Capulet, Nurse and Lady Capulet are all in an argument with Juliet because Juliet does not want to marry Paris. Capulet says that if Juliet does not marry Paris on Thursday that he will banish her from his house. Juliet asks her mother to give her more time and her mother says to not talk to her about it. Capulet and Lady Capulet leave. Juliet asks Nurse for advice. Nurse tells Juliet to marry Paris because Romeo is as good as dead and they would have to see each other in secret. Juliet pretends that she likes the idea and tells Nurse that she is going to Friar Lawrences to confess her sins.
