[After Xerxes offered to make Leonidas Warlord of his Empire, if he would only kneel before him] You are generous as you are divine, oh king of kings. Such an offer only a madman would refuse. But … the idea of kneeling, it's, uh … you see, slaughtering all those men of yours has left a nasty cramp in my leg – so kneeling will be hard for me.
[Xerxes is brought to Leonidas on a massive gold throne carried on the back of his servants] Let me guess. You must be … Xerxes.
Immortals. We'll put their name to the test.

David Wenham
David Wenham (Dilios)
At age 7, as is customary in Sparta, the boy was taken from his mother and plunged into a world of violence, manufactured by 300 years of Spartan warrior society to create the finest soldiers the world has ever known. The agoge, as it's called, forces the boy to fight, starves him, forces him to steal … and if necessary, to kill.
[Regarding Captain Artemis] Upon seeing the headless body of his own young son, the captain breaks rank. He goes wild, blood-drunk. The captain's cries of pain at the loss of his young son are more frightening to the enemy than the deepest battle drums. It takes three men to restrain him and bring him back to our own. The day is ours … no songs are sung.
Our eyes bear witness to the grotesque spectacle brought forth from the furthest corner of Xerxes empire.

Lena Headey
Lena Headey (Queen Gorgo)

Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo in 300 (2006)

Councilmen, I stand before you not only as your queen. I come to you as a mother. I come to you as a wife. I come to you as a Spartan woman. I come to you with great humility. I am not here to represent Leonidas – his actions speak louder than my words ever could. I am here for all those voices which cannot be heard: mothers, daughters, fathers, sons – three hundred families that bleed for our rights, and for the very principles this room was built upon. We are at war, gentlemen. We must send the entire Spartan army to aid our king in the preservation of not just ourselves, but of our children. Send the army for the preservation of liberty. Send it for justice. Send it for law and order. Send it for reason. But most importantly, send our army for hope – hope that a king and his men have not been wasted to the pages of history – that their courage bonds us together, that we are made stronger by their actions, and that your choices today reflect their bravery.
Come back with your shield … or on it. [Last words to her husband, Leonidas, before he and the 300 march off to the Hot Gates, reference to the Spartan saying "'? ''? '? ''? '''" (Doric Greek: "Either it or on it") in reference to the shield]
Your lips can finish what your fingers have started. [Preceding the sex scene]

Rodrigo Santoro
Rodrigo Santoro (Xerxes)
Embrace me as your king and as your god.
It is not the lash they fear, it is my divine power.
Your gods were cruel to shape you so, Ephialtes. But I am kind.

Dialogues from "300"
