Aeneas's Wall

Wall

It's great being a god.

Dido

Glad you're having such a great time, jerk.

Dido, you know I had to go! I had to help spawn Rome.

Dido

Yeah, I'm sure you did a lot of spawning.

Lavinia

Lay off my husband, you Carthaginian minx.

Dido

He's so great, huh? And why aren't you a goddess? Why are you stuck down in the Underworld with me?

Leave my boy alone, Dido.

Dido

This is more your fault than his! Why would you make me fall in love with somebody who you knew had to leave?

The day love is convenient is the day it loses its power.

Whoa, that was deep, Mom.

Totes.

I left my golden apple pie on the windowsill and now it's gone. I suspect a Harpy.

Harriet the Harpy

How dare you, sir!

That's what your kind does. You're all the same.

Harriet the Harpy

I'd call that racial profiling.

It's ridiculous that Odysseus is a more popular hero than me. Clearly, I'm superior.

Odysseus

Yeah, that's why your city is rubble.

Whatever. It's because of your underhanded wooden horse strategy. Totally unacceptable hero behavior.

Odysseus

Being a sore loser isn't very heroic either.

Ajax

He's right, Odysseus. You are a crap hero.

Odysseus

So you're siding with a Trojan now?

Ajax

When he's right, he's right.

Odysseus

Are you still upset about me getting the armor of Achilles? Really?

You guys can take your pathetic Greek problems off of my wall. And for the record Odysseus, my descendents founded Rome, and Rome conquered Greece. So there.
