Storyboard Text

  • Benvolio: I pray thee, good Mercutio, let’s retire. The day is hot, the Capulets abroad, And if we meet, we shall not scape a brawl, For now, these hot days, is the mad blood stirring.
  • Tybalt: Mercutio, thou consortest with Romeo.
  • Mercutio: Consort? What, dost thou make us minstrels? An thou make minstrels of us, look to hear nothing but discords. Here’s my fiddlestick; here’s that shall make you dance. Zounds, consort!
  • Tybalt: Romeo, the love I bear thee can afford. No better term than this: thou art a villain
  • Romeo: Tybalt, the reason that I have to love thee Doth much excuse the appertaining rage. To such a greeting. Villain am I none. Therefore farewell. I see thou knowst me not.
  • Benvolio and Mercutio are hanging out as usual, talking about the Capulets.
  • 1) Mercutio: Good King of Cats, nothing but one of your nine lives. That I mean to make bold withal, and, as you shall use me hereafter, dry-beat the rest of the eight. Will you pluck your sword out of his pilcher by the ears? Make haste, lest mine be about your ears ere it be out.
  • 2) Mercutio: I am hurt. A plague o’ both your houses! I am sped. Is he gone and hath nothing?
  • Tybalt enters looking for Romeo to get back at him for crashing the Capulet party. Tybalt insults Mercutio which causes Mercurio to challenge him.
  • Romeo: This gentleman, the Prince’s near ally, My very friend, hath got this mortal hurt. In my behalf—my reputation stained. With Tybalt’s slander—Tybalt, that an hour. Hath been my kinsman, O sweet Juliet, Thy beauty hath made me effeminate. And in my temper softened valor’s steel!
  • Tybalt: Thou, wretched boy, that didst consort him here, Shalt with him hence.
  • Romeo enters disrupting their fight/argument. Tybalt starts trying to pick a fight with Romeo whilst Romeo stays calm because he doesn't want to hurt his new "family".
  • Prince: And for that offense. Immediately we do exile him hence. I have an interest in your hate’s proceeding, My blood for your rude brawls doth lie a-bleeding; But I’ll amerce you with so strong a fine. That you shall all repent the loss of mine. I will be deaf to pleading and excuses; Nor tears nor prayers shall purchase out abuses. Therefore use none. Let Romeo hence in haste, Else, when he is found, that hour is his last. Bear hence this body, and attend our will. Mercy but murders, pardoning those that kill.
  • Lady Capulet: Tybalt, my cousin! O my brother’s child! O Prince! O cousin! O husband! O, the blood is spilled. Of my dear kinsman! Prince, as thou art true, For blood of ours shed blood of Montague. O cousin, cousin!
  • Romeo still refuses to fight with Tybalt. So, Mercurio interferes and starts to fight Tybalt. Whilst being held back by Romeo, Mercurio gets stabbed and curses both the Montagues and the Capulets.
  • Romeo wants to avenge his friend, Mercurio's, death, so, he starts fighting with Tybalt until Tybalt gets stabbed by Romeo and dies.
  • Lady Capulet and Prince enter. Lady Capulet starts blaming Romeo for her cousin, Tybalt's, death, saying that Romeo should be sentenced to death for killing a Capulet. The Prince banishes Romeo from Verona.
