I've always found that to be one of the most surprising scenes in Romeo and Juliet. I mean, you've got Romeo spying on Juliet on the balcony, listening in on her most secret and intimate thoughts, and what she's doing is fantasizing about what can only be described as gangbang situation with not one, not two, not three, but four Romeos. I mean, that's pretty shocking stuff for the time period in question. One almost has to wonder how the playwright was able to resist the temptation to use a "shake his spear" pun on his own name, given his fondness for them in general and the intensely erotic nature of the material.

Everyone asks where is Romeo, but no one asks why is Romeo?

Not to be confused with "werefore," which is someone who turns into an out-of-control golf ball on the night of the full moon.

Cyrene Valantion: Everyone asks where is Romeo, but no one asks why is Romeo?


That's actually exactly what she's asking. Wherefore means why. "Why are you Romeo?" What with the family feud and all.

Sorry, everyone. I'll go back to my dumb jokes.

Did you know Juliet's supposed to be 13? That's right. Romeo's a pedo.

Yup. I annoy my friends and family with that fact all the time (we studied the play in high school when the other classes did Macbeth).

Fun fact: The word "wherefore" still lives on in Scandinavian languages.  "Hvorfor" in Danish means "why" in the same way that "wherefore" also means "why."

Hvorfor er du Romeo?  --> Wherefore art thou Romeo?  --> Why are you "Romeo?"
