The first quote that proves Juliet is impatient is found in Act 2, scene 2 during the balcony scene.  After she tells Romeo not to swear his love on the moon because it is not constant, she decides that the best wasy for him to swear his love to her would be to marry her.  Juliet reveals this when she says,

     "If that thy bent of love be honourable,
     Thy purpose marriage, send me word to-morrow,
     By one that I'll procure to come to thee,
     Where and what time thou wilt perform the rite;"  (A. 2, s. 2, lines 149-152)

The second time that she proves her impatience is when she is awaiting the Nurse's arrival with information on her wedding with Romeo.   Juliet states,

     "The clock struck nine when I did send the nurse;
      In half an hour she promis'd to return.
      Perchance she cannot meet him. That's not so..."  (A.2, s. 5, lines 1-3)

She continues this impatience throughout the first 17 lines of the play.
