ACT IV - SCENE II. Hall in Capulet's house.
CAPULET
1    So many guests invite as here are writ.
Exit First Servant
2    Sirrah, go hire me twenty cunning cooks.
Second Servant
3    You shall have none ill, sir; for I'll try if they
4    can lick their fingers.
CAPULET
5    How canst thou try them so?
Second Servant
6    Marry, sir, 'tis an ill cook that cannot lick his
7    own fingers: therefore he that cannot lick his
8    fingers goes not with me.
CAPULET
9    Go, be gone.
Exit Second Servant
10   We shall be much unfurnished for this time.
11   What, is my daughter gone to Friar Laurence?
Nurse
12   Ay, forsooth.
CAPULET
13   Well, he may chance to do some good on her:
14   A peevish self-will'd harlotry it is.
Nurse
15   See where she comes from shrift with merry look.
Enter JULIET

CAPULET
16   How now, my headstrong! where have you been gadding?
JULIET
17   Where I have learn'd me to repent the sin
18   Of disobedient opposition
19   To you and your behests, and am enjoin'd
20   By holy Laurence to fall prostrate here,
21   And beg your pardon: pardon, I beseech you!
22   Henceforward I am ever ruled by you.
CAPULET
23   Send for the county; go tell him of this:
24   I'll have this knot knit up to-morrow morning.
JULIET
25   I met the youthful lord at Laurence' cell;
26   And gave him what becomed love I might,
27   Not step o'er the bounds of modesty.
CAPULET
28   Why, I am glad on't; this is well: stand up:
29   This is as't should be. Let me see the county;
30   Ay, marry, go, I say, and fetch him hither.
31   Now, afore God! this reverend holy friar,
32   Our whole city is much bound to him.
JULIET
33   Nurse, will you go with me into my closet,
34   To help me sort such needful ornaments
35   As you think fit to furnish me to-morrow?
LADY CAPULET
36   No, not till Thursday; there is time enough.
CAPULET
37   Go, nurse, go with her: we'll to church to-morrow.
Exeunt JULIET and Nurse

LADY CAPULET
38   We shall be short in our provision:
39   'Tis now near night.
CAPULET
40   Tush, I will stir about,
41   And all things shall be well, I warrant thee, wife:
42   Go thou to Juliet, help to deck up her;
43   I'll not to bed to-night; let me alone;
44   I'll play the housewife for this once. What, ho!
45   They are all forth. Well, I will walk myself
46   To County Paris, to prepare him up
47   Against to-morrow: my heart is wondrous light,
48   Since this same wayward girl is so reclaim'd.
Exeunt
