Storyboard Text

  • Act One: Scene One: The Bandwagoners
  • Wherefore rejoice? What conquest brings he home? What tributaries follow him to Rome, to grace in captive bonds his chariot wheels?
  • But, indeed, sir, we make holiday, to see Caesar and to rejoice in his triumph.
  • Hence, home you idle creatures, get you home! Is this a holiday?
  • Act Two: Scene One: The Realisation
  • It must be by his death, and for my part, I know no personal cause to spurn him, but for the general. That lowliness in young ambition's ladder, whereto the climber-upward turns his face. But when he attains the upmost round, he then unto the ladder turns his back... scorning the base degrees by which he did ascend. 
  • Act Two: Scene One: Portia
  • You have some sick offence within your mind, which, by the right and virtue of my place, I ought to know. Within the bond of marriage, tell me, Brutus, is it excepted I should know no secrets  that appertain to you? If it be now more, Portia is Brutus' harlot, not his wife.
  • You are my true and honourable wife... Render me worthy of this noble wife!
  • The tribunes ask why the commoners are rejoicing in the streets. They respond that they celebrate Caesar's victory.  The tribunes remind them that they have often come to celebrate Pompey's victory.
  • Act Three: Scene Two: The Orators
  • If then, that friend demand why Brutus rose against Caesar, this is my answer. Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more.  But, as he was ambitious I slew him.
  • I thrice presented him a kingly crown, which he did thrice refuse. Was this ambition? Yet Brutus says, he was ambitious, and sure he is an honourable man.
  • Brutus  recognizes that Caesar must die to prevent a possible abuse of power. Following this Brutus is visited by the other conspirators, and they agree to kill Caesar the next day, the ides of March.
  • Act Four: Scene Three: The Visit
  • Thy evil spirit, Brutus.
  • Why comest thou?
  • Speak to me, what thou art.
  • Portia asks what is bothering Brutus because he is acting differently. Brutus then responds that he is ill, then Portia counters that if it were so he would be doing something about. She believes that it is something tormenting the mind. Next she tell him if she is his true wife then tell her, but before he can another guest comes.
  • Act Five: Scene Five: Final words
  • This was the noblest Roman of them all. All the conspirators save only he did that they did, in envy of great Caesar. He only, in a general honest thought and common good to all, made one of them. His life was gentle, and the elements so mixed in him, that Nature might stand up and say to all the world, "This was a man!"
  • Caesar has just been killed. Brutus speaks at the funeral of Caesar explaining why Caesar had to be killed (his ambition). Antony is then allowed to speak and he uses verbal irony to discredit Brutus and to sway public opinion.
  •  Following the departure of Cassius after arguing over each other wronging one another, Brutus is visited by the ghost of Caesar. Brutus ask what this apparition is, and it is his evil spirit. The spirit then tells Brutus that he will see him at Philippi which is where the last battle is going to happen. Brutus takes this as a sign that he will die.
  • Ay, at Philippi.
  • To tell thee  thou shalt see me at Philippi.
  • Well, then I I shall see thee again?
  • Cassius has killed himself. Sensing imminent defeat and capture of himself, Brutus decides that he will not live to be captured, to be ridiculed in public, or have a public execution, so Brutus runs upon his sword. Antony then arrives with party, and after hearing what happened pronounced the words above.
