Mark Antony: Married? Why should we want to do that of all things?
Atia of the Julii: Perhaps I love you.
Mark Antony: Ah. You're joking. For a moment there, you had me worried.

Atia of the Julii: Allied with my house you would have both coin and the nobility to make yourself king, if you wished it so.
Mark Antony: And you would be queen.
Atia of the Julii: I would be your loving and obedient wife.
Mark Antony: Only if I were willing to desert a friend. A man of your own blood.
Atia of the Julii: Too honorable for that, are you?
Mark Antony: I like to appear so.
Atia of the Julii: But I don't think you'd die for the sake of appearences.
Mark Antony: Why not?
Atia of the Julii: Well Caesar will die in any case, but you're far too clever to share his fate needlessly.
Mark Antony: I had not realised until now... what a wicked old harpy you really are.

Atia of the Julii: A large penis is always welcome!

"Rome: Passover (#2.1)" (2007)

Gaius Octavian: Mother, I must stay in Rome.

[On the morning of Caesar's funeral, Mark Anthony is still lying in bed]
Mark Antony: I don't think I ever fucked a woman in a funeral dress before.

[referring to Atia's elderly servant, who looks up startled]
Mark Antony: . Come here, old girl. Jump on!
[pats his crotch]
Atia of the Julii: She'd eat you alive. Come on, this is no morning for foolery. Just get up.

Gaius Octavian: Is it so late already! I overslept
Atia of the Julii: I don't care! What about the money?
Gaius Octavian: I've promised it. I'm sorry I didn't tell you before now, I knew you'd object. I've decided to enter public life, and it seem as a best way to introduce myself to the people
Mark Antony: That would be seen, as a direct challenge to ME!
Gaius Octavian: Yes, but that is not my intention at all. I suggest we make a public display of unity, to call such notions
Mark Antony: A public display of unity? But you...
Gaius Octavian: It makes sense. Our interests are conjoined, while you're a consul, my name, will lend weight to yours, and when your consulship is over and you retire from politics as you have promised, I will step in as leader of the Cesarion party
Mark Antony: I see.
Gaius Octavian: You will need protection from your enemies in the senate and I can provide that.
Mark Antony: [he angrily charges and grabs Octavian by the ears] WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?
Gaius Octavian: [fighting back] I'm Caesar's rightful heir!
Atia of the Julii: [holds Antony back] Would you stay calm! He doesn't have the money, so he can't give it away can he? This is all just childish talk.
Gaius Octavian: The money is legally mine! I was able to borrow against it!
Atia of the Julii: Borrow? How much did you borrow?
Gaius Octavian: It's not so much in the great scheme of things.
Mark Antony: [getting angrier] How much?
Gaius Octavian: Three million Sestertii!
[Atia gasps hysterically]
Mark Antony: Oh, Juno's... CUNT!

Atia of the Julii: What sort of woman is she?
Mark Antony: Who?
Atia of the Julii: The Egyptian girl.
Mark Antony: Oh her... barely met her. Skinny thing. Talks too much.
Atia of the Julii: Well, she must have something. To lure a cold fish like Caesar.
Mark Antony: She's a Queen. Caesar would have fucked Medusa if she'd worn a crown.

Atia of the Julii: [to Cleopatra, whispering] Die screaming, you pig spawned trollop.

Livia Drusilla: Excuse me...
Atia of the Julii: Yes?
Livia Drusilla: Oh, I don't mind really, but it is I who should go first. You will find if you consult the priests, the wife takes precedence.
Atia of the Julii: I don't give a fuck what the priests say. I'm not letting a vicious little trollop like you walk ahead of me!
[long pause]
Atia of the Julii: I go first.

Atia of the Julii: [to Livia] You are swearing now that some day... some day you will destroy me... Remember, far better women than you have sworn to do the same. Go and look for them now.

Atia of the Julii: Well, this is a merry do. Octavia, my honey, look alive at least. Poor Antony must think himself dead and swimming in Lethe water. Talk to the poor man, ask him questions.
[to Antony]
Atia of the Julii: One would think she'd been raised by Germans.
Octavia of the Julii: General Antony, does my mother's screaming irritate you?
Mark Antony: Excuse me?
Octavia of the Julii: When you and my mother are in coitus, there is a deal of screaming. I find it extremely irritating. I wondered whether you did also. Perhaps you like it. A testament to your skills.
