Gaius Octavian Caesar: You should know that when we are married, I shall on occasion beat you. With my hand... A light whip... When I do so you must not think you have offended me. I do it because it gives me sexual pleasure. So remember that and don't be upset.
Livia Drusilla: Yes sir...
Gaius Octavian Caesar: [pause] I think we should get along very well.
