We’re totally like the Fybertech Triumvirate like Caesar, Crassus, and Pompey. We’ll get along fine for a while, get famous, and run things, but then they’ll be jealousy one of us will die at Carrhae and then somebody’ll cross the fucking Rubicon and we’ll have site wars and it’ll be great. I think my major is showing.

"Crossing the Rubicon" was a good episode of Beast Wars.

Pretty much here’s the story of the First Triumvirate of Rome (In all honesty, I’m not super good with Roman culture so this may be wrong or not completely accurate so if you take this post for your information instead of a textbook that would be fairly dumb).
First Crassus and Popmpey were in the senate and both fairly well known and influential, but not on friendly terms. Eventually Caesar comes along and gets them to make up and form the triumvirate so they can run things at Rome. Caesar and Crassus were pretty good friends, but to get Pompey to be a team player Caesar gave Pompey his daughter to marry. They pretty much ran the joint, but Popmpey weren’t too happy with how chummy Crassus and Caesar was and how Caesar was getting mad props for a lot of military campaigns. Eventually Crassus died in battle, while Popmpey was in power and the alliance kind of ended. There was a civil war that started when Caesar took hi army across the Rubicon River in Italy in essence going to war against Rome so he could take power. Allegedly after crossing Caesaer said “the die is cast” meaning there was no turning back and that pretty much the shit was gonna hit the fan.

After that, Pompey made a royal screw-up and lost a major decisive battle to Caesar and his much much smaller army. Pompey then had to escape the nation, and he figured that the safest place would be Egypt, where reigned one of the Ptolemies, who at the time was trying to steal the throne from his sister Cleopatra and keep it out of the hands of his other sister whose name doesn't occur to me right now. Ptolemy's advisor (whose name i also can't remember) had heard of Pompey's bad standing with Caesar, and killed the general when he arrived in Cairo. This disgusted and disappointed Caesar, who wanted to kill Pompey with his own hands. Caesar went back to Rome and had Pompey buried formally, and that spelt the true end of the Triumvirate.

And i might mention that before becoming triumvirs, all three men were pretty powerful. Crassus was the richest man in Rome, Pompey was an esteemed war hero, and Caesar was Pontifex Maximus i think.

Also, fibber, i think "crossing the rubicon" is a metaphor or whatever you want to call it meaning "passing the point of no return", as per what vito just explarned.

...Now, uh, why are we talking about this again?

I think that makes me Crassus. I'd say 'power through money' in latin, but I don't remember shit from those classes.

It was the episode in which Black Arachnia used the transmetal driver on herself and died, then coming back to life as the transmetal 2 good guy(girl) version.  So I guess the metaphor still works, even if her new self was arguably not as cool as the way she had been all along~!
