Storyboard Text

  • Character Flaw
  • "Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight! For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night" (1.5.50-51).
  • Pride
  • On the fair daughter of rich Capulet; As mine on hers, so hers is set on mine, and all combined, save what thou must combine by holy marriage. (2.4.59-61).
  • "Holy Saint Francis! What a change is here! Is Rosaline, that thou didst love so dear, so soon forsaken? (2.4.65-68).
  • Reversal of Fortune 
  • "That late thou gavest me, for Mercutio's soul is little way above our heads, staying for thine to keep him company. Either thou or I, or both, must go with him" (3.1.119-122).
  • "This shall determine that" (3.1.1124).
  • "Thou, wretched boy, that didst consort him here, Shalt with him hence" (3.1.123-124). 
  • Romeo doesn't think before he acts, he's always focused on his emotions and what he wants, not whats smart.  He never knows what he wants, for example he "loved" Rosaline and the night he sees Juliet all of a sudden he loves her and has never seen true beauty. 
  • Moment of Critical Discovery 
  • "Her body sleeps in Capels' monument, and her immortal part with angels lives" (5.1.18-19).
  • A huge act of pride in this play is when Romeo snuck into the Capulets and climbed up a tree to talk to Juliet in the middle of the night. They both confessed their love for each other and insisted on getting married as soon as they could because they were so in love. Romeo had gone to Friar Laurences and forced him to marry the two. 
  • Fate Worse than he Deserves 
  • An evil event that changes Romeos life from good to chaotic is when Tybalt and him get into a fight. That caused Mercutio to join to protect Romeo and Tybalt ended up killing Mercutio. Out of anger Romeo then kills Tybalt and for his punishment he is vanished from Verona and has to move to Mantua. That definitely has to be an event that made his life chaotic because he was taken away from his love and his family. 
  • Pity for Tragic Hero 
  • Capulets 
  • "As rich shall Romeo's by his lady lie-Poor sacrifices of our enmity!" (5.3.303-304).
  • Tybalt then falls because Romeo stabbed him
  • Montague
  • When Belthesar tells Romeo that Juliet has died he realized all the bad actions and everything has done led up to Juliet's death which devastated him. 
  • "Then I defy you, stars! Thou knowst my lodging. Get me ink and paper and hire posthorses. I will hence tonight (5.1.24-26).
  • "The dashing rocks thy seasick weary bark! Here's to my love! (drinks poison)  O true apothecary! Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss i die. (falls)" (5.3.118-120).
  • This is when Romeo goes to wear Juliet lies "dead" and kills himself so that he can be with her. Right after he does Juliet wakes up and sees Romeo dead right next to her. She then kills herself so she can be with him when originally he did it to be with her.
  • "Yea, noise? Then I'll be brief. O happy dagger! (takes Romeos dagger) This is thy sheath; there is rust, and let me die. (stabs herself and falls)" (5.3.168-171).
  • " I do remember well where I should be, and there i am. Where is my Romeo?"(5.3.149-150).
  • Pity occurred for Romeo, Juliet as well, when their families ended their ancient grudge due to the loss of both of their children. 
  • "For I will raise her statue in pure gold, that whiles Verona by that name is known, there shall no figure at such rate be set as that of true and faithful Juliet" (5.3.298-302).
