We just celebrated Hercules’ twentieth birthday on June 15, 2017. Wow, how time flies. I can remember taking my children to see this in theatres and falling in love with the Muses. Those girls can sing!
My favorite line from that movie is when we meet Megara. She is being beaten by the Centaur, as he scoops her up, throws her down and finally holds her in his strong grasp. Hercules rushes in to be the hero. Megara retorts, “I’m a damsel, I’m in distress, I can handle this.”
I love that line. I have used it multiple times in my life, when my job gets overwhelming, my boss is asking for more than I can give, my kids are complaining or I’ve lost that loving feeling. This line, more than any other, gets me going and convinced that I don’t need Hercules to rescue me, I am strong enough myself.
What is your favorite line from this movie?
