Season 4 ...
"It's over...or is it? Xena, do you ever get the feeling that sometimes nothing is ever really over? You know, it just keeps coming back around, but it's wearing a different face. It's the same underneath."
"Oh, you want a piece of me, huh? Fine...I'll give you a piece of me."
"Yeah, after all these years of watching you slaughter nature's creatures, I think I can do this. Look, I don't want you near the food. A lice infested rabbit is not on my diet."
"My stomach feels like Monday morning in Tartarus."
"She (Argo) doesn't like me, does she? What is it? Is it my personality, my hair color...the fact I talk about her like she's a real person."
"I don't know if my lice has fungus, or my fungus has lice."
"The despair of Winter is followed by the hope of Spring. The infernal heat of Summer abolished by a gentle Autumn breeze. Life's brutal Truths are softened by its tender mercies."
"My writing has allowed me to express my most inner feelings. I don't know how I'd survive without it. I wish you had something like that, Xena."
"More hot sand. Touring the world is sure tough on shoes."
"Some people say that an unexamined life is not worth living."
"If you're looking for perfection, we all fall short."
"Xena's dark side frightens me. I need to move on, but I could never live with someone who killed her. There would be no going back from there."
"You're so close to being this ultimate force of Goodness, but that little bit makes you so wrong."
"The threat of a battle does not mean I'm going to end up like your ‘vision.' Xena, you're expecting Medusa behind every tree. You can't look left, you can't look right."
"No, Xena, this hospital is well protected. It's in the center of the city. It doesn't need me hiding in it."
"Xena, I don't believe in your ‘vision.' I can't afford to. Now, either I prove you wrong and we go on from here or I prove you right and we die. But either way, I will not continue like this."
"Funny thing about Destiny, you can't ignore it, you can't rely on it ... Alti promised you one, didn't she?"
"Xena, you're not the same person you were back them. You know more about yourself now."
"Xena, she doesn't want to come because she doesn't remember. When she's in her mother's arms she'll know that she belongs there. How can that be wrong?"
"I thought that she deserved to know her family, to be able to make a choice. I thought that she would be happier with them than the Horde, but now I don't know."
"You know, you'd think I'd learn not to meddle with families."
"I did all that? And they call you the hero?"
"I woke up ... I took a bath ... I know I put my shirt on that tree ... it's just gone. Well, It doesn't make any sense ... unless an animal took it ... you know, a fashion sensible beaver, or ... or ... oh, you didn't."
"Xena, give me the pan before you hurt someone with it."
"What do you want from me? My skirt? My boots? My underwear? Heh-heh."
"After all we've been through, that's what you think of me? The Fairy God's Sister of dishes? Xena, is that my only use to you? ... You have no idea how useful I am. I'm outta here. That's it. I need space."
"I just wonder if maybe your fighting for Good has more to do with the ‘fighting' part than the ‘Good' part."
"It's funny, I come to places like this, you know, spiritual places, looking for some sort of answer. It makes you wonder. Instead of reaching out, maybe we should be looking in."
"I sometimes talk about your Darkness like it's some sort of disease. But without it, neither one of us would be here. It's kind of ironic ... Do I really have hands like a sailor?"
"India is so different, and yet, there's this connection too, you know? It's so exotic ... so mysterious ... so ... look! (man walking on hot coals) ... maybe that's India's way of rolling out the red carpet."
"That's alright. When you're crippled and old and I'm doing head stands, I'll remind you of this."
"Whatever this is, it wasn't bad, Xena. How could it be? It was beautiful. I healed. That is all I have ever wanted to do. That is all I have ever dreamed about doing. Now that I have this ability, I think I understand that Power, the Power to control life ... and death."
"Yoga? We're going to do yoga? As in you and me ... okay, who are you and what have you done with Xena?"
"I just know you have doubts about me, and I tell you that this Power is Good, that it's my Calling. Instead of being happy for me, you think that I'm Evil."
As Tataka: "An exorcism? Really, Xena, now don't you think that's the pot calling the kettle ... you want me out, you're going to have to kill this sweet, little body to do it ... and I don't think you can."
"I know the Power I had with my healing, and I know it was bad, but I think that because it exists there has to be another Power out there, maybe for Good ... and stronger."
"I'm glad to see you're getting into the swing of things, Xena. There's a lot to be said for emersing yourself into the culture of a new land."
"This ‘karma' that you're talking about, can you see mine? Can you see how much Xena is a part of that?"
"Xena, in this lifetime the Mother of peace would be a goddess to me. That's a hero."
"Xena, Alti was Evil. Why should we believe anything she showed us? The Mendi contains the truth. I wish there was some way we could do that again just so we can really know."
"You know what she said? She said that your karma and mine are intertwined."
"Hanuman, no offense, you see Xena and I aren't used to waiting around for the gods to bail us out."
"Xena, do you think I could've understood the power of selfless love if it weren't for our friendship?"
"All rivers run into the sea. We'll end up in the same place, I'm sure of it."
"Sophocles is the master of prose, of feeling, of plumbing the emotional depths of human existence."
"That's it! Who cares who sees my play as long as the right people see it. This warlord, he wants to hear my message of peace. That's who my play speaks to. Fantastic! It's the artist's dream."
"I have inner peace ... I can work with amateurs ... in with Love, out with Hate ... in with Love, out with Hate ..."
"Look, if you don't like my message, then you can all take off. No good playwright would have her art reduced to garbage for the sake of a few dinars!"
"I have an announcement to make. A message means nothing if no one hears it ... a flower in the forest is just a plant if no one sees it ... we're gonna need more blood. I want more skin. I want action. I want weapons. I want battlefields with beaten, bloody bodies. We're gonna take this little flower and we're gonna cram it down their throats for their own good!"
"‘Kill them all! Kill them all!!!' ... You see? It's from the back of the throat. It's much more guttural. You have to believe the anger, the hatred for life. Now, make that audience shiver."
"Put the hot-tub center stage. I want the audience to get an eyeful ... Paulina, Paulina, no no no, you have to scream wildly like you can't wait to hack him into pieces before you chop his head off. 'This is for you Humongous, you vile bastard.' Do you get it? ... What am I doing? All this sex, blood, violence. Have I gone crazy? ... Crazy like a fox. I want more blood. Let's make it gushing!"
"Somebody stop them (a fleeing Zhera & Milo) ... interactive theater, everybody, join in!"
"No one wants to be preached to, they have to experience things for themselves."
"My place is with Xena."
"Isn't it better to have peaceful people around who do good than people who fight?"
"It's funny, it seems that when push comes to shove sometimes the only choice is to shove back. But with this path that I'm on, I can't do that."
"You know, if she were short enough she could have been stabbed through the key hole."
"‘In your tribe' doesn't matter here. This is my tribe."
"When you need to make a decision, think of Ephiny. Do what she would do."
"I had a choice to do nothing, or to save my friend. I chose the way of Friendship."
"Xena, you brought out the best in me. Before I met you, no one saw me for who I was. I felt invisible. But, you saw all the things that I could be. You saved me, Xena."
"Xena, life is eternal. It has no beginning and no end. The loving friends we meet on our journey return to us time after time. We never die because we were never really born."
