Jason: Now the voyage is over, I don't want any trouble to begin

Polydeuces: There won't be any trouble, Jason. Just tell us where the city is and when we attack.

Jason: We don't attack.

Polydeuces: But that's foolish, you have the finest fighting men in the world.

Jason: 40 fighting men against a nation?

Phalerus: Better forty than one Jason.

Jason: We're not *pirates*, Phalerus.

Acastus: What's that girl done to you? We thought you were a fighting man.

Jason: I'm going up alone in the morning. See what the situation is.

Polydeuces: Oh, you mean spy out the land. Well, why alone? Why not take a few of us scouting.

Jason: The fewer who go, the less can get caught. Now what's the fewest you can think of?

Polydeuces: One, of course.

Jason: Right. I accept your advice.

Pelias: Well?

Priest: Zeus, king of the gods of the Greeks, brighten the ashes that I may read the future. I see... a great tree at the end of the world. And in its branches there hang the skull and skin of a ram. They gleam and shine for it is a prize of the gods, a Golden Fleece.
