Act 2, Scene IV

Location: A Street in Verona

Time: Monday Midday

Characters: Mercutio, Benvolio, Romeo, Peter and Nurse.

Benvolio and Mercutio are wondering where Romeo is, and where he went the last night. Romeo arrives and he and Mercutio have some good banter. They make some jokes about each other’s sexual organs and the length of them. Eventually, the Nurse arrives with Peter and all the Montague’s make jokes about her physical appearance. In this scene, it really shows the strong relationship between Romeo and Mercutio and I think Shakespeare will write something that will pull them apart a little bit.
