Brutus accuses Cassius of taking bribes and being greedy.  This speaks to the theme of greed within the play.  It also relates to the theme of power.  Why does Cassius want to take control of Rome?  Is it so he can gain more money, or for the good of the Roman people?

Also look at what happens to friends within the play.  Brutus used to be friends with Caesar.  How did that turn out?  Brutus and Cassius became friends, but will they remain friends?
