"Dream casts a human shadow when it occurs to him to do so." Cordo
: I don't understand. Why was it necessary for him to make himself look human? Doctor
: Well, if you'd seen a Usurian you'd know what I mean. They look like sea kale with eyes. I mean, would you
take orders from a lump of seaweed?
"I don't like to brag, but if I appeared to you just as God - how I really am - what I really am - your mind couldn't grasp it." Alien:
Oh, all right. Look, I'm not really your father, OK? I'm an alien who was sent here at this appointed time to kill that guy because he would have destroyed all life as you know it. Rusty Venture:
I took the form of your dad because I figured it would be easier to accept. I didn't want to stress you out. End of the world, life on other planets, blah blah blah. Rusty Venture: Why.. you...
SON OF A BITCH! Do you know what you just put me through? What the fuck were you thinking? What kind of fucked up planet are you from where you think showing up as my dead fucking father is supposed to make me feel any better?! Alien:
Okay, take it easy. Rusty Venture:
You prick! Alien:
Look, I just saved your entire planet. Rusty Venture:
All right, fine. You wanna see? Here! [Alien reveals his true form]
There! That would've been better? If I'd shown up like that out of nowhere. Look at you! You practically crapped your pants. Except him, he crapped his pants! Ned:
"Actually, this is not Delta. We simply thought that you would be most comfortable speaking to Delta." Ellimist: [taking the form of a young human girl]
When the dinosaurs first walked, we... we had become much as I am today. Marco: You'd become a girl with braces?
"I am not as I appear to you. This small body is but a manifestation I use to put visitors at ease." "I suppose I am a bit too much for [Abis Maul]'s limited mind.
[assumes human form] I trust you'll find me a little less overwhelming now?"
I figured out as a toddler that my parents were happier if I kept a normal human shape
. And I'm nothing if not eager to please. By the time I started school, I'd perfected the all-American boy next-door look. But at home, alone with my folks, I'd relax and be me. I wasn't being a phony or ashamed of who I was
. It was simply less awkward that way.

"I Have Many Names. The Sovereign of Pestilence, The Warden of Decay, The Mistress of Flies, The... Wait, where are my manners? I have a guest, I should make myself more presentable. Here. I think you will find this form a little more comfortable to converse with." John
: What do you look like? Indrid Cold
: It depends on who's looking.
The Dark Overlord
: I have disguised my true form, which would be considered... hideous and revolting, here. Beverly Switzler
: Lucky for the people eating.
"The last time I appeared without warning in this form someone died of fright. Perhaps I should take a friendlier appearance."
