Benvolio says that they will be masked. They will just slip into the party without any speeches, dance, and then leave.

The date is out of such prolixity.

We’ll have no Cupid hoodwinked with a scarf, Bearing a Tartar’s painted bow of lath, Scaring the ladies like a crowkeeper, Nor no without-book prologue, faintly spoke After the prompter for our entrance. But let them measure us by what they will. We’ll measure them a measure and be gone.
