All these quotes are out of order from how they are said in the movie! Who wants to reorganize them...? -- 05:08, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

Be bold! Feel free to do it yourself. Wikis work best when people who recognize a problem tackle it when they see it.

too long?Edit

I find this scene very memorable, but perhaps it's too long.

  • [Brian is writing graffiti on the palace wall. The Centurion catches him in the act]
  • Centurion: What's this, then? "Romanes eunt domus"? People called Romanes, they go, the house?
  • Brian: It says, "Romans go home. "
  • Centurion: No it doesn't ! What's the latin for "Roman"? Come on, come on !
  • Brian: Er, "Romanus" !
  • Centurion: Vocative plural of "Romanus" is?
  • Brian: Er, er, "Romani" !
  • Centurion: [Writes "Romani" over Brian's graffiti] "Eunt"? What is "eunt"? Conjugate the verb, "to go" !
  • Brian: Er, "Ire". Er, "eo", "is", "it", "imus", "itis", "eunt".
  • Centurion: So, "eunt" is...?
  • Brian: Third person plural present indicative, "they go".
  • Centurion: But, "Romans, go home" is an order. So you must use...?
  • [He twists Brian's ear]
  • Brian: Aaagh ! The imperative !
  • Centurion: Which is...?
  • Brian: Aaaagh ! Er, er, "i" !
  • Centurion: How many Romans?
  • Brian: Aaaaagh ! Plural, plural, er, "ite" !
  • Centurion: [Writes "ite"] "Domus"? Nominative? "Go home" is motion towards, isn't it?
  • Brian: Dative !
  • [the Centurion holds a sword to his throat]
  • Brian: Aaagh ! Not the dative, not the dative ! Er, er, accusative, "Ad Domum" !
  • Centurion: But "Domus" takes the locative, which is...?
  • Brian: Er, "Domum" !
  • Centurion: [Writes "Domum"] Understand? Now, write it out a hundred times.
  • Brian: Yes sir. Thank you, sir. Hail Caesar, sir.
  • Centurion: Hail Caesar ! And if it's not done by sunrise, I'll cut your balls off. 11:39, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

crucifixion dialogueEdit

(A neighboured crucifixion victim (Eric Idle) is saying to Brian, just before the common 'Always look on...' song)

  • You came from nothing and you'll go back to nothing. So what you´ve lost ... Nothing.
