  • 1.1 Iago and Rodrigo are in the street somewhere in Venice.  Iago is upset about how Othello is ranked higher than him while Rodrigo is upset about how he is in love with Desdemona but she is married to Othello.

  • I do hate him! He thinks he's better than me!
  • 1.1 Rodrigo and Iago go to Brabantio's house to wake him up and tell him about his daughter's secret marriage.  Brabantio is furious and demands that they find him and make him pay.

  • Seize him and through him in jail for he is a thief!
