Be wise, Judah. It's a Roman world. If you want to live in it, you must become part of it...I tell you, Judah, it's no accident that one small village on the Tiber was chosen to rule the world...It wasn't just our legions...No, it was fate that chose us to civilize the world - and we have. Our roads and our ships connect every corner of the earth, Roman law, architecture, literature and the glory of the human race.

Messala

It's an insane world, but in it there's one sanity, the loyalty of old friends. Judah, we must believe in one another.

Messala

This is the day Judah. It's between us now.
