Important Quotes

“Goodnight, Goodnight!  Parting is such sweet sorrow That I shall say goodnight till it be morrow.”

“O Romeo, O Romeo!  Wherefore art thou Romeo?  Deny thy father and refuse thy name.”

“What’s in a name?  That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet!”

In the rest of Act II today we see that the Friar is happy to marry Romeo and Juliet at his cell (room).  Why is he so happy that they get married?

As we start Act III we get to the climax of the play.  Mercutio is killed as Romeo tries to break up a fight between him and Tybalt.  Romeo then slays Tybalt and screams, “I am fortune’s fool!”  because fate has chosen him.  The Friar warned about these kinds of things when he said, “These violent delights have violent ends.”  Those Act III quotes will be important for upcoming tests.

We also saw some comic relief (it’s in your notes) today as Mercutio is cracking jokes while he’s bleeding to death.  “Tomorrow you shall find me a grave man!”  (Nice pun with grave!)
