Storyboard Text

  • "News from Verona!-How now, Balthasar?...How doth my lady? Is my father well? How fares my Juliet?"
  • "Her body sleeps in Capels' monument. And her immortal part with angels lives. I saw her laid low in her kindred's vault and presently took post to tell it you."
  • "Is it e'en so? Then I defy you, stars!"
  • "No matter. Get thee gone.""Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight. Let's see for means."
  • "I do beseech you, sir, have patience."
  • "As I remeber, this should be the house...What, ho! Apothecary!"
  • "Come hither, man. I see that thou art poor. Hold, there is forty ducats. Let me have a dram of poison."
  • "Who calls so loud?"
  • When Romeo asks of news of his Juliet from Balthasar, he learns of "her death" in Verona.
  • "Art thou so bare and full of wretchedness, and fear'st to die? Then be not poor, but break it, and take this."
  • "My poverty, but not my will, consents. Put this in any liquid thing you will and drink it off...it would dispatch you straight."
  • "Such mortal drugs I have, but Mantua's law is death to any he that utters them."
  • Romeo despairs after learning of her "death". He says to himself that he will find a way to lie with her tonight, even dead.
  • Romeo goes and visits a poor Apothecary. When he gets there he offers the man lots of money in exchange for some poison.
  • The Apothecary explains that the only reason he will give him the poison is because he is poor, this is against the law and ends in death. But in the end, Romeo leaves with the poison.
