The two tribunes, protectors of the commoners, are very angry with the them for celebrating Caesar's victory over a fellow Roman. When the tribunes attempt to stop the commoners from celebrating, the commoners joke and continue their celebration. They look at the day as an excuse for getting out of work. Eventually the commoners are "scolded" into going back to their jobs and homes.
