'Just wanna chat'
[Xena flings Seraphin up over the edge of the cliff past Callisto. She then somersaults back up to solid ground.]

Callisto: "Oh, well done, Xena! I'm not here to fight with you, Xena. Just wanna chat."
Xena: "Let me guess … things didn't work out with Hope quite the way you expected."
Callisto: "No, actually. The sight of her and Ares rolling around like weasels made me sick."
Gabrielle: "Hope and Ares?"
Callisto: "Yes, Gabrielle, it seems your daughter is in heat."

'So, you're switching sides ... again'
Xena: "So, you're switching sides … again."
Callisto: "For a price. I help you put Dahak back in bottle, and you help me die. I figure you got a beat on that Hind's blood dagger. Hercules probably told you where it was. It can kill a god, you know."

Callisto: "So, how about it? I scratch your back, you stab mine."
Xena: "What's the matter? Existence getting to be a bit of a burden?"
Callisto: "Yes, honestly. I yearn for oblivion … annihilation … peace, if you will."
Xena: "You helped that demon kill my son, and you think I'm going to help you find peace?"
Callisto: "Then I'll just go back and do Hope's bidding."
Xena: "Do that. I've beaten you before. I can beat you again."

[Seraphin pushes free of Gabrielle's grasp and takes off running away from the trio.]

Gabrielle: "Seraphin!"
Xena: "Let her go. She'll only slow us down. She's doomed anyway if we can't stop Hope."

Xena: [to Callisto] … "May you live forever."

'It's gone'
Hope: [discovering that the Hind's blood dagger is not where she thought Hercules hid it] … "It's gone."

Joxer: "That's far enough. Release those people or you will be sorry."
Priest: "Who are you?"
Joxer: "Joxer the Mighty."
Priest: "Never heard of you. Step aside or suffer the wrath of Dahak."
Joxer: "Dahak? The 'one great evil' Dahak? You workin' for him? Good benefits? It's funny--"
Seraphin: [clubs poor, unsuspecting Joxer from behind] … "Come. Let us give these sacrifices to our lord."

Callisto: "Look, I know about Ares' deal with the Fates. After Hope dies, you're not going to be around much longer, and we can help each other out, right? You know where that dagger is, don't you? You could just use it and do the job on me."
Xena: "I could, but I won't."
Callisto: "No, you want it for Ares. You're willing to take Ares out to get to Hope. Well, why not let me help you? And then it would be so simple to just turn it on me."
Xena: "Because I like the idea of you living with your suffering."
Callisto: "Oh, please! Who said anything about suffering? Really, it's more of a boredom thing … an emptiness, really."

Callisto: "Anyway, I'm really disappointed in you, Xena. The sensible thing would be to enlist me on your side. You're taking this far, far too personal."
Gabrielle: "You know, she's right."
Xena: "What?!"

Gabrielle: "Remember what you said about staying focused? You're letting your anger get in the way her, Xena. It's best if we let her help us."
Xena: "… alright."

Joxer: "Ow! Geesh! Ooh, jumped by a hundred guys. Why, if I ever find the … Hi, Gabby. Oh! Boy, am I ever glad to see you. Hey, where's Xena?"
Hope: "We're close, aren't we?"
Joxer: "Yeah, I'd say so. Now, look, Dahak and his guys are--"
Hope: "We've known each other for … how long now?"
Joxer: "I don't know, a couple of years? Look … if we can get a small band together--"
Hope: "You know me pretty well, don't you?"
Joxer: "Yeah, I'd say so … a small band together--"
Hope: "Better than anyone? Other than Xena, of course."
Joxer: "Yeah, like I say, we're pretty close … Now, I'll come up from behind--"
Hope: "I want to talk to you about our relationship."
Joxer: "You wanna … you mean like in you and me?"
Hope: "Just like that."
Joxer: "Wait a minute. You … you wanna know how I feel about our relationship?"
Hope: "I want to know how you feel about me."
Joxer: "Well, I … I … it's a really big question … I … I, uh … I feel … um … well, I feel, uh …"

'There wasn't enough love in her to let me live'
Hope: "Would you call it 'love'?"
Joxer: "Well, uh … that's a huge word. But, I, uh … I think I have a nosebleed." … [walks a few paces away]
Hope: "Strange. There wasn't enough love in her to let me live. Yet, people love her."

Hope: "What would you make of my feelings towards Xena?"
Joxer: "Xena? … Well, you know, you love her more than anybody in the whole world."
Hope: "More than anyone."

'Never mind'
Hope: "Has Xena told you about the Hind's blood dagger?"
Joxer: "What's that?"
Hope: "Never mind."

[The trio comes across a village that is being attacked by the priests of Dahak.]

Woman: "Stay with the children!"
Child: "Mommy, I'm scared!"
Gabrielle: "I'll make sure they get into the woods."
Xena: "Alright. Don't take too long. We've got to keep moving."

Girl just wanna have fun
[Callisto amuses herself by sautιing a few priests and anyone else who happens to get in the way of her aim.]

'Gabrielle!  Now's your chance'
Xena: "Gabrielle! Now's your chance to go for the dagger while Callisto's occupied. Come on … this way."
Hope: "I'm right behind you."
