Juba: Can they hear you? Maximus: Who? Juba: Your family. In the afterlife. Maximus: Oh yes. Juba: What do you say to them? Maximus: To my son - I tell him I will see him again soon. To keep his heels down while riding his horse. To my wife... that is not your business.
Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) “I would butcher the whole world if you would only love me. I search the faces of the gods…for ways to please you, to make you proud. One kind word, one full hug… where you pressed me to your chest and held me tight. It would have been like the sun on my heart for a thousand years”.
