Hercules (1997)
Hades: Zeusy, I'm home!
Zeus: Hades, you are behind THIS?
Hades: You are correct, sir!

Zeus: So, Hades, you finally made it. How are things in the underworld?
Hades: Well, they're just fine. You know, a little dark, a little gloomy. And, as always, hey, full of dead people. What are you gonna do?

Zeus: Aw, Hades, don't be such a stiff. Join the celebration.
Hades: Love to, Babe. But unlike you gods lounging about up here, I regretfully have a full-time job that you, by the way, so charitably bestowed on me, Zeus. So, can't. Love to, but can't.

Hermes: My lord and lady, the Titans have escaped, and they're practically at our gates!
Zeus: Sound the alarm! Launch an immediate counterattack! Go! Go!

[all laugh]
Zeus: Oh, I kill myself!
Hades: [to himself] If only. If only.

Zeus: Hey, hey, hey. Hold on, kiddo. What's your hurry? After all these years, is that the kind of "hello" you give your father?

Zeus: Release the Kraken!

Zeus: [about Perseus] Have I heard his prayers? This son holds no love for me!

[last lines]
Zeus: You may not want to be a god, Perseus, but after feats like yours, men will worship you. Be good to them. Be better than we were. And if you insist on continuing this mundane human existence, I won't have you do it alone. You're the son of Zeus, after all!

Zeus: Perseus! It's expensive where you're going...
[throws a coin at Perseus]

Jason and the Argonauts (1963)

Wrath of the Titans (2012)
[from trailer]
Zeus: You will learn someday that being half human, makes you stronger than a god.

Zeus: Why are you doing this?
Hades: You want me to say it, brother? You want me to say I'm afraid? Doesn't that go without saying? When mortals die, their souls go somewhere - there's no place where gods go when they die! There's nothing, just oblivion...

Zeus: Hades, I am so sorry for having done this to you. Can you ever forgive me?
Hades: Why do you ask this?
Zeus: Because I forgive you, for this.

Zeus: Thank you, my son.

Clash of the Titans (1981)
Zeus: Perseus has won. My son has triumphed.
Hera: A fortunate young man.
Zeus: Fortune is ally to the brave.
Thetis: What a dangerous precedent. What if there more heroes like him? What if courage and imagination became everyday mortal qualities? What will become of us?
Zeus: We would no longer be needed. But, for the moment, there is sufficient cowardice, sloth and mendacity down there on Earth to last forever.

Zeus: Perseus and Andromeda will be happy together. Have fine sons... rule wisely... And to perpetuate the story of his courage, I command that from henceforth, he will be set among the stars and constellations. He, Perseus, the lovely Andromeda, the noble Pegasus, and even the vain Cassiopeia. Let the stars be named after them forever. As long as man shall walk the Earth and search the night sky in wonder, they will remember the courage of Perseus forever. Even if we, the gods, are abandoned or forgotten, the stars will never fade. Never. They will burn till the end of the time.

Zeus: Find, and fulfill your destiny!

Zeus: Release the Krakken!

Ares, God of War: And Xena has earned mine. So I guess we both have something to lose.

Zeus: Was it too much to expect you to honor your commitments?
Ares, God of War: I don't know. Was it to much to expect you to control your wife?
Zeus: Explain yourself.
Ares, God of War: She's helping Hercules. Or didn't you know that? Well seems to me your renewed vows aren't worth the papyrus they're printed on.
