Storyboard Text

  • I wouldn't do this out in the open, Mercutio.
  • Tybalt is salty because Romeo, who is a Montague, crashed Lord Capulets' party.  This is shown with the quote, "Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries That thou hast done me.  This quote demonstrates that Tybalt is vindictive.
  • What are we; his musicians?  Take me on instead you saucy boy.
  • Where's your friend Romeo?  I want to fight him.
  • Right now, dramatic irony is being demonstrated.  Romeo says, "I love thee better than thou canst devise,"  referring to the fact that he is married to Juliet and that Tybalt is now related to him.  We know this, but Tybalt does not.
  • How dishonorable!  I challenge you to a duel, then.
  • I won't fight you; I love you like a brother.
  • There's Romeo!  Fight me now!
  • This scene shows Romeo's peaceful side.  He shows no hostility towards the Capulets and is opposed to the fight between Mercutio and Tybalt.  He actively tries to stop it and even says, "Draw, Benvolio, beat down their weapons."  However, Romeo's interference results in Mercutio being mortally wounded by Tybalt.
  • Don't fight out in the streets, guys!
  • Mercutio dies after making a few jokes, and Romeo feels upset that his love for Juliet made him soft.  He decides to avenge Mercutio's death by fighting Tybalt to the death, demonstrated by the enraged Romeo saying, "Staying for thine to keep him company, either thou or I, or both, must go with him.  This quote shows Romeos impulsive side.
  • This is all my fault!
  • Romeo challenges Tybalt to a duel. Tybalt, who is short-tempered, accepts the challenge by saying, "Thou wretched boy that didst consort him here shalt with him hence."   However, it's Tybalt who gets shanked.
  • Methinks you need to die!
  • You're going to join Mercutio in heaven!
  • When Mercutio explains what happened to the others he uses a simile.  He says "And to t' they like lightning," comparing Romeo and Tybalts fight to fierce and quick lightning.
  • According to Mercutio, Tybalt started it!
  • I will not have Romeo killed, but he is banished from Verona.
  • No!  Mercutio is a biased source - Romeo is completely guilty.
