“What have the Romans ever done for us?” - Fortune

“What have the Romans ever done for us?”

Reg: All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Attendee: Brought peace?

Reg: Oh, peace - shut up!
