Death Romeo can’t believe he has been banished from Verona. What would Romeo rather have as a punishment?
It is like “slaying ten thousand Tybalts. It is father, mother, Juliet, Romeo, Tybalt, All slain. All dead.” It is like killing her entire family or having Tybalt dead 10,000 times. Banishment is much worse than death. What is Romeo’s banishment like for Juliet?
Go to Juliet one more time, but leave before morning. He will try to get things smoothed over and send a messenger to tell Romeo what has gone on and when/if he can return to Verona. What does the Friar tell Romeo to do after the banishment is revealed?

You might as well marry Paris. He is a good-looking, well- to-do man and Romeo is banished and there is not much they can do about it. So, marry Paris. What solution does the nurse have for Juliet at the end of Act III?
