Narrator

Narrator: So tell us about how it really was.
Romeo: Certainly. It’s about time somebody set the record straight.
Juliet: (Menacingly) Meaning what exactly, my love?
Friar: Steady! We don’t want any more blood spilt.
Mercutio: We certainly don’t! Whoever heard of coming to blows, over such nonsense?
Tybalt: I agree. I was nothing like the hot-head I was described as being. I reckon Mercutio and I could have settled our differences quite amicably - certainly without resorting to violence.
Friar: And now you come to mention it, I certainly had better things to do with my time than getting involved in teenage love, and all its complications.
Romeo: Love? Huh - a much over-used term!
Juliet: Meaning precisely what, dearest? Me thinks you speak not from your heart!
Mercutio: And what heart would that be? As his best friend, me thinks I knew him somewhat better than you, my lady!
Narrator: Whoa! Slow down! Do I detect treachery from within the Montague camp?
Tybalt: (Incredulously) Don’t tell me you had a thing for Juliet too, Mercutio?
Friar: (Sighing) What was I just saying about complicated teenage love?
Mercutio: Well, at least I would have offered Juliet the genuine thing!
Juliet: Mercutio! What are you talking about? Romeo - why so quiet, my love?
Mercutio: Tell her, Romeo! If you’ve any heart to speak of, tell your true love just how false you were!
Narrator: We’re waiting, Romeo.
Romeo: OK. OK. Keep your hair on!
Friar (Coughing) I would …. If I had any!
Romeo: Sorry, Father. No offence intended! Now, if we all stay calm …
Juliet: (Shrieking) Well, I for one will not! What are you saying, Mercutio? That Romeo didn’t love me?
Romeo: At last! She’s caught on!
Juliet: But, but ….. What about when you professed undying love to me, as I stood on my balcony?
Tybalt: (Sighing) Oh, that old routine! One of his favourites - never failed!
