Eli: Your enduring faith in one another is the greatest miracle of all.
[said to Xena and Gabrielle]
Xena: [to angel Callisto] What are you doing here? I thought you were supposed to be floating on a cloud someplace...
Callisto: [smiles] Thanks to you. You saved me from an eternity in Hell and for that I owe you my soul.
Xena: You don't owe me anything...
Callisto: I've been purified by the waters of Heaven and yet, still all you see in me is a black heart.
Xena: I know that the old Callisto is dead but she's alive in my memory.
Xena: Don't expect too much from me.
Callisto: I've come here to ask you not to interfere with Eli. He'll handle Ares on his own terms.
Xena: Ares' army's about to march on Pylos. Eli thinks he can stop them with a kind word. He can't. All I'm gonna do is give him a fighting chance.
Callisto: Eli has a destiny to fulfill. He's brought hope to the world and if that's to survive, he's gonna have to face this challenge alone...
Callisto: The new world can only be built on the foundation of the old one. The order of the Gods must fall. And you Eli, are the hammer.
Callisto: There is no reason to be afraid. Your faith is stronger than any who have come before you.
Eli: Until now...
Callisto: You said it yourself. "All fear is the fear of loss and only through that fear can we truly love." You wouldn't have been chosen if you weren't afraid.
[Eli bows his head. Callisto appears beside him and kisses his cheek]
Callisto: Remember... in everything you do we are always with you.
[Eli starts to cry and Callisto disappears]
Callisto: Xena, my time has come to be reincarnated into the mortal world and the body that will bear my spirit has been ordained.
Callisto: I can think of no greater mother than you...
Xena: It was you all along?
Xena: You gave me this child?
Callisto: In the past, I destroyed your life Xena.
Xena: [on the verge of tears] And I destroyed yours...
Xena: Maybe it's time that we both gave back what we once took from each other.
[Callisto touches Xena's stomach becomes the soul of the baby. A tear moves down Xena's face]
Eli: [as an angel] Love is the way.
Ares, God of War: [fighting Gabrielle] You'll always be a goodie-two-shoes.
Gabrielle: Yeah, but with a really big sword!
[she attacks Ares]
Ares, God of War: Since the beginning of time it's been warriors who have shaped the world!
Eli: That's about to change.
Xena: Gabrielle! What's the matter? He gonna hit you with his hankie?
Ares, God of War: You, on the other hand, have been keeping yourself busy. I wish I'd known you were looking for a father.
Xena: I'm not.
Ares, God of War: Oh? Well, somebody clearly got the job.
Xena: Yeah, Gabrielle.
Ares, God of War: I would have paid to see that.
