At the beginning of scene 3, what Is friar Laurence doing? He is picking herbs, flowers, plants in the basket. He is discussing poison properties of plants.
According to the friar, how are humans like plants? According to the friar humans are like plants by some are evil, some are good.

What time of day is it Noon
How long had the nurse been gone on her errand to find Romeo? The nurse has been gone on her errand to find romeo for three hours. The delay is driving Juliet crazy because the nurse said she would only be gone for a half hour.
What’s humorous about the way the nurse treats Juliet in this scene? It’s funny because The nurse is purposely stalling because she knows how anxious Juliet is to hear the news from Romeo. This scene is fun and cute.
Is Romeo fearful of the future? Write down the lines that support your answer Romeo is not afraid of the premonition he had in the dream mentioned at the end of act one scene four. These are the lines that prove this: “then love devouring death do what he dare/it is enough I may but call her mine.”
In your own words, explain the Friars warning in these lines:”these violent delights have violent ends -‘d in their triumph die like fire and powder, which, as they kiss, consume.” He is trying to say that loving quickly and sharply like this means that your love will end too quickly and sharply as well. This intense type of love could consume itself with its heat, like gunpowder is burned up by fire when they touch. The friar is trying to warn Romeo here to slow down and contain his love/passion.
In your own words, explain Friar’s message in these lines: “Therefore lover moderately; long love doth so: too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.” Again he wants Romeo to slow down a little bit so that his love with Juliet can be lasting love. When it comes to love. Falling too quickly in love, is just as bad as being too slow to act on your loving feelings. You have to time these things just right, if you want to build a love that will last a long time.

He is foreshadowing The fight scene that will happen between Mercutio and tybalt and Tybalt and Romeo.
What does Mercutio tell us about Benvolio in lines 15-27? Is it true? Explain what’s happening here. Mercutio is telling us benvolio fights so much that his head is fried and he is such a hothead he always wants to fight. This is not true because this describes Mercutio not Benvolio

O sweet Juliet, Thy beauty hath made me effeminate and in my temper soft’ned valor’s steel!” This is explaining why the prince shows mercy. Mercutio was the princes nephew so he exiled Romeo not executed him. Romeo has said his love for Juliet has made him womanly. Mercutio’s death is partially Romeo’s fault for not defending himself.
