In act I scene IV Romeo is about to enter the masquerade ball thrown by Juliet's family. he does not want to enter, as he is depressed over another girl, as he has yet to meet Juliet. Romeo wants to go home, rather than go into the party and says, "I'll be a candle-holder and look on,--
The game was ne'er so fair, and I am done." He wants to hold the light, not to dance. THis, of course, swiftly changes after he meets Juliet.
