    SCENE IV. Hall in Capulet's house.

    Enter LADY CAPULET and Nurse
    Hold, take these keys, and fetch more spices, nurse.

    They call for dates and quinces in the pastry.

    Enter CAPULET

    Come, stir, stir, stir! the second cock hath crow'd,
    The curfew-bell hath rung, 'tis three o'clock:
    Look to the baked meats, good Angelica:
    Spare not for the cost.

    Go, you cot-quean, go,
    Get you to bed; faith, You'll be sick to-morrow
    For this night's watching.

    No, not a whit: what! I have watch'd ere now
    All night for lesser cause, and ne'er been sick.

    Ay, you have been a mouse-hunt in your time;
    But I will watch you from such watching now.

    Exeunt LADY CAPULET and Nurse

    A jealous hood, a jealous hood!

    Enter three or four Servingmen, with spits, logs, and baskets

    Now, fellow,
    What's there?

    First Servant
    Things for the cook, sir; but I know not what.

    Make haste, make haste.

    Exit First Servant

    Sirrah, fetch drier logs:
    Call Peter, he will show thee where they are.

    Second Servant
    I have a head, sir, that will find out logs,
    And never trouble Peter for the matter.


    Mass, and well said; a merry whoreson, ha!
    Thou shalt be logger-head. Good faith, 'tis day:
    The county will be here with music straight,
    For so he said he would: I hear him near.

    Music within

    Nurse! Wife! What, ho! What, nurse, I say!

    Re-enter Nurse

    Go waken Juliet, go and trim her up;
    I'll go and chat with Paris: hie, make haste,
    Make haste; the bridegroom he is come already:
    Make haste, I say.
