"Kill them all".
Sura, her final words to her husband before he left for war

Batiatus: What would you do to hold your wife again? To feel the warmth of her skin, to taste her lips? Would you kill?
Spartacus: Whoever stood between us.
Batiatus: How many men? A hundred? A thousand?
Spartacus: I would kill them all.
Batiatus: Then do it in the arena! Fight for me and the honor of my forefathers! Prove yourself. Climb to the pinnacle, gain your freedom and that of the woman you lost!
Spartacus: I did not lose her. She was taken from me.
Batiatus: A man must accept his fate or be destroyed by it.
Spartacus: Why would I place my fate in the hands of another Roman?
Batiatus: Because of what they hold. (holds up Sura's ribbon) Your wife's? Pass the final test, tonight. With honor and servitude. Call me Dominus. And I will help to reunite you. (places ribbon in Spartacus' hand) The choice is yours.

"I commit my flesh. My mind. My will. To the glory of this ludus, and the commands of my master, Batiatus. I swear to be burned, chained, beaten, or die by the sword, in pursuit of honor in the arena."
The Sacramentum Gladiatorum, the oath all slaves who are inducted into Batiatus' gladiatorial brotherhood are required to recite as they receive their brands.
