Wonder Woman (2009) (V)
Hippolyta: Here the true nature of men is laid bare. What other depraved thoughts must you be thinking?
Col. Steve Trevor: God, your daughter's got a nice rack.

[first lines]
Ares: You seem as eager to meet me on the battlefield as you once did in the bedroom, Hippolyta.
Hippolyta: I only hope you prove more skilled in this arena, Ares.

Artemis: I must confess, my queen. It feels like the first day of school.
Hippolyta: And you could not find a bigger sword, Artemis?
Artemis: Sword? This is but my dagger.

Artemis: [Wonder Woman has just flown off for "Man's World"] We should not have let her go.
Hippolyta: I don't see how we could have stopped her.
Artemis: I could have shot her in the leg... Not near an artery, of course.
Hippolyta: You are the soul of thoughtfulness, Artemis.

Col. Steve Trevor: [being interrogated with the Lasso of Truth] I don't have to put up with this crap!
Hippolyta: We are unfamiliar with this particular idiom. What does 'crap' mean?
Col. Steve Trevor: [considers] No, forget I even said it.
[tightens the Lasso]
Col. Steve Trevor: [struggles] It's another word for excrement. You happy now, lady?
[looks shocked]

Hippolyta: You were given a life of peace and beauty!
Persephone: And denied one of families and children. Yes Hippolyta, the Amazons are warriors... but we are women too.


"Wonder Woman: The New Original Wonder Woman (#1.1)" (1975)
Queen Hippolyte: I named this island "Paradise" for an excellent reason. There are no men on it. Thus, it is free of their wars, their greed, their hostility, their... barbaric... masculine... behavior.
[she bites her hand]

Queen Hippolyte: And this is your Golden Lasso. Besides being made from an indestructible material, it also carries with it the power to compel people to tell the truth. Use it well, and with compassion.

Queen Hippolyte: Go in peace my daughter. And remember that, in a world of ordinary mortals, you are a Wonder Woman.

Diana: You wanted to see me, Mother?
Queen Hippolyte: You may leave his care to others.
Diana: Well thank you, but I would prefer to stay on until I'm certain that he's well.
Queen Hippolyte: That was a command, not a request.
Diana: Am I allowed to ask why?
Queen Hippolyte: You are very intelligent.
Diana: I am your daughter.
Queen Hippolyte: There are so many things you don't know. Do you have any idea of your age?
Diana: By what standard?
Queen Hippolyte: By the earth's clock.
Diana: No.
Queen Hippolyte: You are immortal, as are all of us on Paradise Island. If you should ever leave here, you could revert to a human being.
Diana: Why are you telling me this now, Mother?
Queen Hippolyte: Because I sense what might happen between you and that man. We are stronger, wiser and more advanced than all those people in their jungles out there. Our civilization is perfection!
Diana: No! There's something missing, Mother. When I look at Steve Trevor, I feel things. Things I've never known before.
Queen Hippolyte: There are some things that are better not known. Young Amazon minds are best occupied with athletic discipline and higher learning.
Queen Hippolyte: We now know why he was in the area. That man must be returned to his own country.
Diana: But why, Mother?
Queen Hippolyte: For his safety - and ours. One of our young Amazon girls will escort him to his country, and then return to Paradise Island.
Diana: But all the girls will want that task.
Queen Hippolyte: I know. To forestall any ill feelings, I have planned a tournament of athletic games, by which I alone shall determine the strongest, nimblest, and most likely aspirant for the assignment.
Diana: A tournament! That's a wonderful idea, Mother. I look forward to participating in the games myself.
Queen Hippolyte: You? Never!
Diana: But, Mother! I don't understand...
Queen Hippolyte: [interrupting] I cannot risk my only begotten child, our princess, on a mission in behalf of the life of a... a savage!

Queen Hippolyte: The skirt can be discarded if it should prove cumbersome.
[Diana discards it almost immediately]

Queen Hippolyte: [to Diana] You're too young to remember how we women were slaves in Rome, and Greece... I promised myself it would never happen again.


"Justice League: Paradise Lost: Part II (#1.9)" (2002)
[after sending Hades back to the Underworld]
Princess Diana: What did you ever see in him?
Queen Hippolyta: Ancient history.

Queen Hippolyta: Diana, princess of Themyscira, stand forth! As your mother, I am overjoyed that you have at last returned to us. But as your queen, I am obliged to uphold the laws of Themyscira, and in bringing these outsiders to our island, you have broken our most sacred law. This cannot be overlooked.
Princess Diana: But Mother...
Queen Hippolyta: [holds up hand for silence] Diana, I have no choice. It is with a heavy heart that I must exile you from Themyscira.

Queen Hippolyta: May Hera watch over you, my little sun and stars.


"Wonder Woman: The Feminum Mystique: Part 2 (#1.6)" (1976)
Queen Hippolyta: Ah, these Nazi's don't stand a chance against my Amazons.
Wonder Woman: Don't be too sure, mother. They're clever and they're devious, like most men.
Queen Hippolyta: Like your American friend Major Trevor?
Wonder Woman: He's clever, but he doesn't have a devious bone in his body.
Queen Hippolyta: You should know daughter...
[turns and leaves]
Wonder Woman: Mother!

Queen Hippolyta: Truly I am blessed to have two such lovely daughters. But now I've had enough of this outdoor life. I want to get back to the palace into some civilized comforts.

Wonder Girl: Thanks to me the Nazi's know about Paradise Island. They're sure to send others.
Queen Hippolyta: No, no, daughter. They are not certain that the information you gave them is correct. Captain Radl told me. As a matter of fact, they may even think that you lied.
Wonder Girl: [laughs] Lie, me?
Queen Hippolyta: I know, I know it's impossible for you to lie. But men don't know that, they lie all the time.


"Wonder Woman: The Feminum Mystique: Part 1 (#1.5)" (1976)
Queen Hippolyta: Then why did you put the grass snake down Magda's back? You know poor Magda's deathly afraid of snakes!
Drucilla: But mother, you should have seen her. She went four different shades of green.
Queen Hippolyta: We are not amused.
Drucilla: [laughs] Well, you would have been had you been there.

Queen Hippolyta: Though I strongly disapprove, that's not the reason I sent for you.
Drucilla: Dalma told you about me nailing Magda's sandals to the floor?
Queen Hippolyta: No, she did not! We will talk about that later, too!


Wonder Woman (2017)
Queen Hippolyta: You have been my greatest love. Be careful, Diana. They do not deserve you.

Queen Hippolyta: What is your mission?
Steve Trevor: To stop the war!
Diana Prince: What war?
Steve Trevor: The war to end all wars! Weapons far deadlier than you can imagine! Whoever you are, you are in more danger than you realize!


"Justice League: The Balance (#4.5)" (2005)
Queen Hippolyta: Bring my daughter back to me.
Shayera Hol: Nothing to worry about. She's almost as good at kicking butt as I am.


"Justice League: Secret Origins (#1.1)" (2001)
Wonder Woman: Mankind may be facing its final hour, Mother.
Queen Hippolyta: Then mankind will have to face it alone.
Wonder Woman: How can you say that?
Queen Hippolyta: What happens beyond our shores is none of our concern. Here, the gods protect us.
