- What's this, then? "Romanes eunt domus"? "People called Romanes, they go the house"?
- It says, "Romans go home".
- No, it doesn't. What's Latin for "Roman"? Come on.
- Romanus?
- Goes like...?
- Anus?
- Vocative plural of "anus" is...?
- Ani?
- Romani.
- "Eunt"? What is eunt?
- "Go".
- Conjugate the verb "to go".
- Ere, eo, is, it, imus, itis, eunt.
- So "eunt" is...?

- Hail Ceasar. If it's not done by sunrise, I'll cut your balls off.
- Oh, thank you, sir. Thank you, sir. Hail Ceasar and everything, sir.
- Finished...
- Right. Now, don't do it again!
