Scene IV

Capylet’ House

Enter Lady Capulet and Nurse.

LADY:
Hold, take these keys and fetch more spices, Nurse.
NURSE:
They call for dates and quinces in the pastry.

Enter Capulet.

CAP:
Come, stir, stir, stir! The second cock hath crow'd,
The curfew bell hath rung, 'tis three o'clock.
Look to the bak'd meats, good Angelica;(5)
Spare not for cost.
NURSE:
Go, you cot-quean, go,
Get you to bed! Faith, you'll be sick to-morrow
For this night's watching.
CAP:
No, not a whit. What, I have watch'd ere now(10)
All night for lesser cause, and ne'er been sick.
LADY:
Ay, you have been a mouse-hunt in your time;
But I will watch you from such watching now.

Exeunt Lady and Nurse.

CAP:
A jealous hood, a jealous hood!
Now, fellow, what is there?(15)

Enter three or four servingmen, with spits and logs and baskets.

FIRST SERVANT:
Things for the cook, sir; but I know not
what.
CAP:
Make haste, make haste. Exit First Servant. Sirrah,
fetch drier logs.
Call Peter; he will show thee where they are.(20)
SECOND SERVANT:
I have a head, sir, that will find out logs
And never trouble Peter for the matter.

Exit Second Servant.

CAP:
Mass, and well said; a merry whoreson, ha!
Thou shalt be loggerhead.Good faith,'tis day.
The County will be here with music straight,(25)
For so he said he would.

Play of music.

I hear him near.
Nurse! Wife! What, ho! What, nurse, I say!

Enter Nurse.

Go waken Juliet; go and trim her up.
I'll go and chat with Paris. Hie, make haste,(30)
Make haste! The bridegroom he is come already:
Make haste, I say.

Exeunt.
