The nurse concedes that perhaps Paris is a better choice than Romeo for marriage. The Nurse sees the writing on the wall: if Juliet does not marry Paris, she will be disowned by her father. The Nurse promises to find Romeo – whom she knows is hiding with Friar Laurence - and bring him to Juliet's bed that night. Juliet gives the Nurse a ring for Romeo to wear when he comes to see her. This helps set up the final tragedy of the play.
