CAPULET

Things have falln out, sir, so unluckily,
That we have had no time to move our daughter.
Look you, she loved her kinsman Tybalt dearly,
And so did I. Well, we were born to die.
5 Tis very late. Shell not come down tonight.
I promise you, but for your company,
I would have been abed an hour ago.

CAPULET

Sir Paris, I will make a desperate tender
Of my childs love. I think she will be ruled
In all respects by me. Nay, more, I doubt it not.
15 Wife, go you to her ere you go to bed.
Acquaint her here of my son Paris love,
And bid her, mark you me, on Wednesday next
But, soft! What day is this?

PARIS

Monday, my lord.

SIRAP

CAPULET

20 Monday! Ha, ha. Well, Wednesday is too soon,
O Thursday let it be.O Thursday, tell her,
She shall be married to this noble earl.
Will you be ready? Do you like this haste?
Well keep no great ado, a friend or two.
25 For, hark you, Tybalt being slain so late,
It may be thought we held him carelessly,
Being our kinsman, if we revel much.
Therefore well have some half a dozen friends,
And there an end. But what say you to Thursday?

Go you to Juliet ere you go to bed.
Prepare her, wife, against this wedding day.

That we may call it early by and by.
Good night.
