In Act II, Scene I, Romeo, Benvolio and Mercutio are making their way out of the party. Romeo is still reeling from the news that his love, Juliet is a Capulet. Despite this new knowledge, Romeo is still determined to find Juliet and speak with her again. All remaining feelings for Rosaline have disappeared and all Romeo wants to do is find his new love.

Abandoning his friends, Romeo scales a wall and falls in the orchard of the Capulets. Benvolio and Mercutio follow behind and Romeo hides until they leave. It is at this moment that Juliet appears in the window. This is perhaps the most well known scene in the play.

Juliet carries on a conversation with herself, not knowing that Romeo is just a few steps from her. He soon reveals himself to her and Juliet warns him that if he is found, he would be killed. This is of no matter to Romeo and he stays, professing his love to her until Nurse comes calling for Juliet.

Juliet leaves Romeo with a kiss and a promise that she will send someone to him the next day to see if he plans to make good on his intentions to marry her. Romeo leaves to find the Friar.

Romeo escapes from Mercutio hoping to find Juliet . Romeo jumps over a wall and he so happens to see Juliet on her balcony , which leads to the famous balcony scene .
