Romeo and Juliet

Mercutio thou art like one of those fellows that when he enters the confines of a tavern, claps me his sword upon the table and says, “God send me no need of thee” and, by the operation of the second cup, draws him on the drawer when indeed there is no need”.
Tybalt Mercutio, thou consortest with Romeo?
Tybalt Romeo, the love i bear thee can afford no better term than this: thou art a villain.
Romeo Tybalt the reason I have to love thee doth much excuse the appertaining rage to such a greeting. Villain am i none. Therefore farewell. I see thou knowest me not.
Romeo I do protest I never injured thee, but love thee better than thou canst devise, Till thou shalt know the reason my love, and so , good capulet, which name i tender as dearly as mine own, be satisfied.
Mercutio Ay ay a scratch a scratch
Mercutio No! tis not so deep as a well nor as wide as a church door but tis enough… I was hurt under your arm.
Mercutio A plague o both your houses, they have made worm’s meat of me. I have it, and soundly to your houses.
Romeo In my behalf my reputation stained with tybalts slander- tybalt that at hour hath been my cousin! O sweet juliet, thy beauty hath made me effimiate, and in my temper softened sweet valor…. This but begins the woe others must end.
Romeo Either thou or I must join him. (talking to tybalt)

Prince Romeo slew him, he slew mercutio. Who now the price of his dear blood doth owe?
Prince Immediately we do exile him hence. I have an interest in your heart’s proceeding: my blood for your rude brawls doth lie a-bleeding… Else when he is found, that hour is his last.
Prince Mercy but murders, pardoning those that kill.

Capulet Sir Paris, i will make desperate tender of my child’s love. I think she will be ruled in all respects by me… oh thursday let it be!
Paris My lord, i would that thursday were tomorrow.
