So Much YOLO
During scene two paris, who is introduced as a static antagonist seeking Juliet’s love, asks capulet for permission to marry juliet. The ecstatic father would love for this to happen, but fears that juliet is not ready to be a bride and asks paris to woo her gently and offers paris an invitation to a party happening that night in order to begin their relationship. He then calls for one of his servingmen, an illiterate fellow named peter, to give out invitations to the other guests. The poor man wanders about looking for a person to read the list for him and comes across Romeo and Benvolio. In return for reading the list he offers the cousins an invitation to capulets party. After a little teasing the twins comply. Seeing this as a chance to clear Romeo’s head of rosaline, benvolio convinces his cousin to attend.
Lady Capulet is with the nurse, looking for her daughter Juliet. Juliet walks in and Lady Capulet tells the nurse to leave but changes her mind telling her to stay. The nurse talks to Juliet in sexual innuendos. Juliet tells the nurse to shut up because she is getting embarrassed. Lady Capulet then asks Juliet her thoughts on marriage to learn that Juliet hasn’t given it any thought yet. Lady Capulet tells Juliet that she should marry Paris and have a child because Lady Capulet gave birth to Juliet at the same age that Juliet currently is. Juliet says she will look at Paris to see if she loves him or not.
Romeo, Benvolio and Mercutio went to Capulet's feast wearing masks. Mercutio turns all of Romeo’s statements about love into Sxual jokes. Mercutio talks about some fairy who visits people’s dreams. Romeo says that dreams are “the children of the Idle brain”. Romeo voices one last concern: he has a feeling that the night’s activities will set in motion the action of fate, resulting in untimely death. Romeo’s spirits rise and they continue to the feast.
