  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Young Deianeira: Excuse me, Eunuch! I just gave you a message to give to Hercules!
      Waylan: Hercules is unavailable for the foreseeable future. And I'm not a eunuch. I'm a slave.
      Young Deianeira: What's the difference?
      Waylan: Ha! Uh... I'll tell ya when you grow up.

    • Young Deianeira: (explaining why she allowed herself to be a human sacrifice) So, of course, it was only natural I'd give my life over to public service. See, my father was this really handsome king who loved me, more than anything in the world. But then, when his kingdom was threatened, he sent me away for my own good. I think he made quite a sacrifice, don't you?
      Hercules: That's a well-known fairy tale, Deianeira. My mother used to tell it to me. Who told it to you?
      Young Deianeira: I told it to myself, all right? You don't think orphans need fairy tales, too?

    • Young Deianeira: (as Hercules prevents her from being sacrificed) What are you doing?! Go away! You're interrupting a religious ceremony.
      Hercules: Yeah, well, if you're sacrificing yourself to the Water God, he's not home. You're wasting your time. (catching her as she falls) See? What'd I tell you? That was close, you almost fell.
      Young Deianeira: I was supposed to fall, you idiot! Didn't you ever see a sacrifice? A maiden, at the height of her fertility, is the only thing that can save the crops!
      Hercules: (skeptically looking at the young woman) So, you're a maiden at the height of her fertility?
