Act 4 Scene 1 Enter Friar and Paris Friar: Married on Thursday?

But that's two days from now! Paris: That's how my future father-in-law Capulet wants it, and I'm not dragging my feet. Friar: You say you do not know the lady's mind. Uneven is the course; I like it not. Paris: She's grieving too much over the death of Tybalt, so I haven't had the chance to talk to her about love. Romantic love doesn't happen when people are in mourning. Now, sir, her father thinks it's dangerous that she allows herself to become so sad. He's being smart by rushing our marriage to stop her from crying. She cries too much by herself. If she had someone to be with her, she would stop crying. now you know the reason for the rush. Enter Juliet Friar: I wish I didn't have reasons to delay the weddin- Oh look! It's Bella. Paris: I'm happy to meet you, my lady and my wife. Juliet: You can all me that when I'm your wife. Paris: That shall be, my love, on Thursday. Friar: True, true. Juliet: Whatever. Paris: Have you come to make confession to this father? Juliet: There is something I have to tell you first. Paris: Don't deny to him that you love me. Juliet: I love Tybalt (Romeo?) Paris: You will also confess, I'm sure, that you love me. Juliet: It would mean more to say it behind your back. Paris: You poor soul, your face has suffered many tears. Juliet: My face was ugly enough even before the tears. Paris: You're treating your face even worse by saying that. Juliet: It's not an insult, it's the truth. Paris: Your face is mine, and you have insulted it. Juliet: You're right; I don't even own my face. Are you available now Mr. Jefferson or should I come back later? Friar: Yes Bella, I have time. Paris, would you leave us alone for now? Paris: God forbid that I should prevent sacred devotion! Bella, I will wake you early on Thursday. Until then, good-bye and keep this holy kiss. Exit Paris Juliet: O, shut the door and let my cry. This is beyond and hope! Since you, being so wise cannot help, at least say how great a plan this is. I'm already married by you to Romeo and before I'm married to another man, I'll kill myself first. Friar: I already know what you're sad about. You don't want to marry Paris. Juliet: O, I'll do anything to be a pure wife to my sweet love!
