->''"I've probably spent more time with Mario than, literally, with members of my own family over the past 32 years...He's a cultural phenomenon, because he was at the center of a growing medium. He's kinda the poster boy of an entirely new medium that just developed a few decades ago. So, unless you were type of kid who grew up with a [[SegaGenesis Genesis]]--And, growing up in the 80's and 90's, I still have I still have lot a problems with people who owned Genesises. Genisis was [[SlobsVersusSnobs for the rich kids]]. Nintendo was for the workin' man."''

->''"You'll never convince me that Mario and Luigi don't come from [[BrooklynRage Brooklyn, New York]]. Yeah, I remember the ending of ''YoshisIsland'' and the backstory to ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime Partners in Time]]'', but [[{{Fanon}} it doesn't matter]]. I mean, how else can they clearly be Italian-Americans if they originated in a universe that does not appear to have an America ''or'' an Italy? To say nothing of radical differences in physics, gravity, and their effects on the relative bone and muscle structure of a being born in one dimension and/or planet but displaced to another like [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Kal-El]] or [[Literature/JohnCarterOfMars John Carter]] being the ''only'' things that could logically explain how two otherwise ordinary plumbers have the strength to leap dozens of feet in the air, run fast enough to achieve aerodynamic lift off, and break solid stone with their fists. Hell, it would also explain why their bodies [[EpilepticTrees undergo strange changes when exposed to seemingly common Mushroom Kingdom fauna that don't generally have the same effect on the native population and]]-- ...what was I talking about?"''

->"It may just be because I too suffer from a terrible genetic disability called an older brother, but I've always preferred Luigi to Mario. He's usually made out as a coward, but hey, [[HenryV Falstaff]] was a coward! Show me a Shakespearean character whose sole defining features are blindly following the instructions of some prissy royal bitch and a tendency to jump on things... okay, {{Macbeth}}, perhaps."
