Their preparation is today by sea.
We please them not by land.

ANTONY
I would they’d fight i’ th’ fire or i’ th’ air,
We’d fight there too. But this it is: our foot
Upon the hills adjoining to the city
Shall stay with us. Order for sea is given;
They have put forth the haven,
Where their appointment we may best discover
And look on their endeavor.
ANTONY
I wish they’d fight in fire or in the air. We’d meet them there too. But here’s the plan: our army will stay with us on the hills by the city. Orders have been given to the navy and they’ve left port. We’ll be able to analyze and direct the battle better from the hills.
Exeunt
They exit.
