Session 7:

"Short little stupid little greedy little...." - common epithet aimed at dwarves (there are a number of variations on this theme)

"We're pretty passionate about everything that tries to kill us." - Rebecca, after the group declined to take up any passions regarding dwarves in particular

"What is this big wad of hamburger? And where's Jared?" - Dave* as Martin, on Jared's pitiful state

"Bite me, healer geek." - Harrick, after Martin blows his first aid roll for him

"As a healer, he makes a wonderful baker." - Harrick again, still on Martin's case

Session 6:

"The woods at least take the charges, the caves always call collect." - Terzin

Session 5:

"It's one of the genre rules; you always heal cleanly unless the scar will look dashing or dramatic." - Tom

I am going to tell you right now, that given the fact that it is more difficult to summon various elementals if one is too surrounded by their opposite number, the odds of you getting off a flare spell a hundred and fifty feet down in the earth in a water-filled pit is about NIL." - Brian lays down the law

Session 4:

"Hey, I can always gloat about the fact that I was right about adventuring being a good idea." - Terzin

"No." - Brian

"We know at least one person has keys." - Tom
"Him." - Josh, pointing at Dave.
"Right. Do we trust him? No. He might sneak in in the night, take his stuff, or something." - Tom

"There's nothing like studying Romantic poets to teach you how to suck the light from a room." - Tom

"You know the really frightening thing? He makes me want to turn into Scott. The two of us would be perking at each other down the road. 'What a wonderful day for adventure!'" - Tom on Dubricus (I had to include that because I didn't want to forget the mental image)

"Everyone gets another healing period..." - Brian
"Pristine as a baby's butt!" - Dave

Session 3:

"That's right, that last fight didn't go well...." David recalls the previous session.

"What I'd like to do is buy out a business, have the person who's running the business now continue to run it and merely send me money. Change the name of the place over it so that it would be 'Terzin's Bakery.' Ha, you lousy idiots! I would be here running this if you were worth my time." - Brian does a fair job of reading Terzin's thoughts.

"We did." - Harrick

"Ha! I don't care about your taunts." - Terzin, on Cloud 9
"Why don't you care about my taunts!? You're wrecking our relationship!" - Harrick

"Okay. Jared..." - Brian starts a brand-new scene
"Am I dead yet?" - Josh demonstrates that he knows Brian much too well already

Session 2:

"Doesn't pure of heart count?" - Josh
"You associate with Terzin, what are you talking about?" - Brian
"Well, Terzin's heart is surprisingly... well, if you want to equate 'pure' with unalloyed..." - Tom

"You rush to your doom..." - Brian
"We've been rushing to our doom, it's like Zeno's Arrow, we only get halfway there each time." - Dave

"You just like saying 'pith.'" - Rebecca to David

"That's just what we need. Cultists, in Crapaud." Harrick, morose

"Well, they're worse than these people." - Tom
"These people?" - Rebecca
"You know. You." - Tom, on Raelites and others

"Constant vigilance is the price of the Great Chain of Being." Rebecca

"Good friends, dead frogs, Miller Light." - Jared, relaxing

Chorus: "No." "No." "Fuck, no." "Not on your life."
