Julius Caesar Act II, Scene IV
Meanwhile, Portia waits nervously at home, wondering when Marcus Brutus will return. She speaks with Lucius, her husband's trusted servant, and asks him if he hears strange sounds coming from the Senate. He does not, although Portia continues to worry, as if aware of what is about to happen. The soothsayer passes by the front of the house, and Portia questions him as well on the status of the proceedings. The soothsayer simply comments that he is hoping to catch Caesar and warn him again about the ides of March.
