* If you're playing a Tau campaign in ''Dark Crusade'', one of Kais' lines is ''"Commander Puretide would be proud"''. Even having become a Shas'O himself, he clearly never forgot his training under Puretide.

--> '''Cyrus''': Your death is not merely a possibility, Thaddeus, it is a certainty. In this war or another, you will die. On that day, happiness will seem very far away. So save some of that victorious cheer. Store it away.

* One of the Eldar victory quotes is ''"The Craftworld shall rejoice at our victory."'' Unlike most of the self-centered victory quotes (''This victory will long be remembered in the Halls of Glory.'', ''We. Have. Triumphed.''), this one reminds you that your forces are fighting for more than themselves, they're fighting for their Craftworld and their fellow Eldar who live in it. Quite heartwarming to remember that even though they're capricious bastards, the Eldar still fight bravely to help their race.

* Cyrus gives some advice to Thaddeus that seems rather dark, until you remember [[CrapsackWorld what kind of universe this is]], and he's right: Space Marines don't die in bed. He's telling Thaddeus how to cope with the whole crapsack universe when it finally catches up to him.
--> '''Cyrus''': I will remember this day, when the end comes.
--> '''Thaddeus''': The end? You are a dark one, Cyrus.
--> '''Cyrus''': Your death is not merely a possibility, Thaddeus, it is a certainty. In this war or another, you will die. On that day, happiness will seem very far away. So save some of that victorious cheer. Store it away.
