Lenard played the Commander; Warburton played the Centurion. I thought the topic under discussion at the moment was how to interpret the Centurion's line.
Ah, my mistake. I didn't realize it was the Centurion's line. Been a while.
I sorta agree with your point though, if I understand it. If the Centurion had stopped at "Our portion," then he would have meant something else. So, it does sorta play like maybe he was about to be disrespectful, but then catches himself and declares his obedience by extending his original statement, if that's what you mean. I always got that effect from it too; that's the actor giving it an extra and effective twist.
