"Alexander pulls out his magic map..."

I think it's about time the King's Quest board had a memorable/favorite quotes thread.

  • Yes! And it dragged out even longer if it was a really long drop :)

  • @thesporkman said: I loved how when you fell only a short distance it would abruptly cut the scream off with a splat sound.

    I liked how just falling an extremely small distance would kill you.
    Like on Mordack's island.
    Hemophilia I guess from all that inbred noble blood?

    -Alexander drowns-
    Narrator: "Nothing like getting swept off your feet!"

    This game MUST have humorous death messages.

  • Is it wrong that I would have done almost anything for once, just once, instead of the narrator saying "Alexander pulls out his magic map," Alex himself said "Excuse me while I whip this out"?

    Seriously, if there's a magic map system in the Telltale game, tribute MUST be paid to Blazing Saddles.

  • "Alexander has no need to carry around large rocks."

    "And I assure you, that you won't be gettin' past me, withooout proof!"

    @KatieHal said: "AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!"

    (from King's Quest 5)

    Hahaha, yea I used to talk to my friend about how this was the only example of good acting in the game.

    We used to joke about there being an outtakes movie. You would see the Cedric voice actor saying "WHOOOOOOOOOO, Graham, watch out...." and the director comes in yelling "CUT, CUT, CUT!" The voice actor, now with his real, deep, scratchy voice, snaps "what the F--K was wrong with that!?"

  • A few from the top of my head here -

    "DYING for a drink, Graham?" (har har! :p :D)

    "Life giving water. Nectar of the gods. Graham can now feel strenght and rejuvenation flowing through him" (paraphrased, been a while since I played the game... but for some reason this line seems to stay in my head forever, maybe because it's so cheesy).

  • A poiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisonous snake. A poiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisonous snake. A poiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisonous snake. A poiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisonous snake. A poiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisonous snake. A poiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisonous snake.

  • "That old witch caught Graham toadally off guard."

  • @thesporkman said: "That old witch caught Graham toadally off guard."

    Haha, great one thesporkman! Haha it's so cheesy but awesome at the same time.

    That reminds me, I really loved the witch's cackling to herself. Anyone remember what I'm talking about?

  • What I want to share is not exactly a quote ...
    I'm new comer to the series and I'm playing the original version of KQ1 for now, and what's stuck in my mind for the small time I played the game is not a quote, but a sound effect, the one that you hear after dying:
    "Dun, dun, da dun, dan duh dun dah dun dah da.. Di di din du did dun! Din!"

    I just *love* how serious it begins and then transforms into a loony tunes like goofy music!
