Sound File # 1

It don't make a bit of sense to me. If that's what being crazy is then I'm senseless, out of it, gone down the road, wacko. But no more, no less.

Sound File # 2

No 1: Do you want to run my bath for me? No 2: It's what I live for.

Sound File # 3

Does anyone here speak English... or even ancient Greek? Water.. oh no thank you... fish make love in it.

Sound File # 4

Sound File # 5

I do wish we could chat longer, but I'm having an old friend for dinner. Bye.

No 1: Your use of language has altered since our arrival. It is currently laced with, shall we say, more colourful metaphors, "double dumb-ass on you" and so forth.
No 2: You mean the profanity?
No 1: Yes.

Sound File # 7

"Are you going to pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?"

Sound File # 8

They send you here for life... and that's exactly what they take.

Sound File # 9

No 1: How do you do, good lady. I am Arthur, King of the Britons. No 2: King of the who? No 1: The Britons. No 2: Who are the Britons?

Sound File # 10

I can outlearn you. I can outrage you. I can outthink you. And I can outphilosphize you. And I'm going to outlast you.
