Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters—Quotes
Percy: Every day the story of Thalia’s bravery inspires me.
Mr. D pours a glass of wine which turns to water, a result of a curse, and asks: How long can he hold a grudge?
Chiron: I think the fact that he’s immortal means there’s no end to how long he can hold a grudge.
Mr. D: You know, the Christians have a God who can do this trick in reverse. [i.e. turn water into wine.] Now that’s a God.
To Percy: You’re more than a one-quest-wonder!
Mr. D: Perry Johnson—
Percy: Actually, it’s Percy Jackson
Percy, talking to his Dad, Poseidon: Have you eve felt like everything you’ve ever done, you didn’t really do it? Like maybe it was all just luck or something? No, of course not. You’re a god. Sucks being human. Well…good not talking to you. As always.
Percy: Cyclops? Come on.
Grover: I think the term is ocularly impaired.
Clarisse to Percy: Maybe Poseidon thought he needed another son to, you know, represent.
Tyson to the bull after being torched by him: Bad bull.
Luke to Percy: So you don’t know [about the prophecy]? Add that to the list of things they haven’t told you. We’re just pawns…
Clarisse, deadpan, when she learns Percy is still alive: Yay. You’re alive.
Hermes: Knowledge isn’t always power, Percy. Sometimes it’s a burden.
Chiron: It’s said that when the gods wish to torture us, they speak to us.
Kronos ate his children. Three escaped
Percy: Raze. And that is raze with a “z” as in destroy. I asked.
Percy: Guess you don’t have any answers, Dad.
Percy: The oracle says I’m destined to save Olympus or destroy it.
Tyson: Saving’s better!
Percy: Where we’re going—it’s dangerous.
Tyson: I know. I’m not stupid.
Annabeth: No, just dumb.
Grover when Tyson appears to have two normal eyes: Extreme makeover alert—woo woo!
Annabeth: Chariot of damnation.
Percy: Looks like a New York cab.
Annbeth: Same difference
Cab drivers: You know? The kid’s right. The driver should get the eyeball. The kid’s genius!
Grover: If you haven’t had nectar, you haven’t lived.
Tyson, as he drinks the nectar: I’ve lived!
Percy: I’m looking for Hermes.
Hermes: Sorry to be the god of the obvious, but I’m busy right now.
Hermes: Didn’t know if you noticed, but I’m killing these shorts.
Snake on Hermes staff: How am I supposed to type? I don’t have fingers.
Other snake on Hermes staff: You’re supposed to use the mouse!
First snake: I’m a snake. I EAT mice!
Hermes to Percy: Try. If it’s one thing I’ve learned in 3,000 years, it’s you can’t give up on family.
Tyson: It’s water! Dad will help!
Percy: Nice try big guy, but don’t be upset when he doesn’t answer.
Percy to Annabeth: Smart!
Annabeth: Goddess of Wisdom’s daughter, remember?
Tyson, eagerly: I remember!
Luke: Wasn’t easy to find. I had to climb through the depths of Hades…and then through Cleveland.
Luke: What are you doing? Don’t walk on my roof!
Annabeth to Percy after he trusted Tyson with the thermos of the four winds: I wouldn’t have trusted him with a normal thermos.
Annabeth about why she dislikes Tyson: A Cyclops killed Thalia. His kind killed her.
Annabeth in the belly of Charybdis: This has to be the worst way to die. Ever.
Percy: You’re right. This really is the worst way to die. Ever.
Percy: You gotta have faith, right?
Tyson: And a canon!
Grover: Aye Aye! [Sees Tyson, a Cyclops and catches himself]—sorry!
Tyson as they enter the destroyed amusement park: At least there’s no line!
Clarisse: This must be the boulder he used to stop Odysseus from returning to the Trojan War. Yeah. That’s right. I know stuff.
To Grover: Why are you wearing a dress?
Grover: I’m having a really bad day. [To the bad Cyclops] Hey Cyclopsees—I quit!
Cyclops: Hey wait – you’re a dude??? That explains a lot!
Percy regarding Tyson: I never called him brother. All I ever wanted was a brother, but I was too caught up in myself.
Annabeth to Percy: Forget about the oracle. You don’t like your destiny? Write a new one!
Clarisse: She’s right.
Annabeth and Percy: What?
Clarisse: There’s no way I’m going to repeat that.
Percy: Why me? I mean, who voted me leader? [Everyone raises their hands.]
Percy: I make my own destiny.
Annabeth to Tyson: You’re alive! So, what you did for Percy…that was not so vicious, dangerous.
Percy: Finding out you have a destiny is a lot like finding out you have a half brother who’s a Cyclops. Might not be as bad as you think.
