Juliet is waiting for her nurse to come and tell her news. Juliet is impatient because her nurse is late. When she does arrive, she assumes by the look on her face that the news is going to be bad. The nurse tells her that she is just out of breath. The nurse tells her she is making a foolish choice if it is just his looks that have led her to pick Romeo. Juliet's nurse then makes sure the Lady Capulet is nowhere around and tells Juliet that they are to be married that afternoon.
