-->'''Antony''': Where is he?
-->'''Lucilius''': Safe, Antony, Brutus is safe enough.
-->I dare assure thee that no enemy shall ever take alive the noble Brutus.
-->The gods defend him from so great a shame!
-->When you do​ find him, or alive or dead,
-->He will be found like Brutus, like himself.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Although as noted below this play is much more accurate than his other history plays, Shakespeare did take some liberties. There were actually two battles of Phillipi over two weeks apart, with Cassius committing suicide after the first one, incorrectly think the Liberators had been defeated, and Brutus committing suicide after the second one in which the Liberators really were defeated.

** Antony is the master at this; his appearing stupid is what ultimately convinces Brutis not to kill him. Because of this, he has the chance to rile up the crowd and convince them to kill the conspirators.
