    I'm not sure what you mean by the "top 10 scenes". I don't think anybody voted on that. :wink:

    I have to agree with Mike in saying I'm not quite sure what you mean by "top ten scenes".

    Romeo and Juliet has 23 scenes. The first 10 scenes take place in a Public Place in Verona, Mantua:

    Part I
    Scenes 1 and 11 Public Place in Verona, Mantua
    Scenes 2 and 4 Capulet's House
    Scenes 3 and 8 Street in Verona
    Scene 5 By Wall of Capulet's House
    Scenes 6 and 9 Capulet's Orchard
    Scenes 7 and 10 Friar Laurence's Cell

    Part II
    Scenes 12, 15, 18 and 20 Juliet's Bedroom
    Scenes 13 and 16 Friar Laurence's Cell
    Scenes 14, 17 and 19 Capulet's House
    Scene 21 Street in Mantua
    Scene 22 Outside Friar Laurence's Cell
    Scene 23 Tomb of the Capulets

    All the best,

    I'm not sure what the top ten scenes would be, but in what is known as the balcony scene Juliet asks, "Wherefore art thou Romeo?" (Literally, "Why are you Romeo?") What she means is, "Why must you be named Romeo?" She is wistfully thinking that if only their names were different they could be lovers.

    :)

    Erm...I don't think it was his first name that was causing the problem. :wink:

    No, Juliet goes on to say "If only you were not a Montague or I were not a Capulet" (or something close).

    (She is definitely not asking him where he is.)
