Storyboard Text

  • (4.3.15)
  • "...I have a faint cold fear thrills through my veins..."
  • (4.1.45-46)
  • "O, shut the door! And when thou hast done so, Come weep with me, past hope, past cure, past help."
  • "Death is my son-in-law. Death is my heir. My daughter he hath wedded. I will die, And leave him all. Life, living, all is Death's."
  • (4.5.38-40)
  • This scene is in her bedroom, as shown here and in the book, and this is when she starts to have doubts about the plan of drinking the vial that Friar Lawrence gave to her. This quote shows the nervousness and fear she goes through during this.
  • (4.1.84-86)
  • "With reeky shanks and yellow chapless skulls; Or bid me go into a new-made grave And hide me with a dead man in his shroud."
  • As Juliet seeks for Friar Lawrence for help on getting out of this marriage with Paris, this quote expresses her desperation of getting out of this sticky situation. I portray Juliet and the Friar sitting alone discussing things at a table, showing their privacy.
  • (4.3.58)
  • "Romeo, Romeo, Romeo! Here's drink. I drink to thee."
  • "Musicians, O musicians, "Heart's Ease," "Heart's Ease." O, an you will have me live, play "Heart's Ease."
  • The family grieves over the "death" of Juliet, and I portray all characters of the scene at a church, as it seems fitting to the sadness of the scene. This quote shows personification, giving human qualities to death itself. I have included all the characters involved in the scene, which are Juliet, Lord and Lady Capulet, Paris, the Nurse, and the Friar.
  • (4.5.100-101)
  • Juliet's dialogue includes many words that express the imagery of what the tomb would be like such as wet and smelly flesh. Her expressions such as "morgue full of dead bodies" and "freshly dug grave with a dead man in his tomb" . This part is where Juliet tells the Friar of the many things she would rather do than marry Paris.
  • Juliet is to blame for the mistakes occurred throughout the story, such as this one shown with her drinking the substance from the vial. She put herself in this desperate situation due to her own fault, by giving up everything for Romeo. If she had danced with Paris at the party like she was supposed to, her and Romeo never would have met. Also, she is the reason that Tybalt came up to the Montagues, resulting in two deaths. Juliet's actions branched off into several mistakes, leaving the guilt to Juliet.
  • This event happens in Scene 5 by Peter and the musicians arguing over what songs to be played at Juliet's funeral. This serves as comic relief to the grief of the family to Juliet's death, and allows a break for the audience and the story.
