A Foe to the Tyrants and my country's friend; I am the son of Marcus Cato Ho!
O young and noble Cato, art thou down?
We must not. A noble prisoner!
Only I yield to die:There is so much that thou wilt kill me straight;Kill Brutus, and be honour'd in his death.
Brutus, Cato, Lucilius. Messala, and Flavius are preparing to battle against Octavius and Antony’s army. Cato attempts to inspire the army as Brutus, Messala and Flavius exit. Brutus exits to avoid being captured
Brutus is ta'en, Brutus is ta'en, my lord.
Cato is killed by the soldiers.
Where is he?
Lucilius gets captured by the soldiers who think that he is Brutus. He attempts to offer money for them to kill him but they refuse the offer. He wants to be killed in order to protect Brutus
And see whether Brutus be alive or dead;And bring us word unto Octavius' tentHow every thing is chanced.
Antony is informed that "Brutus" has been caught.
Antony finds out that the soldiers did not capture Brutus. He speaks to Lucilius who tells him that Brutus will never be taken as a prisoner.
Safe, Antony; Brutus is safe enough:When you do find him, or alive or dead,When you do find him, or alive or dead,
Antony tells the soldiers that Lucillius is not Brutus but admires his loyalty so he tells them not to kill him. He tells them to find out if Brutus is alive or dead and then return to Ocatavius and report their findings.
