Antony and Cleopatra Act 4, Scene 2

Antony, Cleopatra, Enobarbus, Charmian, Iras, and Alexas enter. Enobarbus has told Antony that Caesar will not fight one-on-one with him, and tells him the reason is that he believes Antony is at a far greater advantage. Antony asks Enobarbus to fight tomorrow with him, and Enobarbus says "I'll strike, and cry, 'Take all.'"Act 4, Scene 2, ll. 9, with the double meaning that he will fight to the finish and he will strike sail and surrender. Antony says that they will feast well tonight. Several servants enter and Antony thanks them all for their support and service; he wishes that he could be divided and they could be united so he could serve them as well as they have served him. He asks them to serve him well tonight, for tomorrow it could be that they will serve another master. Enobarbus asks him to stop, as he is making them all about to cry, but Antony insists that he does not mean this in a sad way; he is hoping not for death and honor but for life and victory. They go to the feast.
