    Well in the film the expression for "Romans go home" was Romanes eunt domus. However if you disagree with that, then how about:

    Tories vade in domum tuam ?

    I beg to differ
    ": What's this, then? 'Romanes Eunt Domus'? 'People called Romanes they go the house"

    Romani ite donum was the correct version

    I never said it was the correct version, hence the inverted commas used in my original post. It was meant to be a parody of the expression used in 'The Life of Brian'.
