Return of Callisto
(1) She unbuckled the collar around her neck, lifted the band that immobilized her head and snapped the leather, ankle restraints. (2) Her jailer made the mistake of going into her cell after she threatened to make him squeal like a pig. That wouldn't have happened if her mouth had been covered.
(3) He executed the prisoners who were too frail to join Callisto's army. He was also asked to bring the chair. (4) They tried to tell him that it was ribbed with iron. (5) She wanted him to deliver a message to Xena (every drop of blood that she spilled from here on out was on her hands).

(6) Gabrielle told Xena, "I've never known anyone I've been so comfortable around… besides you." (7) No, it didn't (8) Xena put herself in harm's way to save a child from Callisto's dagger. (9) Callisto blew Xena a kiss on the battlefield, Gabrielle kissed Perdicus when they became husband and wife, Xena congratulated Perdicus with a kiss on the cheek and Xena gave her good friend a peck on the lips after she sighed, "I'm not going to let you say goodbye."

The symbols represented the horses he owned, Argento and Scarto. One faced east, the other west.
 
Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?

2. Remember the mask that was placed over Hannibal Lecter's (Anthony Hopkins) face in The Silence of the Lambs? Of course, you do. Callisto may not have escaped if she had been fitted with a similar device. Why?

3. Theodorus (David Te Rare) freed the other prisoners at Callisto's request after he was set free. He also gathered the men that became her army. Two other orders were carried out. What were they?

4. Most anyone could split an ordinary barrel in two with a heavy sword or an axe of some kind, provided there was enough muscle behind it. What did a couple of kids try to warn Joxer (Ted Raimi) about before he attempted that feat?

5. If Joxer were dropped into a Friday the 13th flick, where dim-witted characters are sliced and diced to everyone's delight, he
The contraption that Callisto (Hudson Leick) escaped from in the episode's opening sequence included six restraints. Only two of those were severed. How did she free herself from the others?

Ridley Scott, 2000
Mind if we push our way through towards the frontline? It's not to join the legion of Roman soldiers at Maximus' (Russell Crowe) command. Heck no, it's just to report on who's wearing what before they're drenched in blood. There were two, nearly identical symbols on the breastplate that Maximus wore. Describe what they were, how they differed from one another and what they represented.
wouldn't stand a chance of making it to the final act. Had the script for this episode passed through our hands, the "Mighty" would have fallen in the chapter entitled The Answer's Yes. Why did Callisto spare his life?

6. Sensitive, kind… those were some of the qualities that Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor) fell in love with. Perdicus (Scott Garrison) also had this going for him, which was why she married him. What are we referring to?

7. There was some doubt as to whether or not Gabrielle would accept Perdicus' marriage proposal. Did that change when Xena (Lucy Lawless) remarked, "Let me set your mind at rest. Seeing you happy will make me happy"?

8. Callisto thought she had an advantage over her nemesis because Xena fought with her heart. We don't know about the
former, but the latter was certainly true. What action underscored that point?

9. Walk this way, talk this way. Just give me a kiss, like this! Let's say that Aerosmith tune was heard prior to each kiss. We counted four. How many do you remember?

10. Who was talking to whom when the following words were spoken: "You're going to miss her, aren't you?"


A. Joxer said that to Xena
B. Perdicus said that to Gabrielle
C. Theodorus said that to a guard in reference to Callisto.
