- When the Spartans are regrouping after the first battle (read: killing wounded Persian soldiers), and Leonidas receives an offer to parlay:
Leonidas: (takes a bite of an apple, speaks with his mouth full) There's no reason we can't be civil, is there?
Spartan: (stabbing a wounded Persian) None, sire.
- "Clearly, you've never met our women."
- Astinos recalling Stelio's comment about how the Spartans will "fight in the shade" while the Spartans are all hiding under their shields to avoid a sun-blocking barrage of arrows.
