The nurse plays some further comic relief with Juliet. She withholds her information in order to lament her old age,

"I am tired. Leave me alone for a minute. Oh my, my bones ache so much. I’ve been running all over the place."

She skips most of Mercutio's mocking and gets to what Juliet longs to here. The Nurse seeks to please Juliet and help her in a rather dangerous endeavor to be with Romeo.
