In this scene, Juliet's mother and father have been talking to her, telling her that she is going to marry Paris and she is going to do it right away.  She has said she doesn't want to and her father has gotten really angry at her.  Her mother is not pleased either.

What Juliet tells her mother (her father has already stormed out of the room) is that she might as well just kill Juliet if she won't delay the marriage.  She says to just make her bridal bed be in the tomb next to Tybalt.
