Romeo and Juliet Act 2 Scene 4

Mercutio notes that Romeo seems to be missing
Mercutio, at this time, is still going under the false pretense that Romeo is still trying for Rosaline
Mercutio and Benvolio note a letter from Tybalt, and Mercutio wants to accept the challenge himself, most likely
Mercutio believes that, based off the current state Romeo is in, he will be unable to properly fight Tybalt.
Tybalt is compared to the Prince of Cats, tougher even. He speaks about Tybalt’s impressive ability.
Mercutio, throughout the rest, continuously compliments Tybalt.
Mercutio notes, that as Romeo arrives, he looks skinny and just teases him.
Mercutio notes that it is better to do what rather than obsess over love as Romeo did? Joke around, be sociable, and have fun.
Mercutio and Benvolio act how towards the nurse as she arrives They tease her, a lot.
An he speak any thing against me, I’ll take him down, an he were lustier than he is, and twenty such Jacks. And if I cannot, I’ll find those that shall. Scurvy knave! I am none of his flirt-gills. I am none of his skains-mates. (to PETER) And thou must stand by, too, and suffer every knave to use me at his pleasure? Nurse is clearly pissed off that Mercutio was talking crap.
Peter pretends that he didn’t see anyone teasing the nurse.
Now, afore God, I am so vexed that every part about me quivers. Scurvy knave!(to ROMEO) Pray you, sir, a word. And as I told you, my young lady bid me inquire you out. What she bade me say, I will keep to myself. But first let me tell ye, if ye should lead her into a fool’s paradise, as they say, it were a very gross kind of behavior, as they say. For the gentlewoman is young, and therefore, if you should deal double with her, truly it were an ill thing to be offered to any gentlewoman, and very weak dealing. The nurse is really angry at what just happened. Regardless, he speaks to Romeo, passing on Juliet’s message. He reassures her that Juliet is still a young, good girl, and would be terrible if Romeo were to be pranking her.
Romeo “protests” to the nurse’s false ideas about him.
Romeo’s plan is to climb over the wall using a rope ladder
