Narrator: Capulet and Lady Capulet have arranged this party
so that Juliet can meet Count Paris.
Capulet: Welcome, guests! Let everyone dance!
Narrator: Romeo, Benvolio, and Mercutio arrive among the guests.
Romeo: Who is that girl standing with that man over there?
Servant: I don't know.
Romeo: She is so beautiful!
Maybe I should try to meet her.
Tybalt: This guy sounds like a Montague!
What's he doing here?
Servant, bring me my sword!
Capulet: What makes you so angry, nephew?
Tybalt: He insults us by coming to our party!
Capulet: Calm yourself. It's the Montague boy Romeo, isn't it?
Tybalt: That bad boy Romeo, himself!
Capulet: Well, he's behaving himself.
Why spoil our party? Let him alone.
Tybalt: Uncle, why should we put up with it?
Capulet: You'll cause a riot and get us all sent to jail.
Be a man and be patient!
Tybalt: It's hard to be angry and patient, but I'll be patient for now.
They can have their fun, but I'll make them regret it.
Narrator: So Tybalt leaves, bearing his grudge,
and Romeo goes to meet Juliet.
Romeo: It embarrasses me to offer my rough hand to one so beautiful as yourself.
Juliet: Your hand is not so rough that I mind our hands' meeting.
Romeo: My lips would be very happy if they could meet your hand as well.
Juliet: I guess my hand wouldn't think it was a crime.
You are quite a gentleman.
Nurse: Your mother wants to speak with you.
Narrator: So Juliet leaves.
Romeo: Who is her mother?
Nurse: Her mother is the lady of the house.
Romeo: She is a Capulet! I've lost my heart to the enemy!
Benvolio: Romeo, let's leave before anything bad happens.
Romeo: Something bad has already happened!
Narrator: Romeo leaves ahead of Benvolio and Mercutio.
Juliet: Who was the boy that would not dance?
Nurse: I'll find out.
Juliet: I hope he's not married!
Nurse: He is the Montague boy, Romeo.
Juliet: I wish I had known who he was before I met him.
I think I'm in love with my enemy.
Nurse: Watch what you say!
