        1. For example, in Act I, scene ii, Caesar is talking to Antony about Cassius when Caesar says, “Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look; He thinks too much: such men are dangerous.”

        1. For example, in Act I, scene ii, Caesar orders Antony to touch Calphurnia as he runs his race. Antony says, “When Caesar says. ‘Do this,’ it is performed.”
