"Highlander: Comes a Horseman (#5.12)" (1997)
[referring to his career as a Horseman of the Apocalypse]
Methos: I killed ten thousand and I was good at it. And it wasn't for vengeance, it wasn't for greed; it was because I liked it. I was Death. Death on a horse.

Duncan MacLeod: Did you really kill all those people?
Methos: Yes, is that what you to hear? Killing was all I knew, is *that* what you want to hear?
Duncan MacLeod: It's enough
Methos: No, it is not enough. I killed, but I didn't just kill fifty, I didn't just kill a hundred. I killed thousand. I killed ten thousand. And I was good at it. And it wasn't for vengeance. It wasn't for greed. It was because I liked it. Cassandra was nothing, her village was nothing. Do you know who I was? *Death*! Death. Death on horse! When mothers warned their children that the monster would get them, that monster was me. I was the nightmare that kept them awake at night. Is that was you want to hear? Than the answer... is yes. Oh, yes.

Caspian: I killed more people.
Silas: Women and children don't count!
Caspian: I'll kill you just as well.
Methos: Lay it down, Caspian!
Caspian: Why should I?
Methos: [holds a sword to his throat] Because if you do not, I will kill you! Trust me, if I have to lose one, it WILL be you.

Methos: [feels a quickening] Mac, is that you?
[a knife stabs him in the chest]
Kronos: [appearing] Greetings, Brother.
Methos: Kronos!
[gasps in pain]
Kronos: I missed you too.

Kronos: Been a long time. How do you feel?
Methos: [after being stabbed in the chest] Like I left my heart in San Fransisco.
Kronos: I didn't know you had a heart. Does it hurt?
Methos: What do you think?
Kronos: Since you asked? I think you're not used to pain, Brother. What's happened, you gone soft?

Cassandra: Hijad... my people, take me to my people.
Methos: You want to see them?
Cassandra: Yes.
Methos: [points to a bunch of skulls] There they are.
Cassandra: You killed them? All of them?
Methos: Including you!
Cassandra: [looks where she was stabbed] The wound... it's gone! I should be dead.

Methos: [deleted scene, about the skulls of their victims] Caspian keeps the heads, he thinks it makes him smarter... so far it hasn't worked.

Kronos: For a long time, I thought you were dead, I didn't bother looking for you. But then I heard rumors, 'Methos the world's oldest man', you slipped up there, old friend, you got sloppy.
Methos: Well we're none of us perfect.
Kronos: I shouldn't be surprised you're still alive, you were always the one I counted on. You weren't the strongest or the toughest, but you were the survivor. It's what you did best... or did.
Methos: So you've come to kill me.
Kronos: It's what I do best! But you do have a choice.
Methos: Well I'm always one for choices.
Kronos: Well, you can either lose your head, or join me.
Methos: Since you put it that way, welcome back, Brother.


"Highlander: Revelation 6:8 (#5.13)" (1997)
Silas: [Methos steps in front of Silas as Silas is about to kill Cassandra] You're challenging me for the girl's head? Take her, she's yours, Brother.
Methos: I am NOT your brother.
Silas: How can you do this? How can you go against everything you are?
Methos: You don't know ANYTHING about me!

Duncan 'Mac: [Methos is walking away] Methos. What about Cassandra?
Methos: One of a thousand regrets, MacLeod. One of a thousand regrets.

Methos: Why do you think I didn't tell you? I knew how you'd react. What I've done, you can't forgive, it's not in your nature.

Methos: Kronos didn't torch those villages for a few coins, he torched them to watch them BURN! And now he'll have a nuclear bomb or a plane full of Napalm but the effect with be the same. The world living in fear of the Horsemen.

Kronos: A bomb with the virus in a fountain? How many people do you think that will kill? You've gone soft.
Caspian: [mockingly] I'm scared, are you scared?
Methos: It's a prelude, have you read Aristotle's Poetics? No of course not, you've never even seen Casablanca. What is the first rule of great drama? Start small and build. First a bomb in a fountain to kill a few. Then a public pool to kill a hundred, then a stadium to kill 10,000, then, one drop of the virus in the city's water supply, within a week.
Kronos: And then a country.
Methos: You want to own the world? You offer them a choice. The Horsemen rule or they all die.
Kronos: The Horsemen rule of the world dies. That has a nice ring to it.

Dr. Cernaveda: What are you going to do with Caspari?
Kronos: Rehabilitate him.
Dr. Cernaveda: Are you serious?
Kronos: Uh huh.
Dr. Cernaveda: You can't be serious.
Methos: Why? What did he do?
Dr. Cernaveda: Nobody knows how many people he's killed. They found parts in his basement, his garden... his freezer.
Silas: So why don't they execute him?
Dr. Cernaveda: In a less progressive age he would've been, but today we are more humane. I don't know what you want with this one but believe me, he is better off dead.
Methos: Very humane.

Kronos: We never raise a blade against each other, isn't that right, Methos?
Methos: You said it.


Highlander: The Source (2007) (TV)
Methos: You trust me?
Duncan MacLeod: You'll do.

Duncan MacLeod: [after burying Joe Dawson] I'm done.
Methos: Why are you upset MacLeod? Is it because Joe's dead or because you, the great Highlander, couldn't save him?
Duncan MacLeod: Go to hell!
Methos: So this is the new MacLeod? A man who turns his back on the memory of his friend, his clan? The quiter?
Duncan MacLeod: [Duncan punches Methos, draws Reggie's sword] Get up!
Cardinal Giovanni: This is Holy Ground!
Duncan MacLeod: I don't care!
Reggie Weller: [restraining Anna] No. This is what we do.
Methos: You know why Joe interfered?
Duncan MacLeod: Why?
Methos: It wasn't for me. It was for *you*. So you might be the one. And now, you're just gonna piss all over his grave. Well, come on!
Duncan MacLeod: Don't hide behind that bullshit, Methos. You wanna blame somebody, blame *yourself*! You got him involved!

Methos: Rome was a long time ago, my friend.
Cardinal Giovanni: Not for me it wasn't.

Methos: Leave him.
Duncan MacLeod: I can't.

Cardinal Giovanni: Why didn't he take his head?
Methos: WHY didn't he know he was here?

Duncan MacLeod: You're an asshole.
Methos: I never said I was deep.

Cardinal Giovanni: I thought God wouldn't let this happen to a true Christian.
Methos: You know, Giovanni, I saw Christ teach, I saw Christ heal, you, you self centered son of a bitch, are NO Christian!


"Highlander: Methos (#3.16)" (1995)
Duncan Macleod: I just didn't think you existed.
Methos: Well, it's good to be a myth.
Duncan Macleod: Yeah, no one hunts for a myth. Or a Watcher.
Methos: What better place to hide? I'm in charge of finding myself and I make sure it never happens. Even got a few entries on you in my journal.
Duncan Macleod: You keep a diary?
Methos: I've been keeping it almost since writing began.
Duncan Macleod: That would make a hell of a read.
Methos: You could say that. How may people have stood on the same stage with Julius Caesar and the Rolling Stones?

Duncan Macleod: When was the last time you faced anyone?
Methos: Ooh, uh. What are we?
[checks his watch]
Methos: Sixth of March. Uhh... two hundred years.
Duncan Macleod: Oh, that's good.
Methos: I may be a bit rusty, but I'm still here.
Duncan Macleod: Well, let's keep it that way.

Methos: Live, Highlander. Grow stronger. Fight another day.


Highlander: Endgame (2000)
Methos: You know a little about Buddhist monks. Some of them come to cherish life so much that to step on an insect or harm a blade of grass becomes a violation of their creed, so the place themsleves under an extreme form of protective custody, a sanctuary of sorts. Well, for an Immortal who comes to abhor the bloodshed, there's a similar solution - a way to be removed from the game forever. Though the price is unimaginably high, but you are, for all practical purposes, protected from the violence within you.

Duncan MacLeod: What're you doing here?
Joe Dawson: Keeping tabs on you.
Duncan MacLeod: Yeah? Well somebody should've kept tabs on that psychotic asshole back there.
Methos: Didn't you get it back in London? These guys don't play by the rules.

Methos: [hands Duncan his katana] I liberated that from their lost and found.
Duncan MacLeod: There's blood on it.
Methos: I didn't say it was easy.


"Highlander: Not to Be (#6.13)" (1998)
Hugh Fitzcairn: Methos became Richie's teacher, but he taught him a lot more than how to use a sword.
Richie Ryan: It's done.
Methos: Any problems?
Richie Ryan: Yeah, I didn't think a million bucks would be that heavy.
[laughs]
Richie Ryan: Oh yeah.
Kronos: I think our friend is a quick learner.
Methos: Well I can always spot potential.

Richie Ryan: [Methos draws his sword on Richie] What's going on?
Methos: It's a reckoning.


"Highlander: Judgment Day (#4.21)" (1996)
Methos: We've got to stop meeting like this, people will talk.
