[ Randy enters the Copy Room ]
Richmeister: Ran-dyyy! The Rand-man! Randatollah!
Randy: Hi, Richard. Just making some copies.
Richmeister: Alright! The Rand Old Opry, makin' copies!
Randy: It's nice to see you, too, Richard.
Richmeister: The Randster! Randomly selected for your listening pleasure!
Randy: That's a new one. I like that one.
Richmeister: Ran-dyy! Likin' the new one! The Great Randino-o-o-o!
Randy: Now, that one I've heard before. [ exits ]
Richmeister: The Randipulator. Doesn't realize how hard it is coming up with new names. The Complain-meister! [ Steve enters ] The Steve-inator!

Kurt: You know, when you call me 'Lady,' that's bullying. And it's really hurtful.
Sue: I'm sorry. I thought that was your name. As an apology, I'll allow you to choose from the following nicknames: Gelfling, Porcelain, or Tickle Me Dough-Face.
Kurt: ... I guess I'll go with Porcelain.
Sue: Damn. I totally wanted Tickle Me Dough-Face.

"Oh, don't crack your crystals, Glassy. I'm here because the Goldilock Brigade," she gestured at the Golden Ones, "don't have their strategist handy. Where is old Morgpie, eh?"
Krokano, Terentia and Hajamin looked uneasily at each other. I wasn't that familiar with the inner workings of the Second Circle cadres, but apparently they each had their individual leaders, or generals. "Morgpie" was Kalikai's nickname for Morgfyre, and I suddenly recalled why Kalikai was not very popular in certain circles - she had a nickname for everyone.

Drake: "'Grumpy?'"
Faun: "You know the rules, everyone gets a nickname. I settled on your most defining characteristic."

Aveline: You don't call anyone by their real name except me. Where's my nickname?
Varric: That's not true. There's Hawke and Bianca.
Aveline: Hawke is a family name and Bianca is a crossbow. Don't change the subject.
Varric: Haven't thought of a good one yet. What do you think of "Red"?
Aveline: Too common.

"Soup Nazi? You people have a little pet name for everybody."
