Quintus Quotes in Gladiator (2000)
Commodus: Rise. Rise.
[Maximus stands up, clenching an arrow head in his right hand]
Commodus: Your fame is well deserved, Spaniard. I don't think there's ever been a gladiator to match you. As for this young man, he insists you are Hector reborn. Or was it Hercules? Why doesn't the hero reveal himself and tell us all your real name? You do have a name.
Maximus: My name is Gladiator.
[turns away from Commodus]
Commodus: How dare you show your back to me! Slave, you will remove your helmet and tell me your name.
Maximus: [removes helmet and turns around to face Commodus] My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the TRUE emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.
[Commodus trembles in disbelief]
[Praetorians point their spears at the gladiators while the Colosseum crowd chants for them to live. Commodus shakes his head and motions the crowd for silence. He then raises his fist and reluctantly gives the thumbs-up signal]

Maximus: Quintus, look at me. Look at me! Promise me that you'll look after my family.
Quintus: Your family will meet you in the afterlife.

Maximus: Prudent? The Emperor has been slain.
[Maximus is about to ride out with the cavalry to fight the barbarians]
Quintus: Soldier! I told you to move those catapults forward. They're out of range.
Maximus: Range is good.
Quintus: The danger to the cavalry...
Maximus: Is acceptable. Agreed?
[deleted scene - the ghosts of Secundus, Quartus, and Sextus are standing in the crater next to an unconcious Yvaine]
Secundus: With all due respect to father, that window thing was a rotten trick!
Sextus: Excuse me? At least you had a chance! Quartus murdered me while I was asleep!
Quartus: How many times do I have to tell you? It was Septimus!
[the ghost of Tertius, recently poisoned, appears]
Quartus: [to Tertius] Don't speak - don't say a word! Let me guess; Septimus?
Tertius: [shrugs, then notices the stone lying next to Yvaine] The stone!
[tries to pick it up and fails]
Tertius: I can touch it! I can feel it, I just can't *shift* it! It's like it's too heavy...
[looks up at his brothers, tearfully]
Tertius: You look like a bunch of FREAKS!
Secundus: Hold on... there are five of us now! We could do it together!
Quintus: We *tried* it before - it didn't work!
Secundus: But Tertius wasn't here, there were only four of us! Come on!
[all of them gather around the stone and grab it, attempting to lift it - unbeknownst to them, Yvaine sits up]
Tertius, Secundus, Quartus, Sextus, Quintus: Come on... yes, yes... come on!
[all groan and give up]
Tertius, Secundus, Quartus, Sextus, Quintus: No...
[Yvaine sees the stone and goes to pick it up]
Tertius, Secundus, Quartus, Sextus, Quintus: No, no, no, no! No, no, no, no, no, no! N -
[she picks it up]
Tertius, Secundus, Quartus, Sextus, Quintus: Awww...
[Yvaine fastens it around her neck]
Tertius, Secundus, Quartus, Sextus, Quintus: No! Nononononono! Please! Aw.
Quartus: [sighing] Well done, everyone.
[all of them sigh and collapse - Tertius lies down in Quintus' lap]
Quartus: No, you were right, though - it was definately better with five of us.
Quartus: I mean, that's the closest we've come to actually *moving* anything!
[Tertius, in Quintis' lap, looks irritated. Quintus looks down at him]
