Achilles: You were brave to fight them. Briseis: To fight back when men attack me? A dog has that kind of courage.


Achilles: [about Hector's body] If I let you walk out of here, if I let you take him, it changes nothing. You're still my enemy in the morning.
Priam: And you're still my enemy tonight. But even enemies can show respect.

Achilles: Things are less simple today. Odysseus: Women have a way of complicating things.

Hector: I thought it was you I was fighting yesterday, and I wish it had been you. But I gave the dead boy the honor he deserved. Achilles: You gave him the honor of your sword! You won't have eyes tonight, you won't have ears or a tongue. You will wander the underworld blind, deaf, and dumb, and all the dead will know...this is Hector: the fool who thought he killed Achilles.

[to his men] Myrmidons! My brothers of the sword! I would rather fight beside you than any army of thousands! Let no man forget how menacing we are! We are lions! Do you know what's there, waiting beyond those walls? Immortality! Take It! It's Yours!

Andromache: [to Hector] I can't imagine life without you.

Briseis: Would you leave this all behind? Achilles: Would you leave Troy?

Briseis: [to Achilles] Do you enjoy provoking me?

[to Achilles] Let Achilles fight for honor. Let Agamemnon fight for power and let the gods decide which man to glorify. Forget about Agamemnon, fight for me. My wife will feel much better knowing you're by my side. I will feel much better.

Briseis: You lost your cousin, and now you have taken mine. Where does it end? Achilles: It never ends.

Andromache: 50,000 men did not come to watch your brother fight and you know it.

Thetis: If you stay in Larissa, you will find peace. You will find a wonderful woman, and you will have sons and daughters, who will have children. And they'll all love you and remember your name. But when your children are dead, and their children after them, your name will be lost. If you go to Troy, glory will be yours. They will write stories about your victories for thousands of years, and the world will honor your name. But if you go to Troy, you will never come back, for your glory walks hand-in-hand with your fate. And I shall never see you again.

Title card: 3200 years ago Title card: After decades of warfare, Agamemnon, King of Mycenae, has forced the kingdoms of Greece into a loose alliance. Only Thessaly remains unconquered. Title card: Agamemnon's brother, Menelaus, King of Sparta, is weary of battle. He seeks to make peace with Troy, the most powerful rival to the emerging Greek nation. Title card: Achilles, considered the greatest warrior ever born, fights for the Greek army. But his disdain for Agamemnon's rule threatens to break the fragile alliance apart.

Priam: I have endured what no one on earth has endured. I have kissed the hands of the man who killed my son. Achilles: Priam?

Agamemnon: A great victory was won today, but that victory was not yours. Kings did not kneel to Achilles. Kings did not pay homage to Achilles.
Achilles: Perhaps the kings were too far behind to see; the soldiers won the battle.
Agamemnon: History remembers kings, not soldiers! Tomorrow we'll batter down the gates of Troy and I will build monuments for victory on every island of Greece; I'll carve "Agamemnon" in the stone!
Achilles: Be careful, King of Kings. First you need the victory.
