  • Commodus: If you're very good, tomorrow night I'll tell you the story of emperor Claudius who was betrayed by those closest to him, by his own blood. They whispered in dark corners and went out late at night and conspired and conspired but the emperor Claudius knew they were up to something. He knew they were busy little bees. And one night he sat down with one of them and he looked at her and he said, 'Tell me what you've been doing busy little bee or I shall strike down those dearest to you. You shall watch as I bathe in their blood.' And the emperor was heartbroken. The little bee had wounded him more deeply than anyone else could ever have done.
