Quote

Tis not so deep as a well nor so wide as a church-door, but ’tis enough, ’twill serve.”
Paladin

 

ROMEO tries to break up the fight.

TYBALT stabs MERCUTIO under ROMEO’s arm.

PETRUCHIO
Away, Tybalt.

Exeunt TYBALT, PETRUCHIO, and the other CAPULETS

MERCUTIO
I am hurt.
A plague o’ both your houses! I am sped.
Is he gone and hath nothing?

BENVOLIO
What, art thou hurt?

MERCUTIO
Ay, ay, a scratch, a scratch. Marry, ’tis enough.
Where is my page?—Go, villain, fetch a surgeon.

Exit MERCUTIO’S PAGE

ROMEO
Courage, man. The hurt cannot be much.

MERCUTIO
No, ’tis not so deep as a well nor so wide as a church-door, but ’tis enough, ’twill serve.
Ask for me tomorrow, and you shall find me a grave man. I am peppered, I warrant, for this world.
A plague o’ both your houses! Zounds, a dog, a rat, a mouse, a cat to scratch a man to death!
A braggart, a rogue, a villain that fights by the book of arithmetic!
Why the devil came you between us? I was hurt under your arm.

ROMEO
I thought all for the best.

William Shakespeare, “Romeo and Juliet” Act III Scene 1
