Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Charon: (to Xena) We got everything turned upside down: all the wicked are in the Elysian Fields, all the good guys are down in Tartarus, and now we got tourists already!

    • Toxeus: (Laughing) You ended up with the wicked after all, Xena. I guess it's hard to make up for a lifetime of evil with a few good deeds at the end. Tell me, who had the pleasure of killing you?
      Xena: No one. My horse threw me, and I broke my little neck.

    • Marcus: Nah. I want to be awake for every moment of life I have left to me. You know, you don't realize the kinds of things the living take for granted, until you don't have them anymore. Like the evening air. It just settles on you like a cool blanket. And the sky. There's nothing like it on the other side. You know what I missed most?

    • Gabrielle: Xena!
      Xena: He's in the Elysian fields.
      Gabrielle: You'll be together again one day.
      Xena: We'll never be apart. He's in here, forever.

    • Charon: Who else would be crazy enough to be down here? Mind you, with all the changes that are going on, I could be losing a job soon. Ah-ah-ah-ah! No more Mr. Nice Guy. I refuse to take any more dead people across, unless they got a coin.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Charon complains about people expecting him to take them across the Styx without payment. This is because Hercules had crossed a number of times without payment, either in coin or in one case, livestock (a pig) in the Hercules episode "The Other Side".
