"Fate Lends A Hand" from Arthur
1981. Dudley Moore as Arthur Bach whines to John Gielgud as Hobson that he is unloved and doesn't have anything. Hobson takes his helmet and goggles and slaps him across the face, calling him out for his immature behavior and tells him about real world realities Arthur must face and that Hobson does have affection for him. Hobson then appears at the Martolla apartment, where he meets Barney Martin as Ralph Martolla, and asks for Linda. Liza Minnelli as Linda Martolla introduces Hobson to her father, and asks for tea, and talks to her about Arthur. 

"Et Tu, Brute?" from Julius Caesar
1953. Morgan Farley as Artemidorius reads and prepares himsef to hand to Caesar a warning about a conspiracy to kill him. As Louis Calhern as Julius Caesar makes his way to the Senate, he tells Richard Hale as Soothsayer that it is the Ides of March and nothing has happened to him, and the Soothsayer says the Ides of March is still here though. Artemidorius gets Caesar's attention to pass along the warning to him, but John Hoyt as Decius Brutus dismisses him with the real schedule for his appearance in the Senate. John Gielgud as Cassius then asks Artemidorius to bring his petition to the Senate and not on the stairs to the Senate, to which Artemidorius leaves. Lumsden Hare as Publius tells Cassius that he hopes it will be successful for them, and Cassius tells James Mason as Brutus that he thinks their plans are known. Both of them notice that the plan is set in place, and they enter the Senate, where Jack Raine as Trebonius cues them and where William Contrell as Cinna reminds Edmond O'Brien as Casca what his role is. Tom Powers as Metellus Cimber pleads to Caesar about the banishment of his brother, to which Caesar dismisses and justifies his decision, then Cassius begs on Metellus Cimber's behalf, followed by Brutus, then . Then Edmond O'Brien as Casca makes the first move, and everyone around him except Brutus stabs him repeatedly. Caesar walks out of the group close to the statue of Pompeys, and Brutus stabs him.
