Storyboard Text

  • (4.5.8-9)
  • "Marry, and amen. How sound is she asleep! I must wake her.—Madam, madam, madam!"
  • (4.1.45-46)
  • "O, shut the door! And when thou hast done so, Come weep with me, past hope, past cure, past help."
  • (4.5.38-40)
  • "Death is my son-in-law. Death is my heir. My daughter he hath wedded. I will die, And leave him all. Life, living, all is Death's"
  • This quote is from Nurse. She is trying to wake Juliet after Lord Capulet ordered her to get Juliet ready for the wedding that is happening today. She frantically tries to wake Juliet up but slowely realizes that she is dead and calls for help before Lady Capulet comes rushing in. They both find that she is 'dead' and start weeping and calling for Lord Capulet.
  • (4.1.80-84)
  • "...or bid me lurk Where serpents are; chain me with roaring bears; Or shut me nightly in a charnel house, O'ercovered quite with dead men's rattling bones, With reeky shanks and yellow chapless skulls;"
  • This quote is very important to this scene because of Juliet's tone. This is when she is visiting Friar and Paris finally leaves them alone. When he leaves, Juliet breaks down in tears and asks the Friar for assurance. She is very confused about what to do about marrying Paris when she wants to stay loyal to Romeo. Her tone describes her feelings of confusion and sadness.
  • (4.5.59-61)
  • "Despised, distressed, hated, martyred, killed! Uncomfortable time, why camest thou now To murder, murder our solemnity?"
  • This quote is said by Lord Capulet when he has to inform Paris that Juliet has died. He says that death married his daughter and ultimately becomes his son-in-law. He is implying that Death is a human who can marry and has human characteristics. He also says that he is going to die and when he does, Death can have his life, wealth, and everything else of his.
  • (4.5.100-101)
  • "Musicians, O musicians, "Heart's Ease,""Heart's Ease." O, and you will have me live, play "Heart's Ease.""
  • In this quote, Juliet is explaining how terrified she is about taking a risk (drinking the vile Friar gave to her) and thinking about all the possibilities (if she will wake up or not, etc.) and how scared she is of what's inside that tomb. She explains that she will do all these terrifying things for Romeo and so she doesn't have to marry Paris and can stay a faithful wife.
  • I blame Lord Capulet for everything in this Act from what's going wrong and what's going right. He first threatens Juliet if she doesn't marry Paris and doesn't even take her feelings into consideration one bit. He also forces her to do this even though he can see that she doesn't want to. In the quote above, he talks about missing the wedding rather his own daughter.
  • This is an example of comic relief. The servants usually do this when something wrong has happened, which in this case is Juliet's death. They want to ease the situation by playing different music but the musicians disagree. They are not paying attention to the calamity of the Capulet house but rather what music to play in this "woeful time" as Nurse had put it.
