Juliet is calling for Romeo from the balcony and he's actually right under it!

Okay, I looked it up in my ginormous Shakespeeare book from university. Lines can very a little depending what you have but mine is Act 2 scene 1 line 35.

In Act 2 scene 4, Benvolio and Mercutio are talking to Romeo. While they speak, Juliet's nurse arrives to the sniggering Benvolio and Mercutio (they disrespectfully make fun of her size). Unfortunately, no one knows that she is Juliet's Nurse, or that she is actually there to talk to Romeo about him and Juliet.
