[One well-placed chakram stops the horsemen in their tracks.]
Soldier: "The Romans! The Romans are coming!"
Kahina: "Get the horses! Quickly!"
Xena: "I hate to interrupt their games, but I'm getting you out of here."
Tazir: "To the valley!"
Gabrielle: "Saved by the Romans. I would have bet against that."
Xena: "It sure took them long enough."
Xena: "I needed a diversion."
Gabrielle: "Last night I thought letting them kill me was the best thing for everyone."
Xena: "Gabrielle, you may never forgive yourself for what happened to Korah, but you'll be a stronger person for it."
Gabrielle: "I don't know."
Xena: "I felt that way once. I felt there was nothing left to live for. I was tired of hurting and I just wanted it to end."
Gabrielle: "What changed it for you?"
Xena: "You did."
Gabrielle: "I guess we've come full circle, huh?"
Xena: "Come on."
Xena: "You're out of time and you're out of options. Now that they know you're here, they'll hunt you down unless you stop them."
Kahina: "You expect us to trust you now? Why should we?"
Xena: "You have no choice."
Gabrielle: "We could have ridden in the opposite direction."
Tazir: "Why didn't you?"
Gabrielle: "Tazir, your son's blood is on my hands, and it will be for as long as I walk this earth. I can't change that. But I can help his people win their freedom. Maybe his death will have some meaning then."
Xena: "And I promised you that I'd help you defeat the Romans. I keep my promises."
Soldier: "The Romans are coming! They found our trail!"
Kahina: "She's right. We have no choice."
Xena: [switched into Warrior Princess Mode] … "Let's move it! Get those horses out of here!"
Xena: "You said the sun had to be in this position."
Tazir: "Yes. That's how we know when one is coming."
Soldier: "They're right behind us!"
Xena: "Everyone get covered up! Move!"
Kahina: "We don't have enough people even with the surprise."
Gabrielle: "We have Xena, what more do you want?"
Kahina: "Funny how the Romans showed up just in time to save your friend … almost like it was planned."
Xena: "You got the fight you wanted. Stop complaining."
Kahina: [to Gabrielle] … "Left a few details out of those scrolls, didn't you?"
[The Romans enter the valley as a sandstorm begins to brew. In the confusion of the storm, Xena and the nomads emerge from their covered holes and attack the Romans. During the fray, Gabrielle stops a Roman soldier from skewering Tazir.]
Xena: "Tell Caesar Xena sends her regards."
Commander: "Xena …"
Gabrielle: "Do you think they'll succeed against the Romans?"
Xena: "They've got a good chance. The desert's a powerful weapon in their favor."
Gabrielle: "For a while there, I didn't think the day would end so well."
Xena: "Neither did I."
Gabrielle: "You saved me today, Xena, against the Greater Good. Why? Isn't that what we've been fighting for?"
Xena: "Gabrielle, in everyone's life there's something that goes beyond the Greater Good. That's what you are in my life. I wasn't about to let you die out there if there was something I could do about it."
Gabrielle: "What if it was my choice?"
Xena: "Especially if it was your choice."
Tazir: "It seems I have traded Korah's life for my own … thanks to you. That evens the scales between us."
Gabrielle: "It doesn't really, does it?"
Tazir: "No. He could have become a great warrior … just like you."
Gabrielle: "… just like me."
