Season 5 ...
Xena: "Gabrielle and I have already been through Hell together. I didn't come all this way to lose her now. So either you set me up with a pair of wings or I take another dive. Michael, Gabrielle's soul and mine are destined to be together. I can't let her walk through Hell alone ... please."
Xena: "I want to spend Eternity with you. Won't you join me?"
Xena: "Gabrielle, the love that we have, it's stronger than Heaven or Hell. It transcends Good or Evil. It's a end in itself. Our souls are destined to be together."
Gabrielle: "We're going to be together ... for Eternity."
Xena: "Gabrielle's going to freak."
Them Bones, Them Bones:
Xena: "Some warrior, huh?"
Gabrielle: "You look beautiful."
Gabrielle: "You do."
Gabrielle: "Xena, I love your baby like it were my own. I will do anything I have to to fight for its life. And I deserve that chance as much as you do.
Xena: "Remember, don't let go of the dagger."
Gabrielle: "I won't. Xena, don't let go of me."
Alti: "I've always wanted to be inside of you, Xena."
Alti: "Well, at least we'll be together again. I've so missed these intimate little moments."
Back in the Bottle:
Gabrielle: "You know, sometimes people think that a home is a place. It can be a person."
Seeds of Faith:
Ares: "I wish I had known you were looking for a father."
Xena: "I'm not."
Ares: "Oh? Well, somebody clearly got the job."
Xena: "Yeah -- Gabrielle."
Ares: "I would have paid to see that."
Eli: "Your enduring faith in one another is the greatest miracle of all."
God Fearing Child:
Gabrielle: "Xena, wait - I had this dream last night. You and I were both giving birth to your baby. It was like it was coming from both of us."
Xena: "It's always going to be this way, isn't it? My child will always face an uphill battle to be happy."
Gabrielle: "Xena, your baby won't have to do it alone."
Xena: "I couldn't save my son."
Gabrielle: "Xena, that was not your fault. We both have regrets about Solan. This is going to be different. You and I will dedicate our lives to protect your baby. Come on, you can't fail."
Xena: "We won't fail.
Ares: "Well, I've had a falling out with Dad, and as you know, I've always had a thing for you."
Xena: "For me and my friend."
Ares: "How did we ever let things get this way between us?"
Xena: "Well, could it have been when you used the Furies to drive me insane? Or, when you turned yourself into my father just to torment me? Or, was it coming on to my best friend?!"
*** Hmm, Xena seems a bit more miffed about Ares' advances towards Gabrielle than anything else.
Amphipolis Under Siege:
Elanis: "Athena doesn't need your help."
Ares: "Not any man's, it would seem."
Gabrielle: "If you lay a hand on her (Xena), I swear …"
Ares: "What? You'll do what?"
Athena: "What's the matter, Bro? Worried about your girlfriend?"
Ares: "Me? No … worried about yours?"
Athena: "Your wound is beyond my healing."
Elanis: "Do I still have you favor, Athena?
Athena: "Always … always."
*** How about this smirk from Gabrielle when Xena told Ares that she "felt nothing"?
Gabrielle: "Xena …"
Gabrielle: "Did you say that you felt something?"
Gabrielle: "No, I think I heard you. You said you felt something."
Xena: "Gabrielle, I said no such thing."
Gabrielle: "Oh, really?"
Xena: "Maybe a little something."
*** Gabrielle seems a bit more than casually concerned about Xena's reaction to Ares.
Gabrielle: "It makes sense, Xena. We've never really had our own home. So, I see this place as our domestic bliss. All we have to do is fix it up a little bit."
Eris: "You don't need a man unless you want a baby, and we've got Eve to play with."
*** Spoken like a true budding lesbian.
Gabrielle: (snoozing on her throne) "Hmm, not tonight …"
*** Hmm, I wonder who she was dreaming about?
Eris: "Xena, now that you and Gabrielle are broken up, you definitely need a new traveling partner."
Xena: "No, no. Hang on. See, Gabrielle and I have only separated for a couple of weeks, just so we can work things out."
Gabrielle: "Did you pack?"
Xena: "Yeah, almost done. Listen, Eris found some of your scrolls in my saddlebag."
Gabrielle: "I must have left them there at the last camp. You can leave them in the hut, Xena."
Xena: "That's just it, I can't."
Gabrielle: "You read my scrolls?"
Xena: "I always said I would."
Gabrielle: "I didn't think that … well?"
Xena: "I think that anyone who writes like you can - who can find grace and meaning in everything that happens - she's sure to make a wonderful queen, and that's worth sticking around to see."
*** I love that Gabrielle still considers Xena to be her champion.
Meg: [to Xena] … "You know what? Shorty, you kinda look like her … Only Gabrielle wasn't so butch."
Xena: "It's not gonna be easy. She has my darkness inside her. She has Callisto's spirit. Those are tough odds to beat."
Gabrielle: "You did it."
Xena: "I had help."
Gabrielle: "Looks like you got your daughter back."
Xena: "No, we got our daughter back."
