Briseis:"You killed Apollo's priests!"
Achilles:"I've killed men in five countries, never a priest."
Briseis:"Well, then your men did. The sun god will have his vengeance."
Achilles:"What's he waiting for?"
Briseis:"The right time to strike."
Achilles:"His priest's are dead, and his acolyte's a captive. I think your god is afraid of me."
Glaucus:"The Boatman waits for us! I say we make him wait a little longer!"
King Agamemnon:"Let it burn! Let Troy burn! Burn it! Burn it all! Burn Troy!"
Prince Hector:"All my life I've lived by a code and the code is simple. Honor the gods, love your woman and defend your country!"
Menelaus:"See the crows? They've never tasted prince before."
Paris:"A beautiful morning. Poseidon has blessed our voyage."
Hector:"Sometimes the gods bless you in the morning, and curse you in the afternoon."
Odysseus:"Let Achilles fight for honor, let Agamemnon fight for power, and let the gods decide which man to glorify."
Briseis:"You lost your cousin, now you've taken mine. When does it end?"
Achilles:"It never ends."
King Priam:"I've fought many wars in my time. Some were fought for land, some for power, some for glory. I suppose fighting for love makes more sense than all the rest."
Odysseus:"This war will never be forgotten, nor will the heroes who fight in it."
Achilles:"Hector! Hector! Hector!"
King Agamemnon:"I see you're not hiding behind your high walls. Valiant of you. Ill-advised, but valiant."
Ajax:"You are as fearless as the gods. I am honored to go to war with you."
Achilles:"As am I."
Achilles:"Apparently you won some great victory."
Agamemnon:"Ah, perhaps you didn't notice. The Trojan beach belonged to Priam in the morning, it belongs to Agamemnon in the afternoon."
Achilles:"You can have the beach. I didn't come here for sand."
Agamemnon:"No? You came here because you want your name to last through the ages. A great victory was won today, but that victory is not yours. Kings did not kneel to Achilles! Kings did not pay homage to Achilles!"
Achilles:"Perhaps the kings were too far behind to see, the soldiers won the battle."
Agamemnon:"History remembers kings! Not soldiers!"
Hector:"I'll make a pact with you. With the gods as our witnesses, let us pledge that the winner will allow the loser all the proper funeral rituals."
Achilles:"There are no pacts between lions and men."
Hector:"Why did you come here?"
Achilles:"They will be talking about this war for a thousand years."
Hector:"In a thousand years, the dust from our bones will be gone."
Achilles:"Yes prince, but our names will remain."
Achilles:"Is there no one else?! Is there no one else?!"
Boy:"The Thessalonian you're fighting, he's the biggest man I've ever seen. I wouldn't want to fight him."
Achilles:"That's why no one will remember your name."
Ajax:"Row you lazy whores! Row! Greeks are dying! Row!"
Achilles:"At night I see their faces, all the men I've killed. They're standing there on the far bank of the river Styx. They're waiting for me. They say, 'Welcome, brother'."
Achilles:"My brothers of the sword! I would rather fight beside you than any army of thousands! Let no man forget how menacing we are, we are lions! Do you know what's there, waiting beyond that beach? Immortality! Take it! It's yours!"
Odysseus:"If they ever tell my story let them say that I walked with giants. Men rise and fall like the winter wheat, but these names will never die. Let them say I lived in the time of Hector, tamer of horses. Let them say I lived in the time of Achilles."
Achilles:"You don't need to fear me girl. You're the only Trojan who can say that."
Hector:"No son of Troy will ever submit to a foreign ruler!"
Agamemnon:"Then every son of Troy shall die!"
Hector:"You speak of war as if it's a game, but how many wives wait at Troy's gate for husbands they will never see again?"
Achilles:"Perhaps your brother can comfort them. I hear he is good at charming other men's wives."
Glaucus:"Soldiers of Troy! You men are warriors! To lead you has been my honor!"
Achilles:"Now you know who you're fighting."
Menelaus:"May the gods keep the wolves in the hills and the women in our beds!"
