Chaos: “Hmm, what does ‘ineffable’ mean?”
Bobb (and Mark): “Not to be eff’d with.”
—laughter—
Chaos: “Done! I am now ‘the Cunning, Ineffable Laughing Coyote’. And I’m adding that to my background so everyone can see it.”

From today's WFRP

"So this one's nickname is Horse? Let's not steal his pants."

Later

"I will steer the boat while singing at he top of my lungs!"

"I will care for my little brother by carefully draping him over the boat rail with his head hanging over the water."

and later still

"Hmm, 60 xp? How many levels of the Consume Alcohol Skill will that get me?"

A non-spoiler, from the Picard finale:

WORF: There was a moment today when I was worried we might actually survive.

And:

(Riker pulls a small phaser from the hilt of Worf's dropped sword)

RIKER: You had this in here the whole time? A phaser, and you didn't use it?
WORF: Swords are fun.

"You are a homicidal wizard invading a public school. No one will care if I kill you." (The speaker is an "Elf," the offspring of a human and an Immortal - basically a Fae entity - which results in him being rather restricted by the other Immortals in terms of what he can do. He could never serve in the military, despite rather wanting to, but is allowed to act relatively freely in a situation where magic is already involved or if acting in the defense of himself or others. He's a teacher at the school in question, and in fact the person the wizard has come to murder is one of his students.)

"Fancy magic, fire and noise - all outdone by humanity's toys." (I swear, Adrian Raven is actually a relatively minor character in EGS, it's just that what I think of as the two most memorable quotes in the story happen to occur around the time he's swordfighting murderous, magical entities while protecting innocents.)

PC1: "This is a research project, we need your explosives for classified reasons"
PC2: "hopefully we will bring our own explosives"
GM: "Those aren't yours, those are Lt. Solomon's. He will happily blow up anything you ask him to"
