Story So Far: Gabrielle becomes an Amazon princess. Xena tries to stop a war between the Amazons and Centaurs.

Rewind For:

Ephiny displaying an intimate knowledge of equine droppings. That girl really needs a hobby. No, a different hobby.

The two Amazons carrying the sacrificial sword in a large metal bucket slung between two wooden poles. Swords in buckets…..just doesn’t seem very warrior-like, does it? The wooden poles, however, were definitely overkill.

Some tough warlord – the first thing Krykus does after worming his way out of the collapsed tent is to adjust his hair!

A comical moment as Xena fends off an ‘annoying’ Gabrielle who thinks because she’s been an Amazon for a whole five minutes, is now qualified to give Xena hand-to-hand combat advice. Xena was having none of it, her shove reminding the Gabster that a Warrior Princess still outranks a wet behind the ears Amazon Princess every time.

When the Amazons throw down their weapons before the Centaurs, Gabrielle tosses hers and Xena’s down in the most girly way imaginable. She may need the Amazon advanced weapons class, methinks.


Quotable Quotes:

"Just before noon tomorrow, my army attacks." Why is it always ‘noon’? Did they even have ‘noon’ in ancient Greece? Ancient anywhere?

"She’s annoying. How have you put up with her?" Tough as boots Ephiny, isn’t quite ready to respect the new Amazon Princess. Whilst Gabrielle rebutted with, ‘she puts up with me just fine", the Warrior Princess remained strangely mute.

"Now I see why you ride the horse." Just in case you didn’t get it the first dozen sarcastic times – Ephiny thinks the bard is a moron and she can’t believe the ‘cool’ Xena is hanging around with the class nerd. So there.

Best Comebacks:

Xena: "Something about me you find interesting?"

Ephiny: "Yes."

Xena: "Wanna tell me?"

Ephiny: "No."

Xena: "Then stop staring at me before I take your eyes out."

Ephiny: "Come! NOW."

Gabrielle: "I’m sorry, you must have mistaken me for a pet."
