LADY CAPULET: He speaks not the truth! Some twenty Montagues fought in this black riot, and all those twenty could kill only one man. I beg for justice, which you, prince, must give. Romeo slew Tybalt! Romeo must die!
PRINCE ESCALUS: Romeo killed Tybalt. Tybalt killed Mercutio. Who should now pay the price for Mercutio's life?
MONTAGUE: Not Romeo, prince! Mercutio was Romeo's friend. His crime was an act of justice!
PRINCE ESCALUS: And for that crime, Romeo is hereby exiled from Verona.
Now I'm involved in your hateful rivalry—my kinsman's blood has been shed by your brawls. I'll punish you so harshly, you will regret causing me this loss.
I will be deaf to pleas and excuses. No tears or prayers will free you from trouble, so use none.
Tell Romeo to leave Verona immediately. If he is found, he will be killed.
Take away this body and enact my will.
Mercy is like murder when we pardon those who kill.
