Antony and Cleopatra Act 4, Scene 4
Antony, Cleopatra, and Eros enter. Antony asks Eros to put on his armor; Cleopatra wants Antony to come back to bed, but at his insistence at getting dressed, she tries to help him. She does not know how to put on the armor, but he shows her, and praises her when it is done. He bids Eros leave, chiding him that Cleopatra is better at his office than he is, and says that no one will dare remove this armor until it is time to rest. He wishes that Cleopatra could see the battle. A soldier enters to tell Antony there are a thousand soldiers, though it is still early, ready to go with their armor on. Captains and more soldiers enter, and Antony addresses them, telling them it is a fine morning and they will be brave today. He says goodbye to Cleopatra with a kiss, and tells the army to follow him. Charmian and Cleopatra retire to Cleopatra's bedroom, hoping for a good outcome in the battle.
