Ned as Soothsayer

Jiffy as Brutus

Pallas as Cassius

Matt as Casca

Pons: Calpurnia!
Hey, isn't Calpurnia the name of the housekeeper in To Kill a Mockingbird?

BILL: Cut! Okay, Pons. You'll need to stay in character and stick to the script.

Pons: Okay, Bill. Sorry. Calpurnia!

Matt:. Peace, you ho! Caesar speaks.

BILL:
It's Peace Ho, Matt. Casca says Peace Ho. It means be silent.

Matt:  Right. Sorry.
