The clip confronting the senate from Gladiator (2000) with Derek Jacobi, Joaquin Phoenix For your guidance, Caesar, the Senate has prepared a series of protocols to begin addressing the many problems in the city. Beginning with basic sanitation for the Greek quarter to combat the plague which is already springing up there. So, if Caesar- Shah. Don't you see, Gracchus? That's the very problem, isn't it? My father spent all his time at study of books and learning and philosophy. He spent his twilight hours reading scrolls from the Senate. And all the while, the people have forgotten- But the Senate is the People, sire. Chosen from among the people... to speak for the people. I doubt that many of the people eat so well as you do, Gracchus. Or have such splendid mistresses, Gaius. I think I understand my own people. Then, perhaps Caesar will be so good as to teach us out of his own extensive experience. I call it love. I am their father. The people are my children. And I shall hold them to my bosom and embrace them tightly. Have you ever embraced someone dying of plague, sire? No, but if you interrupt me again, I assure you that you shall. Senator, my brother is very tired. Leave your list with me. Caesar shall do all that Rome requires. My lady, as always, your lightest touch commands obedience.
