Wow jay, just ouch.

And that quote from 6 is pretty much always guaranteed to get people thinking you're quoting Yoda.  Funny that.

I didn't mean it offensively, just that if my boyfriend were to say that to me, I'd feel like he was insulting me and.. three other women?

When my ex was being stupid I used to say "Four morons do I sleep with nightly!"

Did she ever ask about the other three?
Yes, I'm sure HE did. ;)

He did once, early in our relationship. To which I promptly responded, "You've NEVER played King's Quest?? This is never going to work out!"
Funny about how I was right. :P

Narrating in real life, just thinking about it gives me the creeps, just like when I watched the movie Stranger then Fiction

Wouldn't it be weird if you got a death message when you died?

*get killed by a swirling ball of energy*

I'm like, an adult now or something? Sounds fake, but okay.

The only thing about that would be you wouldn't get a restart button. If you could pick any death pun from trhe games, what would you choose?

I actually muttered a Graham quote this morning at work!  It was dead in the store (I work at the local Big Lots store) and we'd just opened and I was quite bored.  See I was running the service desk and there weren't any customers yet.  And without thinking, from my mouth spat "I wish I had an owl to keep me company"

Yesterday, I was at my school's library helping put in new bookcases. Well, we had a few more people than we needed there, so I had some time to just wander about the place. On one of the bookshelves, I found a globe displaying the constellations.

"What's this? A celestial globe?"

It was probably one of my best King's Quest quotes ever. You know, as it was actually relevant to the situation.

My cousin and I went through a stage of quoting "how amusing.. how irritating" to each other all the time when we were kids!  It was catching - even our parents started doing it!

...and another good one from VII to annoy your friends:

beyond the woods and far below"

That's awesome! I never think to use that one.  Perhaps I'll start!

I've been playing the King's Quest games with my father when I was a child. Now The Silver Lining made me play through the games again, enjoying the nostalgia. I came across the idea of collecting the best and most remarkable quotes from the series (see signature). So if you happen to stumple upon one of these, I'd be very thankful if you could post it here  :)

"Advice is free, Alexander, making use of it costs much more!" (Ali)

"Home is a hard place to leave, even if you are unhappy there." (Alexander)

"Don't just wander Alexander, let your conscience be your guide." (Narrator)
"Love can't be banished, even from this place... still less can it be banished from my heart."
 - Alexander (King's Quest VI - Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow)
