Storyboard Text

  • O, I am fortune's fool!
  • It's just a nightingale!
  • If you don't marry Paris, you can hang, beg, starve, and die in the streets!
  • Internal Conflict (Man vs. Self) Romeo cries out that he is "fortune's fool" as he struggles with what to do after killing Tybalt, as if fate is making a fool out of him.
  • "O, I am fortune's fool!" (Act 3 scene 1, line 34)
  • External Conflict (Man vs. Nature) Juliet very much wants the night to last because she is with Romeo on the eve of his banishment form Verona. After killing Tybalt, Romeo must leave or risk apprehension by the prince or possible death. When Romeo gets up to leave, Juliet implores him to stay, claiming it is just the nightingale that they hear. However fate conspires against Romeo and Juliet and now nature hinders the couple from being together when Juliet finally realizes it is actually a lark, "the herald of the morn," and urges Romeo to leave.
  • "Wilt thou be gone? It is not yet near day. It was the nightingale, and not the lark, That pierc'd thine ear; Nightly she sings on bond pomegranate-tree. Believe me, love, it was the nightingale." (Act 3 scene 5, lines 1-5)
  • ''and then to have a wretched, whining fool, a crying doll, who when offered a good fortune, says, ''I can't love him. I'm too young. I beg you to excuse me.'' If you don't marry, I'll ''excuse'' you to find another home.'' (Act 3, scene 5, lines 193-197)
  • External Conflict (Man vs. Man) After being told that his daughter doesn't want to marry Paris, Capulet began screaming and insulting his daughter, threatening to disown her and throw her out into the streets.
