• Enter ANTONY and SCARUS, with their army

    ANTONY

    Their preparation is today by sea.
    We please them not by land.

    SCARUS

                                                             For both, my lord.

    ANTONY

    I would they’d fight i’ th’ fire or i’ th’ air,
    We’d fight there too. But this it is: our foot
    5Upon the hills adjoining to the city
    Shall stay with us. Order for sea is given;
    They have put forth the haven,
    Where their appointment we may best discover
    And look on their endeavor.
    Exeunt
  • ANTONY and SCARUS enter, with the army.

    ANTONY

    They’ve switched their operation to the sea today. We didn’t please them on land.

    SCARUS

    We’re ready for both, my lord.

    ANTONY

    I wish they’d fight in fire or in the air. We’d meet them there too. But here’s the plan: our army will stay with us on the hills by the city. Orders have been given to the navy and they’ve left port. We’ll be able to analyze and direct the battle better from the hills.
    They exit.
