No Centaurs, Amazons, or males were harmed during the production of this motion picture.
It's a man's world, Gabrielle. Not because it should be, but because we let them have it.
Xena: Something about me you find interesting?
Xena: Wanna tell me?
Xena: Then stop staring at me, before I take your eyes out.
Xena: (looking at execution sword) What's this?
Gabrielle: I'm an Amazon Princess?
Xena: (rolling eyes) Great.
Melosa: Gabrielle, do you want to fight me to the death?
Gabrielle: Not really.
Gabrielle: (in response to Xena's silent hint) We gotta come up with hand signals or something.
"I'm sorry you must have me mistaken for a pet."
"Would you come with me?"
-- Ephany and Gabrielle in "Hooves and Harlots"
"Centaurs aren't known for their stupidity."
"Amazons aren't known for asking questions."
"I'm not an Amazon."
"If it looks like a hydra and moves like a hydra, it's a hydra."
-- Xena and Phantes in "Hooves and Harlots"
First appearance of the Amazon Nation.
Gabrielle becomes an Amazon Princess.
Gabrielle gets her first weapon, a Staff.
This is the last appearance of Gabrielle's 'Farm Girl' outfit.
Alison Bruce (Melosa) and David Aston (Tyldus) went on to star together in Street Legal.
Alison Bruce (Melosa) also played Kahina in the episode Legacy and Talia in the episode Animal Attraction, both on Xena. She also played in one episode of Young Hercules.
This is the first appearance of Danielle Cormack as Ephiny. She was also in 3 episodes of Hercules (though only two as Ephiny). In addition, she played Shota in Legend of the Seeker.
Danielle Cormack (Ephiny) has said that performing in an Amazon mask was something of a nightmare, especially during fight scenes, since she could barely see through it.
In the original script, Terreis is described as a young girl about Gabrielle's age with a similar look.
Unlike the aired version, in the script it is made clear that Gabrielle didn't tell Xena about the right of cast information at Ephiny's request. After Xena leaves to meet Tyldus, Gabrielle questions Ephiny that she will have trouble keeping it a secret from Xena, especially when she doesn't know what the right of cast is.
A cut scene from the aired version had Gabrielle giving Xena's shoulders a massage before the battle with Melosa.
Xena does not use her chakram in this episode.
