Batiatus: Whatever Tullius and the boy may think, I gained the primus on merit of Gannicus' prowess.
Titus: Even if true, it is of no matter now. Gannicus will not appear in the games.
Batiatus: But Varus has made personal request!
Titus: A necessary sacrifice, towards levelling unequal ground. You will make apology to Varus, relaying Gannicus found injury in training and that Vettius is amply capable of seeing the primus attended.
Batiatus: You give away the primus and now ask that I tongue the fucking boy's ass?
Titus: I ask nothing. This is how it will be.
