I'm just trying to keep the peace. Put away your sword. or use it to help me seperate these men.
What! Talking about peace with your sword drawn? I hate the word peace as I hate hell, and all the Montagues,and you! come on, coward
What are you fighting with mere servants these timid deer? Turn around ,Benvolio. your death faces
Three or four Citizens join the fight
Down with capulets! Down with Montagues
Clubs, axes, spears! Stop,Put them down
Old Capulet and Lady Capulet enter
What's all the noise! Give me my long sword, you there
My sword, I said. Old Montague is coming. He is waving his sword to anger me.
A crutch, you mean! A crutch! Why are you asking for a sword
Old Montague and Lady Montague enter
You shall not make one single step toward the enemy.
You villain, Capulet! Don't try to stop me! Let me go!
you rebels! Enemies of peace! you stain your swords with your neighbors blood
The fighting continues
Verona's oldest citizens have put aside their dignified manner and taken up old rusted weapons, in hands just as old and rusty with peace , to break up your cancerous fight. If you ever disturb the peace of the town again, you will pay with your lives. For now let the crowd break up.
Can't you hear? Hey, you men there! You beasts put out the fire of your anger with the blood from your veins.On pain of torture, drop those weapons from your bloody hands. now listen to the judgement of the prince. Three fights have occured because of a few words from you, old Capulet, and from you, Montague, disturbing our quiet streets.
You, Capulet, will go with me and you,Montague will come to see me this afternoon at our court at old Freetown, to learn whst else i have decide in this matter. Once again-on pain of death-everyone disperse!
