How Romeo & Juliet should have ended (Act II, sc. ii):
JULIET: O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.
* * *
ROMEO: I take thee at thy word:
Call me but love, and I’ll be new baptized;
Henceforth I never will be Romeo.
JULIET: What man art thou that thus bescreen’d in night
So stumblest on my counsel? Thou clodpole.
Get thee gone, and no pleas or blubbering.
Else I call Tybalt, that thou mayst judge aright
If ’tis true mine eye exceeds in peril
My kinsman’s sword.
