Transcript of Romeo and Juliet

Pun- "Ask for me tomorrow and you shall find me a grave man."- Mercutio, Act 3, Scene 1, Line 95
The pun is that if you ask for Mercutio tomorrow, he will be dead.
William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was born on April 23rd, 1564 in Stratford-on- Avon, United Kingdom. He has written several plays, and he is often called the English national poet. He is considered the greatest dramatist of all time. He died on April 23rd, 1616.
Friar Lawrence
Friar Lawrence weds Romeo and Juliet. Friar is wise, but is also impulsive like Romeo and Juliet.
"Therefore love moderately: long love doth so"- Act 2, Scene 6, Line 14
Tybalt is Juliet's cousin who is he reason why Romeo was banished from Verona. Tybalt is a serious, mature person.
"Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries that thou hast done me; therefore turn and draw."
Act 3, Scene 1, Lines 63 & 64
Impulsive Action #1
Action: Romeo forgot Rosaline and fell in love with Juliet quickly. It is impulsive because Romeo went to the party to see Rosaline, but saw Juliet, and it was love at first sight.

Consequence: He found out that Juliet was a Capulet, a rival of his family.

Quote: "With Rosaline, my ghostly father? No. I have forgot that name and that name's woe."
(Speaker-Romeo, Act 1 Scene 3, lines 45-46)
Mercutio is Romeo's cousin who is part of the turning point for Romeo and Juliet's relationship. He is a very playful and fun person.
"Good King of Cats, nothing but one of your nine lives."- Act 3, Scene 1, Lines 74 & 75
Impulsive Action #2
(Friar Lawrence)
Action: when Romeo ask Friar to marry him and Juliet, he was hesitant at first, but agrees quickly. It is impulsive because he made this decision alone within a matter of minutes.

Consequence: Romeo and Juleit are in a secret marrige that only Romeo, Juliet, Friar, and the nurse know about.

Quote: "Come, come with me, and we will make short work; for, by your leaves, you shall not stay alone till Holy Church incorporate two in one."
(Speaker-Friar, Act 2 Scene 6, lines 35-37)
Impulsive Action #3
(Romeo & Juliet)
Action: Romeo thought Juliet was dead when she was asleep, so he killed himself. When Juliet woke up she saw Romeo dead and killed herself. It is impulsive because if Romeo would have waited he would have realized that Juliet was just sleeping. Instead he thought she was dead.

Consequence: Romeo & Juliet are dead, and peace has been created between the two households.

Quote: "As rich shall Romeo's by his lady's lie--poor sacrifices of our enmity!"
(Speaker-Capulet, Act 5 Scene 3, lines 303-304)
Romeo & Juliet
"Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast."
(Speaker-Friar, Act 2 Scene 3, line 94)
Defining Moment #1
Friar agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet. He thought this would create peace between the two houses. Romeo and Juliet get married, and they have to keep their marriage a secret from the rest of the family. The only people that know about their marriage is Romeo, Juliet, Friar Lawrence, and the Nurse. This creates suspense in the play, because nobody in either family can know about the marriage. If somebody finds out about this there may be a huge problem between the two families that may involve death.

Quote: "In one respect I'll thy assistant be; for this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households' rancor to pure love."
(Speaker-Friar, Act 2 Scene 3, lines 90-92)
Defining Moment #2
Mercutio and Tybalt got in a fight. The fight resulted in the death of Mercutio, and later Tybalt. Benvolio tried to convince them to go inside, but they didn't listen. They met up with the Capulet's, and Mercutio and Tybalt got into a fight, and Mercutio fell dead. This changed the play because Romeo didn't want to fight. Romeo had to get revenge from Tybalt, so they got in a fight. Romeo won and Tybalt was dead. As a result for killing Tybalt Romeo was banished from Verona.

Quote: "I pray thee, good Mercutio, let's retire. the day is hot, the Capulets abroad, and, if we meet, we shall not 'scape a brawl, for now, these hot days, is the mad blood stirring."
(Speaker-Benvolio, Act 3 Scene 1, lines 1-4)
"Under love's heavy burden do I sink." Act I Scene iv line 22
Romeo is one of
the main characters
in the play. He is
the son of Montague.
He is very impulsive
and makes rash decisions
about his love for Juliet.
"What's in a
name? That which
we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Act II Scene ii Line 43-44
Juliet is another main character
in the play. She is the daughter
of Capulet. Juliet, like Romeo,
makes impulsive decisions
about her love for her
family's enemy.
Defining Moment #3
(Romeo & Juliet Die)
The impulsive actions taken by Romeo and Juliet eventually lead to death. Romeo finds Juliet asleep, but thinks she is dead (he didn't receive the explanation letter from the messenger). He then poisons himself because he sees no other reason to live. Once Juliet wakes up she finds Romeo dead, and then kills herself. This changes the play because it brings the two families together. This tragic event settles all feud between the two families.

Quote: "As rich shall Romeo's by his lady's lie--poor sacrifices of enmity!"
(Speaker-Capulet, Act 5 Scene 3, lines 303-304)
