Elizabeth Taylor as CLEOPATRA: And I am Cleopatra, queen, daughter of Isis!
JULIUS CAESAR: If I say so and when I say so, you are what I say you are, nothing more.
CLEOPATRA: Hail Caesar!
JULIUS CAESAR: You, a descendant of generations of inbred, incestuous mental defectives, how dare you call anyone barbarian.
JULIUS CAESAR: Daughter of an idiotic flute-playing drunkard who bribed his way to the throne.
CLEOPATRA: Your price was too high, remember?
Rex Harrison as JULIUS CAESAR: I've had my fill with the smug condescension of you worn-out pretenders,
parading on the ruins of your past glories.
CLEOPATRA: The future concerns me.
JULIUS CAESAR: Then keep out of my affairs and do as I say.
CLEOPATRA: Do as you say? Literally? As if I were something you had conquered?
JULIUS CAESAR: If I choose to regard you as such.
CLEOPATRA: Am I to understand then that you feel free to do with me whatever you want, whenever you want?
JULIUS CAESAR: Yes, I want that understood.
CLEOPATRA: Won't you at least wear your laurel wreath so I can be reminded it's the divine Caesar that honors me so?
JULIUS CAESAR: You talk too much.
CLEOPATRA: I promise you you won't like me this way.
