Tybalt enters. He is a Capulet and recognizes Romeo's voice and knows instantly that he is from the Montague family. He is outraged and tells Capulet, who enters. Capulet tells him to ignore Romeo, and this makes Tybalt even angrier. They exit.

Romeo and Juliet enter again and exchange words for the first time. They speak about love. Romeo refers to his lips as "two blushing pilgrims" wanting to be kissed, and Juliet responds by saying that pressing their hands together should be enough for them. They kiss on the lips twice, and then Juliet is called away by her Nurse, who tells Romeo that Juliet is a Capulet. He is pulled away by Benvolio. Capulet then calls the feast to an end.

Juliet asks her Nurse to find out the name of the boy she was talking to. She then learns that his name is Romeo, and he is a Montague. All exit.
