We talk here in the public haunt of men. Here all eyes gaze on us.
I will not marry yet; and when I do, I swear, it shall be Romeo.
Here comes your father; tell him so yourself, and see how he will take it at your hands.
Tell me not, friar, that thou hear'st of this, unless thou tell me how I may prevent it.
To-morrow night look that thou lie alone; Let not the Nurse lie with thee in thy chamber. Take thou this vial, and this distilled liquor drink thou off.
Earlier, Tybalt sent a letter to Romeo, challenging him to a duel. Mercutio faces Tybalt to defend his friend, and Romeo appears, attempting to break up the fight between them. Benvolio runs up to them, worried that the citizens and/or Prince Escalus will show up and notice the fight.
This day's black fate on more days both depend. This but begins the woe others must end.
O Romeo, Romeo, brave Mercutio's dead!
Lady Capulet lets Juliet know that she will be marrying Count Paris, her arranged lover, on Thursday. Juliet, angered, says that she'll only marry Romeo, since her love for him is so strong. Lord Capulet approaches Juliet as she says that.
Good father, I beseech you on my knees, hear me with patience but to speak a word.
Hang thee, young baggage! Disobedient wretch! Get thee to church o' Thursday, Or never after look me in the face.
Juliet goes to Friar Lawrence, for guidance on how to get out of marrying Paris since she is already married to Romeo. He tells her to drink a special distilled liquor that will put her to sleep long enough for her family to think that she is dead. This shows how devoted Juliet is to Romeo and how she would do anything for him, even if it meant faking her death.
What if it be a poison, which the friar subtly hath minist'red to have me dead.
Tybalt stabs Mercutio under Romeo's arm, killing him. This is the turning point of the play since it causes most of the characters personalities, and the mood, to change from happy and meek to depressing and sorrowful.
Lord Capulet overhears Juliet's complaints and threatens to disown her if she does not marry Paris. This shows that Lord Capulet is trying to manipulate the two into getting married for his own benefit and so his own reputation could be held up.
Juliet contemplates if she should drink the distilled liquor or not. She is worried that it either won't work or it will kill her. This is a major example of internal conflict in the play. After she drinks the liquor, it does work, and there was no reason to worry at all, or so the audience thinks.
Shall I be married to-morrow morning? No, no; this shall forbid it. Romeo, I come! This do I drink to thee.
