Ben-Hur (1959)

[taps his head]
Sextus: How do you fight an idea?

Centurion: There's a Jew outside. He wants to see the Tribune Messala.
Messala: I assume he has a name.
Centurion: [sneeringly] He says he's a prince, Prince Judah Ben-Hur.
Messala: [loud and quickly] Then treat him like one!
[quietly]
Messala: Tell him I'll join him.
[the centurion starts to leave, and Messala shouts again]
Messala: CENTURION!
[Again quietly]
Messala: This was his country before it was ours. Don't forget that.
Centurion: Yes, Tribune.
[the centurion then goes out]
