I am six minutes into the newest episode of Rome, and I just have to say: HOLY GOD I LOVE THIS SHOW. HOLY GOD. HOLY GOD. HOLY GOD. I DO NOT CARE IF WINGED HORSES START FLYING OUT OF POMPEY'S ASS AND NEON SIGNS SPROUT UP ON THE FORUM SAYING "OMG MARCUS IS FINEEEEE."

HOLY SWEET BABY JESUS.



Atia, upper-class, socially ambitious mother. "What are you doing?"

Boy and sister look up, sister with a trace of worry on her face. Boy is painting the toenails of his very pretty sister, which OK, is awesome in and of itself. In the previous episode, Momma was fretting over the fact that he seemed not to be fucking every slavegirl in sight. And um, took rather drastic measures in an effort to remedy this that included feeding him some unusual substances.

Boy, smiling and weilding brush. Sister is ravishingly pretty and has her foot placed out in front of her. They're both sitting on the floor. "It's rather fun. There's quite an art to it."

Mother. "Strange boy." She comes to sit by them.

"I've just heard a very strange tale about you -- " touches the boy on the arm -- "From the kitchen staff. For what possible reason, I wonder, would you and Caesar be skulking about in a cupboard?"

Boy. "What? We were -- it was nothing."

Mother, who is just beaming. "Nothing? It doesn't sound like nothing. You seduced him, you sly little fox."




It gets better after that, of course, but here is the key part: the boy in question OCTAVIAN AHAAHAHA FUTURE AUGUSTUS CAESAR AHAHAHAH OMG. OMG. OMG. I know that means nothing very little to you, so uh, just enjoy the fact that this is the mother and this is the boy. Isn't he pretty? You may recognize him from the Master & Commander movie, I'm told.

The transcript does NO justification to the sheer, howling, amazingness of that scene. You should be watching Rome, people. You need to be watching Rome. It is plentiferously available through various means.
