CAESAR
What man is that?

A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.

CASSIUS
Fellow, come from the throng; look upon Caesar.

CAESAR

CAESAR
(gloating to soothsayer)
The ides of March are come.

SOOTHSAYER
(speaking truth to power)
Ay, Caesar; but not gone.

CAESAR
Well, I'm Caesar, and I say they are. Effective immediately, we're seasonally adjusting all the sundials forward one hour! Goodbye, Ides of March. Hello, Seventeenth Kalends of March!

BRUTUS

SOOTHSAYER
