Gracchus: I think he [Commodus] knows what Rome is. Rome is the mob. Conjure magic for them and they'll be distracted. Take away their freedom and still they'll roar. The beating heart of Rome is not the marble of the Senate, it's the sand of the Colosseum. He'll bring them death...and they will love him for it.
Lucilla: Is Rome worth one good man's life? We believed it once, make us believe it again. He was a soldier of Rome. Honor him.
Gracchus: I do not pretend to be a man of the people. But I do try to be a man for the people.
Lucilla: Today I saw a slave become more powerful than the Emperor of Rome.
We who are about to die salute you!
