   Tush, I will stir about,
And all things shall be well, I warrant thee, wife.
Go thou to Juliet, help to deck up her.
40I’ll not to bed tonight. Let me alone.
I’ll play the housewife for this once.
CAPULET
Don’t worry, I will set things in motion. And everything will be alright, I promise you, wife. You should go to Juliet and dress her up. I’m not going to bed tonight. Leave me alone. I’ll pretend to be the housewife for once.

     —What, ho?
They are all forth?—Well, I will walk myself
To County Paris, to prepare him up
Against tomorrow. My heart is wondrous light
45Since this same wayward girl is so reclaimed.
Hey! What? They’re all gone? Well, I will walk by myself to Count Paris to get him ready for tomorrow. My heart is wonderfully happy because this troubled girl has been taken back and now will be married.
