Quotes: Strangled by the Red String

Crow: [as the Queen] I'm going to be your love interest whether you like it or not.
Mystery Science Theater 3000, "Colossus and the Headhunters"

It's just a bit more sophisticated than the usual approach to romance in games, which is to say 'Here is your woman, you love her because A) We say you do, B) She's the only thing in this plot with an X chromosome, and C) She's built like two shrink-wrapped bowling balls arguing over a sandwich.'

Hey, remember back when Fandango was THE hot act in the company for, oh, three weeks? When fans sang his theme song…one that has NO WORDS?

That, my friends, is HORRIBLE relationship development. Don't believe me? Try this. Imagine that you're on a first date.
