Act I Scene 2 Line 10
“When Caesar says, do this,’ it is perform’d”

I think that Antony is a suck up to Caesar
when he says this he is a suck up to Caesar.

Act I Scene 2 Lines 110-114
“Help me Cassius, or I sink…..so from the
waves of Tiber Did I the tired Caesar.”

I think when Cassius says this he is saying
that Caesar isn’t all big and bad because he
had to save him.

Act I Scene 2 Line 145
“Brutus will start a spirit as soon as Caesar”

The meaning of this is saying that Cassius
thinks Brutus would be a better king then
Caesar any day, but I think he is wrong.
I think that Caesar sees that Cassius doesn’t
like him and he might try something.

Act I Scene 2 Lines 191-192
“Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look;
He thinks too much: such men are dangerous”
Act I Scene 3 Line 89
“I know where I will wear this dagger then”

I think that this quote makes it obvious that
Cassius has a grudge on Caesar and he would
kill himself if Caesar is king.

Act II Scene 1 Line 154
“Shall no man else be touch’d but only
Caesar?”
Act II Scene 1 Line 165
“For Antony is but a limb of Caesar”

I think that they wanted to kill Antony but
decided to only kill Caesar.

Act II Scene 2 Line 83
“The dream is all a miss interpreted”

By this I think they mean that Antony is
nothing and he won’t interfere with them after
Caesar is gone.
In this scene I think Decius is trying to
persuade Caesar to come to the capitol
because of the plan.

Act II Scene 1 Line 296
“Think you I am no stronger than my sex”

I think Portia feels that she is much more than
what Brutus thinks of her.

Act II Scene 2 Line 32
“Cowards die many times before their death”

I think Caesar doesn’t want to not show up to
the capitol because if he doesn’t he will seem
like a coward, but I disagree with him
because I would trust Cal’s dream.
I believe that Caesar is being arrogant when
he says this.

Act III Scene 1 Line 7
“What touches us ourself shall be last serv’d”
Act III Scene 1 Line 77
“Et tu, Brute?”

Act III Scene 1 Line 110
“Lets all cry, ‘Peace, freedom, and liberty!”

I think Caesar is surprised when he sees
Brutus standing over him while he dies, I
would too because I wouldn’t like to see a
friend of mine killing me.
I think Brutus feels he has accomplished
something for Rome, but I know he has just
doomed himself.

Act III Scene 1 Line 184
“Let each man render me his bloody hand”
Act III Scene 2 Line 92
“Yet Brutus says he was ambitious”

I think Antony did this so he could get all of
Caesar’s blood on himself.

When Antony keeps saying this over I think
he begins to feel angry and sad because he
feels Caesar was killed for no good reason.
Act IV Scene 1 Line 18
I think Antony says this because he is
“Octavius, I have seen more days than you…” experienced than Octavius, but I think that
Octavius thinks he is just as good.
Act IV Scene 2 Line 37
I think Cassius that Brutus is being mad over
“Most noble brother, you have done me
nothing and that he is wrong.
wrong.”
Act IV Scene 3 Line 90
Cassius feels that Brutus is not a true friend
“A friendly eye could never see such faults.”
because Brutus is saying Cassius has being
doing wrong, but I agree with Brutus because
Cassius was taking bribes for money.
Act IV Scene 3 Line 198
At first Brutus wants to go to the enemy, but I
“ Tis better that the enemy seek us”
think he is hesitate about, so Cassius says to
let the enemy find them.
Act IV Scene 3 Line 283
By this I think Caesar is saying that Brutus
“To tell thee thou shalt see me at Philippi.”
will die as he did, I can see this happening
because Antony is a great general.
Act V Scene 1 Line 18
Octavius wants to be the leading general on
“Upon the right hand I. Keep thou the left.”
the right. I say it should be Antony, because
he is better. Octavius unexperienced.
Act V Scene 1 Lines 65-66
In this scene they are just smack-talking to
If you dare fight today, come to the field; If
each other, to me it’s funny because instead of
not, when you have stomachs.”
fighting, they are just talking junk.
Act V Scene 3 Lines 45-46
Pindarus thought it were enemies that were
“Caesar thou art reveng’d, Even with the
coming toward him and killed himself, but I
sword that killed thee.”
think that it was stupid of him to do that,
because he should have wait to see who they
were.
Act V Scene 4 Line 25
I think the idea of having a fake Brutus to
“He will be found like Brutus, like himself”
hide the real Brutus is clever, but it makes
him seem like a coward.
Act V Scene 2 Line 5
I think they shouldn’t have been trying to take
“O Cassius, Brutus gave word too early”
things from the enemies camp, even though it
was a good advantage for them, it gave
Octavius’ army a better advantage.
