Late last night I returned home from my duties as royal envoy, to find my kin in a greater uproar than the southern city I had left behind. Ten months of Westgate's problems shrivel to insignificance when compared to the tragedy that has befallen the clan of the Wyvernspurs of Immersea.
How could the flattening of an entire neighborhood by a dragon corpse, followed by an earthquake and an underworld power-struggle, hope to compete with the theft of a family heirloom no larger than a zucchini and uglier than three-week-old sausage?

Lana: Ray is dying!
Archer: Does that mean so must my dream? (his dream involving a pirate lacrosse team)
Stu: You are such a fucking moron! (after finding out that Alan accidentally roofied them)
Alan: Your language is offensive!
Lister: You've got to get your priorities right! You know, it's like those people you read about who run back into a burning house to rescue some treasured piece of furniture and wind up burning to death. I mean, nothing's more important than a human life!
Rimmer: What about your guitar?
Lister: ...except my guitar.

I hate to remind everyone but, um, I've just destroyed a merger that probably took hundreds of years to set up, the office is on fire, Denholm is furious— so can we please please concentrate on what's important AND HELP ME PUT ON MY SHOES!

Rarity: I was this close to getting that diamond!
Twilight: (annoyed) You mean...getting rid of that dragon?
Rarity: Oh, yeah...sure.
When I was four there was a hurricane in Kingston Town
With a foot-and-a-half of water
Everyone was all right, but I cried all night;
It blew my alphabet blocks out of order
