In Act III, Scene 5 of "Romeo and Juliet", Juliet seeks comfort from the Nurse. What is the Nurse's advice?
In this scene, Juliet has been berated by her father after refusing Paris' offer of marriage. She is threatened with disownment, & turns to the nurse for advice and comfort. Instead, the Nurse tells her to forget Romeo, obey her parents, and marry Paris. This is the moment that makes Juliet independent, the moment when she must decide her fate. She lies to the nurse, telling her that she will go to the Friar's cell to confess and receive penance for her sins. In reality, she is turning to the Friar for help, since the Nurse already turned on her.
