ROMEO: Should we prepare a speech to explain why we've come? Or should we enter without apologizing?
BENVOLIO: Long introductions are long out of fashion. Our performance needs no such prologue. We won't deliver speeches like some costumed acting troupe.
Let them judge us however they wish. We'll dance them a dance and be gone.
ROMEO: Give me a torch. I don't want to dance. My heart is heavy, so let me just carry the light.
MERCUTIO: No, noble Romeo, we must have you dance.
ROMEO: Not I, believe me. You have dancing shoes with nimble soles. I have a soul of lead that stakes me to the ground.
MERCUTIO: You're a lover! Borrow Cupid's wings and use them to soar above the common man.
