Act 2 Scene 4
Mercutio and Benvolio are joking around in the streets of Verona when Romeo interrupts them. They chat about Tybalt sending a letter threatening Romeo to a fight, but Romeo isn’t up to the challenge as Tybalt is very accurate with his sword and Romeo would rather focus on his love for Juliet. The conversation is then intervened by a Capulet servant and the Nurse who has come on behalf of Juliet. She questions Romeo if he is up to being part of Juliet’s life and being trustworthy in their soon to be marriage. Romeo assures her he will treat Juliet with respect “warrant thee, my man’s as true as steel”.
