—Another one attributed to Caligula

Sheogorath: More tea, Pelly my dear?
Pelagius the Mad: Oh, I couldn't. Goes right through me. Besides, I have so many things to do. So many undesirables to contend with, naysayers, buffoons, detractors... Why, my headsman hasn’t slept in three days!
Sheogorath: You are far too hard on yourself, my dear, sweet, homicidally-insane Pelagius. What would the people do without you? Dance? Sing? Smile? (giggles) Grow old?
