  • ACT 3
  • Take thou this vial, being then in bed, And this distillèd liquor drink thou off...
  • First in the act, a street fight breaks out, seemingly out of nowhere. The fighting rivals make something out of virtually nothing in a sense of a blind rivalry in a haste that seems ridiculous. Second in the act, Benvolio and blindly convinces Romeo to attend Capulet's party. This leads to the tragic event of Romeo and Juliet first meeting and sparks the fire that led to the overwhelmingly ignorant decisions that led to 6 deaths.
  • ACT 4
  • Go, Nurse. Go with her. We’ll to church tomorrow.
  • First in the act, Romeo blindly follows the source of his "love", he's lead directly to Juliet's balcony. This is Romeo's second ignorant, hastily, decision that will lead to the tragic and terrible marriage of Romeo and Juliet. Second in the act, Romeo rushes to get the marriage set up. By the end of the act the marriage ensues. This all occurs in the span of less than 24 hours! Friar Laurence makes the extremely rash and ill-advised decision to marry the infatuated couple.
  • ACT 5
  • Condemnèd villain, I do apprehend thee.
  • First in the act, Mercutio gets into a fight with Tybalt. Mercutio is killed by Tybalt after Romeo attempts to break up the fight. Romeo starts yet another fight which involves Tybalt's slaying. Once again, our characters make large and influential decisions, like multiple killings, with extraordinary haste and little thought. Second in the act, Lord Capulet "sets" the wedding date for Thursday. In the moment Capulet finds this to be the solution to Juliet's sadness but this makes things much worse.
  • This shall determine that.
  • Ay, ay, a scratch, a scratch.
  • What, art thou hurt?
  • Monday, my lord.
  • Monday! Ha, ha. Well, Wednesday is too soon, O' Thursday let it be.
  • First in the act, Friar Laurence makes the rash and dire decision to create a death-simulating potion for Juliet. Friar Laurence shows just how incapable he is of making a decent decision in a dire situation, as he ignorantly gives a death potion to a 13-year-old. Second in the act, Lord Capulet decides to move up Juliet's wedding date to Wednesday. Capulet's blind decision to change the date is important because it escalates the situation more and enforces the blindness of Friar Laurence.
  • Give me, give me! O, tell not me of fear!
  • We shall be short in our provision. 'Tis now near night.
  • First in the act, Romeo kills Paris after rushing to where Juliet's "dead" body lies after receiving the incorrect info. This shows how willing Romeo is to rush into another unnecessary situation. He doesn't think, doesn't need to go to Juliet's grave, and doesn't need to kill Paris. Second in the act, Romeo and Juliet kill themselves. Here, Romeo shows that he is extremely impatient and doesn't even love Juliet. If he truly did he would let her go. Juliet goes on to display a similar mindset.
  • Good gentle youth, tempt not a desperate man.
