Awesome / Romeo and Juliet

Go To

Play

  • Mercutio: "Ask for me tomorrow, and you shall find me a grave man." His dying line is a pun! I should hope to die so well.
  • Friar Laurence's Get a Hold of Yourself, Man! speech to a hysterically suicidal Romeo in Act III Scene II; he reminds Romeo that he was lucky to be banished instead of punished by death, lucky to have killed Tybalt when Tybalt tried to kill him, and killing himself will essentially kill Juliet.

  • The awesomest part of the whole play:
  • Tybalt's "I AM FOR YOU" just before the fight with Mercutio was probably the most badass point in the whole play.
  • Mercutio's most (in)famous line: "A plague o' both your houses!" after his swordfight with Tybalt he shouldn't have died from.
  • This line, which may count as a Pre Ass Kicking One Liner:
    Tybalt: What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word, as I hate Hell, all Montagues, and thee. Have at thee, Coward!

  • The 1936 film features the only sword fight that Basil Rathbone got to win in his acting career, despite being a far more skilled fencer than many of his opponents.
