Haunting of Amphipolis:
Gabrielle: "Xena, if I can't do this it means that you're down there forever."
Xena: "You can do it. I believe in you. Bring me back, Gabrielle."
*** After many unsuccessful tries, Gabrielle finally touches her fingers to her lips before being able un-pinch Xena. It was brought to my attention that this mimics the "Sleeping Beauty" concept in which only a kiss from her "prince" can awaken the princess (albeit a warrior princess).
Heart of Darkness:
Lucifer: "You're a mortal female with a lying tongue, savage tendencies, and a blonde girlfriend."
Xena: [while kissing Lucifer, her rolled up coat hits her in the back of the head, thrown by one slightly annoyed looking bard ... sigh, Xena is soooo whipped] ... "Yes?"
Xena: [hmm, sounds like a bit of jealousy rearing its ugly green head] ... "Well, you and Virgil were looking ready to burn not long ago."
Xena: "Wait! If anyone deserves this historic opportunity, it's Gabrielle."
Lucifer: "What?! Gabrielle?"
Xena: "She's been my partner for years. She's shared things with me you could never understand."
Gabrielle: "Thought I had lost you for a minute there."
Xena: "Yeah, which minute was that?"
Gabrielle: "You and Lucifer were looking , um … a little ... uh …"
Xena: "Gabrielle, every time I felt myself lose control, I just thought of you -- led me back home."
*** To prevent Gabrielle from being caught and beaten, Xena ruins her plan to kill Gurkhan (which would have most likely failed) and places herself in a position that can only result in a severe beating or death.
*** Hmm, Xena seems a bit irritated about Korah's fondness for Gabrielle.
Xena: "What's with the Desert Boy?"
Gabrielle: "For once, Xena, I'd like to be the Roman noble and you be the slave."
Gabrielle: "I never thought I'd see this."
Xena: "What's that?"
Gabrielle: "You washing blood off my hands."
Xena: "I felt that way once. I felt there was nothing left to live for. I was tired of hurting and I just wanted it to end."
Gabrielle: "What changed it for you?"
Xena: "You did."
Gabrielle: "You saved me today, Xena, against the Greater Good. Why? Isn't that what we've been fighting for?"
Xena: "Gabrielle, in everyone's life there's something that goes beyond the Greater Good. That's what you are in my life. I wasn't about to let you die out there if there was something I could do about it."
Gabrielle: "What if it was my choice?"
Xena: "Especially if it was your choice."
Gabrielle: "Xena, if I had listened to my heart, do think that boy would still be alive?"
Xena: "You did listen to your heart. You thought he was going to kill me. Your heart said to protect me."
Gabrielle: "Xena, I have a last request."
Xena: "I don't want to hear it."
Gabrielle: "I'm serious. You don't want to know?"
Xena: "What is it, then?"
Gabrielle: "I don't want to be buried with the Amazons."
Xena: "Alright. Well, in fifty years when the time comes--"
Gabrielle: "Xena, I want to lie with you, with your family, in Amphipolis"
Xena: "What about your family?"
Gabrielle: "I love them … but I'm a part of you. I want it to be like that forever. I love you."
Xena: "This is not your fault. This is not your fault. It's mine for setting you on a path you were never meant to walk."
Gabrielle: "Any path is okay, Xena, as long as it's with you."
Xena: "This mission is so dangerous I'm afraid I won't survive. I can't ask you to die with me once again. Whatever happens, know that my love for you is endless."
Gabrielle: "I know Xena wouldn't have done this if she felt this was something she had to do by herself. I debated whether to respect her wish, but I can't. Her path is my path."
Maiden #1: "Sister, come join us. Our new friend is delightful. I think I love her."
Maiden #2: "You fall in love too easily, sister."
Maiden #3: "I love her, too."
Maiden #1: "Be quiet. She's my friend." … [dives under the water and gooses Xena]
Brunnhilda: "You love her very much, don't you?"
Gabrielle: "She's my best friend. I know her like I know my own heart."
Brunnhilda: "A friendship like that is something to be envied."
Gabrielle: "It has a price, like everything."
Brunnhilda: "A price you love paying."
Brunnhilda: "You do realize this may mean your death?"
Gabrielle: "Xena's path is my path."
Gabrielle: "Don't ever leave me again!"
Odin: "My ravens, they tell me you've fallen in love with her partner. Is it possible that you thought killing Xena would kill any chance you had with Gabrielle?"
Brunnhilda: "Those mangy stool pigeons."
Brunnhilda: "Is Xena all you think about?!"
Gabrielle: "Xena is my family. She is the most important thing in my life."
Brunnhilda: [grabbing Gabrielle by the arm] … "I defied my god for you, Gabrielle!"
Gabrielle: "Xena and I have a connection. It's stronger than either one of us. We're soul mates."
Brunnhilda: "My love is strong, Gabrielle. I can feel it."
Gabrielle: "I am trying to tell you that Xena and I are meant to be together. We didn't make it that way, it just is."
Xena: [in the distance] … "Gabrielle!"
Brunnhilda: "I can see your heart lies with Xena, but I'll prove to you which one of us deserves your love."
Brunnhilda: "They're going to kill her before I get a chance to prove my love for you."
Brunnhilda: "Here … This ring is too powerful to fall into undeserving hands … and so are you ... I'll become an eternal flame for you. Only your true soul mate will be able to pass through the fire. You'll be safe."
Return of the Valkyrie:
Xena: "Are you a demon … or my own mind made mad?"
Gabrielle: "I am the truth of who you are. Our souls are united, Xena."
Brunnhilda: "Xena … Xena … the love in your heart burns stronger than any flame. You belong together, Xena."
Gabrielle: "I dreamed you'd come for me."
Xena: "It was like I was in a dream, too. I forgot everything. Even though I didn't remember you, I felt your presence and knew I'd never be complete unless those shadows were brought into the light."
Rhine Maiden: "What magic has made Xena into such a noble creature she would give up the power of the Rheingold?"
Xena: "It wasn't magic."
Old Ares Had a Farm:
Ares: "Is there anything you and I agree on … [Gabrielle sends a wry look towards Xena] … oh, yeah, anything else?"
Xena: "Gabrielle, what are you doing here?"
Gabrielle: "I'm tired of being used by you, Xena."
Xena: "Gabrielle, this is not the time for one of your little spats."
Xena: "Don't listen to her, she's insane."
Gabrielle: "I'll tell you who's insane - you, if you think you can walk away from me. You've fallen in love with Ares and suddenly I'm nothing."
