[thunder crashes]

[war cries]

[agonized scream]

[swords clash]

[grunts]

Agamemnon calls you for

a war council.

I shall join you.

Give me one more moment.

NARRATOR:
Tell me, oh, muse,

of that ingenious hero

who traveled far and wide

after he sacked

the famous town of Troy.

After 10 years of

Agamemnon's bloody siege,

it is only wise Odysseus

who could bring down

the golden civilization.

I love you, Penelope,

my little Bastet cat.

[Penelope laughs softly]

I love you more than

the air, and the wind.

I love you more

than life itself.

And I you, my handsome

husband, my pirate.

[both laugh]

He's strong like his father.

We shall name him Telemachus,

to a great warrior.

Oh, better to teach him

how to use his mind

like his father does.

[distant fanfare]

It is Agamemnon.

It is too soon.

When he calls to war,

it is my duty

to fight alongside him.

In the name of Athenae,

promise me you will come back.

That is up to the gods.

But I do promise, as long

as there is breath

left in my lungs, I shall

strive to return to you.

The time for

bedding your wife is over.

It's time to prepare for war.

[Odysseus sighs]

Should I not return,

give this to my son

when he becomes king.

Oh. Wait.

May the gods give you fortune.

Goodbye, my love.

The next time you see her,

your name will be sculpted

in the stones of history.

I wouldn't worry

about your wife.

With your Ithacan troops

and my Greek forces,

we'll have over 1,000 ships.

Troy will fall.

You'll be home in a month.

Oh! [gasping]

Ohh!

Ohh! Ohh!

[screams]

[panting, screaming]

King Agamemnon!

We must return home.

The Trojan wall

cannot be penetrated.

I'll never surrender!

I'm a cuckold on

this flamboyant nation!

My Helen, my bride,

my property,

lies with the dirtiest,

slimiest creature of them all.

We cannot breach the gates

with a frontal attack.

If it is your wish to die to

quell your shame, Agamemnon,

then why don't you charge

the wall like your men

and face the slings and arrows

of these flamboyant Trojans?

[laughs]

Achilles, I am a king.

- It's 10 years of war!

- The gods must love you so.

If the gods loved me,

I'd be home with my wife.

Maybe if you fought with

your heart and your testicles!

Stop! Stop! Stop!

The wall is impenetrable!

I see the Trojans ride

in and out all day!

If they can do it,

so can we!

Is there a brain

inside that head?

Achilles...

...he does make

a good argument.

And you've lost your

brain as well?

No.

We have to figure a way

to get in with the Trojans.

And how do you suggest

we do that?

Perhaps there is a way.

The Trojans are

a vain people, yes?

Extremely vain.

They build these statues

and put them in their plazas.

They love their statues,

their trophies.

They use them to signify

their greatness.

What if...

we were to give them a trophy

they could not resist?

It would have to be

a very large trophy.

One that would flatter

them the most.

Exactly.

- What?

- What are you talking about?

Speak plainly.

Agamemnon, if I open

the gates of Troy

to your army,

might I return home

and never be forced

to war again?

If you bring

the destruction of Troy,

I promise you as a king

you can go home to Ithaca

with your family in peace.

- We have a plan!

- Men?

[breathing heavily]

We have been

walking forever.

Where is this great thing

you speak of?

It is just ahead,

Your Majesty.

[insects buzzing]

An offering?

The Greeks have

fled like cowards!

A gift from the Greeks

cannot be trusted.

Let's burn it at the temple

and invoke the curse

of the Kraken.
