The Nurse is a trusted member of the Capulet household, having worked in it for the entirety of Juliet's life. In fact, she nursed Juliet, and, in keeping with the intimacy created by breastfeeding, enjoys a close bond, one that far surpasses the role of lady-in-waiting. With Lady Capulet Juliet converses in a formal, even stiff manner, addressing her as 'Madam'. The Nurse, however, she treats as a kind of mother figure, a friend, confidant, and finally, co-conspirator in her affaire de coeur with Romeo. In this, especially as she arranges Juliet's last night and nuptials with Romeo, the Nurse is even willing to betray her employer for the sake of the girl's happiness. It is only after Romeo's exile from Verona that the Nurse blunders, counselling Juliet to renounce her marital bond with Romeo to marry Paris. Thereafter, Juliet no longer confides in her. At the end of the play we are left with a parody of the once genial and humorous nurse nonsensically speaking about sex as she tries to waken the drugged Juliet.
