* Over the years, Ilythia and Crixus have tried to kill Lucretia and her father-in-law tried to ''strangle her.'' They fail. Lucretia, ultimately, has to ''throw herself off a cliff'' to kill herself. The only person able to actually finish off Lucretia... is Lucretia herself, in a murder/suicide.

cliff...whilst singing "My Cock Rages On", of course
* Episode 1 "Past Transgressions": Poor Diona and Naevia scurrying after Batiatus trying to finish dressing him whilst he struts about ranting, apparently oblivious to them.
* Episode 3 "Paterfamilias": Batiatus begins making out with Gaia to celebrate their outwitting of Vettius, whilst Lucretia watches and pleasures herself. Suddenly, the curtain is dramatically pulled back to reveal [[ParentsWalkInAtTheWorstTime Batiatus's dad]]. Cue everyone looking horrified (especially Lucretia) and scrambling to reclaim some dignity, while Titus is clearly already despairing over the state of his ludus.


Added DiffLines:

* Episode 7 "Sacramentum": Although it's a serious moment, the scene in which Sedullus and the other rebels get into a fight has some comedic value, mostly because of Crixus. When Agron and Sedullus first start fighting, Crixus just watches them with a reaction between amusement and exasperation, clearly thinking '[[BoisterousBruiser The Germans]] are at it again'. Then, Naevia walks out, bloodied and tearful Sedullus having tried to rape her makes eye contact with Crixus and whispers Sedullus' name. You can literally see Crixus [[{{Beat}} pause]] to put two-and-two together...and then he goes ''completely'' berserk. And then EVERYONE starts fighting each other.


Added DiffLines:

* Episode 9 "The Dead and the Dying": Tiberius, who has spent most of the episodes leading up this as an insufferable SmugSnake, struts into Pompey's tent to speak with him on behalf on his father...only to be greeted with Spartacus instead. [[OhCrap His reaction]] is ''priceless''.


-->'''Fugitive:''' Im not dying in the pits. I'll show these fucking cunts my cock was forged in Vulcan's ''flames!'' '''''I'll [[PunctuatedForEmphasis FUCK. THEM. ALL!!]]''''' ('' SmashCut to him getting smacked in the face with a hammer, followed a another beating that ends with his face getting cut off and worn as a trophy.)''

Added DiffLines:

** Batiatus announcing that Spartacus and Crixus would be fighting Theokeles cues ominous looks from Oenomaus and Crixus. Spartacus, having no idea who that is, just looks over at Crixus and puts on a face that just says ThisIsGonnaSuck.
** Then the scene cuts to an one armed old man being forced to "dance" on a table by the other gladiators, while Crixus exchanges a DeathGlare with Spartacus from across the room.
--> '''Varro:''' I think you two make a fine couple.
** Llithyia's excited to hear about the upcoming match, namely in the prospect of seeing blood pour from Spartacus. Cue SmashCut to Spartacus spilling BloodFromTheMouth from a strike from Oenamaus.


* Episode 4 "The Thing in the Pit": Spartacus starts talking to Varro and his hallucination of Sura at the same time, making the conversation very confusing for Varro.
* Episode 5: "Shadow Games": Gnaeus collapses from heat exhaustion. When Pietros brings water, Oenomaus tells him to spare it for more worthy men. Cue Pietros walking away from a fainted Gnaeus.

** The exchange between Gnaeus and Crixus. Gaeus briefly laughs when he discovers they are to face off and warns "I will fuck your corpse". Crixus jovially replies "With what cock?"; both of them resume laughing.

** Speaking of Oenomaus, Varro throws him into the scenario where he stops Spartacus from throwing the sword and it ends with him and Sura both dying. Spartacus then takes one look at a wandering Oenomaus.
--> '''Spartacus:''' ...[[DidNotThinkThisThrough I had not considered him.]]\\
'''Varro:''' You have not considered many things. Take pause, I beg of you.

Added DiffLines:

* Spartacus is nearby a huge wooden door with a burning rope holding it up. He sees the Romans charging at him, Caesar in the lead. With a smile, Spartacus rolls under the door just as the rope burns and breaks, dropping it down to cut him off from the Romans who literally run into it.

* Episode 8 "Mark of the Brotherhood": When the new recruits are ordered to undress, ''everyone's'' reaction to Segovax amounts to, "Holy shit, that guy's dick is '''huge'''." Varro says he's betting on "the one with the horse-cock".

* Episode 8 "Balance": Mira walking in on Agron and Nasir trying to have sex while on guard duty. [[YaoiFangirl Not that she seems to mind.]]
** The best part of that scene is that after being caught, Agron and Nasir spend about 5 minutes going "Um..we were..uh" and generally looking like schoolchildren caught making out under the bleachers.
