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!

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

What happened to him?

I crucified Him.
