Gabrielle: Lila, I'm going to join up with Xena.
Lila: Are you serious?
Gabrielle: Absolutely. I'm going to be a warrior, like her.
Gabrielle: The bridge will hold me up. The bridge will hold me up. The bridge will hold me up. The bridge-- Being an adventuress isn't that hard.
Gabrielle: Immortal father Zeus in Heaven, curse this brute if he eats me! Torture him with the slain serpent's blood and the crow's droppings!
Cyclops: How is a young thing like you gonna kill Xena?
Gabrielle: That's the point-- She'd never let a man get close enough to do her-- At least, not that kind of `do her.' But, a young, innocent-looking girl like me-- I'll catch her totally off guard, cut her evil throat, and hack off her Cyclops-blinding hands.
Cyclops: You're really gonna mess her up, huh?
Gabrielle: You know what I think I'll do to her?
Gabrielle: Blind her-- gouge out them eyeballs and bring `em back to you. It'll make a nice little appetizer, don't you think?
Cyclops: Ooh, you'd do that for me?
Gabrielle: I feel we're bonded in our hate for this she-demon.
Gabrielle: Thank the gods for dumb Cyclopses.
Gabrielle: Oh, it worked! I have been lying here, supplicating myself to the great god, Hermes, the god of travellers; begging him to send someone who's on the way to Amphipolis. Hah! And here you are-- it's a miracle, don't you think?
Man Not really. This is the road to Amphipolis. Anybody that'd come along here would've been headed there.
Gabrielle: I've been told that I'm very pleasant company on a trip. I can sing! I know several poems, which I recite with great passion. A travelling bard once gave me lessons. I sing of Oedipus, King of Thebes-- the most tragic of men.
Gabrielle: Now, hold on. Let's say that you're right, and she's Draco's buddy. Let's say, she's even his girlfriend. Well, what have you accomplished? You think that Draco's bad news now? What do you think he'll be like, when he hears that you knocked off his woman? Oh, boy, it gives me the creeps even to think about it.
Xena: It's hard to be alone.
Gabrielle: You're not alone.
Gabrielle: I was gonna follow you, until you were in some jam. It's so cold out there, and I couldn't get a fire started. And the mosquitoes are as big as eagles.
Xena: You know, I'm sending you home in the morning.
Gabrielle: I won't stay home. I don't belong there, Xena. I'm not the little girl that my parents wanted me to be. You wouldn't understand.
Xena: You know, where I'm headed, there'll be trouble.
Gabrielle: I know.
Xena: Then why would you want to go into that with me?
Gabrielle: That's what friends do-- They stand by each other when there's trouble.
Xena: All right, friend.
