A scene from a famous TV serie, Rome. Gaius Julius Caesar is talking to soldiers of 13th Legion. Here's the text of speech:

- Soldiers! Pompey and the Senate have formally declared that Gaius Julius Caesar is an enemy of Rome.

- No!

- They have declared that I am a criminal. They have declared, in effect, that all of you also are criminals!

- No!

- The tribune's veto was not exercised. Peoples
tribune Mark Antony and 50 men of the 13th were assaulted by 1000 head of Pompeian scum.

- No !

- A tribune of the plebs assaulted on the steps of the Senate house! Can you imagine a more terrible sacrilege? Our beloved Republic is in the hands of madmen. This is a dark day, and I stand at a fork in the road. I can abide the law and surrender my arms to the Senate - and watch the Republic fall to tyranny and chaos. Or, I can go home with my sword in hand and run those maniacs to the Tarpean Rock!

- Yeah ! Yeah !

- Legionary Titus Pullo, step forward! Titus Pullo! ... When 50 brave men of the 13th fought Pompey's 1000 in the forum and saved the tribune, it was legionary Titus Pullo who drew first blood! Here is 500 denarii!

- Very grateful, sir.

- Are you with me, Titus Pullo? Will you come with me to Rome?

- Yes. Yes, sir! Certainly!

- Titus Pullo is with me! And you? Are you with me?

- Yeah! Yeah!
