    • Goliath: Why were you attacked? Xanatos: The richer you are, the more enemies you have. And I'm very rich.

    • Magus: You blackguard! If I had my book of spells, I'd... Hakon: (laughs) Might you be referring to this book, Magus? Magic spells, hah! Makes me glad I can't read!

    • Goliath: You broke the spell of sleep that imprisoned us Xanatos, and for that we are grateful. But we will never trust humans again.

    • Princess: You turned them to stone forever? Magus: The terms of the spell were that they would sleep until the castle rises above the clouds.

    • Goliath: This castle is our home no matter where it's been taken. We will stay here.

    Notes (1)

    • The scene where Xanatos says, "Pay a man enough and he'll walk through hell barefoot" is cut from the video release.

    Trivia (3)

    • When Goliath reawakens after a thousand years, his toes curl and rip up the ledge of the pedestal that he's perched on. But in the next shot, the ledge he's standing on is undamaged.

    • In the scene where Xanatos opens a secret compartment to reveal a laser rifle, Xanatos--who's wearing a gray coat and no gloves--reaches for the gun in a wide shot, but the close-up shows a pair of gloved hands with a gray bracer on one forearm and blue fabric on the other, like on the commandos' uniforms.

    • The yellow exosuits that Xanatos' movers use to disassemble Castle Wyvern's masonry look remarkably similar to the suit Sigourney Weaver's character Ripley wore in the film Aliens.

    Allusions (1)

    • The pose that Goliath takes for his thousand-year sleep is almost identical to The Thinker, Auguste Rodin's sculpture of the poet Dante.
