- Sunday evening
Outside Capulets house
Benvolio and Mercurio get Romeo to come to the masquerade with them. Romeo and Mercurio talk about dreams, because they have different opinions. Romeo believes that dreams are real, and Mercurio thinks they are all lies. Romeo has had a dream about god showing him the path to his death, and that everything happens for a reason.
Quote: By some vile forfeit of untimely death. But he hath the steerage of my course direct my sail!
