  • "Sir Paris, I will make a desperate tender of my child's love..."
  • After witnessing Romeo kill Tybalt at the fight, the nurse rushes back to inform Juliet on the series of events that had just taken place.

  • After Tybalt's tragic death, the Capulet family is mourning his loss. Thinking Juliet is very upset, Lord Capulet decides to take matters into his own hands and arrange Paris and Juliet's wedding.
  • Once the news is delivered from Juliet's marriage on her upcoming marriage to Paris, Juliet does not hesitate to show her emotions. In other words, after refusing to marry Paris (the marriage in which her father arranged), the tone of the plot changes from happy to angry. In this scene, Lord Capulet is furious with the way Juliet is acting.
