  4. And so did I. Well, we were born to die.
  5. ’Tis very late, she’ll not come down tonight.
  6. I promise you, but for your company,
  7. I would have been a-bed an hour ago.

Paris

  2. Madam, good night, commend me to your daughter.

Lady Capulet

  2. Tonight she’s mewed up to her heaviness.

  1. Sir Paris, I will make a desperate tender
  2. Of my child’s love. I think she will be rul’d
  3. In all respects by me; nay more, I doubt it not.
  4. Wife, go you to her ere you go to bed,
  5. Acquaint her here of my son Paris’ love,
  6. And bid hermark you me?—on We’n’sday next

  2. A’ Thursday let it bea’ Thursday, tell her,
  3. She shall be married to this noble earl.
  4. Will you be ready? Do you like this haste?
  5. We’ll keep no great adoa friend or two,
  6. For hark you, Tybalt being slain so late,
  7. It may be thought we held him carelessly,
  8. Being our kinsman, if we revel much:
  9. Therefore we’ll have some half a dozen friends,
  10. And there an end. But what say you to Thursday?

Paris

  2. Go you to Juliet ere you go to bed,
  3. Prepare her, wife, against this wedding-day.
  4. Farewell, my lord. Light to my chamber ho!
  5. Afore me, it is so very late that we
  6. May call it early by and by. Good night.
