Movie Quote Quiz

Centurion Quintus Dias: I've never seen a general so beloved of his men.
Bothos: Well, in training he is our scholar, at feast he is our father, in the ranks he is our brother, and in battle he is the god, we pray, to save our souls.
Septus: Where did you read that?
Bothos: It's writ on the shithouse wall, sir.
Thax: Probably wrote it himself.
Septus: He's a ruthless, reckless bastard - and I'd die for him without hesitation.

Carlisle Messenger: I have a message for your general. Now, point me in his direction before I have you flogged.
General Titus Flavius Virilus: Who are you?
Carlisle Messenger: I'm the personal envoy of Governor Agricola.
General Titus Flavius Virilus: I suggest you get down off that horse and give me your message before I have you flogged.

Bothos: Quintus, what's she doing?

Arianne: If Etain is hunting you, you might as well be dead already.
Centurion Quintus Dias: That's comforting.

Factual error: The construction of Hadrian's Wall as shown at the end of the film is not historically accurate. A wooden wall was constructed first with a deep ditch on either side. One of the ditches should be visible as the characters approach the wall but it is not. The stone wall shown being constructed was not added until later and then it was constructed in sections. It did not become a continuous stone wall until some years later. In addition, the stone wall shown is not wide enough. Hadrian's Wall is around 2 meters wide at the top and even today you can comfortably walk on top of it.
