* It stands as a testament to humanity's [[HumanityIsSuperior superior nature]] that even in the face of a galactic Armageddon, some people can still make witty comebacks:
--> '''Joshua Calvert, after being arrested a second time by the same person:''' "Can't get enough of me, can you? So what is it this time? A million-fuseodollar fine for littering? Ten years hard labour for not returning my empties to the bar? Penal colony exile for farting in public?"
* [[spoiler: Al Capone]] delivers this one in 1920's style:
--> "Goodbye to that goddamn pain in the ass Confederation!"
* How about:
--> ""Lagrange Calvert meeting a [[spoiler: real live god]]! What a spectacle! We should be able to see that clash of egos from this side of the [Orion] nebula.""
* This exchange:
--> "I've always been a massive admirer of the Edenist ability to understate. But I think defining a [[spoiler: chunk of land fifteen kilometres across that suddenly takes flight and wanders off into another dimension]] as a ''little problem'' is possibly the best example yet."
--> "I never said ''little''."
* Hamilton has a way with these things; FYI a "serjeant" is a humanoid bitek soldier clad in crab-like armor:
--> "The captain wanted to protest, but somehow the sight of a serjeant wearing slim purple sunglasses and a paisley-patterned backpack stopped the words from coming out."
