The balcony scene provides an exchange between Romeo and Juliet, (Act two scene two)

How cam'st thou hither, tell me, and wherefore?

The orchard walls are high and hard to climb,

And the place death, considering who thou art,

If any of my kinsmen find thee here.


With love's light wings did I o'erperch these walls, (70)

For stony limits cannot hold love out,

And what love can do, that dares love attempt:

Therefore thy kinsmen are no stop to me.


If they do see thee, they will murder thee.


Alack, there lies more peril in thine eye (75)

Than twenty of their swords. Look thou but sweet

And I am proof against their enmity.


I would not for the world they saw thee here.


I have night's cloak to hide me from their eyes,

And, but thou love me, let them find me here; (80)

My life were better ended by their hate

Than death prorogued, wanting of thy love.


By whose direction found'st thou out this place?

Tybalt showdown with Romeo: (Act 3 scene 1)


Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries

That thou hast done me; therefore turn and draw.


I do protest, I never injured thee,

But love thee better than thou canst devise,

Till thou shalt know the reason of my love:

And so, good Capulet,--which name I tender

As dearly as my own,--be satisfied.
