Troy (2004) Quotes
That boy may have just saved the war for us.
The man wants to die!
The Gods only protect the strong.
Peace is for women and the weak.
It's a beautiful night.
Patroclus : Nervous?
Achilles : Petrified.
The gods envy us.
Is there no one else? Is there no one else?
You are a far better king than the one leading this army.
Get up, Prince of Troy! I won't let a stone rob me of my glory!
If I hurt you, it's not what I wanted
We will meet again, my brother.
Imagine a king who fought his own battles! That would be a sight!
Agamemnon : Good day for the crows.
Triopas : Remove your army from my land.
Agamemnon : Why, I like your land, I think we'll stay. I like your soldiers too.
Triopas : They won't fight for you.
Agamemnon : That's what the Messenians said, and the Acardians, and the Opeians, now they all fight for me.
Triopas : You can't have the whole world, Agamemnon. It's too big, even for you.
Agamemnon : I don't want to watch another massacre. Let's settle this war in the old manner. Your best fighter against my best.
Triopas : And if my man wins?
Agamemnon : We'll leave Thessaly for good.
Triopas : Boagrius
Agamemnon : Achilles!
Triopas : Boagrius has this effect on many heroes.
Agamemnon : Be careful who you insult, old king.
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.
Agamemnon : Achilles is one man!
Odysseus : Hector is one man! Look what he did to us today!
Agamemnon : Hector fights for his country! Achilles fights only for himself!
Odysseus : I don't care about the man's alliegence, I care about his ability to win battles!
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.
I almost lost this war because of your little romance.
Agamemnon : You'll be my slave in Mycenae. A Trojan priestess scrubbing my floors. And at night...
May the gods keep the wolves in the fields and the women in our beds.
Messenger Boy : Are the stories true? They say your mother was an immortal godess. They say you can't be killed.
Achilles : I wouldn't be bothering with the shield then, would I?
Messenger Boy : The Thesselonian you're fighting... he's the biggest man i've ever seen. I wouldn't want to fight him.
Achilles : Thats why no-one will remember your name.
I'll tell you a secret. Something they don't teach you in your temple. The Gods envy us. They envy us because we're mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we're doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again.
You gave me peace in a lifetime of war.
Achilles : You're still my enemy in the morning.
Priam : You're still my enemy tonight. But even enemies can show respect.
Myrmidons! My brothers of the sword! I would rather fight beside you than any army of thousands! Let no man forget how menacing we are, we are lions! Do you know what's waiting beyond that beach? Immortality! Take it! It's yours!
Achilles : Who are you?
Priam : I have endured what no one on earth has endured before. I kissed the hands of the man who killed my son.
Achilles :Priam? How did you get in here?
Priam : I know my country better than the Greeks, I think.
Achilles : You are a brave man. I could have your head on a spit in the blink of an eye.
Priam : Do you really think death frightens me now? I watched my eldest son die, watched you drag his body behind your chariot. Give him back to me. He deserves a proper burial, you know that. Give him to me.
Achilles : He killed my cousin.
Achilles : He thought it was you. How many cousins have you killed? How many sons and fathers and brothers and husbands? How many, brave Achilles?
Briseis : Why did you choose this life?
Achilles : What life?
Briseis : To be a great warrior.
Achilles : I chose nothing. I was born and this is what I am.
Achilles : Go home, prince. Drink some wine, make love to your wife. Tomorrow, we'll have our war.
Hector : You speak of war as if it's a game. But how many wives wait at Troy's gates for husbands they'll never see again?
Achilles : Perhaps your brother can comfort them. I hear he's good at charming other men's wives.
Flank! To the flank!
Patroclus : Is Ajax going to fight in Troy?
Odysseus : Of course. You've heard of Ajax, eh?
Patroclus : They say he can fell an oak tree with one swing of his axe.
Achilles : Trees don't swing back.
