PARIS:Give me thy torch, boy. Hence, and stand aloof.Yet put it out, for I would not be seen.
ACT 5 SCENE 3
Under yon yew trees lay thee all along,Holding thine ear close to the hollow ground—So shall no foot upon the churchyard tread,Being loose, unfirm, with digging up of graves,But thou shalt hear it. Whistle then to me,As signal that thou hear’st something approach.Give me those flowers. Do as I bid thee, go.
[Aside] I am almost afraid to stand alone Here in the churchyard. Yet I will adventure.
[The page whistles ]
Scatters flowers around JULIET’S closed tomb] Sweet flower, with flowers thy bridal bed I strew—O woe! Thy canopy is dust and stones—Which with sweet water nightly I will dew.Or, wanting that, with tears distilled by moans,The obsequies that I for thee will keepNightly shall be to strew thy grave and weep.
Paris comes to the graveyard to mourn Juliet's death while his page waits outside.
Upon thy life I charge thee, Whate’er thou hear’st or seest, stand all aloof,And do not interrupt me in my course.
Romeo enters the cemetery to commit suicide, die and be in heaven with Juliet. Paris sees Romeo and recognizes him as the man who killed Juliet's cousin which supposedly caused her death. He assumes Romeo is going to "do some villainous shame to the dead bodies" and attempts to be the hero and stop him.
"Oh no! Who's blood is this? Romeo is in the grave dead! So is Paris! Oh, what dreadful hour!"
"Go away. I will not leave!"
There rust and let me die.[Stabs herself with ROMEO’s dagger and dies]
Romeo lies dead in the grave and Paris too. Come quickly and you can be a nun.
Romeo is blind with anger and grief so they fight and Romeo kills Paris.
O me! This sight of death is as a bell,That warns my old age to a sepulcher.
Search, seek, and know how this foul murder comes.
This is the place. There, where that torch is burning.
Romeo lays Paris in Juliet's Tomb. He climbs in himself and drinks the poison. So now Romeo, Tybalt, Paris and Juliet lie in the tomb.
Juliet wakes and Friar Lawrence attempts to convince Juliet to escape with him. Juliet refuses.
Friar Lawrence enters, come to retrieve Juliet and hide her in his cell.
[Takes letter from BALTHASAR] Where is the county’s page, that raised the watch?—Sirrah, what made your master in this place?
