Pentheus, Leonidas' Second in Command:
He saved my life, Leonidas.



Leonidas, Spartan King:
I know that. He also disobeyed orders.


[to Phylon]



Leonidas, Spartan King:
In wartime, the punishment is death. You know that Phylon.



Phylon, son of Grellas:
Yes.



Leonidas, Spartan King:
So death it will be.


[to Agathon]



Leonidas, Spartan King:
Get him his armor and a red cloak. That's the only way for Spartans to die these days.

Narrator:
Across the hush of 24 centuries, this is the story of a turning point in history, of a blazing day when 300 Greek warriors fought here to hold with their lives their freedom and ours.

Themistocles of Athens:
The whole of Asia is descending upon us. Many times more men than there are Greeks. These men are fierce, savage, bloodthirsty, merciless. But that is not the reason why we should fear them. That is not the source of their power. Their power lies in their unity. Unity! Remember that one terrible word which will surely destroy Greece, unless we counter it with a unity of our own. A unity of free men fighting together resisting this united tide of tyranny.

Leonidas, Spartan King:
The council must act quickly



Xenathon, Spartan Isolationist:
Why?



Leonidas, Spartan King:
In order that we Spartans may reach the first line of defense in time.



Xenathon, Spartan Isolationist:
And where might that be?



Leonidas, Spartan King:
The Pass of Thermopylae.



Xenathon, Spartan Isolationist:
Thermopylae, of course. That's the pass that protects Athens.



Leonidas, Spartan King:
No! It's the pass that protects GREECE! Mere cities don't matter now. It is Greece that counts! Only by being united can we hope to avoid slavery. Now, I am no politician, but I will plead this cause with you until the moon wanes and the night brings forth a new day!

Demaratus, Exiled Spartan King:
The Spartans will certainly fight, whether reinforcements arrive or not.



Xerxes, Persian King:
Why, they are mad. I cannot think why you would want to be king of such an extraordinary people, Demaratus. I shall capture them alive and put them in cages and exhibit them all over Persia.
