Romeo: Look, honey, don't you see the sun rising in the east? The stars are fading and the sun has almost risen. I wish I could stay with you. But right now, its leave or die.

Romeo: Nooooo... Of course! Then one day, we will be able to laugh about this whole thing. You'll see.

Juliet: I don't feel too good about all this. I...
