Mercutio accuses him of being cautious one moment and irrtional the next. 

Thou art like one of those fellows that, when he enters the confines of a tavern, claps me his sword upon the table and says “God send me no need of thee!” and, by the operation of the second cup, draws it on the drawer when indeed there is no need."

He also accuses him of having a hot temper. 

"Come, come, thou art as hot a Jack in thy mood as any in Italy, and as soon moved to be moody, and as soon moody to be moved."

Lastly, he tells him that if there were two Benvolio's it wouldn't last long because one would kiil the other. 

"Nay, an there were two such, we should have none shortly, for one would kill the other."
