"But who would be that sneaky? Who would want war that bad? (page 321)
"Someone else pulled off the theft."(p321)
"The Prophecy was right." " You shall go west and face the god who has turned"
" You stole the helm and the master bolt."
" You were supposed to die"
"Well, now, I didn't steal them personally."
"The helm of darkness"
'"You gave me the backpack in Denver," I said.' " The master bolt was in there the whole time"
Family war is the best war!
" Yes and No"
Percy, Annabeth and Grover get out of the water and talking about the Prophecy where they have to go West. The see Ares in the distance.
" Fight me yourself, Ares"
Percy and Ares are talking about how Ares stole the "helm of darkness."
"Drop the guns!"
"classic or modern?" "Classic it is."
Now that Ares has the helm of darkness, he tells them his plan to start World War III. Annabeth is ashamed that he wants to fight his family. Ares says "best kind of war. Always the bloodiest. Nothing like watching your relatives fight." Ares tells Percy that "I tinkered with the magic a bit, so the bolt would only return to the sheath once you reached the Underworld."
" Did you guys feel that... whatever it was?"
"Return that to Lord Hades," "Tell him the truth. Tell him to call off the war"
Ares talks about not taking orders from anyone and says he doesn't have dreams. Ares snaps his fingers and a wild boar appears. The boar and Percy fight - Percy wins. Percy wants to fight Ares himself and Ares lets it happen. They make a bet about the lightening bolt and the helm.
While Percy and Ares are fighting - cops come and the Furies are circling above to watch the fight. As Percy is fighting, Ares is pushing him on to land but he needs to get into the water if he wants to win.
Percy wins the fight with Ares and Ares tells him "you have made an enemy, godling." "You have sealed your fate." "You will feel my curse." Furies come down to talk to Percy telling him that he didn't start this war. Before they leave for New York, Percy feels something in the air and knew it must have been something strong that would stop Ares.
