One place is in Act 1, Scene 2, at line 150, where Cassius says to Brutus,

"Brutus and Cæsar: what should be in that ‘Cæsar?’
Why should that name be sounded more than yours?
Write them together, yours is as fair a name;
Sound them, it doth become the mouth as well;
Weigh them, it is as heavy; conjure with ’em,
‘Brutus’ will start a spirit as soon as ‘Cæsar.’ "

Also, at line 274:

"Well, Brutus, thou art noble"

And in Act 2, Scene 1, line 100:

Cas. " ...................... no man here
But honours you; and every one doth wish
You had but that opinion of yourself
Which every noble Roman bears of you."
