Iolaus: "We're talkin' about Amazons, here."
Narrator: "Previously, on 'Young Hercules.'
Cyane's Voice: "We've finally found a place we can-- call our own. We can-- "
Cyane: "-- finally be at peace."
Hercules: "I'm really happy for you, Cyane."
Simula: "Help! The beast attacked and dragged them away!"
Cyane: "Who did this?"
Cheiron: "I know of no such attack."
Cavil: "You see? It has ever been so between the Amazons and us. Their cunning against our strength. They accuse us of the very crimes that they commit."
Lilith: "What?!" [Screams]
Discord: "My plan is working-- perfectly."
Strife: "They're suffering. Uncle Ares is gonna be so pleased with us!"
Cyane: "You must go. You must go find Cheiron and tell him that the attacks-- must cease, and restitution paid-- or there _will_ be war!"
Hercules's Voice: "Somethin' doesn't add up, here. If I only had enough time to figure this all out."
Lilith: "What if you don't?"
Hercules: "The two people that I care about are gonna spend tomorrow trying to destroy each other."
Strife: "This war is on!"
Narrator: "Now, on Young Hercules-- "
Discord: "The Amazons think the Centaurs have attacked them-- and the Centaurs-- think the Amazons attacked them. Mortals are so clueless. I love it when my plans cause pain."
Strife: [Clears throat]: "_My_ plan."
Discord: "OK-- our plan?"
Strife: "I feel gloriously-- loathesome. Uncle Ares is gonna be _so_-- what the-- ?"
Ares: "-- very, very upset."
Discord: "What's your problem?"
Strife: "You know? I bet he hates your little scheme." [Screams]
Ares: "No, it's not bad, except for-- one, tiny detail."
Discord: "Lemme guess-- the Amazons."
Ares: "Who said you could mess with my favorite mortals?"
Strife: "Maybe next time-- you'll listen to me." [Screams]
Discord: "OK-- so maybe Strife did get a little carried away. But after all-- the last time I checked-- dear Brother-- you were the god of war?"
Strife: "Swords-- spears-- mayhem. I mean-- all that great war stuff. Isn't that worth a few Amazons?"
Ares: "Hmm. War. Amazons. Amazons, war. War is good. OK, carry on. But guys-- one last thing-- "
Strife: "Oh, uh, uh, uh, uh-- be sure to wash your hands after every conquest."
Ares: "Hercules! That sniveling, half-mortal spawn of Zeus-- Daddy's coddled favorite--"
Strife: "-- that you despise?"
Ares: "Don't-- and let me repeat this-- don't-- underestimate Hercules."
Strife: [Whispers]: "OK."
Discord: "I'm way ahead of you."
Discord's Voice: "Our miserable little half-brother's about to be history."
Lilith: "You haven't said a word in the last two miles."
Hercules: "Cheiron's only given the Amazons until dawn, tomorrow to get out of Centaur territory."
Lilith: "This is Amazon land, now! And we aren't gonna be chased off by anyone. If the Centaurs want a war, then fine, we'll give 'em one!"
Hercules: "There's got to be a better way, Lilith."
Lilith: "There isn't! They've been hunting us down, and all we wanna do is live in peace!"
Hercules: "The Centaurs say the Amazons have been doing same thing to them!"
Lilith: "Oh, and you believe them?!"
Hercules: "I just don't wanna see people I care about die!"
Lilith: "That's not true! You're just taking that Centaur's side!"
Hercules: "His name is Cheiron! He used to mean something to you, Lilith! He was more than just a teacher to you, and he _cared_ about you!"
Hercules's Voice: "Lilith!"
Hercules: "Lilith! Lilith? Centaur tracks."
Iolaus's Voice: "OK, so let me get this straight. You're deep inside Centaur territory. Lilith is suddenly missing. There are Centaur tracks-- all over her last known location-- but the Centaurs are innocent."
Iolaus: "Herc-- what's wrong with this picture?"
Hercules: "What's wrong with this picture is that no one's looking at the whole picture. Somebody planted those tracks."
Iolaus: "What? With their handy-dandy, little hoofprint-makers?"
Hercules: "We both know that Cheiron's too honorable to lie."
Iolaus: "He wouldn't know where to start."
Hercules: "I haven't known Cyane very long, but I know that she wouldn't lie to send her people into battle."
Iolaus: "Yeah, but they both _can't_ be telling the truth."
Hercules: "Whoever took Lilith, left scorch marks on a tree branch. The Amazons don't fight with fire. Neither do the Centaurs."
Iolaus: "So-- it's gotta be-- "
Hercules and Iolaus: "-- a setup-- "
Hercules: "-- that's right. See, she's gotta listen to us, now."
Cyane: "Lilith was from your own academy. Your blood should boil to avenge her."
Hercules: "Don't you see-- that somebody wants this rage?"
Iolaus: "Yeah, someone wants this war."
Cyane: "Who? Do ya have proof?"
Simula: "Of course, the boys don't. The Centaur leader is their teacher! He probably betrayed Lilith, himself!"
Hercules: "All I ask, is that you talk to Cheiron about what's really goin' on here, before you start something that you won't be able to stop!"
Cyane: "Don't lecture me about war! You may play at it in a schoolyard, but I've seen the real thing, OK?!"
Hercules: "Then you know _exactly_ how important it is to find another way!"
Simula: "There is no other way! It has ever been so between the Centaurs and us-- their cunning against our strength-- their _lies_ against our truth. They accuse us of the very crimes that _they_-- commit!"
Hercules [Aside to Iolaus]: "Where have I heard that before?"
Simula: "I say there is only one way to deal with Centaurs!"
Amazons: "War! War! War! War! War! War! War!"
Simula and Amazons: "War!"
Amazons: "War! War! War! War! War! Come on! War! Come on! War!"
Cyane: "My first duty is to my people. We attack at dawn."
Hercules: "I don't know what to do. You know? Both sides are so blinded by hate and mistrust, that they won't listen."
Iolaus: "Well-- you know, if you wanna trick someone, you make them so angry, they can't think straight, and-- sure, they'd do anything you want."
Hercules: "I think someone on both sides knows your trick."
Iolaus: "Where are you going?"
Hercules: "I may be able to stop this-- but if I'm not back by dawn-- "
Iolaus: "Back?! Back from where?!"
Hercules: "Stay here-- and do anything you can to stop this war!"
Simula: "Looking for me? Yah!"
Hercules: "How is it that an Amazon and a Centaur speak the exact same words?"
Simula: "When trying to start a war? Get a clue, Bro. [Morphs] I'm Discord-- the half-sister you're gonna wish you never had."
Hercules: "Sister? How big a family do I have? Well, just wait till Cyane finds out, Sis."
Discord: "And how's that supposed to happen? It'll be a trusted Amazon's word against yours."
Hercules: "Where are the missing Amazons and Centaurs?! Where?!"
Discord: "OK! Just-- back off! They're in the cavern of Hephaestus' torch! But, you'll never free them-- and get back by dawn."
Hercules: "We'll see about that!"
Strife: "Just wait till Uncle Ares finds out that _you've_ got a big mouth!"
Discord: "You mean, that I've just sent Hercules to his doom?"
Strife: "Uh-huh. [Laughs, then Screams] Phew. Whew."
Discord: "I think I can take the heat."
Hercules: "Lilith! Cavil?"
Hercules: "OK. Hi. Lilith."
Lilith: "Hercules-- how did you find us?"
Hercules: "A little goddess told me. Hephaestus sure does do solid work. Listen-- is there a key?"
Lilith: "Hercules, look out!" [Screams]
Hercules: "I knew Discord gave up too easily."
Lilith: "Look out! Cavil! Hercules! Remember what Cheiron says! Attack the archer-- not the arrow!"
Hercules: "Right. Thanks for the tip."
Lilith: "Looks like you were right all along. Ahh-- maybe you cadets-- aren't such a lame bunch-- after all."
Hercules: "Well-- not all of us, anyway."
Cyane: "Your squad will destroy the Centaur rear guard, and then drive their main body into the woods."
Amazon: "Cyane-- the boy-- Iolaus-- requests an audience."
Cyane: "Hercules is not in camp. Has his loyalty to Cheiron led him to change sides?"
Iolaus: "Hercules doesn't have a side. Cyane, please listen to me. Look, I know a con when I see one, and this has 'Setup' chiseled all over it."
An Amazon: "Your Majesty! The Centaur scouts have taken the field."
Iolaus: "You gotta give Herc more time. Come on, he's a good guy, and he cares a lot about you."
Cyane: "Put him somewhere."
Iolaus: "Wait. Cyane! Cyane! It's not too late! Don't _do_ this! You're makin' a mistake!"
Cyane: "Begin the attack!"
Cheiron's Voice: "Steady, Brothers."
Centaur's Voice: "Amazons! Amazons!"
Amazon's Voice: "Archers, release! Release! Again!"
Cheiron: "Take a squad and stop those archers! We can't let them force us into the trees, where the Amazons have the advantage! Go! Take care!"
Centaur's Voice: "The advance guard is already in position!"
Cyane: "Half of you attack. Force them this way."
Hercules: "That was some quick thinkin' back there."
Lilith: "So, I'm a good warrior-- huh?"
Hercules: "Well-- that's what you wanted."
Lilith: "I was so excited when I joined the Amazons. I mean, they were real warriors! And, you know? They accepted me-- a sword or an arrow solved every problem."
Hercules: "It's never that easy."
Cyane: "I'll destroy you for what you've done to my people, Cheiron."
Cheiron: "Ahh! Your lies will stain the honor of this battlefield! Leave, or face obliteration!"
Strife: "Wow. [Laughs] Look at them go at each other."
Discord: "You know what? The destruction of one leader at the hand of the other-- might be just the touch we need."
Strife: "Of course! That means the losing side would never-- you know-- make peace. So-- who wins?"
Cyane: "Leave these lands forever, Cheiron, or breathe your last."
Cheiron: "Kill me, and another Centaur will take my place. Injustice cannot abide."
Strife: "Is it my imagination, or is your doomed half-brother still alive?!"
Hercules: "I can prove that you've been tricked! Stop fighting and listen!"
Strife: "'Stop fighting.'"
Simula: "Don't listen to him! We must avenge our dead sisters!"
Simula: "You mean us?"
Iolaus: "No, it's just a scratch. You'll be OK."
Simula: "Oh-- where did you get those fakes?"
Hercules: "Don't ask."
Strife: "I think they're onto us." [Laughs]
Discord: "Well, they are now."
Discord: "You really _blew_ it, this time."
Strife: "Oh! Me?! Well, you wait until I tell Uncle Ares that 'Little Miss Drama Goddess' spilled the beans to Hercules!"
Discord: "If you live that long."
Ares: "Start talkin', and make it good!"
Centaur: "Ah-- thanks."
Hercules: "Well-- it seems like we're always saying goodbye, huh?"
Cyane: "Well-- it doesn't-- it doesn't have to be that way."
Hercules: "You know I can't stay. I have to go back with Cheiron, and you have to lead your people."
Cyane: "You have the heart of an Amazon. I pray our paths will cross again. You know? Since the-- the-the Fates haven't allowed us much time, we should-- probably-- use it-- quite wisely."
Iolaus: "Hey, um-- Herc. Whoa!"
Hercules: "Oh, uh--"
Hercules: "Ha-ha-- Iolaus."
Iolaus: "Well, this is awkward." [They laugh.]
Hercules: "You know? We, uh-- really should talk about your timing, you know?"
Iolaus: "Yeah. Sorry, but, uh-- Cheiron wants to see ya."
Cheiron: "Sometimes-- emotions cloud reason. And even a teacher forgets lessons he's taught for so long. You reminded me of them-- and I thank you."
Lilith: "Hey, you guys? Hey, you aren't leaving without me, were you?"
Iolaus: "You're going back to the academy?"
Iolaus: "That's great."
Lilith: "Yeah, well, there may be a few things left for-- Cheiron to teach me. Hey, I understand what you meant, now. I mean, I'll never be-- one of the boys, but-- well, being different isn't always bad."
Cheiron: "It can be your burden or your strength. It's up to you."
Iolaus: "Ooh-- ah! Herc! Can't we stay a little longer?! Please? I mean, I-I really think I can learn a lot from the Amazons, you know? Like-- I think I could-- really fit in here."
Hercules: "Well-- I hate to tell you this, Iolaus-- but you'd never pass the physical."
