A brief summary of Romeo and Juliet, written by Shakespeare.
I hate all Montagues and would gladly strike them down like dogs!
Well, here comes your chance at a fight. Draw your sword!
Sampson and Gregory, both Capulets, want to start a fight against their rival family, the Montagues.
Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?
After the fight breaks up, Benvolio, a Montague, asks Romeo why he is so upset. Romeo responds saying he has just been rejected by Rosaline. Benvolio asks Romeo if he wants to infiltrate a Capulet party, and see if any attractive ladies are there.
What sadness lengthens Romeo's hours? Are you in love?
With all the admired beauties of Verona, surely one or two will catch your eye.
Love is smoke raised with the fume of sighs. What else is love but a madness most discreet?
Did my heart love till now? For I never saw true beauty till this night.
At the party, Romeo spots Juliet, a Capulet, and falls in love with her immediately. Meanwhile, Tybalt, a Capulet, wants to strike him down.
Now, by the stock of honor of my kin, I shall strike him dead. I hold it not a sin.
Tell Juliet to make some excuse and get thee to Friar Laurence's cell this afternoon. There, she will be married.
Romeo tells the nurse that Juliet will secretly be married at Friar Laurence's cell.
This afternoon, sir? Well, she shall be there.
Now, Tybalt. While Mercutio's soul is but a little way above our heads, we shall stay and keep him company. Either thou, or I, or both, most go with him.
Romeo, the hate I bear thee cannot be described better than this. Thou art a villian.
A big fight occurs on the street. Mercutio, a Montague, dies on the street. Romeo is enraged and kills Tybalt. After, Romeo is banned from Verona by the prince.
What's here? A cup, closed in my true love's hand? Poison, I see, hath been his timeless end.
Since Romeo was banished from Verona, Juliet had to take a pill that made her seem like she was dead, so she could be reunited with Romeo again. But, news spread to where Romeo was that she was dead, so Romeo killed himself with poison. Juliet found that Romeo was dead, therefore killing herself with Romeo's dagger.
