Proof of being dangerous:

"'Tis all one. I will show myself a tyrant. When I have fought with the men, I will be civil with the maids. I will cut off their heads." This shows how Sampson is dangerous and is willing to do anything criminal related to the Montegues. "Aye, the heads of the maids, or the maidenheads. Take it in the sense thou wilt." This shows how Sampson suggests that after they kill the Montague men, they rape the women.

Important Information:

Sampson HATES the Montegues. He's willing to do anything to eliminate them. "No, sir. I do not bite my thumb at you, sir, but I bite my thumb, sir." This proves how Sampson tries to be slick and a troublemaker. "A dog of that house shall move to stand, I will take the wall of any man- or maid of Montegues." This shows how he's tough and isn't affraid of anything. "Aye, the heads of the maids, or their maidenheads. Take it in what sense thou wilt." With this imformation, one can tell how Sampson is carless. It seems as if he has no care in the world.

Why He's Important:

Sampson is important in this story. He's a servant in the Capulet's house and enjoys his time there. As well as his masters, he despises the Montegues also. He's a really good friend of his master, Tybolt. He's a troublemaker, and everyone knows it. He provokes a fight with some of the Montague men.
