A public place in Verona Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene.
Grudge between Montague and Capulet From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean [Prologue]
Marriage to Paris. What say you Juliet? Marry, that 'marry' is the very theme I came to talk of. Tell me, daughter Juliet, how stands your disposition to be married? [Lady Capulet]
Before the ball - boy's night out Is love a tender thing? Is it too rough, too rude, too boist'rous, and it pricks like a thorn.[Romeo]
Capulet's ballroom You are welcome, gentlemen! [Capulet]
The capulet's Ball - let's party Come, Musicians play. Let's party!
Ballroom entertainment Entertainment at the Ball
Romeo and Juliet-  first kiss Sin from my lips? O trespass sweetly urged! Give me my sin again. [Romeo]
What light through yonder window breaks... But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the East, and Juliet is the sun! [Romeo]
Parting is such sweet sorrow Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say good night til it be morrow. [Juliet]
Romen and Juliet exchange vows So smile the heavens upon this wholy act that after-hours with sorrow chide us not [Friar Lawrence]
and are married Come, come with me, and we will make short work; For, by your leaves, you shall not stay alone. [Friar Lawrence]
a joyous occasion Till Holy Church incorporate two in one [Friar Lawrence]
Mercutio, Romeo's friend challenges Tybalt Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries That thou has done me; therefore turn and draw... [Tybolt]
Mercutio is killed by Tybalt A plague on both your houses! They have made worms meat of me. I have it, and soundly too. Your houses! [Mercutio]
Romeo avenges Mercutio's death by killing Tybolt Romeo, away be gone! The citizens are up, and Tybalt slain. Stand not amazed. The prince will doom thee death if thou art taken. Hence, be gone, away! [Benvolio]
Tybolt is dead - Juliet's new husband is a murderer and banished My husband lives, that Tybolt would have slain; and Tybolt's dead, that would have slain my husband. 'Tybolt is dead, and Romeo - banished.' [Juliet]
Romeo is told to go and comfort Juliet O Lord, I could have stayed here all night to hear good counsel. O' what learning is! My lord, I'll temm my lady you will come. [Nurse]
the morning after the night before - a stolen moment Wilt thou be gone? It is not yet near day. It was the nightingale, and not the lark, that pierced the fearfull hollow of thine ear. [Juliet]
Juliet is told to marry Paris - she is not pleased by this decision Hang thee, young baggage! Disobedient wrethc! I tell thee what - get thee to Church a thursday or never look me in the face. [Capulet]
Juliet takes a potion to feign death, thus avoiding marrying Paris Romeo, I come! This do I drink to thee. [Juliet]
The Capulets and Paris mourn for the drugged Juliet Her blood has settled, and her joints are stiff; Life and these lips have long separated. Death lies on her like an untimely frost upon the sweetest flower of all the field. [Capulet]
Romeo, on hearing Juliet is dead, buys a poison for himself Let me have a dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear as will disperse itself through all veins that the life-weary taker may fall dead. [Romeo]
In the Sepulchre, Romeo encounters an enraged Paris, and duels with him Can vengeance be pursued further than death? Condemned villain, I do apprehend thee. Obey, and go with me; for thou must die. [Paris]
Paris dead, Romeo says goodbye to Juliet Arms, take your last embrace! and, lips, O you the doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss a dateless bargain to engrossing death! [Romeo]
Romeo is dead, Juliet is revived to discover her one true love is dead Romeo! O, pale! Who else? What, Paris too? And steeped in blood? Ah, what an unkind hour is guilty of this lamentable chance! The lady stirs.... [Friar Lawrence]
Juliet kills herself in grief, the bodies are discovered Sovereign, here lies the County Paris slain; and Romeo dead; and Juliet, dead before, warm and new killed. {Watchman]
a crwod gathers to mourn the sensless waste of young life Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things; Some shall be pardoned, and some punished; For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo [Prince]
