Mercutio is a colorful, sexually-minded fellow, who prefers transient lust over committed love, unlike Romeo who falls head over heels in love at the drop of a hat. However, as his speech continues, Mercutio portrays a level of intensity that Romeo lacks. Queen Mab is a rather vicious figure who forces sexuality upon women in a largely unpleasant and violent way. While he shares this story, Mercutio's tone becomes so passionate that Romeo must forcefully quieten him.
