Hera, Queen of the Gods: I warned you, Jason; this is Hercules’ doing. Telos will try to kill all of you.
Jason, Leader of the Argonauts: How can I fight him?
Hera, Queen of the Gods: Think before you waste the gift of the Gods.
Jason, Leader of the Argonauts: Against the Man of Bronze, our weapons are useless! I repeat that question.
Hera, Queen of the Gods: Then I must answer it: fight Telos with your wits rather than your courage.

And look to his ankles.
Jason, Leader of the Argonauts: His ankles?
Hera, Queen of the Gods: There is nothing else I can tell you.

Hercules, Argonaut: Jason!
Jason, Leader of the Argonauts: You’ve disobeyed my orders!

Jason, Leader of the Argonauts: Go ahead to these rocks — but stay out of reach!
Acastus, Argonaut: And what will you do?
Jason, Leader of the Argonauts: I shall hide here, Acastus.
Acastus, Argonaut: And I shall do my very best to send him to you, Jason. My very best.
