JULIET

Give me, give me! O, tell not me of fear!

JULIET

Give me the vial. Give it to me! Don’t talk to me about fear.

FRIAR LAWRENCE

125 (gives her a vial)
Hold. Get you gone. Be strong and prosperous
In this resolve. I’ll send a friar with speed
To Mantua with my letters to thy lord.

FRIAR LAWRENCE

(giving her the vial) Now go along on your way. Be strong and successful in this decision. I’ll send a friar quickly to Mantua with my letter for Romeo.

JULIET

Love give me strength, and strength shall help afford.
130Farewell, dear Father.

JULIET

Love will give me strength, and strength will help me accomplish this plan. Goodbye, dear Father.
Exeunt, separately
They exit separately.
