Xena: "You okay?"
Gabrielle: "Yeah. Yeah, I did what I had to do. I rallied the troops."
Xena: "Gabrielle, I can see that you're in pain."

'Don't try to make me feel better about this'
Gabrielle: "Xena, don't, don't say that. Don't try to make me feel better about this. Half of my tribe lies dead on the beach. Now, I have to be as cold and ruthless as I can be. I'll do whatever I have to to keep these women alive."
Xena: "Let's end this now, then. You know what you have to do."

Xena: [at the backdoor of the castle] … "Bellerophon!"
Bellerophon: "Xena, when will you learn? I've already beaten you twice."
Xena: "It's once, but who's counting?"

Bellerophon: "Is that fear I see in your eyes, Warrior Princess?"

'So disappointing when a warrior falls short'
[Bellerophon gives Xena a damn good whooping. Xena calmly sheaths her sword, hops on Argo, and rides into the forest.]

Bellerophon: "So disappointing when a warrior falls short of your expectations … A horse … A horse!"

[Xena rides for a little while with Bellerophon and his troops hot on her trail. Eventually, she stops and faces her pursuers.]

Bellerophon: "Xena, what's the matter? Confronting your reputation?"
Xena: "No, confronting yours. And that wasn't fear you saw in my eyes before, it was disgust."

Xena: [with her sword at Bellerophon's throat] …"I killed your mother to save my daughter, and you killed the Amazons to avenge your mother, so the Amazons killed your soldiers. Why add one more name to the ranks of the dead? End it here, Bellerophon. Make the decision to walk away from the cycle of killing."
Bellerophon: "Or?"
Xena: "Or, I'll make the decision for you."

Bellerophon: [to Xena who is walking away from him in disgust] … "Oh, you forget, Xena, you can't kill me … [attacks with a dagger] … 'cause I'm a half-god!"
Xena: "You forget … [plunging her sword into his belly] … you're half mortal, too."

Xena: "It didn't have to end this way."
Bellerophon: "Oh, yes, it did."

'It's over'
[Meanwhile, the Amazons are kicking some serious soldier ass. Gabrielle gets little caught up in the mêlée and chases after an un-armed soldier.]

Xena: "Gabrielle! It's over."

Soldier: "Come on! Let's get out of here!"

'I don't think I did'
Xena: "You won."
Gabrielle: "I don't think I did. With each battle, I lose more of myself."
Xena: "War's tough on us all, Gabrielle."
Gabrielle: "Yeah."
Cyane: "Queen Gabrielle?"
Xena: "Your people need you."

'To a strong Amazon nation'
Gabrielle: [crosses arms with Varia] … "To a strong Amazon nation."
Amazons: "To a strong Amazon nation."
Xena: "To a strong Amazon nation."
Varia: "To a strong Amazon nation."
