Transcript of Copy of Romeo and Juliet: Entire Play Overview, notes, quizzes and follow-along

Romeo and Juliet Act 1 Act 2 Act 3 Act 4 Act 5 Scene 2 Scene 3 Scene 4 Scene 5 Warmup Prologue Explain how you believe Romeo and Juliet might be different from West Side Story. 1 Two households, both alike in dignity, 2 In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, 3 From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, 4 Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. 5 From forth the fatal loins of these two foes 6 A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life; 7 Whose misadventured piteous overthrows 8 Do with their death bury their parents' strife. 9 The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love, 10 And the continuance of their parents' rage, 11 Which, but their children's end, nought could remove, 12 Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage; 13 The which if you with patient ears attend, 14 What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend. Baby Romeo Baby Juliet Scene 1 Stage Directions These tell the reader what is happening on stage and how it is happening. Pay attention to these! This will help you figure out what people should be doing, especially if you are a reader for the day! SCENE I. Verona. A public place.

Enter SAMPSON and GREGORY, of the house of Capulet, armed with swords and bucklers While we read, keep watch up here. There will be helpful stage directions, images and hints to keep you on track. Names of people on the Capulet side will be in BLUE. Names of people on the Montague side will be in RED. Double Entendre a word or expression capable of two interpretations with one usually sexual = Enter ABRAHAM and BALTHASAR They fight

Enter BENVOLIO Benvolio Beats down their swords Enter Tybalt They fight

Enter, several of both houses, who join the fray; then enter Citizens, with clubs. Enter CAPULET in his gown, and LADY CAPULET Enter MONTAGUE and LADY MONTAGUE Enter PRINCE, with Attendants a long speech made by one actor in a play, film, etc. Monologue: Exeunt all but MONTAGUE, LADY MONTAGUE, and BENVOLIO Enter ROMEO Exeunt MONTAGUE and LADY MONTAGUE Chaste/Chastity: not having experienced sexual intercourse Exeunt (both Romeo and Benvolio) Now that Act 1, Scene 1 is over... Why are the two sides fighting? Why are the citizens angry? Why is Romeo so upset? What is it that he wants? Homework Complete the assignment on Edmodo due on May 1. Watch the opening scene video from West Side Story. Compare and contrast it with the Act 1, Scene 1 of Romeo and Juliet. Enter Capulet and Paris
and Servant Hint: Paris = Chino from West Side Story He's supposed to marry Juliet! LOVE TRIANGLE! (almost) = Exeunt Paris and Capulet The Servant is illiterate! This opens the opportunity for Romeo and Benvolio to find out about the Capulet party, where ROSALINE will be! Enter Romeo and Benvolio. Remember: We are still on day 1, and Romeo has NOT met Juliet yet. IMPORTANT! Rosaline will be at the party, but so will TYBALT (the Capulet who HATES the Montague family and wants to kill them all). This gun is for you, Montague. Benvolio has convinced Romeo to go to the party to show Romeo that his "swan" (Rosaline) is a "crow" (ugly). Warmup Answer the following questions about the Romeo+Juliet opening scene (Covering Act 1, Scene 1) 1) How does it compare to the opening scene from West Side Story?

2) How does it use visuals to make the meaning of the dialogue more understandable? Scene 3. A room in Capulet's house. Enter LADY CAPULET and Nurse. Reminder: Maidenhead virginity Lady Capulet was married young as well. Can't understand the Nurse?
It's because she's low-class, uneducated, and highly BAWDY. Bawdy: indecent; lewd; obscene Maid Juliet is a MAID and does not want to be married. a young unmarried girl, usually a virgin. Enter Juliet Reminder: Juliet is supposed to marry Paris! Enter Servant (and exeunt almost immediatly!) EXEUNT! Comic Relief an amusing scene, incident, or speech introduced into serious or tragic elements, as in a play, in order to provide temporary relief from tension, This is usually provided by Mercutio Scene 4. A Street. (it's now night time, right before the party on the first day) Enter ROMEO, MERCUTIO, BENVOLIO, with five or six Maskers, Torch-bearers, and others. Wait! Why did I make Mercutio PURPLE? The CAPULET party is a MASK (or MASQUE) Mask/Masque a dramatic entertainment of the 16th to 17th centuries in England, consisting of pantomime, dancing, dialogue, and song. Is Mercutio on drugs? No, but he gets lost in thought on Queen Mab. Queen Mab a mischievous, tantalizing fairy who governs and produces people's dreams. Mercutio's goes on a monologue about Queen Mab as a way to explain why he thinks believing that dreams have a meaning is ridiculous. I fear, too early: for my mind misgives
Some consequence yet hanging in the stars
Shall bitterly begin his fearful date
With this night's revels and expire the term
Of a despised life closed in my breast
By some vile forfeit of untimely death.
But He, that hath the steerage of my course,
Direct my sail! On, lusty gentlemen. ROMEO FORESHADOWING! Exeunt! Warmup SCENE V. A hall in Capulet's house. Musicians waiting. Enter Servingmen with napkins. Identify one decision/action someone makes/does in each of the first four scenes which get us to Romeo and Juliet dying in the end. Example: In scene 1, the Montagues and the Capulets increase the tensions and anger between the two sides by fighting on the streets. Here's an example of what you should be doing for your 4th Quarter project. Rate their performance. (Good, bad?) Explain what they did well, and what they did poorly. The Servants are stressing over the party. Some of them are being ordered to be in two places at once. Enter Capulet and Juliet Lord Capulet jokes that any of the ladies who are not dancing must have too many corns on their feet. EW. And Second Capulet Romeo has taken notice of Juliet and talks about her being the most beautiful girl he's ever seen. (How quickly Rosaline is forgotten!) OMG! So Hot! Yipes! Tybalt noticed Romeo. What?!? Lord Capulet DOESN'T want Tybalt to attack Romeo. Actually, he thinks Romeo is a pretty nice kid with a good reputation. Fancy that. Tybalt vows to get revenge. This is foreshadowing! " this intrusion shall
Now seeming sweet convert to bitter gall." Exit Tybalt Remember! Two important elements of Romantic Tragedies: Quick Love Excessive Love Enter NURSE! The nurse knows who Romeo really is. (Juliet must be very sheltered to be the only one in the room to not know Romeo.) Romeo finds out Juliet is a Capulet! Now he's depressed again! Enter BENVOLIO to drag him away! EXEUNT all but Juliet and the Nurse! "Go ask his name: if he be married. My grave is like to be my wedding bed." Juliet is foreshadowing! How? EXEUNT ALL My only love sprung from my only hate!
Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me,
That I must love a loathed enemy. Juliet's last words here: She believes that love cannot be changed once it happens. PROLOGUE This second prologue introduces the rest of the play. It explains how Romeo's previous love for Rosaline is now dead and his affections for Juliet now secured. It goes on to explain that Romeo and Juliet love each other just as extremely, but have no way of seeing each other. (But love finds a way, right? Scene 1 (Be kind!) Homework: Log on to Edmodo and respond to Romeo's latest post and Juliet's latest post. Warmup Here's an example of what you should be doing for your 4th Quarter project. Rate their performance. (Good, bad?) Explain what they did well, and what they did poorly. (Be kind!) Quarter Quiz #3 Part 1 Define the following terms: Maidenhead Monologue Chaste/Chastity Biting thumb Text Questions Part 2 1. How old is Juliet? 2. Who is supposed to marry Juliet? 3. Who was Romeo in love with before he met Juliet? 4. Why was Romeo depressed about Rosaline? Bonus: How old is Juliet's mother? (approximate) Everyone's leaving the party, but Romeo just can't leave. He's in LOVE! Romeo Juliet Enter Romeo Enter Benvolio with Mercutio Where the holy maidenhead did Romeo go? Mercutio teases Romeo and his constant obsession with love. He calls Romeo by describing Rosaline and her body (rather crudely at that). Rosaline's quivering thigh? Mercutio:
This cannot anger him: 'twould anger him
To raise a spirit in his mistress' circle
Of some strange nature, letting it there stand
Till she had laid it and conjured it down;
That were some spite: my invocation
Is fair and honest, and in his mistres s' name
I conjure only but to raise up him. Translation: Romeo would get mad if someone else was screwin' his girl Rosaline Medlar Fruit An apple-like fruit best eaten and enjoyed when well aged and ripened. Also know as the open-ass Key Fact! Benvolio and Mercutio do not know that Romeo just met, kissed, and fell in love with Juliet. All they think is that Romeo is obsessed with Rosaline. Scene 2 Enter Romeo
(hiding in the bushes) Romeo=Creepy stalker. Romeo metaphorically compares Juliet to the sun. Look for these comparisons! Might need some of these. = Vestal Livery Vestal: Virgin Livery: Uniform Romeo: "Cast it off" Yes, Romeo wants Juliet to cast off her virginity (to him, obviously) Juliet Wants Romeo to give up his whole family for her. (But keep in mind, she does not realize that he is listening.) Romeo would rather be found in the Capulet garden and be killed than to have Juliet not love him. Kill me now if you don't love me! OK! BANG!

Sike naw, I <3 you. Juliet is embarrased. I'm guh! Juliet is both unsure and wanting of Romeo's love. She wants to slow down and keep going at the same time. Enter Juliet Exeunt Juliet Enter Juliet Juliet tells Romeo that if he wants to get married, he needs to tell her when and where by tomorrow, or else leave her the alone.

7. Romeo wants to get in Juliet's pants.
8. Juliet gets Romeo to agree to sending her word by tomorrow when and if they'll get married.
9. Romeo agrees, and can't wait to get in Juliet's pants. Scene 3 Begin day 2! Enter Friar Laurence Friar Laurence loves herbs. Take that in whatever sense thou wilt. (He's an expert on plants and everything they do.) Enter Romeo Despite his views on sex, Romeo is devoutly religious. Friar Laurence is his closet confidante, and knows all about Rosaline---which is why he's afraid that Romeo was with Rosaline last night. Friar Laurence chides Romeo for his fickle heart, and how soon and easily he has forgotten Rosaline. For this alliance may so happy prove
To turn your households' rancor to pure love. Friar Laurence Exeunt all Warmup Here's an example of what you should be doing for your 4th Quarter project. Rate their performance. (Good, bad?) Explain what they did well, and what they did poorly. (Be kind!) Scene 4 Enter Mercutio and Benvolio Ok, seriously this time. Where the Frankenstein is Romeo?? Tybalt sent a letter to Romeo's father challenging Romeo to a duel. Remember: Tybalt vowed to get revenge for Romeo going to the Capulet party. Prepare for bitter gall, thou villain Romeo! LMFAO! Benvolio thinks that Romeo can take Tybalt. Mercutio thinks Romeo is too obsessed with love to be able to fight the well-trained Tybalt. Romeo's a G, son! He'll be all like this! Blam Blam! Whatevs! Romeo is sweet for it! Enter Romeo (happy) I feel pretty! Oh so pretty! Romeo claims that he got lucky last night (lies!). Mercutio and Benvolio think it was with Rosaline. You hit it!?! My pump is well flowered! Enter Nurse and Peter I am NOT a BAWD! Bawd: A woman who runs a brothel The Nurse has come to get Romeo's decision. Marriage or not? Mercutio teases the Nurse and calls her an ugly prostitute as she has come to deliver a message to Romeo. What is the parallel scene from West Side Story? Romeo gets the Nurse to agree to bring Juliet that evening to Friar Laurence where they will be married in a secret ceremony. Afterwards, he intends to climb her balcony and consummate the marriage. Lemme climb your balcony! Tee-hee! Exeunt! Scene 5 Scene 6 Enter Juliet Juliet sent the Nurse out to find Romeo at 9. It is now past noon. She's obviously growing anxious. Hello marriage, goodbye vestal livery! Enter Nurse and Peter And exit Peter The Nurse is purposefully taking forever to tell Juliet the news. I know something you don't know! Srsly? You are no longer my bff. JK, tell me! The Nurse finally tells Juliet that Romeo is waiting at Friar Laurence's cell to be married to her that very afternoon. OMG, what if he says yes?!? Exeunt! Enter Friar Laurence and Romeo Ok, NOW my pump will be well flowered! These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which, as they kiss, consume.
The sweetest honey Is loathsome in his own deliciousness
And in the taste confounds the appetite. Therefore love moderately.
Long love doth so.
Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow. Foreshadowing! Friar Laurence: Enter Juliet 'Nuff said. Exeunt all! 1 Paragraph: Who is more into the relationship, Romeo or Juliet? Explain with textual evidence! Quarter Quiz #4 Scene 1 Warmup Here's an example of what you should be doing for your 4th Quarter project. Rate their performance. (Good, bad?) Explain what they did well, and what they did poorly. (Be kind!) Enter Benvolio and Mercutio It's the evening of the 2nd day. Benvolio is afraid a fight might start. For now, these hot days is the mad blood stirring. Mercutio scolds Benvolio for being too quick to fight for the smallest things. You fight people for no reason! Take it back or I'll shoot! Enter Tybalt, Petruchio, and other Capulets Tybalt still wants revenge on Romeo Bitter gall!! Enter Romeo Reminder: Romeo JUST got married. Now he's come to make peace with Tybalt and tell Mercutio and Benvolio about his good news. BFFs now, right?? Die
villain! Romeo refuses to fight Tybalt. Mercutio can't stand seeing Romeo taking the insults and not fighting back; he challenges Tybalt to a fight in Romeo's place. Turn and draw, Romeo! LOL, naw. I ain't bout that life no mo WTH...Romeo, you're sweet, son! Tybalt and Mercutio fight Romeo tries to break up the fight, causing Mercutio to get stabbed under Romeo's arm. A plague on BOTH your houses! Tybalt, Petruchio and other Capulets exit. Mercutio dies, still making jokes all the way. Look for me tomorrow and you shall find me a grave man. Grave: serious or solemn Exeunt Mercutio and Benvolio. Effeminate Having traits considered typical of a female. Romeo complains that his love for Juliet has made him soft, and in doing so, caused Mercutio's death. Romeo smash! Enter Benvolio Enter Tybalt, still looking to fight Romeo. Romeo and Tybalt fight. Die! Your mom! (Tybalt dies) Enter Citizens Enter Prince, Lord Montague, Lord Capulet, Lady Capulet, Lady Montague Both sides blame the other. The Prince doesn't care, and banishes Romeo from Verona.

Until the Nurse insults him... Don't talk about my man, ho! Juliet decides that Tybalt got what he deserved because he was trying to kill her husband, Romeo. She decides Romeo's life is 10,000 times more important than Tybalt's. To make Juliet feel better, the Nurse promises to go find Romeo. EXEUNT Scene 3 Enter Friar Laurence Seriously, Romeo? You really screwed up this time! Enter Romeo Upon discovering he is banished, he is, of course, depressed. How am I supposed to take her maidenhead now? The Nurse has shown up and is knocking at the door. Enter Nurse She tells Romeo about Juliet's depression. Romeo asks where his name lies in his body so he can cut it out. Friar Laurence scolds Romeo for how he is asking and tells him several reasons why he should be happy. 1. Juliet is alive.
2. Tybalt is dead instead of you.
3. You escaped the death penalty. Friar Laurence tells Romeo to STFU and go comfort Juliet, but be gone by morning. Friar Laurence has a plan: 1. Romeo goes to Mantua
2. Friar Laurence and the Nurse tell everyone about Romeo and Juliet's marriage
3. Friar Laurence begs the Prince to forgive Romeo.

I'll sit back and say nothing while my daughter gets married off to an older man without her consent :D Enter Romeo and Juliet It is now the morning of the 3rd day. Was it good for you? I've had better... JK JK! Romeo tries to make sure he leaves before the sun comes up (if he gets caught in the city he'll be put to death.) Juliet tries to convince him to stay. Yea... it was nice. Gotta go. OMFG, its like, totally not morning yet! Enter Nurse Put some clothes on! (Exit Nurse) O God, I have an ill-divining soul.
Methinks I see thee now, thou art so low
As one dead in the bottom of a tomb.
Either my eyesight fails, or thou look'st pale. Foreshadowing! Juliet: Exit Romeo You look dead... WTH? So do you! Enter
Lady Capulet Sooo...Juliet... about Paris...yeah, you're gunna marry him now. That'll make you happy, right?! Lady Capulet promises to send someone to Mantua to poison Romeo and kill him. This is an example of DRAMATIC IRONY. When the audience understands a situation that the characters in a story do not. Juliet tells her mother that she would rather be married to her "enemy" Romeo instead of Paris. I'd rather marry Romeo!
(giggle!) Huh? Uh...
Nothing Enter Lord Capulet and Nurse Good news!
You get to marry Paris! What?!?! Yeah, no thnx. Lord Capulet is pissed that Juliet refuses to marry Paris. You're marrying my friend, you little s**t! :'( Juliet, distraught, asks the nurse what to do. The Nurse tells her to marry Paris. Nurse!
What do I do?? Uh...
Marry Paris!
More sex, riighhht? Juliet decides to go seek out help from Friar Laurence.
She also decides if there is no help, she will kill herself. Forget this. I'm out. Death is better than marrying Paris. (Exit Nurse) EXEUNT!

your pants on. Enter Juliet Your face is mine! MMmmmmm *Puke* Exit Paris Prepare that fine joint for a thrashing on Thursday, my wife!

Here's an example of what you should be doing for your 4th Quarter project. Rate their performance. (Good, bad?) Explain what they did well, and what they did poorly.

(Be kind!Or not...) Warmup Juliet is so upset that she threatens to kill herself if Friar Laurence can't keep her from marrying Paris. So... Yeah, Jules. This whole thing is pretty messed up. And I'm kind of to blame. Friar Laurence's new plan: Juliet uses the poison to pretend to be dead, gets put in the family tomb, Romeo comes and saves her when she wakes up, and taadaa! Happily ever after! Drink
this! Yum! *cough, hack* EXEUNT Scene 2 Enter Capulet, Lady Capulet, Nurse, Servingman Marriage is what brings us together! Lord Capulet is preparing everyone for the wedding. Exit Servingman Enter Juliet I'm so happy to marry Paris, I could just die! (oh please, someone kill me!) Lord Capulet is so happy to hear that Juliet has agreed to marry Paris (or so she says), that he moves the wedding to Wednesday. This is my happy face. Yaaay, wedding! Exit Juliet and Nurse Exit Lady Capulet EXEUNT Scene 3 Enter Juliet and Nurse You'll forget Romeo in no time! Whatever, punk. Leave me alone. Enter Lady Capulet Need
help? Go help yourself. Exit Lady Capulet and Nurse Juliet is unsure of whether or not to trust the poison. She fears that either it might not work, or that Friar Laurence has really set her up and that the poison may actually kill her. Just in case, she has her knife to stab herself with if it doesn't work right. Woah... if this doesn't work I'm totally stabbing myself. Juliet decides to drink the poison. Oh well. Bottoms up! Scene 4 Enter Lady Capulet and Nurse Enter Lord Capulet Why is everyone still sleeping?! Exeunt Lady Capulet and Nurse Enter Servingmen Lord Capulet is rushing to get the wedding together quickly. Nurse! Party time! Enter Nurse Exeunt all but Nurse The Nurse goes to wake up Juliet, only to find that she won't wake up. Everyone immediately thinks she's dead. Juliet!
uh-oh... Enter Lady Capulet :( :( Enter Lord Capulet NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Enter Friar Laurence, Paris, Musicians Why are we here?? Everyone is upset over what they perceive as the loss of Juliet. But...but... what about my underage bride?? Friar Laurence convinces everyone to stop standing around and grieving, and to hurry and bury Juliet in the family tomb. (All according to his plan, of course) Ok, everyone calm down!
We need to bury her so my plan... err.. so she won't rot. Yea. That's it. The scene ends with the light banter between the musicians and Peter. Peter wants them to play music to make him feel better. The musicians refuse, saying the recent death of Juliet makes the mood wrong for music. Exeunt

Here's an example of what you should be doing for your 4th Quarter project. Rate their performance. (Good, bad?) Explain what they did well, and what they did poorly.

(Be kind!Or not...) Warmup Scene 1 Enter Romeo Romeo talks of another dream (just like in Act 1). This time, he dreamed Juliet came and found him dead... and he interprets it as a happy and joyful thing. I totally dreamed Juliet found me dead. AWESOME! Enter Balthasar Balthasar shows up to tell Romeo that he saw Juliet's funeral. Romeo's reaction, not knowing Friar Laurence's plan, is obvious. Uh... Bad
Ro-me-o Exit Balthasar Romeo grieves over the loss of Juliet, but decides to go see her one more time. He also plans to buy poison from a poor apothecary to kill himself with. Apothecary A pharmacist. Life sucks.
POISON! Enter Apothecary The Apothecary does not want to sell Romeo the poison, but Romeo persuades him to do so. Fine. It'll pay for my plastic surgery. Sell me poison, you ugly wretch! Exeunt! Scene 2 Enter Friar John Friar John was supposed to deliver a message to Romeo about Friar Laurence's plan. Things didn't go his way. OMFG.
I gave you ONE JOB. Holy Saint Francis!
I'm Sorry! Friar John was quarantined in a house due to a recent outbreak of the bubonic plague. As a result, he was never able to make it to Romeo. This is kind of bad. Aren't you like, 0-3 for successful plans? Friar Laurence leaves to free Juliet from the tomb, realizing that no Romeo means Juliet will awake in an tomb full of corpses. I see dead people! Scene 3 Enter Paris and the Page Paris, still in love with Juliet, is trying to bring flowers to her grave. Dead girls don't say no! Enter Romeo and Balthasar Romeo gives Balthasar a letter to deliver to Lord Capulet. Romeo also tells Balthasar not to interfere, or Romeo will rip him limb from limb. Try to stop me. I dare you. PASS. Paris sees Romeo and thinks that Romeo is up to no good at the Capulet tomb. He challenges Romeo to a fight. Bring it on, scoundrel! I'm not jealous! Romeo tries to convince Paris that fighting is a bad idea. Paris insists, and Romeo fights, and kills him. I warned you! Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuddddgggggeee! (Exit Page) Romeo doesn't realize who it is that he fought and killed until afterward. WTF! Again??? Lay me...
to Juliet... Romeo opens the tomb and ironically remarks on how alive she looks. She looks so alive! zzzzz...stab stab...zzzz Having said his last, ironic goodbyes, Romeo drinks the poison and dies. Man, those drugs are quick! Enter Friar Laurence Friar Laurence arrives hoping to save Juliet from the tomb. Instead, he finds Romeo and Paris dead in the Tomb, and Juliet just waking up. Can I do ANYTHING right?? Juliet Awakens And finds Romeo and Paris dead. She decides life is not worth living without Romeo and stabs herself to death. I'm stabbing myself! I really mean it this time! (Exit Friar Laurence) Enter Three Watchmen and Paris' Page Five people slipped by us, so uh... we kind of suck at our jobs. Enter Balthasar Enter Friar Laurence Enter Prince Enter Capulet and Lady Capulet Enter Montague ???? Rundown: Everyone shows up. The Prince is wondering what has happened. Friar Laurence is crying like a baby. Lord Montague's wife has just died from grief, bringing the death total for the story up to 6. After Friar Laurence explains what happened, the Prince explains that the hatred between the two sides has caused all of the deaths. Lord Capulet and Lord Montague put aside their hatred and vow to make monuments to their children. Exeunt And Finally... The Reduced Shakespeare Company does Romeo and Juliet in 12 Minutes! Tybalt is the original Bernardo The Nurse is the original Anita. The Lieutenant is the Prince =
