    • "Let me guess - someone stole your sweetroll..."
    • "No lollygaggin'."
    • "Some may call this junk. Me, I call them treasure."
    • "Trinkets, odds and ends, that sort of thing."
    • "Looking to protect yourself, or deal some damage?"
    • "That spell looks dangerous... keep your distance."
    • "Do you get to the Cloud District very often? Oh, what am I saying... of course you don't."
    • "Never should have come here..."
    • "So you wish to master the arcane arts..."
    • "Skyrim for the Nords!"
    • "You know,if you've got the aptitude, you should join the College of Winterhold..."
    • "You know what's wrong with Skyrim these days? Everyone is obsessed with death!"
