Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet Act 4, Scene 3 Summary

  • Juliet convinces the Nurse and Lady Capulet to leave her alone, then takes out the potion the Friar gave her.
  • She worries for a brief moment that it might be real poison, and then freaks herself out by imagining what it'll be like to awake surrounded by a bunch of dead bodies, including the fresh corpse of her cousin Tybalt.
  • She drinks the potion, making sure to fall on to the bed instead of dropping awkwardly onto the floor.
