      • Guard: (Having shown Messalina her death warrant) I'm to offer you the dagger first, if you'll have it. Then to cut off your pretty head and put it on a spear.
        Messalina: No. Nooo! Not my head! Not my head!

      • Messalina: Out of my way, you Greek. You dare to stand between me and my husband?
        Narcissus: Which husband, you whore, which one?!

      • Scylla: The difference between you and me, actor, is you're a snob and I'm not. {Points to Messalina} And the difference between this great lady and myself is that my work is her hobby. My hobby happens to be gardening, for which I don't expect to be paid.

      • Mnester: Permit me to introduce myself. My name is Mnester. I am an actor. Most people have heard of me.
        Scylla: My name is Scylla and I'm a whore. Everybody's heard of me.

      • {About the prostitute Scylla}
        Mnester: They say she boards a ship at Ostia, works the whole crew and then walks off steadier than any one of them.
