Go light a candle in my study.
You called, my lord?
Caesar has to die for the greater good. He'll have the power to do damage if he's king.
To be honest, I've never seen Caesar let his emotions get the better of him, but it'll happen eventually.
Brutus calls Lucius, and tells him to light a candle in his study.
Sir, when I lit the candle in your study, I found a letter by the window.
Hm, tell me, is tommorow March 15th?
Go check the calendar then.
Brutus starts a soliloquy on how Julius Caesar must be executed, because like an adder, evil can come from good.
"Speak, strike, redress?" Wow, even the people believe Caesar should be gone!
He then admits (to himself) that Caesar hasn't done anything yet, but states that when he gets to the top, he forgets about the people that got him there, like a ladder.
Sir, the calendar says tomorrow is March 15th.
The Ides of March!
Lucius comes back and gives Brutus a letter he found in Brutus' study. Brutus tells Lucius to check if tomorrow is March 15th.
I don't know, sir.
Brutus determines that the letter was from the people of Rome, saying to get rid of Julius Caesar.
Lucius tells Brutus that tomorrow is in fact March 15th (Ides of March), a day where the Romans would settle their debts.
