1

I,2,170

Fulvia thy wife first came into the field.

2

I,2,172

Ay:
But soon that war had end, and the time's state
Made friends of them, joining their force 'gainst Caesar;
Whose better issue in the war, from Italy,
Upon the first encounter, drave them.

3

I,2,178

The nature of bad news infects the teller.

4

I,2,183

Labienus—
This is stiff news—hath, with his Parthian force,
Extended Asia from Euphrates;
His conquering banner shook from Syria
To Lydia and to Ionia; Whilst—

5

I,2,189

O, my lord!

6

I,2,197

At your noble pleasure.

7

I,4,461

Thy biddings have been done; and every hour,
Most noble Caesar, shalt thou have report
How 'tis abroad. Pompey is strong at sea;
And it appears he is beloved of those
That only have fear'd Caesar: to the ports
The discontents repair, and men's reports
Give him much wrong'd.

8

I,4,476

Caesar, I bring thee word,
Menecrates and Menas, famous pirates,
Make the sea serve them, which they ear and wound
With keels of every kind: many hot inroads
They make in Italy; the borders maritime
Lack blood to think on't, and flush youth revolt:
No vessel can peep forth, but 'tis as soon
Taken as seen; for Pompey's name strikes more
Than could his war resisted.

II,5,1081

Madam, madam,—

10

II,5,1087

First, madam, he is well.

11

II,5,1093

Good madam, hear me.

12

II,5,1100

Will't please you hear me?

13

II,5,1106

Madam, he's well.

14

II,5,1108

And friends with Caesar.

15

II,5,1110

Caesar and he are greater friends than ever.

16

II,5,1112

But yet, madam,—

17

II,5,1120

Free, madam! no; I made no such report:
He's bound unto Octavia.

18

II,5,1123

For the best turn i' the bed.

19

II,5,1125

Madam, he's married to Octavia.

20

II,5,1128

Good madam, patience.

21

II,5,1136

Gracious madam,
I that do bring the news made not the match.

22

II,5,1143

He's married, madam.

23

II,5,1146

Nay, then I'll run.
What mean you, madam? I have made no fault.

24

II,5,1167

I have done my duty.

25

II,5,1171

He's married, madam.

26

II,5,1173

Should I lie, madam?

27

II,5,1179

I crave your highness' pardon.

28

II,5,1181

Take no offence that I would not offend you:
To punish me for what you make me do.
Seems much unequal: he's married to Octavia.

29

III,3,1693

Most gracious majesty,—

30

III,3,1695

Ay, dread queen.

31

III,3,1697

Madam, in Rome;
I look'd her in the face, and saw her led
Between her brother and Mark Antony.

32

III,3,1701

She is not, madam.

33

III,3,1703

Madam, I heard her speak; she is low-voiced.

34

III,3,1709

She creeps:
Her motion and her station are as one;
She shows a body rather than a life,
A statue than a breather.

35

III,3,1714

Or I have no observance.

36

III,3,1722

Madam,
She was a widow,—

37

III,3,1725

And I do think she's thirty.

38

III,3,1727

Round even to faultiness.

39

III,3,1730

Brown, madam: and her forehead
As low as she would wish it.

40

III,7,2005

The news is true, my lord; he is descried;
Caesar has taken Toryne.

41

III,7,2039

The emperor calls Canidius.

42

IV,6,2713

Antony
Is come into the field.
