: [asked why the gods set temptations and traps for mortals
] So that the gods may know them, and men may know themselves.
: The gods want their entertainment. Zeus
: Jason goes too far. Hera
: Because he speaks the truth when the gods themselves go too far?
: 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
: 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.
[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?
: 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.
: 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.
Female Heavenly Voice

] Maybe just one moment, darling. Male Heavenly Voice
