Maternal Instincts
- Page 5 -

The loss of her child, the betrayal of her best friend, why bother?
Ephiny: "Xena, it's Ephiny ... Xena, please."
Xena: "Go away."
Ephiny: "Xena, Callisto's coming. We need your help."
Xena: "Go Away."

Hope: "Mommy?"
Gabrielle: "What are you doing here? I thought I told you to wait in Kaleipus' hut."
Hope: "I know, but it was awful. I couldn't stay. I was scared."
Gabrielle: "Why? What did you do?"
Hope: "I ran. As soon as I got there and saw that boy dead I ran and hid."
Gabrielle: "Hope, are you saying that he was already dead when you entered the hut?"
Hope: "I thought Callisto did it, so I got scared and ran away."
Gabrielle: "Of course, it had to be Callisto. You said that she's after the children, right?"
Hope: "She is. So, please, can we go now? I don't want to die like Solan?"
Gabrielle: "How did you know his name was Solan?"
Hope: "You said so, remember? Now, please, can we go?"
Gabrielle: "... Yes, yes we'll go."

Having a really bad day
Callisto: "It hurts, doesn't it? Losing your family rips out your heart and your guts and your feelings until all that's left is the pain. Right? Welcome to the club."

Callisto: "You'd like to kill me. Wish you could."

Callisto: "Why drag this out? Can't you see that I bring the gift of oblivion ... Come out, come out, wherever you are ... I promise it won't hurt ... much."

Give it up, Xena

Callisto: "Dead end."
Xena: "You got that right. It all ends here with me."

Callisto: "You don't seem to get it, do you? You've won. All these years I've spent living to destroy you. Thinking that only if I could give you the same pain that you gave me I'd be rid of it and life would go on. And then I do and nothing changes. I don't feel better ... just empty. So you let me go Xena. You can't win this battle and you've already won the war."
Xena: "It's not that simple. I won't let it be."
Calling the whole thing off

Callisto: "I'm warning you, Xena. You're nothing to me now."
Xena: "You're breaking my heart."
Callisto: "Walk away."
Xena: "Go to Tartarus."

Callisto: "You'll trap us both! That's your plan?! To trap me here while my pain keeps growing and growing and yours ends."
Xena: "You're wrong, Callisto. You let your pain kill you years ago. I'm going to live with mine."

Not accepting any excuses this time
Gabrielle: "If I had just done what you said, when you told me to do it, then they would still be alive, Kaleipus and Solan."
Xena: "No. Don't you even speak his name."
Gabrielle: "Xena ..."
Xena: "No. You lied to me. I trusted you and you lied to me. And now, Solan is dead. My son is dead ... because of you."
Gabrielle: "I love you Xena."
