every year after you turn 17 you get further away from being the age of the dancing queen and that’s my least favorite thing about growing up

ah but when you turn 34 you’re two dancing queens and thus having twice the time of your life. and at 51 you become the dancing triumvirate and three golden crowns are forged in your honor

lots to look forward to

In-verse Quotes on THE Relationship (Xena/Gabrielle)


Here’s what other characters on the show had to say about X/G.

Aphrodite: “I hate to break up, like, a major love fest …”

Aphrodite: “If it isn’t my favorite girl group!”

Aphrodite: “Gabrielle, I have to say I’m glad to see you’re still travelling with Xena.  I was afraid that with me away from Olympus [and love gone from the world], you two might not be so close.”
Gabrielle:  “No, we’re—we’re partners.”



Callisto, about to burn Gabrielle, to Xena: “You’re about to watch the friendship of your life go up in smoke.”

Callisto: “Well, we have the perfect bait for that [luring Velasca into a trap]. It’s your precious little Gabrielle she wants.”
Xena, as if that fact weighs on her more than the world would: “I know.”

Callisto: “I long to see you wailing over the body of your friend [Gabrielle]!”
Xena: “Well, it’s not gonna happen.”
Callisto: “Mhm?” [kills Perdicus, Gabrielle’s new husband]
Gabrielle, wailing over the body: “No! Noooo! Perdicus!”
Callisto: “That’ll do!”

Why? Because, Callisto thinks, seeing Gab hurt and knowing it’s indirectly b/c of Xena [via Callisto’s desire for revenge] will hurt Xena enough.

And when Callisto is faced with the prospect of Xena living without Gabrielle for the rest of her life …

, upon witnessing Xena’s reaction to Gab sacrificing herself to save Xena: “I never thought I’d feel so good again!  Seeing poor, dear Gabrielle sacrifice herself makes it all worthwhile. It finally gives me a reason for living—and I have you to thank for it, Xena!” [Xena plunges a knife into Callisto’s heart]



Joxer, deciding he has to stop sleeping with Meg (whom he thinks is Xena): “I’m wrecking one of the great friendships!”

Hope, masquerading as Gabrielle: “What would you make of my feelings towards Xena?”
Joxer: “Xena? Well, YOU know.  You love her more than anybody in the whole world!”
Hope, grumbling:  “More than anyone.”

Joxer to Xena before her wedding to Ares:  “Um, look, I know this is a marriage made in Hades, but I figure we don’t have to abandon EVERY tradition, so—here.  Something old.  It’s a lock of Gabrielle’s hair. […] And I want you to have it.”
Xena, taking it:  “I don’t know what to say.”



Gabrielle: “I know that Hope has to die—no matter the consequences.”
Ares: "Even if that means saying goodbye to your beloved Xena? Think you can just let it happen?  I don’t.”

Ares to Xena, whom he believes to be dead: “You’re with her now… . She knew what you needed—unconditional and unselfish love—and I couldn’t give that to you.  But I appreciated you in ways she never could—your rage—your violence—your beauty. When you sacrificed yourself for others, you were hers—but when you kicked ass, you were mine. I love you, Xena.”

Oh yes, Ares?  In fact, Xena is the one thing Ares and Gabrielle agree on …
Ares: “Is there anything you and I agree on?”
[Gabrielle shoots a wry look towards Xena]
Ares: “Oh, yeah.  Anything else?”

Ares, having proposed marriage to Xena: “What do I have to do to show you I’m serious?”
Xena:  “Die.”
Ares:  “Well, sadly, I’m a god.  I know—a wedding  gift.  Say … Gabrielle.”
[ …]
Ares: "Come on, Xena.  Becoming Mrs. God of War is a small price to pay to find her.”

Ares (lying): “See, Gabrielle made a deal with me.  In exchange for saving Hope’s life, she offered me her soul.  Yeah—you’re right.  It is QUITE a bargaining chip.  Unless we cut a new deal.  So—I have Gabrielle’s soul.  What could you possibly have that I would exchange for that?
Xena:  “You want my soul.”
Ares:  “That could work.  I let Gabrielle live—but you must be my wife in your next life.  And I guess, seeing as how it was one of those in-front-of-the-Fates kind of deals, that would be—forever?  Eternity.”
Xena:  “And you would let Gabrielle and me live out this life in peace?”
Ares:  “Okay—sounds like a deal.  ’Cause you know … she’d do it for you.”



Mael (bad guy of the week): “All you have to do is look at her [Xena] to see she’s unnatural, an affront to God.  A woman with the strength of ten men?  Out in the world alone, save only her scrawny little companion?  It’s a complete abomination!  And to think this FREAK of nature has my brother …” [This is from “Altared States,” which began with Xena and Gabrielle off screen, their clothes scattered on the bushes, having a conversation that was about fishing but sounded like it was about sex.]

Naiyima:  [Alti’s] soul is not destroyed.  It will return many times—filled with evil—but you will always be there to meet it.  And you, Gabrielle.  You both walk a path together.  Think of yourselves as lines in the mendhi—separate but forever connected.  Mendhi contains truth.”


.  .  .  .  SO WHAT ARE THEY?


Callisto: “I can arrange it for you and Gabrielle … to just walk out of here… . And you and Gabrielle can live happily ever after.”
Xena:  “What’s the catch?”
[ … ]
Callisto: “There’s a reason you can’t allow you and your partner peace.  It’s your guilt …”
Xena:  “You’re trying to tempt me from my way by offering me peace.”

Caligula: "Never turn your back on [Xena].  She and that—that—that bard of hers—yeah, like we don’t know what’s goin’ on there, huh?

Lucifer: "You’re a mortal female with a lying tongue, savage tendencies, and a blonde girlfriend …”

Alti, seeing Gabrielle: “Well if it isn’t Xena’s little bitch!”

Caesar, summing up the series: “Had I not betrayed Xena I’d be ruling Rome today. Instead I get stabbed in the back by my good friend Brutus while Xena gets to ride off into the sunset with her girlfriend. Hardly a fitting end to Julius Caesar.”

Alti to Empress Xena: "I saw the way you looked at her [the playwright Gabrielle] tonight during the play.  Wouldn’t Caesar give anything to have you look at him that way."

Odin to Brunnhilda, chastising her for not yet killing Xena: “My ravens, they tell me you’ve fallen in love with her [Xena’s] partner. Is it possible that you thought killing Xena would kill any chance you had with Gabrielle?”
Brunnhilda: “Those mangy stool pigeons.”

Brunnhilda: “Is Xena all you think about?!”
Gabrielle: “Xena is my family. She is the most important thing in my life.”

Gabrielle: “Xena and I have a connection. It’s stronger than either one of us. We’re soul mates.”
Brunnhilda:My love is strong, Gabrielle. I can feel it.”
Gabrielle: “I am trying to tell you that Xena and I are meant to be together. We didn’t make it that way, it just is.”
Xena [in the distance]: “Gabrielle!”
Gabrielle: “Xena!”
Brunnhilda: "I can see your heart lies with Xena, but I’ll prove to you which one of us deserves your love.”

Brunnhilda to Gabrielle: I’ll become an eternal flame for you. Only your true soul mate will be able to pass through the fire. You’ll be safe.”

"Wealthea" (the amnesiac Xena): "This Gabrielle truly loved Xena, didn’t she?"
Beowulf:  "And will till the end of time.  Gabrielle saved you from what you were—as you must now save her.”

Xena, about to attempt to cross the eternal flame:  “Beowulf—if I’m not the one …”
Beowulf:  “You are.  Brunhilda’s flame will recognize you as Gabrielle’s soulmate.”
Brunnhilda as the flame: “Xena … Xena … the love in your heart burns stronger than any flame. You belong together, Xena.”

Nigel, a 20th century reporter: “Gabrielle, Xena. I have only one more question left—the question that Gabrielle has been avoiding all evening—the question that has never, ever been answered.  Are you two … lovers?”
Xena:  “You’re asking—?”
Nigel: “That’s right.  I’m asking, 'Are you two … lovers?’”
Xena: “That’s none of your beeswax, Nigel!”
Gabrielle, soothingly:  “Okay, Xena.  You know … you just risked everything to bring love back into the world.”
Xena: “So what?”
Gabrielle:  ”I think you should answer the question.”
Xena: “Oh, you do, do ya?”
Gabrielle:  “Yeah.”
Xena:  [Sighs] 
Nigel: “W-wait—wait.  Hold it.  Hold it.  [Clears throat]  [Much flirty elbow-nudging and grins occur between Xe and Gab while Nigel addresses the camera] And now, ladies and gentlemen, a world exclusive.  For the first time anywhere, Xena and Gabrielle reveal the true nature of their relationship.  Gabrielle—Xena—are you two … lovers?"
Xena:  “You want the truth?”
Nigel:  “That’s right, Xena.  We want the truth—the whole world wants the truth!”
Xena: [Visual Fades In and Out]:  “It’s like this—[burst of static—TECHNICALLY—[static]”
Nigel’s Voice over static:  “What?  What?”
[Text on black screen: PLEASE STAND BY]
Nigel’s Voice:  “It’s dead?!  The battery—?!  This is the world’s greatest story and you’re telling me the battery is dead?!”

… IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY (“Soul Possession”) … .
XWP Fan #2: “Hey!  Speaking of the Warrior Princess and the bard, what happened when your boyfriend Harry found out he was Xena in his past life—?”
XWP Fan #1: "And that your past-life counselor was none other than his beloved sidekick Gabrielle?”
Annie (the reincarnation of Joxer):  “THEY GOT HITCHED.”
