Tybalt is a character in Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet. He is the nephew of Lady Capulet. Tybalt is not a very likeable character. He is arrogant and quick to anger. However, he is also a skilled swordsman. This makes him a formidable opponent.
Tybalt kills Mercutio in a duel and in revenge Romeo kills Tybalt and is exiled.
Lines By Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet
|#||Act, Scene, Line||Speech text|
|1||I,1,80||What, art thou drawn among these heartless hinds?|
Turn thee, Benvolio, look upon thy death.
|2||I,1,84||What, drawn, and talk of peace! I hate the word,|
As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee:
Have at thee, coward!
[Enter, several of both houses, who join the fray;
then enter Citizens, with clubs]
|3||I,5,676||This, by his voice, should be a Montague.|
Fetch me my rapier, boy. What dares the slave
Come hither, cover’d with an antic face,
To fleer and scorn at our solemnity?
Now, by the stock and honour of my kin,
To strike him dead, I hold it not a sin.
|4||I,5,683||Uncle, this is a Montague, our foe,|
A villain that is hither come in spite,
To scorn at our solemnity this night.
|5||I,5,687||‘Tis he, that villain Romeo.|
|6||I,5,698||It fits, when such a villain is a guest:|
I’ll not endure him.
|7||I,5,706||Why, uncle, ’tis a shame.|
|8||I,5,714||Patience perforce with wilful choler meeting|
Makes my flesh tremble in their different greeting.
I will withdraw: but this intrusion shall
Now seeming sweet convert to bitter gall.
|9||III,1,1535||Follow me close, for I will speak to them.|
Gentlemen, good den: a word with one of you.
|10||III,1,1539||You shall find me apt enough to that, sir, an you|
will give me occasion.
|11||III,1,1542||Mercutio, thou consort’st with Romeo,—|
|12||III,1,1554||Well, peace be with you, sir: here comes my man.|
|13||III,1,1558||Romeo, the hate I bear thee can afford|
No better term than this,—thou art a villain.
|14||III,1,1564||Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries|
That thou hast done me; therefore turn and draw.
|15||III,1,1575||What wouldst thou have with me?|
|16||III,1,1582||I am for you.|
|17||III,1,1639||Thou, wretched boy, that didst consort him here,|
Shalt with him hence.
