I loved the campfire scene when Esca asks Marcus why the Eagle means so much to him, and Marcus explains how it is a symbol of Rome's accomplishments and that everywhere it goes, they can proudly say "Rome did that." Esca doesn't seem to buy it, so Marcus says, "You wouldn't understand. How could you?" Esca gives him a look and then describes how the Romans killed his parents and brothers to take their land and says, "Rome also did that." Channing does a really good job reacting to that line with his facial expression. It is difficult thing to pull off.
