Terence Longdon: Drusus
1st Jailer : [looking in records] Miriam, wife... Tirzah, daughter.
Drusus : Yes, they're the ones. Are they alive?
1st Jailer : [examining the records, he is pessimistic] East section... lower level. Cell two. The jailer in that wing will know.
[Drusus is led down various passages into the lower dungeons]
Drusus : How long since you've seen them?
2nd Jailer : Never - and I've been here three years. But they're alive, all right.
2nd Jailer : [after demonstrating a slot in the bottom of the cell door] The food disappears.
Servant : [Presenting a gift] For the Tribune. With the compliments of Quintus Arrius. He awaits your pleasure.
Messala : The consul here?
Servant : It is Quintus Arrius the Younger, tribune.
Messala : Thank him. Bring him to me.
Drusus : I didn't know the consul had a son.
Messala : I've heard of the young Arrius. He's a champion of the great circus. Why is he here presenting me with gifts?
Drusus : Perhaps he will race against you in the games.
Messala : [opens the box and takes out a dagger] Look.
Drusus : It's magnificent.
Messala : And from a man I've never met!
Judah Ben-Hur : [enters] You're wrong, Messala.
Judah Ben-Hur : What has become of my mother and my sister?
Messala : It is not my duty to keep track of prisoners.
Judah Ben-Hur : Find them, Messala. Restore them to me and I will forget what I vowed with every stroke of that oar you chained me to.
Messala : I am not the governor of Judea. I can do nothing without Gratus' approval.
Judah Ben-Hur : Then get it! I will come back tomorrow. Don't disappoint me, Messala.
Messala : What became of them?
Drusus : It's been almost five years. Do you suppose they're still alive?
Messala : Go to the citadel, Drusus. Find out.
Drusus : And if they're dead?
Messala : They're dead!
