Nurse to Juliet.
Scene --Verona; Mantua. Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. Scene I. A public place. Enter Sampson and Gregory with swords and bucklers of the house of Capulet.
No, for then we should be colliers. Ay, while you live, draw your neck out of collar. I strike quickly, being moved. But thou art not quickly moved to strike. A dog of the house of Montague moves me. To move is to stir, and to be valiant is to stand. A dog of that house shall move me to stand. That shows thee a weak slave; for the weakest goes to the wall. The quarrel is between our masters and us their men. I will show myself a tyrant. When I have fought with the men, I will be cruel with the maids- I will cut off their heads.
The heads of the maids? Ay, the heads of the maids, or their maidenheads. Take it in what sense thou wilt. They must take it in sense that feel it. Draw thy tool! Here comes two of the house of Montagues. Enter two other Servingmen [Abram and Balthasar]. My naked weapon is out. I will back thee. Fear me not. No, marry. I fear thee! Let us take the law of our sides; let them begin.
I will frown as I pass by, and let them take it as they list. Nay, as they dare. I will bite my thumb at them; which is disgrace to them, if they bear it.
Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?
I do bite my thumb, sir. No, sir, I do not bite my thumb at you, sir; but I bite my thumb, sir. Do you quarrel, sir? Quarrel, sir?
No, sir. But if you do, sir, am for you. I serve as good a man as you. No better. Well, sir. Enter Benvolio. Yes, better, sir.
You lie. Draw, if you be men. Gregory, remember thy swashing blow. They fight. Part, fools! You know not what you do. Enter Tybalt. What, art thou drawn among these heartless hinds? Turn thee Benvolio! I do but keep the peace. Put up thy sword, Or manage it to part these men with me. What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee.
Have at thee, coward! Enter an officer, and three or four Citizens with clubs or partisans. Clubs, bills, and partisans! Down with the Capulets! Down with the Montagues! Enter Old Capulet in his gown, and his Wife. What noise is this? Give me my long sword, ho! A crutch, a crutch! Why call you for a sword? My sword, I say! Old Montague is come And flourishes his blade in spite of me.
Enter Old Montague and his Wife. Thou villain Capulet! Thou shalt not stir one foot to seek a foe. Enter Prince Escalus, with his Train. Rebellious subjects, enemies to peace, Profaners of this neighbour-stained steel- Will they not hear? What, ho! On pain of torture, from those bloody hands Throw your mistempered weapons to the ground And hear the sentence of your moved Prince. If ever you disturb our streets again, Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace. For this time all the rest depart away.
You, Capulet, shall go along with me; And, Montague, come you this afternoon, To know our farther pleasure in this case, To old Freetown, our common judgment place. Once more, on pain of death, all men depart. Exeunt [all but Montague, his Wife, and Benvolio]. Who set this ancient quarrel new abroach? Speak, nephew, were you by when it began? Here were the servants of your adversary And yours, close fighting ere I did approach. I drew to part them.
While we were interchanging thrusts and blows, Came more and more, and fought on part and part, Till the Prince came, who parted either part. O, where is Romeo? Saw you him to-day? Right glad I am he was not at this fray. Towards him I made; but he was ware of me And stole into the covert of the wood. Black and portentous must this humour prove Unless good counsel may the cause remove. My noble uncle, do you know the cause?
Could we but learn from whence his sorrows grow, We would as willingly give cure as know. Enter Romeo. About The Book. About The Author. William Shakespeare. Product Details. Resources and Downloads. Romeo and Juliet eBook Get a FREE e-book by joining our mailing list today!
