  • Act I, Scene 1 
  • No I think I´ll stay. 
  • Wrong again commoner. Go home!
  • All of you need to go home right now. 
  • Act 1, Scene 1 
  • Are you sure?
  • Let's take the decorations off the statues of Caesar. 
  • Yeah let's do it. 
  • Act 1, Scene 2
  • Who calls for me?
  • Beware the ides of March. 
  • I'll be fine. 
  • A large group of commoners is in the street celebrating the victories of Caesar. Flavius and Marallus are walking through the streets telling the commoners to go home. Flavius yells, ¨Hence! home, you idle creatures, get you home!¨ Two commoners decide not to listen to Flavius and Marallus but cause trouble instead. One of the commoners talks back to the Marallus and Flavius.  
  • Act 1, Scene 2
  • What was all that yelling about?
  • Caesar was offered the crown but he refused it. 
  • After a debate between the commoners and Flavius and Marallus. The two men say  that they are forgetting about Pompey. At this the commoners return to their homes. Flavius then comes up with the idea of taking the decorations off of the Caesar statues. He can be quoted as saying, ¨let no images be hung with Caesar's trophies."  The two of them perform this task then later in the act it is said that they were ¨silenced¨. 
  • Act 1, Scene 3
  • This lion must mean that the gods are angered.
  • Caesar and a group of his followers and friends are walking into a stadium for the race of Lupercal. As the group is walking in a soothsayer cries out to Caesar from somewhere in the crowd. When Caesar locates the source of the noise the soothsayer says, "Beware the ides of March." At this Caesar laughs. The group continues to walk in but Brutus and Cassius stay back and talk about Caesar. 
  • Act 1, Scene 3
  • It will be done. 
  • Take this letter Brutus but wait until he is asleep. 
  • While the fans are inside watching the race Cassius is attempting to get Brutus to join the conspirators. While they are speaking they hear three loud spurts of shouting and wonder what it is for.As Caesar and his men emerge from within the stadium Casca shares that thrice the crown was offered to Caesar and three times he denied it. Casca can be quoted as saying, "...he put it by thrice, every time gentler than other..." After this Cassius invites Casca to dinner.   
  • Casca sees many strange sights the night before the assassination of Caesar such as a lion in the streets of the city and a slave with his hands on fire. This leads him to believe that the gods are angered  with the conspirators. Casca says to Cicero, "Either there is a civil strife in heaven, Or else the world, too saucy with the gods, Incenses them to send destruction."
  • Cassius becomes desperate for Brutus to be a conspirator. He wants Brutus to be a conspirator so badly that he writes Brutus letters under different names telling him that he should become a conspirator.Casca can be quoted as saying, "And that which would appear offense in us, his countenance, like richest alchemy, will change to virtue and to worthiness."
