Tybalt. What, drawn, and talk of peace! I hate the word,
As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee:
Have at thee, coward!
[They fight]
[Enter, several of both houses, who join the fray;
then enter Citizens, with clubs]

First Citizen. Clubs, bills, and partisans! strike! beat them down!
Down with the Capulets! down with the Montagues!



(stage directions). [Enter Citizens, &c]

First Citizen. Which way ran he that kill'd Mercutio?
Tybalt, that murderer, which way ran he?



Benvolio. There lies that Tybalt.

First Citizen. Up, sir, go with me;
I charge thee in the princes name, obey.
[Enter Prince, attended; MONTAGUE, CAPULET, their]
Wives, and others]
