A Literary Side Conversation

I was just thinking of a side conversation for Romeo and Juliet. I’ll share even though it isn’t much:

Rosaline: I’ve been giving Romeo the silent treatment. He kept calling me all the time, but his schtick was so bad I could tell he was just trying to get into my pants. I figure a little time to stew will get him to step up his game and bring me some real romance.

Livia: He’s dead.

Rosaline: What?!

Livia: Yeah, he fell totally in love with Juliet and they end up killing themselves for each other. It was in all the papers.

Rosaline: But he was after me only a week ago! When did this all happen? You know what? Screw him. I’m going after Mercutio, or maybe Tybalt.

Livia: ….

Rosaline: What?!

Livia: How do you feel about Benvolio?

I can see why this wasn’t considered on point enough to make it into the original, but surely this should be in the DVD extras. It’s a viewpoint I feel should be included.
