Commodus:
And now they love Maximus for his mercy. So I can't just kill him, or it makes me even more unmerciful! The whole thing's like some crazed nightmare.
Falco:
He is defying you. His every victory is an act of defiance. The mob sees this, and so does the senate. Every day he lives, they grow bolder. Kill him.
Commodus:
No. I will not make a martyr of him.
[Commodus walks around]

Falco:
I have been told of a certain sea snake which has a very unusual method of attracting its prey. It will lie at the bottom of the ocean as if wounded. Then its enemies will approach, and yet it will lie quite still. And then its enemies will take little bites of it, and yet it remains still.
Commodus:
So, we will lie still, and let our enemies come to us and nibble. Have every senator followed.

Transcript:
And now they love Maximus for his mercy.
So I can't just kill him,
or it makes me even more unmerciful.
The whole thing
is like some great nightmare.
He is defying you.
His every victory is an act of defiance.
The mob sees this, and so do the Senate.
Every day he lives, they grow bolder.
- Kill him.
- No.
I will not make a martyr of him.
When I went to the Senate today...
I purposefully told them about using
the grain reserves to pay for the games.
And did you note what happened?
- Nothing.
- Exactly. Nothing.
Not a single word of protest.
Even the insolent Senator Gracchus
was silent as a mouse.
Why?
I have been told of a certain sea snake...
which has a very unusual method
of attracting its prey.
It will lie at the bottom of the ocean
as if wounded.
Then its enemies will approach...
and yet it will lie quite still.
And then its enemies
will take little bites of it...
and yet it remains still.
So...
we will lie still...
and let our enemies come to us and nibble.
Have every senator followed.
Cicero, my old friend. I thought perhaps
I'd seen you for the last time.
I thought you were dead.
Close.
- How long have the men been in Ostia?
- All winter.
- And how do they look?
- Fat and bored.
Who's in command?
Some fool from Rome.
