That's a deal. Now let me tell you, Casca, I have already convinced some of the noblest Romans to join me in an honorable but dangerous mission. I know that by now they're waiting for me on the porch outside Pompey's theater. We're meeting tonight since no one will be around. The work we have to do is bloody, fiery, and terrible.
How can Caesar be a tyrant then? Poor man! I know he wouldn't be a wolf if the Romans didn't act like sheep. Rome becomes complete trash, nothing but rubbish and garbage, when it works to light up the ambitions of someone as worthless as Caesar. I'll be held accountable for my words, but
Every imprisoned man holds in his own hand the tool to free himself.
You're talking to Casca, not to some smiling, two-faced tattletale. Say no more. Shake my hand. If you're joining together to right these wrongs, I'll go as far as any one of you.
It's Cinna. I recognize his walk. He's a friend.
Hide for a minute-someone's approaching fast.
Are the others waiting? Tell me.
No, it's Casca, he's going to work with us. Aren't the others waiting for me, Cinna?
Cinna, where are you going in such a hurry?
I'm glad Casca is with us. What a fearful night this is! Two or three of us have seen strange things.
To find you. Who's that? Metellus Cimber?
Yes, they are. Oh, Cassius, if only you could convince Brutus to join us-
Don't worry. Good Cinna, take this paper and be sure to lay it in the judge's chair where Brutus sits, so he'll find it. And throw this one in his window, and attach this one with wax to the statue of Brutus's ancestor, old Brutus. When you've finished all this, return to the porch of Pompey's theater, where you'll find us. Are Decius Brutus and Trebonius there?
When you've finished, go back to pompey's theater.
Everyone's there except Metellus Cimber, and he's gone to look for you at your house. Well, I'll hurry and put these papers where you told me.
Come on, Casca, you and I will go see Brutus at his house before sunrise. He's three-quarters on our side already, and we'll win him over entirely at this meeting.
Oh, the people love him well. Things that would look bad if we did them, Brutus could do and look virtuous-just like an alchemist turns worthless tin into gold.
Yes, you're absolutely right about how worthy Brutus is and how much we need him
