Storyboard Text

  • Mecca Hamm-Bey Honors English A3
  • The balcony of love
  • "Can I go away while my heart stays here? I have to go back to where my heart is."(75)
  • Romeo hides away in the darkness so Benvolio and Mercutio won't bother him.
  • Let’s go. There’s no point in looking for him if he doesn’t want to be found.(77)
  • "It’s easy for someone to joke about scars if they’ve never been cut"().
  • Romeo is refering to Benvoilio and Mercutio making fun of him. Then he over hears Juliet from her balcony and decides to listen from behind trees.
  • "Oh, Romeo, Romeo, why do you have to be Romeo? Forget about your father and change your name"().
  • "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"().
  • Romeo decides to reply to Juliet's secret thoughts still hidden in the trees. They are discussing the matter of their families anger keeping them apart.
  • "It’s only your name that’s my enemy. You’d still be yourself even if you stopped being a Montague. What’s a Montague anyway?"()
  • "I am neither of those things if you dislike them"().
  • Juliet recognizes Romeo's voice and he's saying that if she wanted him to change his name or be someone else he would because he loves her (keep in mind that they first met 2 hrs ago and a party and she's 13 and he's 16).
  • "I haven’t heard you say a hundred words yet, but I recognize the sound of your voice. Aren’t you Romeo? And aren’t you a Montague?"()
  • Love showed me the way—the same thing that made me look for you in the first place. Love told me what to do, and I let love borrow my eyes(85).
  • Romeo is expressing his love very very much and Juilet is saying wait slow down we cant make all these descions now we'll do it tomorrow.
  • Although you bring me joy, I can’t take joy in this exchange of promises tonight. It’s too crazy. We haven’t done enough thinking. It’s too sudden. It’s too much like lightning...(87).
