This storyboard does not have a description.
"Tis all one. I will show myself a tyrant. when I have fought with the men, i will be civil with the maids-I will cut off their heads"(Sampson pg.808).
"If ever you disturb our streets again, your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace"(Prince pg.811).
"Tell me in sadness, who is that you love?(Benvolio pg.814).
In the opening scene, Sampson and Gregory are planning on starting a fight with the Montague's. This is important because it demonstrates the seriousness of their feud, early on.
In this scene, the Prince breaks up the fighting between the two families and tells them that if they ever disturb the peace again, they will pay with their lives. This scene shows that the feud affects the whole town, not just the two families.
After the fight, Benvolio finds Romeo and asks him why he is so sad. Romeo tells him he is sad because he is in love with a woman but she isn't looking for love back. This is relevant because this love is what leads him to meet Juliet.
