I really like how they translated the quotes into modern day time.

This site is wonderful but it doesn't point out some literary elements I think it should such as dramatic irony. In Act IV Scene I one of the first occurrences of dramatic irony is that Paris believes Juliet is weeping over Tybalt's death but she is weeping over Romeo which the audience knows.
It would be nice to have dramatic irony's pointed out a little!

My friend Brian Smithington is hungry and he has ordered YOU to make him a snack. NOW GO TO YOUR PANTRY AND GET A SNACK FOR HIM. OR ELSE... Preferably a sandwich with cheese.
