he should be dishonoredBecause he married me before to Romeo?”
Juliet “Romeo, Romeo, Romeo! Here’s drink. I drink to thee.”
Capulet “Her blood is settled, and her joints are stiff. Life and these lips have long been separated.Death lies on her like an untimely frostUpon the sweetest flower of all the field.”
