Favorite Dialogue (By Category?)

Postby Arlia » Tue Jun 02, 2015 11:01 am

So, there's lots of dialogue in the games; that's one of their best features. Everyone is talking- NPCs, party members, villains. What were your favorite things someone said? What was the funniest, what impacted you the most, what did you never forget because it was so weird/etc.

Here are some of mine:

Funny:

Ramus: "You don't have to worry about me, Nanny, I'm a big boy, now."
Nall: "Yes, Nanny, Ramus is big. In fact, he's one of the largest kids I've ever laid eyes on."
---

Alex:"The White Dragon has..."
Blue Dragon:"No sense of humor. I know."
--
Not an actual quote, but Kyle's lisp when drunk. I.e, "Jethy."
--
Nash:"The thick candy shell, of course! Don't you peasants know ANYTHING?" In response to the candy NPC.

---

Lame:

Leo:"Sample my goods". Oh man...
--
Doesn't make any sense:

Kyle, ending:"Dumb kid... Why'd you take the risk?" Duh, Kyle. Why do you think?
--
Left an Impression:

Nall:"'Bye Mom! 'Bye Dad!" Always thought that was cute.
--
Gwyn:"Don't get lost in my books..." Proceeds to get lost in books.
--
Close to the end, Mia brings up not being too thrilled about killing Ghaleon, when the others are revved up for the final battle. No one else seemed to care.


There's so many more, but I'm tired now, and if I'm in the mood to post a new topic, that's kind of rare. If there's responses, I'm sure I'll be reminded of some.

Probably my most favorite that I can remember
Ronfar: The trick is to know when to walk away and to know when to run!

And of course
Quark: Don't you know those diamonds are made from my sh-

Nall saying "Alex, I can't see! I didn't know that old rumor was true!"

That's Kyle, not Nall.

Thanks. Speaking of Kyle, there was also his somewhat Beavis & Butthead moment when he laughed at "strong wood"

Random NPC: It's amazing to think that someone as lowly as you could possibly think they could clear this great game. I don't even know why I'm talking to you. You're not worthy enough to lick my boots.

In fact, I don't want you to even LOOK at my boots!

Just leave them alone! ALONE I SAY!

...

... Wow, I kinda lost it there huh. I better mention this to my psychiatrist.

(I'm paraphrasing, it's been a while since I played The Silver Star).

Yeah, that one was kind of unexpected. When I first played TSS I didn't mind the fourth-wall breaks and my favorite line was a book in Damon's library: "Video games will eventually rot the minds of all they enslave. At least... that's what they're saying now." That sort of thing isn't quite as funny to me as it was then, but the NPC Nobi mentioned still gets points for a totally unexpected rant.

I'll have to think about this one more to see what lines I like. At the moment it's easier to think of lines I dislike, but that's probably because spouse has been playing FFX lately and I'm therefore extra anti-voice at the moment.

Some of the lines when trying to sell event items in TSS are pretty good. I have a table of them somewhere. I don't think you get dialogue in other games for trying to sell things you're not supposed to...?

There's a lot of lines that were great, but for some reason that one just really stuck with me throughout the years. It's an amazing side dialogue. XD

Even though it falls under the "too obvious" category since it's so early on in the game, I remember getting a huge grin when I went up to the cow and Nall referenced the "Milk. It does the body good!" commercials.

Also I know it doesn't technically qualify as dialogue, but some of the descriptions for spells and items are pretty damn hilarious. Crematorium: Ashes to ashes. Butts to dust!

"That jerk Ghaleon crushed the sun-tea I had sitting out."
"Ruthless bastard."

Good old Nall.

While I'm not a big fan of voice acting, I love Ronfar's voice clip for running from battle in EBC: "You gotta know when to walk away and know when to RUN!" It just fits so well.

As a side note, it amused me that Gwyn has four voice clips for running from battle. Kind of an Easter egg since the brief time Gwyn is in the party is the least-likely point in the whole game that you're likely to run.

Sorry I haven't been too active on my own topic. Thank you all for your responses!

I was just trying to think of really good moments in the game when a something completely made you double-take, or bust out laughing, whether you liked it or not. Nobiyuki77 had a good one with that NPC.

Oh, you might get a kick out of this, if you haven't seen it, Alunissage (and anyone else who suffered FF X...)
