Romeo and Juliet has no followers yet. Be the first one to follow.
The Friar explains the story to the prince. Montague explains to everyone that his wife has died of grief. Montague and Capulet make up, and a very select few live sadly ever after.
Here we go: Romeo shows up at the Capulet's tomb, and goes in. Then Paris shows up, sees Romeo, they duel. Paris dies. Romeo takes Paris' body over to Juliet, drinks his poison, and dies on Juliet. The Friar shows up, wigs out, (Yes! But wait, there's more!) and then Juliet wakes up. Juliet says some stuff to the Friar, and the Friar leaves. Juliet continues wigging out, (6!) stabs herself, and dies.
Romeo hears from Balthasar that Juliet is dead. He wigs out, (can I fit in another one?) buys a dram of some hardcore poison, and heads for the Capulet's tomb.
Juliet is still with Friar Lawrence, who devises the plan: Juliet fakes her death, using a liquid from a VIAL, not a vile. And then Romeo comes as she wakes up, and they run away. Juliet goes home, and drinks the VIAL.
Romeo and Juliet meet for the last time at Juliet's house. They spend the night together, and Juliet tries to convince Romeo to stay a little while longer the following morning, but Romeo must leave before the Guards are out.
The letter to Romeo in Mantua does not make it out of Verona, and the Friar wigs out, (That's 4!) and goes to the tomb of the Capulets, in a hurry.
Capulet makes his daughter's decision for her, as she has put it off for awhile. Juliet wigs out, (again) and asks the Friar for help, or she'll kill her self right there. The Plan is hatched.
Shorly after his marriage, Romeo and his friends run into Tybalt, who is angry at Romeo for crashing the party. Tybalt challenges and kills Mercutio. Romeo kills Tybalt. Then the Prince shows up and banishes Romeo from Verona for life.
Romeo and Mercutio have a rhyming duel of wits, which Romeo wins. It's pretty awesome too. Then they find the Nurse, whom they heckle, then tell her the plan for marriage, which she tells to Juliet.
Romeo and Juliet meet in the cell of Friar Lawrence, who marries them, then and there.
Romeo tells the Friar of his and Juliet's engagement. The Friar agrees to marry them in secret. The Friar also says, "Be plain, good son, and homely in thy drift!", which might be my favorite line in the play.
Romeo complains to the Friar about banishment. Romeo says it's worse than death. The Friar talks him out of it, and tells him the plan to meet Juliet that night.
Juliet is talking to herself about Romeo and night, then she hears the news about the death of her cousin and the banishment of her husband, and wigs out. (Yes, wigs out.) The plan is for them to meet one last time, that night.
Romeo finds Juliet at her balcony. They declare their love for each other and plan to marry each other.
Paris requests permission to marry Juliet. When Capulet says no initally, Paris says, "Younger than she are happy mothers made."
Romeo and his friends attend the Capulet's party. Tybalt recognises Romeo. Romeo and Juliet meet, and are instanty in love.
Later in the same scene, Romeo hears of Capulet's party, by reading a letter about it to a slave, and decides to go.
The opening brawl, incited by Gregory and Sampson, brings about the ruling by the prince that anyone who continues the Montague-Capulet feud shall be put to death.
