Storyboard Text

  • Hey! Pharmacist!
  • Who’s that calling so loud?
  • I see that you are poor. Here are forty ducats. Let me have a shot of poison, something that works so fast that the person who takes it will die as fast as gunpowder exploding in a canon.
  • I have lethal poisons like that. But it’s against the law to sell them in Mantua, and the penalty is death.
  • You’re this poor and wretched and still afraid to die? I can see in your eyes that you’re starving. Anyone can see that you’re a beggar. The world is not your friend, and neither is the law. The world doesn’t make laws to make you rich. So don’t be poor. Break the law, and take this money.
  • I agree because I’m poor, not because I want to.
  • (gives APOTHECARY money) There is your gold. Money is a worse poison to men’s souls, and commits more murders in this awful world, than these poor poisons that you’re not allowed to sell. I’ve sold you poison. You haven’t sold me any. Goodbye.
  • (gives ROMEO poison) Put this in any kind of liquid you want and drink it down. Even if you were as strong as twenty men, it would kill you immediately.
