Pontius Pilate:
My boy, I've heard such ideas, a long time ago. They are dreams - beautiful dreams, I know, but dreams nonetheless.



Flavius, as a Man:
Was it a dream that once I knew a man who said "Love thy neighbor as thyself"?



Marcus:
There never was such a man, I tell you.



Pontius Pilate:
Don't lie to him, Marcus. There was such a man.



Flavius, as a Man:
What happened to him?



Pontius Pilate:
I crucified Him.

Gaius Tanno:
You remind me of an acrobat in the arena walking on a rope stretched high in the air.



Marcus:
Walking on a rope?



Gaius Tanno:
Yes, a rope no wider than my thumb.



Marcus:
[laughing] I'm not walking on a rope.



Gaius Tanno:
Oh, yes, you are. Every poor man is. You think you're balanced nicely, but only money can make you safe. Some little unexpected thing, and you're down... smashed!

Cleon, the Slave Dealer:
[pandering] If you're a rich man, a few coppers wouldn't interest you.


[giving Marcus a coin]



Cleon, the Slave Dealer:
This is for your work...


[he gives him a second copper]



Cleon, the Slave Dealer:
... and this is for saving my life.



Marcus:
[laughing with contempt] Just about what the job is worth!

Cleon, the Slave Dealer:
I don't think you should look down on me, my friend. Aren't we in the same business? We both furnish amusement for the people.



Marcus:
I risk my life with the man I'm fighting. You buy and sell wretches to be slaughtered as a spectacle. I'm not proud of myself, but, by Jupiter, compared to you I'm a holy man.



Cleon, the Slave Dealer:
You will never be an old one. It isn't bravery that survives; it's brains.



Marcus:
Yes, it is well known that the rat lives longer than the lion, but who wants to be a rat? I wouldn't do your dirty work - not to save my life!
