Tell me, how did you get in here? And why did you come? The orchard walls are high, and it’s hard to climb over them. If any of my relatives find you here they’ll kill you because of who you are.
Romeo reveals to Juliet that he is there.
(to JULIET) I trust your words. Just call me your love, and I will take a new name. From now on I will never be Romeo again.
Romeo tells Juliet he was able to enter the orchid without being seen because of his love for her
I flew over these walls with the light wings of love. Stone walls can’t keep love out. Whatever a man in love can possibly do, his love will make him try to do it. Therefore your relatives are no obstacle.
My relatives will kill you if you are seen.
You can’t seemy face because it’s dark out. Otherwise, you’d see me blushing about the things you’ve heard me say tonight. I would be happy to keep up good manners and deny the things I said. But forget about good manners. Do you love me? I know you’ll say “yes,” and I’ll believe you. But if you swear you love me, you might turn out to be lying.
Juliet states that she is blushing because of the affection Romeo showed her. Juliet is worried that Romeo doesn't love her but Romeo promises by the moon he loves her.
Lady, I swear by the sacred moon above, the moon that paints the tops of fruit trees with silver—
Don’t swear by the moon. The moon is always changing. Every month its position in the sky shifts. I don’t want you to turn out to be that inconsistent too.
Juliet doesn't want Romeo swearing by the moon since the moon is inconsistent and she doesn't want Romeo to turn out inconsistent .
What should I swear by?
Don’t swear at all. But if you have to swear, swear by your wonderful self, which is the god I worship like an idol, and then I’ll believe you.
Juliet doesn't want Romeo swearing by anything but if he has to swear, he has to swear by his wonderful self and then Juliet will believe him
Don't swear by the moon- I hear a noise inside. Dear love, goodbye—Just a minute, good Nurse. Sweet Montague, be true. Stay here for a moment. I’ll come back.
Juliet hears a noise from her nurse inside ,Romeo thinks this is too sweet to be real.
(while Juliet is gone) Oh, blessed, blessed night! Because it’s dark out, I’m afraid all this is just a dream, too sweet to be real.
