Caligula: Go in peace. I was thinking about killing you, but I've changed my mind.
[Caligula has recovered from his illness]
Caligula: I was never really ill. I was undergoing a metamorphosis.
Claudius: Oh... was it painful?
Caligula: It was like a birth... in which the mother delivers herself.
Claudius: Oh. It must have been painful.
[Claudius returns to Drusilla and Herod, after visiting Caligula, who has proclaimed himself a god]
Claudius: [to Drusilla] He wants to see you.
Claudius: He's become a god.
Claudius: Oh, you're a god, too.
Claudius: We're not.
