Cast of characters:  Xena, Gabrielle, Joxer, Najara, Arman, and the rest. This episode consists of three storylines.  The continuing evolution of the relationship and the different "ways" that Xena and Gabrielle are currently traveling together.  The other two storylines are between Najara who Gabrielle believes has truly changed from the teaching's of Eli and Joxer who accidentally gets his first kill and how he trying to cope with it.  I never thought I would catch myself saying this, but I have to admit that I wonder if the writers intended on both preaching and a good old fashioned "I told ya so".  I tried to give the best cross of both short memorable clips useful for desktop sounds and longer clips to give the feel and full thoughts being expressed.  Well, enough from me, I hope you enjoy this episode. 
As always, please let me know what ya think. -

  13. Gabrielle- You met Eli...that's amazing.  Xena and I knew him in India...he changed my life.  Najara- I know...the same way he changed mine.  I used to justify my violence by saying it was for good.  Eli taught me that the greater good is to use no violence at all.  448kb wav or 225kb mp3
  14. Gabrielle- But if you've stopped did you escape?  Najara- A divine decree...the Djinn move mysteriously...they prepare a way for those who believe.   So the next washing day I hid amongst the prisoner's laundry, and when they took it to the riverside...I escaped into the water.  480kb wav or 240kb mp3

  18. Gabrielle- Najara's asleep.  Xena- Good.   Did you remember to tie her hands and her feet?  Gabrielle?  Gabrielle- Yes I did.  Xena- Good.  That little smoke compact you made is pretty effective, huh?  Gabrielle- It seems to confuse them.  Xena- Still, I don't like you being in the thick of things knowing you won't fight.  Gabrielle- Xena that's the beauty of my new techniques, I can distract them without hurting anyone.  Best of killing.  Xena- Joxer's still pretty cut up about Criton, you think you can talk to him?  Gabrielle- I don't know what to say.  I keep remembering the first time that I killed.  I know it's strange, but it still hurts.  Xena- Stranger if it didn't.  Gabrielle- I'll try.'d never guess who's been teaching Najara the path of non-violence...Eli.  It's amazing, he's living proof that peace really works.   Are you asleep?  1,406kb wav or 626kb mp3

  20. Gabrielle- Joxer, what you're doing...going to tell Criton's son...I think that's the bravest thing you've ever done.  Joxer- I don't feel brave.  I just feel bad.  204kb wav or 99kb mp3
  21. Gabrielle- I think that your father would want you to stay here and finish school.  Arman- Oh I will, just as soon as I've avenged him.  Xena- Wait!  Arman, as long as you're set on leaving, why don't you travel awhile with us?  454kb wav or 222kb mp3
  22. Gabrielle- Joxer, I'm just saying that he's going to find out sometime.  Joxer- Well fine, but why does it have to be me?   Look, give me one good reason to tell him why his father is a murderer and would have killed me if I hadn't of stopped him?  Xena- Because it's the truth.  Joxer- Well, it would really hurt him.  Gabrielle- It would give him a chance to deal with it in an honest way.  Joxer- It would break his heart.  Xena- She's just suggesting that you do what you said you wanted.  Joxer- I'm not gonna tell him that his father was a murderer.  Every boy needs a hero.  Xena- Then be one.  Joxer- Ok I already killed Criton once, if you guys want to do it again that's fine with me.  837kb wav or 345kb mp3
  23. Gabrielle- This may hurt a bit.  It's important if you want the wounds to heal, you have to keep them clean.  Do you want me to stop?  Najara-'s not just that, it's what you said about healing wounds.  When I think about some of the wounds I've caused...mortal wounds that...that will never be healed.  I feel so ashamed.  Gabrielle- I'm sure that's hard, but Najara you've turned your life around.  Take strength from that.  Najara- The Djinn say the same thing.  Gabrielle- Listen to them.  817kb wav or 392kb mp3
  24. Gabrielle- Starting a hospice would be good for you, but it's not for me.  My place is with Xena.  Najara- I know...and it always will be.  Until her continuing violence makes her do something that even you can't excuse.  Gabrielle- It's not going to happen.  Najara- It has to and then you will have to choose, not between me and Xena, but between Xena and your own soul.  543kb wav or 264kb mp3
  25. Gabrielle- Isn't it better to have peaceful people around who do good than people who fight?  104kb wav or 48kb mp3
  26. Gabrielle- I know there's no excuse for what Najara did...  Xena- Sure there is...she's a nut.   Gabrielle- That was before she met Eli...he showed her the truth.  All she wants to do is heal people, ya know...give them hope.  Xena- Are you saying that we shouldn't take Najara back to prison?  Gabrielle- I just don't see the point if she's already reformed.  Isn't it better to have peaceful people around who do good than people who fight?  Xena- Like me?  Gabrielle- No, I'm not saying that.  Xena, you're trying to find you true Way, your path...well so is Najara.  Xena- Najara doesn't have a path...she follows whatever path her voices tell her to.  You don't believe me...test her.  Say no to her...she'll blow up in your face.  Gabrielle- You have hardly spoken to her...  Xena- I don't have to!  I'm sure that she says all the right things and I'm sure she probably even believes them, but she's a fanatic, Gabrielle...don't trust her.  1,197kb wav or 558kb mp3

  29. Gabrielle- Xena!  Najara- Gabrielle - no!  Gabrielle- No no...she's hurt!  Najara- It's her Way...let her walk it alone.  154kb wav or 75kb mp3
  30. Gabrielle- Do you think she'll ever wake up?  Xena- Who knows...maybe her voice will call her back, huh?  In the meantime, the sisters will keep her comfortable as long as she lives.  Gabrielle- I really thought she had changed.  You did.  Xena- So did you.  394kb wav or 191kb mp3
  31. Gabrielle- Seems that when push comes to shove, the only choice is to shove back.  85kb wav or 42kb mp3

  33. Joxer- I'm gonna tell him.  Xena- Tell who...what?  Joxer- Criton's son.  I'm gonna go to him.  I gonna explain things, I gonna explain everything.  Xena- Joxer, that is a really, really  nobel idea it is.  But the chances of Criton's son understanding about you killing his father are slim to none.  Guess I could come along as back up though. Joxer- No! No! I'll do it myself.   You know what Xena, you're always in everybodies business and this time I'm gonna tell him by myself.  Promise?  Xena- I promise.  757kb wav or 363kb mp3

  37. Joxer- Go Away.  Xena- You talkin' to me?  Joxer- Xena...  Xena- Or are you just beating yourself up over Criton?  Hmm?  Joxer the guilt of killing never goes away, nor should it, but your first kill is definitely the worst.   Joxer- How do you live with it?  Xena- I don't have a choice...and now neither do you.  But doing what you're doing... going and seeing Criton's son, explaining things...that's gotta help.  805kb wav or 395kb mp3

  45. Mayor- ...Then there was the time when Criton fed a man's heart to his dogs...while it was still beating.  Yes sir, it takes a real man to stand up to Criton.  Not to mention the rest of his gang when they get word that he's dead.   Xena- You saying they'll take revenge?  Mayor- You let a man brand you, it figures you're not going to take his death lying down.   If the rumors are true they won't be the only ones.  Xena- Alright, I'll bite...what rumors?  Mayor- About his kid.   Joxer- What kid?  Mayor- Criton's...Word is, when his wife died in childbirth, he had the boy shipped out to the academy.  At least that's the story.  Joxer- Criton has a son?  Xena- Ok, Joxer...the sooner we get outta here, the sooner you'll sleep.

  47. Najara- Truth is...the Djinn stopped talking to me right you and Xena left.  It wasn't until I stopped fighting that they returned.  That's how I knew it was right.  Gabrielle- And what made you stop?  Najara- A while ago...a man came to our prison, he had just returned from India.   And he spoke of a way of life that seemed so right to me...a way of peace...a way to break what he called...  Gabrielle- The cycle of violence.   You met Eli.  That's amazing...Xena and I knew him in India.  273kb wav or 442kb mp3

  50. Najara- You claimed to have changed...why can't I?  Afterall, we both had the same inspiration, Gabrielle.  Xena- Ugh.  Najara- But unlike you I've changed my whole life for her, you just changed sides.  Xena- You hurt Gabrielle, and I'll change you in ways that are anything but peaceful.   Najara- You forget...hurting Gabrielle is your job.  Or have those visions gone away?  You know, the visions of your death and hers?  I want to share a life of peace with Gabrielle, you want to share a violent death.  You tell me who is the villain or you?  709kb wav or 306kb mp3

  53. Navitiate- That woman risked her life trying to free us.   When Criton caught and beat her, she never even raised a hand against him.   She's not a criminal...she's a saint.  Xena- Then maybe you and your friends would help us rig a litter for your saint.  A few good size branches outta do it.  345kb wav or 150kb mp3

  63. Xena- Going someplace?  Arman- Anyplace you're not.  Xena- Well that's your choice, but before you make it you might want to ask yourself who it was that Joxer really killed?  Arman- father.  Xena- That's one point of view...there's always another Arman.  In your dreams your father was Criton the courageous, but the man that Joxer killed was dirt.  Arman, you don't need that dream anymore, you're one hundred times the man your father ever was.  605kb wav or 280kb mp3
