Transcript:
But the senate is
the people, sire,
chosen from among the people
to speak for the people.
I doubt many of the people eat
so well as you do, Gracchus.
Or have such splendid
mistresses, Gaius.
I think I understand

(ALL CHUCKLING)
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?
