Act 2 Scene 2

  • "O Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name! Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I'll no longer be a Capulet."
  • Juliet is thinking to herself, wondering how she could've possibly fallen in love with a Montague, her family's sworn enemy for ages. She is also saying that she will no longer be a Capulet if that is what it takes to be with Romeo.

Act 3 scene 3

"Hath slain ten thousand Tybalts. Tybalt’s death Was woe enough, if it had ended there.Or,if sour woe delights in fellowship And needly will be ranked with other griefs,Why followed not, when she said “Tybalt’s dead,”“Thy father” or “thy mother,” nay, or both,Which modern

lamentations might have moved? But with a rearward following Tybalt’s death,“Romeo is banishèd.” To speak that word,Is father, mother, Tybalt, Romeo, Juliet,All slain, all dead. “Romeo is banished.”There is no end, no limit, measure, bound,In that word’s death. No words can that woe sound."


Juliet is expressing how heartbroken she is because Romeo has been banished and Tybalt is also dead , though she is more hurt that Romeo has been banished from Verona into Mantua.

" O shut the door! And when thou hast done so, come weep with me- past hope. past cure , past help!"

Juliet has come to the Friar, desperate for help from him. She doesn't want to marry Paris after she has just married Romeo.
