Sir Orin Neville Smythe: Blade with whom I have lived, blade with whom I now die, serve right and justice one last time, seek one last heart of evil, still one last life of pain, cut well old friend, and then farewell Ommadon: Come devils, witches, demons, ogres, trolls, sun wraiths, harpies, ghouls, sorcerers! Peter Dickenson: Come algebra, anatomy, astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, geometry, mathematics, meteorology, mineralology, oceanography, paleontology, physics, psychology, sociology, trigonometry, and zoology! Ommadon: While your powers die, mine will flourish! Man will never inherit my domain, for I am making man mine! Gorbash: Whither dost thou command me, oh, master? Carolinus: Gorbash, please, no formalities. Gorbash: Well, I, uh, like to do things by the book. Carolinus: To the Temple of All Antiquity! Gorbash: Right! [turns around, confused] Gorbash: Where? Carolinus: I'll guide you as we go. Away! Peter Dickenson: [holding up a pocket watch] This is an heirloom. It must be worth something. Pawnbroker: Your heir didn't loom too big. If I gave you 50, I'd be fired. Breog: [about to drop Peter] May the rocks crush your skull! Carolinus: Good would be totally impotent, without the contrast of evil. Smrgol: What? Never had gemstones in your craw? Peter Dickenson: [in dragon form] I never had a craw.
