From the reply thread to the original, excerpts from the dress rehearsal, which didn't exactly stay on task.
ANTONY. Friends, Time Lords, Gallifreyans, lend me your ears!
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise her.
I mean, honestly, why would I ever do so?
PINDARUS. Seriously? What's with the burying?
I only regenerated; I'm standing right here.
SECOND CITIZEN. Weren't we going for 'peace'?
But then people started throwing insults around.
ANTONY. It's as I said: no praising here.
The evil that men do lives after them,
And continues ever to annoy their fellows;
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Caesar. Particularly
The part about internment.
PINDARUS. Oh, come on!
(I still want to either write more of this, or write A Midsummer Night's Dream in the First Age of Middle-earth. She-nan-i-gans.)
