    CAPULET

    Come, stir, stir, stir! The second cock hath crowed.
    The curfew bell hath rung. 'Tis three o'clock.—
    5Look to the baked meats, good Angelica.
    Spare not for the cost.

    NURSE

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

    CAPULET

    No, not a whit, what. I have watched ere now
    10All night for lesser cause, and ne'er been sick.

    LADY CAPULET

    Ay, you have been a mouse-hunt in your time,
    But I will watch you from such watching now.
    Exeunt LADY CAPULET and NURSE

    CAPULET

    A jealous hood, a jealous hood!
    Enter three or four SERVINGMEN with spits and logs and baskets
         Now, fellow,
    What is there?
  • LADY CAPULET and the NURSE enter.

    LADY CAPULET

    Wait. Take these keys and get more spices, Nurse.

    NURSE

    They’re calling for dates and quinces in the pastry kitchen.
    CAPULET enters.

    CAPULET

    Come on, wake up, wake up, wake up! The second cock crowed. The curfew-bell rang. It’s three o'clock. Go get the baked meats, good Angelica. Don’t worry about the cost.

    NURSE

    Go, you old housewife, go. Go to bed, dear. You’ll be sick tomorrow because you’ve stayed up all night.

    CAPULET

    No, not at all. What? I’ve stayed up all night many times before for less important matters, and I’ve never gotten sick.

    LADY CAPULET

    Yes, you’ve been a ladies' man in your time. But I’ll make sure you don’t stay up any later now.
    LADY CAPULET and the NURSE exit.

    CAPULET

    A jealous woman, a jealous woman!
    Three or four SERVINGMEN enter with spits, logs, and baskets.
    Now, fellow, what have you got there?
