"Your friend told me about, Lao Ma, her powers come from denial, from self-sacrifice, from the Light. That's not for people like you and me. I want to tap into the heart of darkness, the shear naked will behind all cravings, hatred and violence. I will become the face of death destroying not only a person's body, but their soul. Help me and I'll make you Destroyer of Nations."
"Xena, you and I love the same things ... we both live for power. So far, your power has been limited to a world of blood and sweat ... but imagine what you'd do if you had the spiritual force to match the power of your army. You'd be unstoppable. Anything would be within your reach ... Greece ... Egypt ... Rome ... Caesar."
"Son of Darkness, Enemy of the Land, come and curse the child that Xena carries within her. Make sure that he never experiences the love of either of his parents."
"Xena is Arminestra. She's an old, old friend of mine. Once I capture her and make her Power mine, I have everything that made her who she is ... Timeless ... and I will be the Destroyer of Nations."
"I'm so close to my goal. I knew one day that I would find the body to Xena's karma. I've been searching for it, hoping beyond Hope that I could take her Power, and now I've found it. She couldn't have done it alone. I have an enemy in the past and I don't know who it is."
"We have so much to catch up on. Lest time I saw you, you were killing me."
"The spiritual Power I was feeding on was nothing compared to this. Every person here has generations of Power just waiting for me to take, and do you know the key? ... Fear!"
"I'm in awe, Xena, I truly am. I see you found your friend, Gabrielle was it? Yes, she has a lot of Power. Her past lives have filled her. Soon that Power, your Power, will be mine."
"The people need to witness the death of their heroes, Shalti and Arminestra, on the stakes. But, don't worry, you'll die slow. I want to feel every delicious moment of your pain."
"What's she told you about me, little girl? Has she told you about my powers? Has she told you about this? ... That's my gift to you. That's your future. She's responsible for your death."
"Xena's little bitch ... welcome to the doghouse."
"You see, things aren't exactly the same as they are in your realm. Here, the strongest mind wins."
"You've got me all wrong. I don't want to hurt the baby any more than you so. I need it to be born. Fortunately, I don't need you."
"I'm going to count to ten, and during this you will feel your body shutting down. Your heart will stop. You will cease to breathe, and at the count of ten you will die ... one ... two ... three ... four ... sharp pains in your arms as your blood pressure lowers ... six ... your brain is screaming ... seven ... eight ... nine ... one more count you will be dead ... ten."
"I've always wanted to be inside of you, Xena."
"Such a pleasure to see you again, Xena. Or should I call you ‘mommy'?
"Well, at least we'll be together again. I've so missed these intimate little moments."
"Now the real fun starts."
