- Alternate Character Interpretation: it is not Hortensius who Heel Face Turned to Cicero's side, but Cicero who Face Heel Turned to side with Hortensius and the aristocrats.
- Complete Monster: Catilina, or so Tiro would have us believe.
- Crowning Moment of Awesome: Cicero's speech about Verres' crimes in Imperium which leads to such loud cheering that the awnings that are covering the forum fall down from the noise.
- Cicero's opening speech as consul, derailing Magnificent Bastard Caesar's plan completely
- Magnificent Bastard: Caesar; Crassus on occasion. Cicero himself manages it once or twice.
