Quotes / Changing of the Guard

Go To

Gentleman, he said,
I don't need your organization, I've shined your shoes,
I've moved your mountains and marked your cards
But Eden is burning, either brace yourself for elimination
Or else your hearts must have the courage for the changing of the guards.
Bob Dylan, "Changing of the Guards"

Avec la garde montante
Nous arrivons, nous voilà!
Et la garde descendante
Rentre chez elle et s'en va.
Carmen by Georges Bizet

"King's Quest was a series of computer games released in the '80s/early '90s that told the story of King Graham going on quests and fighting goblins and dragons and all that shit. They were puzzle games, which mostly meant that you walked around and picked up items like dead fish because later it would open a lock.

Anyway, Valanice was the queen of Daventry (yes, I remember this shit) who looked like the evil stepmother from
Cinderella. Mostly she just hung out in the background but in King's Quest VII she took CENTER STAGE! The game features Valanice nagging her dumb bitch daughter Rosella to get hitched and stop fucking singing, only to have Rosella fall down some hole and into another land, so Valanice goes after her BECAUSE SHE WANTS A WEDDING. They fall into another land, where Valanice searches for her daughter while yelling at little kids and turning a tree into a lady that looks like Bianca from Beverly Hills Teens."
