1

II,1,635

Caesar and Lepidus
Are in the field: a mighty strength they carry.

2

II,1,638

From Silvius, sir.

3

II,1,662

I cannot hope
Caesar and Antony shall well greet together:
His wife that's dead did trespasses to Caesar;
His brother warr'd upon him; although, I think,
Not moved by Antony.

4

II,6,1320

[Aside] Thy father, Pompey, would ne'er have
made this treaty.—You and I have known, sir.

5

II,6,1323

We have, sir.

6

II,6,1325

And you by land.

7

II,6,1328

Nor what I have done by water.

8

II,6,1331

And you by land.

9

II,6,1335

All men's faces are true, whatsome'er their hands are.

10

II,6,1337

No slander; they steal hearts.

11

II,6,1339

For my part, I am sorry it is turned to a drinking.
Pompey doth this day laugh away his fortune.

12

II,6,1342

You've said, sir. We looked not for Mark Antony
here: pray you, is he married to Cleopatra?

13

II,6,1345

True, sir; she was the wife of Caius Marcellus.

14

II,6,1347

Pray ye, sir?

15

II,6,1349

Then is Caesar and he for ever knit together.

16

II,6,1352

I think the policy of that purpose made more in the
marriage than the love of the parties.

17

II,6,1358

Who would not have his wife so?

18

II,6,1366

And thus it may be. Come, sir, will you aboard?
I have a health for you.

19

II,6,1369

Come, let's away.

20

II,7,1411

[Aside to POMPEY] Pompey, a word.

21

II,7,1414

[Aside to POMPEY] Forsake thy seat, I do beseech
thee, captain,
And hear me speak a word.

22

II,7,1435

[Aside to POMPEY] If for the sake of merit thou
wilt hear me,
Rise from thy stool.

23

II,7,1441

I have ever held my cap off to thy fortunes.

24

II,7,1446

Wilt thou be lord of all the world?

25

II,7,1448

Wilt thou be lord of the whole world? That's twice.

26

II,7,1450

But entertain it,
And, though thou think me poor, I am the man
Will give thee all the world.

27

II,7,1454

Now, Pompey, I have kept me from the cup.
Thou art, if thou darest be, the earthly Jove:
Whate'er the ocean pales, or sky inclips,
Is thine, if thou wilt ha't.

28

II,7,1459

These three world-sharers, these competitors,
Are in thy vessel: let me cut the cable;
And, when we are put off, fall to their throats:
All there is thine.

29

II,7,1471

[Aside] For this,
I'll never follow thy pall'd fortunes more.
Who seeks, and will not take when once 'tis offer'd,
Shall never find it more.

30

II,7,1478

Enobarbus, welcome!

31

II,7,1482

Why?

32

II,7,1485

The third part, then, is drunk: would it were all,
That it might go on wheels!

33

II,7,1488

Come.

34

II,7,1537

No, to my cabin.
These drums! these trumpets, flutes! what!
Let Neptune hear we bid a loud farewell
To these great fellows: sound and be hang'd, sound out!

35

II,7,1543

Ho! Noble captain, come.
