When Juliet and Romeo first met, it was at the capulet household on the night of a party. His friends were there to crash the party, but Romeo came for Rosaline. When the servant asked them for assistance and Romeo saw Rosaline's name on the list he knew he needed to go. Romeo did not plan on meeting Juliet there. It was truly love at first sight. Right when Romeo saw her he forgot about Rosaline immediately. He felt the need to be near her, to touch her, and that is what he did. Closer to the end of the gathering he snuck off with Juliet to an exclusive corner. He only received a few minutes of privacy, before the party ended, and he had to leave. There was only time to get her name and steal a few kisses. Once he left Juliet was told by the nurse that they were enemies even though they had never met until then. Of course, he had to be a Montague. She knew it was all too good to be true. Even though she was having bad feelings about the relationship, she went through with it anyway. During this scene I felt that it gave a good picture of what the clothing looked like. There was a variety of young peoples clothing to older peoples clothing. (N/A) The previous night they spoke on the balcony about marriage plans. Even though they had only met that night, they believed that they were meant for eachother. The Nurse was appointed their messenger, because they are not allowed to be seen together. She was sent to talk to Romeo about the marriage plans. Her job was to gather the information, and bring it back to Juliet. When the Nurse first meets Romeo, she is a little shaky about letting Juliet marry him, but after talking to him she feels that he is worthy to marry her. They make a plan about how they will get away with the secret marriage. The plan was that they were going to go to Friar Lawrence's cell to get married. Romeo was going give the nurse a tackled stair, or ladder, to let down on the balcony so that he will climb up and sleep with Juliet that night. Juliet was waiting impatiently at the house while all of this was going on. When the nurse arrived, Juliet was jump up and down with excitement.
