Delightful Dialogue: Clash of the Titans

[Discussing Zeus's womanizing antics]

Thetis: So many women, and all these transformations and disguises he invents in order to seduce them. Sometimes a shower of gold, sometimes a bull or a swan. Why, once he even tried to ravish me disguised as a cuttlefish.

Hera: Did he succeed?

Thetis: Certainly not.

Athena: What did you do?

Thetis: Beat him at his own game. I simply turned myself into a shark.

~ Maggie Smith, Claire Bloom, and Susan Fleetwood in Clash of the Titans (1981)
