Jason and the Argonauts (1963)
Hera: [asked why the gods set temptations and traps for mortals] So that the gods may know them, and men may know themselves.

Jason: The gods want their entertainment.
Zeus: Jason goes too far.
Hera: Because he speaks the truth when the gods themselves go too far?

Clash of the Titans (1981)
Zeus: Perseus has won. My son has triumphed.
Hera: A fortunate young man.
Zeus: Fortune is ally to the brave.
Thetis: What a dangerous precedent. What if there more heroes like him? What if courage and imagination became everyday mortal qualities? What will become of us?
Zeus: We would no longer be needed. But, for the moment, there is sufficient cowardice, sloth and mendacity down there on Earth to last forever.

[discussing Zeus' womanizing]
Thetis: So many women, and all these transformations and disguises he invents in order to seduce them. Sometimes a shower of gold, sometimes a bull or a swan. Why, once he even tried to ravish me disguised as a cuttlefish.
Hera: Did he succeed?
Thetis: Certainly not.
Athena: What did you do?
Thetis: Beat him at his own game. I simply turned myself into a shark.
[they laugh]

Hercules (1997)
[Hermes gives a bouquet of flowers to Hera]
Hera; Hercules' Mother: Why, Hermes, they're lovely.
Hermes: Yeah, you know, I had Orpheus do the arrangement. Isn't that too nutty?

Zeus: Fine work, my boy! You've done it! You're a true hero.
Hera; Hercules' Mother: You were willing to give your life to rescue this young woman.
Zeus: For a true hero isn't measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart.

"Xena: Warrior Princess: God Fearing Child (#5.12)" (2000)
Hera: From the moment Zeus and I created mortals, I've spent my time hating them for the infidelities he shared with them. But once I forgave him, I realized that humanity is the only creation I am truly proud of.
Hercules: Never thought I'd say this. I believe you. But how can I be sure you won't change your mind?
Hera: Because of the lesson I regret teaching you long ago, Hercules. Parents should never outlive their children.

Xanadu (1980)
Female Heavenly Voice: [after Kira's "Suspended in Time"] Maybe just one moment, darling.
Male Heavenly Voice: Well, maybe just one moment. Or forever. I keep getting them mixed up, too.
