Basically Mercutio is teasing the Nurse all the way, making sexual references such as 'Tis no less, I tell you, for the bawdy hand of the dial is now upon the prick of noon.'

She reacts in the typical Nurse-like fashion: flustered and indignant 'Out upon you! what a man are you!'

he continues to tease her throughout and Shakespeare is providing the audience with some nice comical moments in a play that can be very intense

Mercutio is an anti-romantic character regards love as an exclusively physical pursuit and his reaction to the nurse reflects this.
