So ‘eunt’ is…?
BRIAN:
Ah, huh, third person plural, uh, present indicative. Uh, ‘they go’.
CENTURION:
But ‘Romans, go home’ is an order, so you must use the…?
BRIAN:

BRIAN:
Yes, sir. Thank you, sir. Hail Caesar, sir.
CENTURION:
Hail Caesar. If it’s not done by sunrise, I’ll cut your balls off.
BRIAN:
Oh, thank you, sir. Thank you, sir. Hail Caesar and everything, sir! Oh. Mmm!
