Benvolio and Mercutio discuss Tybalts challenge to Romeo and he shows that he respects those who have skill.
Is he man enough at this point to face off with Tybalt?
Oh, he’s the courageous captain of compliments. He fights as you sing prick-song, keeps time, distance, and proportion.The very butcher of a silk button, a duelist, a duelist,
Why, what’s Tybalt’s story?
Mercutio calls Romeo out for leaving his friends last night, Romeo provides explanation. Mercutio is implying Remeo's business was sexual. This is comic relief and shows he is playful
Excuse me, good Mercutio. I had very important business to take care of. It was so important that I had to forget about courtesy and good manners.
That’s as much as to say, such a case as yours constrains a man to bow in the hams.
I pray you, sir, what saucy merchant was this that was so full of his ropery?
Here, The nurse is offended by Mercutios jokes. This shows that she is a sensitive person
A gentleman, Nurse, that loves to hear himself talk
Nurse warns Romeo of hurting Juliet since she is very you. This shows that she is caring and protective. Tone is used here because the nurse sounds like she is scolding Romeo for being with Juliet.
But first let me tell ye, if ye should lead her into a fool’s paradise, as they say, it were a very gross kind of behavior, as they say. For the gentlewoman is young, and therefore, if you should deal double with her, truly it were an ill thing to be offered to any gentlewoman, and very weak dealing.
Here, Romeo tells the nurse to propose his plan for them to get married at Friar Lawrence's and gives her money, although she declines it the first time. This shows that the nurse is courteous and has manners
Bid her devise. Some means to come to shrift this afternoon. And there she shall at Friar Lawrence' cell, be shrived and married. (gives her coins)
