Helen of Troy (2003 TV Mini-Series)
Helen: Loving me kills people, destroys families, causes such grief you cannot imagine!
Agammemnon: [to Menelaus] You are a smudge on history's ledger, but you are my brother.
Menelaus: War is waged by nations, but it is human beings who pay the price.
Paris: The Greeks have other ideas.
Guard: What sort of ideas?
Paris: Like, cut of our heads, put them on pikes, let birds eat our eyes... that sort of thing.
Helen: ...but tonight, when I saw you, something began to tear away my shield to expose the one thing I cannot endure: hope.
Theseus: The most beautiful girl in the world is here in Sparta.
Pirithous: She's just a child!
Theseus: I'll ripen her like grapes; I'll age her like wine. When she ages just enough, I'll taste her.
Pollux: Someday, soon, you will marry.
Helen: I already know who to.
Pollux: You do?
Helen: I saw him.
Helen: In the water.
Pollux: You'll marry a fish?
Helen: He's a shepherd.
Pollux: Oh that's likely.
Theseus: Someday, some place, you'll find someone better, someone worthy. When you do, neither the gods will nor the earth's turning will keep you from him.
Helen: That's how I feel about you.
Theseus: Well, Helen, this is only a kind of practice. Someday you'll know the difference.
Agammemnon: The weight of a crown has made my brother wise beyond my expertise.
Hector: Now he's talking war against Troy.
Hector: Because we control access to the silks and spices of Byzantine.
Paris: I can't believe people go to war over nutmeg.
Hector: Well, they do, Paris, and you'd better get used to it.
Achilles: You should have killed me when you had the chance.
Hector: I don't fight like that.
Achilles: I do!
[Achilles throws his spear at Hector]
Hector: The prophecy has been fulfilled.
Paris: What prophecy?
Hector: Because you live, we all must die.
