Sinful Macduff,/They were all struck for thee! naught that I am,/Not for their own demerits, but for mine... (IV.iii.262-264).

Thou know ' st my lodging: get me ink and paper, and hire post-horses; I will hence tonight.”
In the middle of the play, Mercutio cursed both families, “ Or I shall faint. A plague o’ both your houses! / They have made worms’ meat of me. I have it” (3.1.113-114). This means that people start to die because of the Montague and the Capulets’ families.
