Obviously the correct answer, but, as usual, misinterpreting the line. 'Wherefore' means 'why'; Juliet is bemoaning the fact that Romeo belongs to the opposing family, and that if only his name were different, all would be well.

8 is 'Out, damn Spot.' Apparently a particularly obedient dog of that name left the room when it heard that line on the radio.

Back to "wherefore". Why is the line, "Wherefore art thou Romeo?" Shouldn't it be "Wherefore art thou Montague?" After all, it is not the first name that causes a problem.
