No, we can't be so violent. We are sacrificing for a good cause, we don't kill people for no good reason. Antony will do no wrong.
I think we should kill Mark Antony too. Him and Caesar are good friends and he could get us into trouble later.
FIne. Tell Antony that he will be going for me today.
Do not go to the Senate! Send Antony instead. I had a bad dream of your statue being drained of blood and the Romans being happy about it and washing their hands in your blood.
If you read this, O Caesar, you might live; if not, the Fates plot with traitors.
Cassius, Lucius, Brutus, and the rest of the conspirators meet in Brutus' orchard in Rome and come up with the plan to kill Caesar. Cassius later says he wants to kill Mark Antony as well because he is so close to Caesar, but Brutus disagrees because they cannot be so violent and he has done nothing bad so far.
O Caesar, read mine first, for mine's a suit That touches Caesar nearer. Read it, great Caesar.
What touches us ourself shall be last served.
Caesar plans on going to the senate that day, but Calpurnia convinces him not to go because of a bad dream she had of him bleeding out. That is until Decius, a (unknown) conspirator, convinces him to go because he interpreted it wrongly. Caesar then goes.
Artemidorus wrote a letter to Caesar warning him of how Cassius, Brutus, and the rest are to not be trusted because they plan on harming and killing him. He plans on giving this letter to him on the street he waits on as soon as he sees him pass by.
Read the will!
I found this will in Caesar's closet, but I'm not going to read it because then people will kiss his wounds and dip their handkerchiefs in his sacred blood.
As Caesar arrives to the Senate, there he runs into Artemidorus who tries to give him the warning letter he made. Caesar thinks that Artemidorus is trying to talk to him about a personally problem, and Caesar does not like that because he has the meeting in the Senate to attend to. Therefore, he rejects his letter and walks into the Senate where the conspirators are getting ready to go through with the plan.
Caesar enters the Senate and the conspirators bow before him. They then proceed to stab him over and over until his on the bloody floor dead. Mark Antony then walks in upset and angry asking to die too. Yet when they say they will not kill him, he asks why they did it and if he could speak at the funeral. They then decide it is okay for him to speak at the funeral. When Antony is alone he says Caesar's death will be avenged.
Et tu, Brute?- Then fall, Caesar!
Cassius and Brutus go out to publicly speak to the citizens about why Caesar was killed. Brutus gives a long speech basically saying how he did it because he loved Rome more than him and it would be better in the long run. All the odds are in their favor until Antony goes to give his speech where he starts with agreeing with Brutus but then progresses into saying how much good he did for Rome. He then mentions Caesar's will, that he won't read, and this erupts chaos with the citizens against Brutus and Cassius.
