NURSE I must needs wake you. Lady, lady, lady!— Alas, alas! Help, help! My lady’s dead!— Oh, welladay, that ever I was born!— Some aqua vitae, ho!—My lord! My lady!
Aqua Vitae - A strong alcoholic liquid such as brandy
Penury - Extreme poverty; destitution
ROMEO Noting this penury, to myself I said, “An if a man did need a poison now”— Whose sale is present death in Mantua— “Here lives a caitiff wretch would sell it him.”
JULIET Oh, if I wake, shall I not be distraught, Environèd with all these hideous fears, And madly play with my forefather’s joints, And pluck the mangled Tybalt from his shroud, And, in this rage, with some great kinsman’s bone, As with a club, dash out my desperate brains?
Environèd - Surround; Enclose
Unsavory - Disagreeable to taste, smell, or look at.
ROMEO Come, bitter poison, come, unsavory guide! You desperate pilot, let’s crash this seaweary ship into the rocks! Here’s to my love!
