      But cold demeanor in Octavio's wing,   cold demeanor lack of fighting spirit | Octavio's Octavius's
5.2.5      And sudden push gives them the overthrow.   sudden . . . overthrow a quick attack will defeat them
      Ride, ride, Messala: let them all come down.   let them all come down (Brutus' reserves are in the hills above
