fume of sighs

A choking gall, and a preserving sweet.
Farewell, my coz." Romeo,
"I must another way,
To fetch a ladder, by the which your love
Must climb a bird's nest soon when its dark." (2.5.9)
Here, the nurse is literally talking about getting a ladder for Romeo to climb up so he can spend the night in Juliet's bedroom. But as always the Nurse is implying something dirty—To "climb a bird's nest" is also slang for having sex. This shows that the nurse and Juliet have a joking and teasing relationship.

Romeo, we must have you dance.
You are a lover. Borrow Cupid’s wings

Usually Between Two Individuals
Capulet forces Juliet into going to church to marry Count Paris
Love is connected with looks
clouded with thoughts of money
ended by their hate, / Than death prorogued,
no love involved
no chance to retaliate
Romeo rather have her love and die on the spot. Than not have her love and die later.
A strong need for Love
Insulted for disobedience

And yet '
Thank me no thankings, nor, proud me no prouds
