Sampson is a servant to the Capulets.
NO!! It was between the house of montigue and Capulet , it is started by Gregory and Sampson (BOTH CAPULET) , Basically one bit the thumb at the montigues (the equivalent to p…utting up 2 fingers to someone..) and they continue to quarrel but keeping the dignity by saying 'sir'. then the fights escalates when the caoulet explain that their master is better than theres.

Sampson was upset becauze he was tired of all that fighting that was goin on.
\n. When faced with two Montagues, Abram and Balthazar, they back down, but when Tybalt comes along they start the fight because they outnumber the Montagues. They were not t…ough enough for a fair two-on-two fight. Cowards.
