Storyboard Text

  • Okay this is what we're going to do.
  • Go home, be merry. Give consentTo marry Paris.
  • Mom, Dad I will take Paris as my husbend.
  • ahhhhhh!!
  • I knew you would come around.
  • Wednesday is tomorrow.Tomorrow night look that thou lie alone.Let not the Nurse lie with thee in thy chamber.
  • Nurse may a sleep alone tonight?
  • Okay goodnight.
  • When you’re in bed, take this vial, mix its contents with liquor, and drink. Then a cold, sleep-inducing drug will run through your veins, and your pulse will stop. Your flesh will be cold, and you’ll stop breathing. The red in your lips and your cheeks will turn pale, and your eyes will shut. It will seem like you’re dead, but you will wake in 2 days
  • Now, when the bridegroom in the morning comesTo rouse thee from thy bed, there art thou dead.Then, as the manner of our country is,In thy best robes uncovered on the bierThou shalt be borne to that same ancient vaultWhere all the kindred of the Capulets lie.
  • In the meantime, against thou shalt awake,Shall Romeo by my letters know our drift,And hither shall he come, and he and IWill watch thy waking, and that very nightShall Romeo bear thee hence to Mantua.
  • Go now be free.
