The interview between the Nurse and Romeo appears in Act 2 Scene 3. The Nurse has been sent to see if he has scheduled a time to be married to Juliet. However, the Nurse is worried that Romeo is playing with Juliet's young and impressionable mind and feelings. Her concerns are evident when she says things like "if ye should lead her in a fool's paradise" (II.iii.148) and "if you should deal double with her" (II.iii.150) which both suggest that he could be fake with his intentions. He sets her at rest though when he affirms that he will marry Juliet that afternoon. Besides that, they did have a bit of miscommunication during the process of the interview which can also be viewed as comical.
