I do protest I never injured thee, But love thee better than thou canst devise...be satisfied.
O calm dishonourable, vile submission! Tybalt, will you walk?
I am for you.
Either thou or I, or both, must go with him.
Thou, wretched boy, that didst consort him here shalt with him hence.
Oh, I am fortune's fool!
The Prince will doom thee death if thou art taken. Hence, be gone, away!
Tybalt enters the scene with the Montagues, stirring up a fight between him and Romeo. Romeo does not want to fight, causing Mercutio to be in anger for his shame and putting him in a position to fight Tybalt himself.
And for that offence immediately we do exile him hence.
Tybalt here slain, whom Romeo’s hand did slay. Romeo, that spoke him fair, bade him bethink How nice the quarrel was and urged withal Your high displeasure. All this uttered with gentle breath, calm look, knees humbly bowed.
Tybalt defeats and slays Mercutio in their fight. Romeo becomes outraged, and lets anger take over his reasoning, deciding to fight against Tybalt for revenge.
Farewell! I will omit no opportunity that may convey my greetings, love, to thee.
Methinks I see thee now, thou art so low as one dead in the bottom of a tomb.
Romeo defeats and slays Tybalt in their fight. Benvolio warns Romeo that if the prince catches him, he will be sentenced to death, to which Romeo believes fate gives him his unluckiness.
An you be mine, I’ll give you to my friend. An you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets,
I think it best you married with the county. Oh, he’s a lovely gentleman.Romeo’s a dishclout to him.
(Aside) Is it more sin to wish me thus forsworn, or to dispraise my lord with that same tongue which she hath praised him with above compare so many thousand times? I’ll to the friar to know his remedy.If all else fail, myself have power to die
After Romeo flees, Benvolio gives the report of what happened, somehow landing on Romeo's fault, sentencing Romeo to a smaller punishment, exile.
Romeo must give his final farewell to Juliet, as exile will tear them apart permanently unless they secretly plan something.
When Juliet is told she will marry Paris very soon, she reacts sadly. She attempts to fight her way out of the marriage, but fails. Even the nurse, who has supported her relationship with Romeo, tells Juliet to marry Paris.
