* HollywoodDensity: A metal cauldron filled to the brim with silver coins would be rather heavy, but Asterix can carry it without using the magic potion, and [[spoiler:Redbeard manages to survive the cauldron falling on his head from the top of a cliff without serious injury]].

The two first check the local Roman camp of Compendium, only to find they don't have the money (and accidentally start a mutiny when the legionaries assume they now have to pay to be in the Legion rather than ''being'' paid). They run into the pirates (who, after being run aground by the Gauls during a previous encounter, have decided to convert their ship into a restaurant), but after beating them up, they learn that they don't have the money either (and persuade them to get out of the restaurant business and go back to sea). Heading to the nearest city, Condatum (called Rennes today), they try commerce (selling wild boars), and manage to crash the market value of pork by their poor understanding of economics. They try gambling, and just lose money. They try gladiatorial combat, only to find that the magic potion makes their victories so easy that they put the arena owner out of business. They try working in the theater, only to get their entire troupe arrested when Obelix shouts "These Romans are crazy!" in the presence of a high ranking official. They even resort to robbing a bank, only to find the bank empty due to Caesar's new taxes.

The village is visited by Chief Whosemoralsarelastix, a known Roman collaborator. Saying that Caesar is planning to raise taxes to fund new wars, he brought his village's treasury to the sole unconquered village in Gaul in a cauldron (that had recently held onion soup, giving the coins a distinctive odor) for safekeeping. After entrusting the cauldron to Asterix, the village holds a feast for the visiting chief and sends him on his way.

* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: Laurensolivius' play is built to [[TakeThatAudience shock and offend]]. The prefect gets way too offended once a stage frightened Obelix goes "These Romans are crazy" and orders an arrest of the actors.
