1

I,4,424

You may see, Lepidus, and henceforth know,
It is not Caesar's natural vice to hate...

2

I,4,440

You are too indulgent. Let us grant, it is not
Amiss to tumble on the bed of Ptolemy;...

3

I,4,468

I should have known no less.
It hath been taught us from the primal state,...

4

I,4,485

Antony,
Leave thy lascivious wassails. When thou once...

5

I,4,503

Let his shames quickly
Drive him to Rome: 'tis time we twain...

6

I,4,512

Till which encounter,
It is my business too. Farewell.

7

I,4,517

Doubt not, sir;
I knew it for my bond.

8

II,2,704

I do not know,
Mecaenas; ask Agrippa.

9

II,2,719

Welcome to Rome.

10

II,2,721

Sit.

11

II,2,723

Nay, then.

12

II,2,726

I must be laugh'd at,
If, or for nothing or a little, I...

13

II,2,734

No more than my residing here at Rome
Might be to you in Egypt: yet, if you there...

14

II,2,739

You may be pleased to catch at mine intent
By what did here befal me. Your wife and brother...

15

II,2,753

You praise yourself
By laying defects of judgment to me; but...

16

II,2,772

I wrote to you
When rioting in Alexandria; you...

17

II,2,784

You have broken
The article of your oath; which you shall never...

18

II,2,793

To lend me arms and aid when I required them;
The which you both denied.

19

II,2,819

I do not much dislike the matter, but
The manner of his speech; for't cannot be...

20

II,2,826

Speak, Agrippa.

21

II,2,830

Say not so, Agrippa:
If Cleopatra heard you, your reproof...

22

II,2,851

Not till he hears how Antony is touch'd
With what is spoke already.

23

II,2,856

The power of Caesar, and
His power unto Octavia.

24

II,2,864

There is my hand.
A sister I bequeath you, whom no brother...

25

II,2,879

About the mount Misenum.

26

II,2,881

Great and increasing: but by sea
He is an absolute master.

27

II,2,887

With most gladness:
And do invite you to my sister's view,...

28

II,3,989

Good night.

29

II,6,1214

Most meet
That first we come to words; and therefore have we...

30

II,6,1237

Take your time.

31

II,6,1248

There's the point.

32

II,6,1251

And what may follow,
To try a larger fortune.

33

II,6,1259

[with Antony and Lepidus] That's our offer.

34

II,6,1276

Since I saw you last,
There is a change upon you.

35

II,6,1286

That's the next to do.

36

II,6,1317

[with Antony and Lepidus]

37

II,7,1429

Will this description satisfy him?

38

II,7,1492

I could well forbear't.
It's monstrous labour, when I wash my brain,...

39

II,7,1496

Possess it, I'll make answer:
But I had rather fast from all four days...

40

II,7,1521

What would you more? Pompey, good night. Good brother,
Let me request you off: our graver business...

41

III,2,1622

You take from me a great part of myself;
Use me well in 't. Sister, prove such a wife...

42

III,2,1634

I have said.

43

III,2,1640

Farewell, my dearest sister, fare thee well:
The elements be kind to thee, and make...

44

III,2,1647

What, Octavia?

45

III,2,1667

No, sweet Octavia,
You shall hear from me still; the time shall not...

46

III,2,1674

Adieu; be happy!

47

III,2,1677

Farewell, farewell!

48

III,6,1822

Contemning Rome, he has done all this, and more,
In Alexandria: here's the manner of 't:...

49

III,6,1834

I' the common show-place, where they exercise.
His sons he there proclaim'd the kings of kings:...

50

III,6,1845

The people know it; and have now received
His accusations.

51

III,6,1848

Caesar: and that, having in Sicily
Sextus Pompeius spoil'd, we had not rated him...

52

III,6,1856

'Tis done already, and the messenger gone.
I have told him, Lepidus was grown too cruel;...

53

III,6,1864

Nor must not then be yielded to in this.

54

III,6,1867

That ever I should call thee castaway!

55

III,6,1869

Why have you stol'n upon us thus! You come not
Like Caesar's sister: the wife of Antony...

56

III,6,1889

Which soon he granted,
Being an obstruct 'tween his lust and him.

57

III,6,1892

I have eyes upon him,
And his affairs come to me on the wind....

58

III,6,1896

No, my most wronged sister; Cleopatra
Hath nodded him to her. He hath given his empire...

59

III,6,1911

Welcome hither:
Your letters did withhold our breaking forth;...

60

III,6,1932

Most certain. Sister, welcome: pray you,
Be ever known to patience: my dear'st sister!

61

III,8,2044

Taurus!

62

III,8,2046

Strike not by land; keep whole: provoke not battle,
Till we have done at sea. Do not exceed...

63

III,12,2197

Let him appear that's come from Antony.
Know you him?

64

III,12,2205

Approach, and speak.

65

III,12,2210

Be't so: declare thine office.

66

III,12,2220

For Antony,
I have no ears to his request. The queen...

67

III,12,2227

Bring him through the bands.
[Exit EUPHRONIUS]...

68

III,12,2238

Observe how Antony becomes his flaw,
And what thou think'st his very action speaks...

69

IV,1,2496

He calls me boy; and chides, as he had power
To beat me out of Egypt; my messenger...

70

IV,1,2507

Let our best heads
Know, that to-morrow the last of many battles...

71

IV,6,2704

Go forth, Agrippa, and begin the fight:
Our will is Antony be took alive;...

72

IV,6,2709

The time of universal peace is near:
Prove this a prosperous day, the three-nook'd world...

73

IV,6,2715

Go charge Agrippa
Plant those that have revolted in the van,...

74

IV,11,2893

But being charged, we will be still by land,
Which, as I take't, we shall; for his best force...

75

V,1,3278

Go to him, Dolabella, bid him yield;
Being so frustrate, tell him he mocks...

76

V,1,3284

Wherefore is that? and what art thou that darest
Appear thus to us?

77

V,1,3294

What is't thou say'st?

78

V,1,3296

The breaking of so great a thing should make
A greater crack: the round world...

79

V,1,3310

Look you sad, friends?
The gods rebuke me, but it is tidings...

80

V,1,3323

O Antony!
I have follow'd thee to this; but we do lance...

81

V,1,3346

Bid her have good heart:
She soon shall know of us, by some of ours,...

82

V,1,3353

Come hither, Proculeius. Go and say,
We purpose her no shame: give her what comforts...

83

V,1,3363

Gallus, go you along.
[Exit GALLUS]...

84

V,1,3368

Let him alone, for I remember now
How he's employ'd: he shall in time be ready....

85

V,2,3528

Which is the Queen of Egypt?

86

V,2,3531

Arise, you shall not kneel:
I pray you, rise; rise, Egypt.

87

V,2,3536

Take to you no hard thoughts:
The record of what injuries you did us,...

88

V,2,3545

Cleopatra, know,
We will extenuate rather than enforce:...

89

V,2,3558

You shall advise me in all for Cleopatra.

90

V,2,3571

Nay, blush not, Cleopatra; I approve
Your wisdom in the deed.

91

V,2,3582

Good queen, let us entreat you.

92

V,2,3602

Forbear, Seleucus.

93

V,2,3608

Cleopatra,
Not what you have reserved, nor what acknowledged,...

94

V,2,3620

Not so. Adieu.

95

V,2,3812

Bravest at the last,
She levell'd at our purposes, and, being royal,...

96

V,2,3819

Poison'd, then.

97

V,2,3825

O noble weakness!
If they had swallow'd poison, 'twould appear...

98

V,2,3836

Most probable
That so she died; for her physician tells me...
