With Hercules away on a mission, Iolaus II admits to Aphrodite that he longs to experience love. Meanwhile, Discord turns Nautica the mermaid into a beautiful woman and soon she and Iolaus fall in love.
Summary[edit | edit source]
Hercules tries to teach Iolaus II to fight. Aphrodite tells Hercules about a mudslide. A mermaid, Nautica, argues with her father, Triton, about marrying a squid. Discord convinces Nautica to let her give her legs. Iolaus II fights off some tough thugs with Aphrodite's magical help.

Background Information[edit | edit source]
- Angela Dotchin played Kora on Young Hercules. Like Ryan Gosling and Jodie Rimmer in the previous episode, it seems that she was given a guest spot on the mother show as a farewell present after Young Hercules was cancelled.
- This is the first episode to show the rivalry between Aphrodite and Discord.
Memorable Quotations[edit | edit source]
"He was terrible, like a human tornado!"
"One man did this to you all? Hercules."
"No, no! The other one – the man he travels with."
"The court jester? Please. He couldn't hit water if he fell off a boat. There's something fishy going on around here."
- –Goon and Discord
"Cheer up, Curly. They think you're a hero."
"Yeah? Too bad I know I'm not."
