->'''Quentyn:''' ''[[HonestJohnsDealership Max]]!'' I got a bone to pick with you! I got a whole ''skeleton'' of bones to pick!

->'''Rillcreek:''' That's artifactors for you. They'll spend an hour telling you how a bridge was built...when all you wanted to know was how to cross the river.\\
'''Irons:''' Ahahaha. As opposed to wizards, who'll tell you "Cross on the bridge", but won't tell you where it is.

->'''Kestrel:''' ''[thinking]'' [[WrenchWench I'm an artifactor. I fix things, that's what I do.]] But even I knew this wasn't a "fix it" thing. You can't heal loss with words and lectures. Sometimes all you can do is let someone hurt...[[YouAreNotAlone and hurt along with them.]]

->'''Lawyer:''' I'm a solicitor, sir. I'm not paid to speculate beyond the limits of the job at hand.\\
'''Gilder:''' That's the funny thing I've discovered about paying people to think. If they're worth spit, they tend to ''keep'' thinking, even when they're not on the clock.

->'''Lawyer:''' Your Questor made a move that [[GovernmentConspiracy they]] completely [[DidntSeeThatComing failed to prepare for]]. Unsurprising. I've found schemers and plotters are [[EvilCannotComprehendGood rarely able to cope with simple things like honor and courage.]]

->'''Quentyn:''' What was [[DopeSlap that]] for?! I didn't do anything!\\
'''Kestrel:''' Exactly. And I wish you'd [[GuiltComplex remember that once in a while]].

->'''Sam:''' What?! [[TheDungAges So I stink, huh?]] Like I'm supposed to take this from someone who smells like...''*sniffs Quentyn*''...[[ShuttingUpNow spring lilacs??]]

->'''Sam:''' Do all ten-year-old Racconans build [lightning engines]?\\
'''Quentyn:''' They do when they need extra credit in school.

->'''Duke of Fenwyck:''' Ah, good. I'd hate to think this rising feeling of panic wasn't thoroughly justified...

->'''Quentyn:''' Argh. Politics. I ''hate'' politics.\\
'''Duke:''' Hah. You think ''you'' hate the games of dukes and lords? Try having them as a birthright.

->'''Quentyn:''' You think I'm just going to jump in willy-nilly, without a plan?\\
'''Sam:''' Aw, naaah. [[SarcasmMode Where would I get THAT impression?]]...she said to the fuzzball who [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu threw a pie in a Fae Lord's face.]]

->'''Duke of Fenwyck:''' I've looked over your "itemized bill", and the restitution you ask for slaying the dragon is...quite reasonable, all things considered. Though you accredit many things you have already received from us--"food and lodging", "transport", the ''deed to Killdevil Hill''--as "payment in advance"?\\
'''Quentyn:''' To pad the receipt, yeah. I figured the other lords would be placated a little if it looked like you were paying through the nose.

->'''Max:''' And to think my sister thought you and I had nothing in common. You and me, running a scam on the guilds...\\
'''Arlen:''' It's all legal, Uncle...\\
'''Max:''' Dear boy, ain't no one told you those are the best kind?

->'''Max:''' ''[seeing field of aluminum berries]'' Oh, heh...it's that dream again. Been a while since I dreamed about [[GrowsOnTrees money growing on trees]]...''[does double-take]''

->'''Pelinor:''' Are you actually crazy enough to think that if I tried to charge to the rescue it would make any difference?! That I would even ''survive?!''\\
'''Ghost Armor:''' Are ''you'' crazy enough to think that you'll be able to live with yourself if you don't?

->''"There'll be people who want to turn your position into something empty and ceremonial. There'll be people who want to put you under some fool advisory board, "For Your Own Good." There'll even be some fools who'll try to brush you aside, say [[BornInTheWrongCentury you're not needed anymore, the world is too "Civilized."]] ''Don't you dare let them.'' So long as this old world turns, I guarantee heroes like you will be needed.

->''"You want to know who I am? [[BadassBoast I'll tell you who I am]]--I'm Quentyn son of Quinn, the Questor of Freeman Downs. The gnomes [[IHaveManyNames call me]] "Hunter of Shadows." The Gragum call me "Little God-Slayer." The gangs of [[WretchedHive the Tumbledowns]] call me Sir, if they know what's good for them. I am one of Oberon's Untouched--kissed by the White Stag and blessed by two ladies of the [[TheFairFolk seleighe court]]. I have slain a gragum [[AGodAmI priest-king]] and three of his followers singlehanded. I have waded through an army of [[LivingShadow shadow-wights]] to lay low a [[HiveMind rat-king]]. I have pulled a house down around the ears of not one, but two gangs of thieves. I have slain a swamp kraken and run before [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame the Wild Hunt]]--and won. And before I leave this duchy I will add a [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu dead dragon]] to that list. I am a Rac Cona Daimh, and I am nothing to be trifled with. Do you have any other questions, your grace?"''
