- Chiron: Percy, take this to defend yourself. It's a powerful weapon. Guard it well. Only use it in times of severe distress.
- Percy Jackson: This is a pen. This is a pen.
- Chiron: [quietly to Grover] They found him. He's in danger.
- Percy Jackson: Who found me?
- Percy Jackson: I get the sense that you don't like me very much.
- Annabeth Chase: It's possible. I mean, our parents hate each other.
- Percy Jackson: Wait... they do?
- Annabeth Chase: Mm-hmm. I definitely have strong feelings for you. I just haven't decided if they're positive or negative yet.
- Percy Jackson: Well, you let me know when you figure it out.
- Annabeth Chase: You'll be the first.
- Percy Jackson: [Gabe slaps Sally's butt] Oh, come on, man. You have to do that right here? That's disgusting. We're in a kitchen.
