Act 3: Scene 3
Friar Lawrence & Romeo
"'O, tell me, friar, tell me, / In what vile part of this anatomy / Doth my name lodge? tell me, that I may sack / The hateful mansion."' (Shakespeare 3.3.105-08)
"'Hold thy desperate hand: / Art thou a man? thy form cries out thou art: / Thy tears are womanish; thy wild acts denote'" (Shakespeare 3.3.108-10)
In this scene, Romeo is so sad and heartbroken that he asks Friar Lawrence where his name is embedded in his body metaphorically so that he can cut it out. Saying that, he draws out his dagger and is about to stab himself, when the Nurse snatches the dagger out of his hands. Then, Friar Lawrence tells Romeo to hold on and not act out of desperation, and that Romeo looks like a man, but his tears make him look like a woman, and lastly, that his wild actions resemble the fury of an irrational beast. Friar Lawrence is the voice of maturity against the immature weeping of Romeo.
Act 1: Scene 1
Benvolio & Tybalt
"'I do but keep the peace: put up thy sword, / Or manage it to part these men with me.'" (Shakespeare 1.1.64-65)
"'What, drawn, and talk of peace! I hate the word,'" (Shakespeare 1.1.66)
In this scene, Benvolio is trying to beat down the citizens' clubs and swords with his own sword. Benvolio being a practical and peace-loving gentleman while trying to settle the conflict between the citizens. Opposingly, Tybalt, being the arrogant and impetuous person he is, barges in and says he wants to fight Benvolio and says that he hates the talk of peace. Benvolio doesn't want to fight Tybalt, but he has to draw his sword to defend himself.
