Lucius: [Jesus is trying to visit John the Baptist in prison] The prisoner John is not allowed visitors. If you wish to send him a message, leave it with the guard.
Jesus: I would see John.
Jesus: I come to free John.
Lucius: [sarcastically] And just how do you propose to break him free from his cell?
Jesus: I come to free him within his cell.
Lucius: Freedom? Behind stone walls?
Jesus: You are free to come and go as you please, and yet you are still a prisoner because you place no faith in anything but your sword.
John the Baptist: [to Lucius, who is visiting him in his prison cell] You treated me well. I should like to ask just one more kindness.
John the Baptist: Before I leave this world, I would send a message to Jesus.
Lucius: What is the message?
John the Baptist: Ask of Him, in these words, "Was it Your coming that was foretold, or are we to expect another?"
Lucius: You doubt Him?
John the Baptist: No. I do not doubt Him. But I would like to hear it from His own lips.

Lucius: That is all.

Pontius Pilate: Have you considered the possibility of the followers of Jesus and Barabbas joining forces?
Lucius: I have.
Pontius Pilate: Where would it happen?
Lucius: Since we are here... here!
Darrin Hill: Booty is in the eye of the beholder
Lucius: No, booty gonna be in my hand.
Lucius: Check it out now, you see, now your Louisiana booty, it gets its renowned buoyancy from its heavy seafood diet, while your Alabama booty, it's characterized by its density. You're talking about a quarter-bouncing ping. And as for your Mississippi booty, it's been an ongoing debate, but consensus say that the Indian genetic contribution gives us its beautiful tone. And as for your Georgia booty, it's been known for ages that the Georgia sun bakes and seals all the booty juices into a slow roast.
Darrin Hill: I see I'm dealing with a connoisseur.
Lucius: Oh yeah, for sure. A booty connoisseur.
Lucius: I have the key to your heart.
Dorian Gray: [aggressively] Don't touch that ever!
Lucius: [Last lines of the film] Go some of you, bear Saturninus hence, and give him burial in his father's grave. My father and Lavinia shall forthwith be closed in our household's monument. As for that ravenous tiger, Tamora, no funeral rite nor man in mourning weeds, no mournful bell shall ring her burial! But throw her forth to beasts and birds of prey! Her life was beast-like and devoid of pity. And being dead, let birds on her take pity!
Lucius: [Sentencing Aaron's punishment] Set him breast-deep in earth and famish him. There let him stand and rave, and cry for food! If anyone relieves or pities him for the offence, he dies! This is our doom.
