But the Senate IS the people

Gracchus:
But the Senate IS the people, sire. Chosen from AMONG the people. To speak FOR the people.
Commodus:
I doubt if any of the people eat so well as you, Gracchus. Or have such splendid mistresses, Gaius.

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
my own people.
Then perhaps Caesar will
be so good as to teach us,
out of his own
extensive experience.
(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?
