Romeo and Juliet: Act 4 Scene 4

Scene IV Hall in Capulet's house.

[Enter LADY CAPULET and Nurse]

LADY CAPULET
Hold, take these keys, and fetch more spices, nurse.

NURSE
They call for dates and quinces in the pastry.

[Enter CAPULET]

CAPULET
Come, stir, stir, stir! the second cock hath crow'd,
The curfew-bell hath rung, 'tis three o'clock:
Look to the baked meats, good Angelica:
Spare not for the cost.

NURSE
Go, you cot-quean, go,
Get you to bed; faith, You'll be sick to-morrow
For this night's watching.

CAPULET
No, not a whit: what! I have watch'd ere now
All night for lesser cause, and ne'er been sick.

LADY CAPULET
Ay, you have been a mouse-hunt in your time;
But I will watch you from such watching now.

[Exeunt LADY CAPULET and Nurse]

CAPULET
A jealous hood, a jealous hood!

[Enter three or four Servingmen, with spits, logs,
and baskets]

Now, fellow,
What's there?

SECOND SERVANT
Things for the cook, sir; but I know not what.

CAPULET
Make haste, make haste.

[Exit First Servant]

Sirrah, fetch drier logs:
Call Peter, he will show thee where they are.

SECOND SERVANT
I have a head, sir, that will find out logs,
And never trouble Peter for the matter.

[Exit]

CAPULET
Mass, and well said; a merry whoreson, ha!
Thou shalt be logger-head. Good faith, 'tis day:
The county will be here with music straight,
For so he said he would: I hear him near.

[Music within]

Nurse! Wife! What, ho! What, nurse, I say!

[Re-enter Nurse]

Go waken Juliet, go and trim her up;
I'll go and chat with Paris: hie, make haste,
Make haste; the bridegroom he is come already:
Make haste, I say.

[Exeunt]
