Quotes: What the Hell Is That Accent?
Detective Garfield: You talk funny Nash. Where you from?
"Russel Nash": Lots of different places.
— During the police interrogation of antique dealer Russel Nash (actually the immortal Connor MacLeod), Highlander

"He's one of the World's Saviours, and appears to be Bartholio's closest ally, but not much else is known about him. He speaks in a bizarre accent; I have honestly no idea what it's supposed to be and I bet you don't either."
Vennie Vidi Ae-Vicci's character blurb, MARDEK

"I gave my actors a lot fo creative freedom; I put the idea in their head: Think of eight accents, and try to do all of them at the same time. I—I actually don't know what they're saying half the time, but it's very authentic."

Watson (in his strange accent): Detective, I can't believe that you would barge into my home like this.
Obscurus Lupa (as Watson): "Detective, I can't believe how many accents I'm trying to pull off".

"Southern accents and'' Cajun accents is a test of endurance for even the die-hard Claremont fan. Seriously, I grew up in South Carolina and took four years of French in high school, and I only know what these two jabronis are saying thirty, maybe forty percent of the time."
Chris Sims, on Rogue and Gambit

"Pacino has done many embarrassing things in his career and I have seen most of them. I also donít engage in hyperbole (or at least I try to) so when I say what follows believe that I truly mean it. This is the most embarrassing thing Al Pacino has ever done. Ever! Yes, I am well aware of Gigli. EVER! Why is it so terrible? This is why I wish I could add some video clips because it is something you have to kind of experience to believe. However I will try to explain it as best I can. He has an accent in this movie. The best way I can describe it is a little Scarface with a bit of the Bronx with a touch of stereotypical white actor playing an Indian. You know, ďMe John...Big Tree!Ē Try your gruntiest Pacino voice as he repeats ďHaw Ned...donít choo drown on me Ned...haw Ned. IíM HOLDING CHOO NED!...Aw, aw Ned...Iím rockiní ya like you was mah baby Ned...like you was mah liddle baby Ned. Feel me holdiní you Ned? DONíT YOU LEGGO OF ME NED! Haw Ned...haaaaaw Ned...Ē and so on."
Miles Antwiler on Revolution (1985)

"I have no idea what ethnicity you are anymore."
— Let's Play: Quest for Glory 1 (So You Want To Be A Hero) PART 4
