Quotable Quotes

These are quotes and classic one-liners from the episodes. Some of them are funny even knowing nothing about the game,
while others require a certain knowledge of the characters or scenario to truly appreciate.


Briael: You ever been around a Farris channel before?

Briael: [studying Snake]

Wise Snake:Yes, actually.

From BCT #3... before it was public knowledge that Snake is a Farris herself


Tramila: You're young, Wise. And you have a lot of potential.

Wise Snake: There's that "potential" word again. It goes right into my danger book alongside "therapy".

From BCT #3


Briael: No wonder she wasn't too upset about Veraik. Farrises...no morals. Their motto should be share and share alike.

Tarsh: A Sime Center runs on paper. Selyn is just a byproduct.

From BCT #178.


Wise Snake: I just wish I spent more time being a channel and playing God, and less time dealing with nitpicky stuff like windows falling out of buildings and people trying to sell me orange bathroom tiles.

From BCT #179. Don't we all!


Narcy sits back on the couch, as relaxed as an ironing board with the iron left on and face down for 2 hours.

Alea waits to hear what the tall, long haired channel has to say. She notes how very neat he is, how very in control, how very together and doesn't seem the least bit ready to break into a million pieces. This encourages her greatly after her last assignment.

From DCO #66


Nick: Did the in-Territory families know what they were sending their Gen children to?

Nick: Or did they just not care?

Riyyh: Garlen was not perfectly explicit in the retails of the religion, no.

From DCO #77.

Grenade: They call me the Grenade.

Storm: Don't tell me, you lost the pin somewhere, didn't you?

From SRD #92


Storm: Well, trust me on this, Nikki. I was in a lot of pain until your daddy fixed it. But even he can't fix broken ribs like this [snaps fingers] so I need some time to heal up.

From SRD #92. Oh dear. And now he must wait for his fingers to heal as well.


Nick: Although Riyyh wouldn't do anyone hard, at least not intentionally.

Oh yes he would! Typogiggly from SRD #102.
