Greek Soldier : My king, Achilles is not with the army.
Agamemnon : Where is he?
Greek Soldier : I sent a boy to look for him.
Agamemnon : I see you're not hiding behind your high walls. Valiant of you. Ill-advised, but valiant.
Hector : You come here uninvited. Go back to your ships and go home.
Agamemnon : We've come too far, Prince Hector.
Menelaus : Prince? What prince? What son of a king would accept a man's hospitality, eat his food, drink his wine, embrace him in friendship, and then steal his wife in the middle of the night?
Paris : The sun was shining when your wife left you.
Menelaus : She's up there, watching, isn't she? Good. I want her to watch you die.
Agamemnon : Not yet, brother. Look around you, Hector. I brought all the warriors of Greece to your shores.
Nestor : You can still save Troy, young prince.
Agamemnon : I have two wishes. If you grant them, no more of your people need die. First, you must give Helen back to my brother. Second, Troy must submit to my command, to fight for me whenever I call.
Hector : You want me to look upon your army and tremble? Well I see them. I see 50,000 men brought here to fight for one man's greed.
Agamemnon : Careful boy, my mercy has limits.
Hector : And I've seen the limits of your mercy and I tell you now, no son of Troy will ever submit to a foreign ruler.
Agamemnon : Then every son of Troy shall die.
Nestor : One more thing, we need Achilles and his Myrmidon.
Agamemnon : Achilles? He can't be controlled. He's as likely to fight us as the Trojans.
Nestor : We don't need to control him, we need to unleash him. That man was born to end lives.
Agamemnon : Yes, he's a gifted killer. But he threatens everything I've built. Before me, Greece was nothing. I brought all the Greek kingdoms together. I created a nation out of fire worshippers and snake eaters! I build the future Nestor, Me! achilles is the past. A man who fights for no flag. A man loyal to no country.
Nestor : How many battles have we won off the edge of his sword? This will be the greatest war the world has ever seen. We need the greatest warrior.
Agamemnon : There's only one man he'll listen to.
