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.)
