Storyboard Text

  • Oh, shut the door, and after you shut it, come over here and weep with me. This mess is beyond hope, beyond cure, beyond help.
  • Oh, Juliet, I already know about your sad situation. It's a problem too hard for me to solve. I hear that you must marry this count on Thursday, and that nothing can delay it.
  • Don't tell me that you've heard about this marriage, Friar unless you can tell me how to prevent it. And I will solve the problem now with this knife. God joined my heart to Romeo's. You joined our hands. And before I- who was married to Romeo by you- am married to another man, I'll kill myself. I want to die if what you say isn't another solution.
  • Hold on, daughter, I see some hope. If you've made up your mind to kill yourself instead of marrying Count Paris, then you'll probably be willing to try something like death to solve this shameful problem. And if you dare do it, I'll give you the solution.
  • Oh, you can tell me yo jump off the battle posts of any tower, or to walk down the crime-ridden streets of a slum. Hide ,me every night in a morgue full of dead bodies with wet, smelly, flesh and skulls without jawbones. All those ideas make me tremble when I hear them named. But I will do them without fear ir dread in order to be pure wife to my sweet love.
  • Tomorrow night make sure that you are alone. When you're in bed, take this vial, mix its contents with liquor, and drink. Then a cold, sleep inducing drug will run through your veins, and your pulse will stop. Your flesh will be cold, and you'll stop breathing. The red in your lips and your cheeks will turn pale, and your eyes will shut. It will seem like you're dead. You won't be able to move, and your body will be stiff like a corpse.You'll remain in this deathlike stage for forty-two hours, and then you'll wake up as if from a pleasant sleep.
  • Love will give me strength, and strength will help me accomplish this plan. Goodbye, dear Father.
  • Give me the vial. Give it to me! Don't talk to me about fear.
  • Now go along on your way. Be strong and successful in this decision. I'll send a friar quickly to Mantua with my letter for Romeo.
