Commodus: I think I understand my own people.
Gracchus: Then perhaps Caesar will be so good as to teach us, out of his own extensive experience?
Commodus: I call it love, Gracchus. The people are my children, I am their father. I shall hold them to my bosom and embrace them tightly...
Gracchus: Have you ever embraced someone dying of plague, sire?
Commodus: No, but if you interrupt me again, I assure you that you will.

Marcus Aurelius: You have proven your valor once again, Maximus. Let us hope for the last time.
Maximus: There is no one left to fight, sire.
Marcus Aurelius: There is always someone left to fight. How can I reward Rome's greatest general?
Maximus: Let me go home.
Marcus Aurelius: Ah, home.

Marcus Aurelius: Won't you accept this great honor that I have offered you?
Maximus: With all my heart, no.
Marcus Aurelius: Maximus, that is why it must be you.

[to his daughter Lucilla] If only you had been born a man, what a Caesar you would have made.

Marcus Aurelius

Three weeks from now, I will be harvesting my crops. Imagine where you will be, and it will be so.

Maximus

Vesper Lynd: I'll keep my eyes on the money and off your perfectly formed ass!
James Bond: So you noticed!
Vesper Lynd: Yes, even accountants have imagination.

Vesper Lynd: You love me?
James Bond: Enough to travel the world with you until one of us has to take an honest job... which I think is going to have to be you, because I have no idea what an honest job is.

I should have introduced myself, seeing as we're related. I'm Felix Leiter, your brother from Langley.

Felix Leiter

Felix Leiter: You should have faith. As long as you keep your head about you, I think you could have him.
James Bond: Had. Excuse me.
Felix Leiter: You're not buying in?
James Bond: No.

Le Chiffre: You've changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I do hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire?
James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

James Bond: You want to do what to me?
Vesper Lynd: You've lost me completely.
James Bond: You just said you can't wait to get me back to the room.

James Bond: Dry Martini.
Bartender: Oui, monsieur.
