As in a “The Boy who Cried Wolf” scenario, the characters of Romeo and Juliet have a reason to be feeling wary. At one scene in the play, Juliet’s mind is sickened by fear that she has the notion to believe that even the Friar, a devout Christian, would have the motive to poison her. “What if it be a poison/ which the Friar hath subtly minister’d to have me dead”(IV,iii, 24-25).
