Marc Anthony, Caesar’s friend and one of the assassins, speaks.

Anthony:
Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.


Groundling 1:
You don’t even have a shovel. How you going to bury him?


Groundling 2:
You ain’t done a day of digging in your life, ya toff!


Anthony:
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;


Groundling 1:
Entered who with his bone ?


Groundling 2.
Aye, havin’ at that Egypitian tart, weren’t he?


Anthony:
So let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutus
Hath told you Caesar was ambitious:


Groundling 1:
He et, too, I heard, did Brutus.


Anthony
If it were so, it was a grievous fault.
And grievously hath Caesar answer'd it.


Groundling 2
He hasn’t answered for anything has he? Dead as doornail, he is. Go ahead, poke him with a stick. Dead. Dead. Dead.


Anthony
Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest—


Groundling 1,
What leafs? There ain’t no leafs.


Groundling 2
Brutus has leafs? And he ain’t even sharing.


Anthony
For Brutus is an honourable man;
So are they all, all honourable men—


Groundling 1
Bloody poms, aren’t they. Useless.


Groundling 2
Not a shovel among the lot. How you going to bury him?


Anthony
Oh, never mind.

Interviews

February 2009, Christopher Moore
"Why are we fascinated with vampires? Because they're scary, sexy, cool. All at once. That's a lot of emotion wrapped around one monster. I mean, zombies are scary, but no one wants to shag them." ...More
