Quotes: Wretched Hive
This ain't no place for a hero
This ain't no place for a better man
This ain't no place for a hero
To call home

There's a hole in the world like a great black pit
And it's filled with people who are filled with shit
And the vermin of the world inhabit it"

"I've lived in Verel. That would be the place to look for degenerates, all right."

"Ghaal! That seething pit of vermin! That filth brimming sinkhole of despair! In such degradation there is purity. In such ugliness there is wonder. In such death and suffering, there is life, so holy to Drakaasi for it is life that must be ended!"

Tyrion Lannister, Game of Thrones

Black strap, Rum and gin
Sexual freedom all the way
A rolling dice, an ace of hearts
One shall win and one's to pay

Kohaku: What's up, boys?
Ram: Oh, um, not much....I guess...
Kohaku: ...You sound vaguely distressed. Something up?
Ram: This is a bad place.
Igno: (to Kohaku) Oh, not much, just looking around.
Igno: (to Ram) How so?
Kohaku: (to Igno) Find anything cool?
Kohaku: (to Ram) Really? Doesn't seem that bad. It reminds me a bit of home, but that's about it.
Ram: ...I was stranded here while on Pilgrimage. I was homeless here for a long time. You do not want to be homeless on Omega. ESPECIALLY if you are a quarian.
Kohaku: That bad, huh?
Igno: (to Kohaku) Uh, not yet, didn't get much time, was busy with stuff back home.
Igno: (to Ram) Oh.
Ram: There was a mad doctor that experimented on my people while I was here.
Igno: Uhhhhh...
Ram: (Nods) This is a bad place.
Kohaku: I'm sure we'll be fine. It's pretty much just a thug land, right?
Igno: Looks like it.
