Ay me! Sad hours seem long... That love which thou has shown me doth add more grief to too much of mine own.
Now, Tybalt, take the villain back again, the late thou gavest me; for Mercutio's soul is but a little way above our heads staying for thine to keep him company, either thou, or I, or both, must go with him
Give me some present counsel, or behold, 'twixt my extremes and me this bloody knife... O, bid me leap, rather than marry Paris.
Hold, then; go home, be merry, give consent to marry Paris... Take though this vial, being then in bed, and this distilled liquor drink though off; when presently through all thy veins shall run a cold and drowsy humour.
Romeo has an internal conflict where he struggles with his depression caused by being rejected by Rosaline. He explains his feelings to Benvolio, who tries to cheer up his mood.
I'll be a candle-holder and look on.
Nay, gentle Romeo, we must have you dance.
A major external conflict which occurrs in the play is Romeo's banishment. It happens when Mercutio is killed while taking the place of Romeo in his brawl with Tybalt. Romeo, out of rage, kills Tybalt in return.
And for that offence Immediately we do exile him!
Another internal conflict occurs in the play when Juliet has trouble deciding whether or not to drink the vial given to her by Friar Lawrence as a part of a plan for her to avoid marrying Paris so she may be with Romeo.
What if it be a poison, which the friarSubtly hath minister'd to have me dead,Lest in this marriage he should be dishonour'd,Because he married me before to Romeo?I fear it is: and yet, methinks, it should not,For he hath still been tried a holy man.How if, when I am laid into the tomb,I wake before the time that RomeoCome to redeem me? there's a fearful point!Shall I not, then, be stifled in the vault,To whose foul mouth no healthsome air breathes in,And there die strangled ere my Romeo comes?
Later, Mercutio joins their conversation and recommends the idea of having Romeo go to a party at the Capulet household. Romeo, however, is still too sad to go, but does anyway. This is also how he meets Juliet, affecting the entire plot of the story.
Once Prince Escalus sees the scene, he banishes Romeo from Verona, where his love Juliet lives. This causes a conflict which prevents the ability for Romeo and Juliet to be together, which negatively affects the plot.
She considers the worst, such as if the liquor is actually poison which would kill her. She then considers how, if Romeo comes too late, she may suffocate or go mad in the vault. She also thinks about how the liquor may not even work, forcing her to marry Paris and kill herself. All these thoughts cause her to make herself an obstacle to being with Romeo again.
