SAMP:
Gregory, on my word, we will not be humiliated, like carrying coal.

GREG:
No, for that we should be coal miners.

SAMP:
I mean, if we are angry, we will draw our swords.

GREG:
Yeah, while you’re alive, you’ll only draw your neck out of the hangman’s collar.

SAMP:
I can hit quickly, if I’m motivated.

GREG:
But you’re not quickly motivated to hit.

SAMP:
A dog of the house ofMontague motivates me.

GREG:
To be motivated is to act, and to be valiant is to face the challenge;
When you are “motivated,” you run away.

SAMP:
A dog of that house will motivate me to face the challenge;
I will tear down the castle wall of any man or maid of Montague’s.

GREG:
That shows you are a weak slave, because the castle wall
is the weakest spot in the castle.

SAMP:
True; andthat’s why women, being so weak,
are always “thrust to the wall;” Watch me, I will push Montague’s men
from the castle wall, and thrust his maids to their “castle wall.”

GREG:
The feud is between our masters, and by extension, all their men.
GREG:
The feud is between our masters, and by extension, all their men.

SAMP:
Makes no difference. I will be a tyrant in battle;
when I have finishedfighting with the men, I will be cruel to the maids.
I will cut off their heads.

GREG:
You mean you’d cut off a woman’s head?

SAMP:
Yes, the heads of maids, or their virginity. Take it any way you like.

GREG:
It’s the maids who will feel what you mean, not take it.

SAMP:
They’ll feel me all right, as long as I can keep it up,
And everyone knows, I’m well endowed.

GREG:
It’s a goodthing you’re not a fish. If you were,
you’d be dried and salted! Draw your weapon-
Here come two guys from Montague’s house.

SAMP:
It’s out already! You pick a fight with them and I’ll back you up.

GREG:
You’ll back me up? How? By running away?

SAMP:
Don’t worry about me.

GREG:
Yeah right!

SAMP:
Let’s do this legally. Let them start with us.
GREG:
I’ll make a face at them. Let themtake it whatever way they will.

SAMP:
No, before they start, I’ll give them the finger, which is
a disgrace if they don’t respond.

ABR:
Did you just give us the finger, sir?

SAMP:
I did give the finger, sir.

ABR:
Did you give the finger to us, sir?

SAMP:
Is it legal if I say “Yes?”

GREG:
No.

SAMP:
No, sir, I did not give the finger to you, sir, but I did give the finger.GREG:
Are you picking a fight with us, sir?

ABR:
Fight, sir! No, sir.

SAMP:
But if you do fight, sir, then I will fight you. I work for as good a man as
you do.

ABR:
No better?

SAMP:
Well, sir.

GREG:
Say “better.” Here comes one of Capulet’s relatives.

SAMP:
Yes, better, sir.

ABR:
You’re a liar!

SAMP:
Draw your swords if you are men – Gregory, remember your best shot.

BEN:Break it up, you fools.
You don’t know what you’re doing!

TYB:
What, is your sword out among these stupid servants?
Turn to me, Benvolio, and see your death.

BEN:
I’m only trying to keep the peace. Put your sword away,
or use it to help me break up this fight.

TYB:
Are you kidding? Your sword is out and you talk about “peace?” I hate the word
as much as I hate hell, all the Montagues,and you! Fight me, coward!

CITIZENS:
Clubs, pikes, and more pikes! Strike! Beat them down!
Down with the Capulets! Down with the Montagues!

CAP:
What’s going on? Give me my long sword, hey!

WIFE:
You need a crutch, a crutch! Why do you want a sword!?

CAP:
My sword, I say! Old Montague is out there,
and waves his blade in spite of me.

MON:
You are a villain, Capulet! (to his wife)Don’t hold me back – Let me go!

M.WIFE:
You will not move one foot to fight!

PRINCE:
Rebellious subjects, enemies to peace.
Misusing your swords to kill your neighbors!
Won’t they listen to me? What! Hey! You men, you beasts,
That put out the fire of your evil anger
With dark red fountains of blood from your veins -
On pain of torture, from your bloody hands,
Throw your evil, misused weapons...
