CAPULET: Go, be gone. (Exit Second Servant) We shall be much unfurnished for this time. What, is my daughter gone to Friar Laurence? NURSE: Ay, forsooth. CAPULET: Well, he may chance to do some good on her: A peevish self-will’d harlotry it is. NURSE: See where she comes from shrift with merry look. (Enter JULIET) CAPULET: How now, my headstrong! where have you been gadding? JULIET: Where I have learn’d me to repent the sin Of disobedient opposition To you and your behests, and am enjoin’d By holy Laurence to fall prostrate here, And beg your pardon: pardon, I beseech you! Henceforward I am ever ruled by you. CAPULET: Send for the county; go tell him of this: I’ll have this knot knit up to-morrow morning. JULIET: I met the youthful lord at Laurence’ cell; And gave him what becomed love I might, Not step o’er the bounds of modesty. CAPULET: Why, I am glad on’t; this is well: stand up: This is as’t should be. Let me see the county; Ay, marry, go, I say, and fetch him hither. Now, afore God! this reverend holy friar, Our whole city is much bound to him. JULIET: Nurse, will you go with me into my closet, To help me sort such needful ornaments As you think fit to furnish me to-morrow? LADY CAPULET: No, not till Thursday; there is time enough. CAPULET: Go, nurse, go with her: we’ll to church to-morrow.
