Reg: And what have [the Romans] ever given us in return?!
Xerxes: The aqueduct?
Reg: What?
Xerxes: The aqueduct.
Reg: Oh, yeah. They did give us that. That's true. Yeah.
Commando: And the sanitation.
Loretta: Oh, yeah, the sanitation, Reg. Remember what the city used to be like?
Reg: Yeah. All right. I'll grant you the aqueduct and the sanitation are two things that the Romans have done.

Matthias: And the roads.
Reg: Well, yeah. Obviously the roads. I mean, the roads go without saying, don't they? But apart from the sanitation, the aqueduct, and the roads ...
Commandos: Irrigation.
Xerxes: Medicine.
Commandos: Huh? Heh? Huh ...
Commando: Education.
Commandos: Ohh ...
Reg: Yeah, yeah. All right. Fair enough.

Commando: And the wine.
Commandos: Oh, yes. Yeah ...
Francis: Yeah. Yeah, that's something we'd really miss, Reg, if the Romans left. Huh.
Commandos: Public baths.
Loretta: And it's safe to walk in the streets at night now, Reg.
Francis: Yeah, they certainly know how to keep order. Let's face it. They're the only ones who could in a place like this.
Commandos: Hehh, heh. Heh heh heh heh.
Reg: All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
