But wait, what’s that light in the window over there? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Rise up, beautiful sun, and kill the jealous moon. The moon is already sick and pale with grief because you... Oh, it is my love. Oh, I wish she knew how much I love her.
Oh, Romeo, Romeo, why do you have to be Romeo? Forget about your father and change your name. Or else, if you won’t change your name, just swear you love me and I’ll stop being a Capulet.
I trust your words. Just call me your love, and I will take a new name. From now on I will never be Romeo again.
Juliet was feeling overwhelmed so decided to go out onto the balcony outside of her room.
Tell me, how did you get in here? And why did you come? The orchard walls are high, and it’s hard to climb over them. If any of my relatives find you here they’ll kill you because of who you are.
Romeo enters the Capulet Orchard outside the castle. He sees Juliet look out her bedroom window.
I flew over these walls with the light wings of love. Stone walls can’t keep love out. Whatever a man in love can possibly do, his love will make him try to do it. Therefore your relatives are no obstacle.
Romeo and Juliet just learned at the ball they belong to their enemy’s family. Their family had separated them. Juliet speaks aloud, not releasing Romeo can hear her.
You can’t see my face because it’s dark out. Otherwise, you’d see me blushing about the things you’ve heard me say tonight. I would be happy to keep up good manners and deny the things I said.
But forget about good manners. Do you love me? I know you’ll say “yes,” and I’ll believe you. But if you swear you love me, you might turn out to be lying.
Romeo reveals to Juliet that he is there.
Romeo explains to Juliet the love he has for her.
Juliet is embarrassed that Romeo heard her talk about him. She wants him to pledge his love for her.
