Good father, I beseech you on my knees, Hear me with patience but to speak a word.
Hang thee, young baggage! Disobedient wretch! I tell thee what: get thee to church o' Thursday, Or never after look me in the face
Be rul'd by me, forget to think of her. By giving liberty unto thine eyes; Examine other beauties.
Immediately we do exile him hence.
Hence "banished" is banish'd from the world, And world's exile is death; then "banished" is death mis-term'd.
An external conflict, man vs man in the novel Romeo and Juliet is when Lord Capulet and Juliet have an argument over the fact of Juliet marrying Paris. This would be the desire of Capulet to have Juliet marry the rich Paris but Juliet would think otherwise. Capulet doesn't know this but Juliet would rather be with Romeo instead of Paris as she has "true love" with Romeo. As an attempt to persuade her father to not marry Paris it would result in the dispute between the two since Juliet doesn't want to have an arranged marriage with someone she doesn't love but Capulet approves the idea. The quote above portrays some of the things said in such argument as neither characters can agree on what they want to do with the Juliet marrying Paris. Further developing the plot as this argument would depict what would occur to the future of Juliet. Choose to be with a rich man for the rest of her life who she doesn't love or be with the love of her life but not be seen the same by her parents.
Capulet: "Thursday is near; lay hand on heart, advise, An you be mine, I'll give you to my friend; An you be not, hang beg, starve, die in the streets, For, by my soul, I'll ne'er acknowledge thee, nor what is mine shall never do thee good. trust to 't, bethink you; I'll not be forsworn." Juliet: "Is there no pity sitting in the clouds, That sees into the bottom of my grief? O, sweet my mother, case me not away!"(Act 3, Scene 5)
Romeo: "Bid a sick man in sadness make his will- A word ill urg'd to one that is so ill! In sadness, cousin, I do love a woman... She hath, and in that sparing make huge waste; For beauty starv'd with her severity, Cuts beauty off from all posterity. She is too fair, too wise, wisely to fair, To merit bliss by making me despair. She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow Do I live dead that live to tell it now...Benvolio: By giving liberty unto thine eyes; Examine other beauties." (Act 1, scene 1)

"Friar Lawrence:...I bring thee tidings of the Prince's doom. A gentler judgement...Not body's death, but...banishment. Here from Verona art thou banished...for the world is broad and wide. Romeo: Ha, banishment! Be merciful, say 'death,' For exile hath more terror in his look, Much more than death...there is no world without Verona walls...It's torture, not mercy! Heaven is here where Juliet lives." (Act 3, Scene 3)

Romeo struggles against being banished, and nature’s forces would prevent him from coming back to see his beloved wife.
