<font color=red face="comic sans ms">On the return to Alexandria on disc 2 with Steiner, Marcus and Garnet:

Steiner: You bastards!
Zorn: Bastards we may be, but clever are we!
Thorn: Hee hee hee!

One of the funnier Zorn and Thorn lines; I've always loved that part. :D


Zidane: You're all a bunch of babysitting bastards!
Zidane: ... but I know, that I am the worst bastard here.

"Ooo soft!" Zidane, while 'accidently' encountering Garnet's backside while climbing into the Cargo Ship.

"Wimps like you are the reason no one relies on men in Alexandria! Bite the bullet you worthless grub!" Steiner, telling off Mullenkeidhiem in the Banquet Hall for complaining about his hunger.

"Hey, I'm not the idiot with the loud, booming voice and the dirty, rusty armour!" Zidane, responding to Steiner's griping about Zidane's standard of grooming.

"I once single-handledly killed over a hundred knights. To me, you two are nothing more than insects." Beatrix, taunting Freya and a Burmecian soldier.

"What the hell?!! The only scoundrels here are you and your fat queen!!" Zidane, responding to Beatrix's taunts.

And who can forget Kuja's classic lines, like:

"And now Brahne, your role in this tragic drama will come to an abrupt end! Act 2: The End of the Ugly Desire! I hope you'll enjoy the view from your soul's hellish prison, because the setting will be your former home!! The third act will take us away from Gaia, where I will kill my nemesis, with my own hands!! Ahh, everything is proceeding as I have forseen."

"Peace, is but a shadow of death, desperate to forget it's painful past. Though we hope for promising years, after shedding a thousand tears, yesterday's sorrow constantly nears. And while the moon still shines blue, by dawn it will turn to scarlet hue. What an auspicious day for Alexandria. Garnet's ascension to the throne has brought hope and peace to this kingdom. The people are overjoyed; they believe a promising future is ahead of them. But the celebration isn't over yet. It's time to really light things up! Your former master is hear Bahamut! Play a requiem for her and all of Alexandria!!"

And finally:

"When the Invincible sucked in the souls of the Iifa Tree, it drew in a powerful soul. Do you know who it was?"

(Garnet, shaking with horror) : "No!"

"That's right! It was your mother's soul! A twisted soul, who clung to life to the bitter end! The imprisoned souls of the Invincible welcomed me with open arms! They were sick of being your prisoners Garland!"

Quotes? Muah-haahaa! I'll give you quotes!! :D :D

Enki already gave one of my favorite quotes of Zidane's ("Ooo... soft!").

So lets see... we'll go for the philosophical first:

"It all boils down to two choices. Either you do, or you don't. You'd think with all the problems in this world, there'd be more answers. It's not fair... but that's the way it is. The choice is yours."
~ Zidane (this is one of my favorites :) )

"I don't think I really understand what it means to live and to die. Where do we come from...? Do we go back there when we die...? If that's what it means to live... I wonder where I came from...? Where will I end up when I die...? Why am I shaking...? What is it that I'm feeling...?"
~ Vivi

"Sometimes you can't think everything out. You have to listen to your heart."
~ Zidane, to Dagger, a[Only registered and activated users can see links] idn't it sweeet? I gotta admit, I love that sentiment. :)

"... we believed in you the same way you believed in us! Just like you protected us... We want to protect you."
~ Dagger, to Zidane in Pandemonium

"Heroic? Human? Those are just things people say after the fact. Why try to give meaning to what the main character of the story chose?"
~ Zidane again, a quote I find quite ironic coming from him... hehehe.


Now let's go for the not-so-serious

Zidane: "Well, see you when I see you."
Blank: "How about never?"
~The two Tantalus brothers separating in Evil Forest

"Wow! Even the oglops are big in Lindblum!"
~ Vivi, encountering something that can't be killed with bug spray

"Maybe I'm trying too hard..."
~ Zidane, after Dagger tells him he's got a one-track mind.

Regent Cid: "The excavation site is like a maze. Be careful not to get lost. And... Take this with you!"
Zidane: "It's a rag."
Regent Cid: "You big dope! It's not just a rag! That is a national treasure of Lindblum! That is an ancient map of the entire world!"
Zidane: "Wow. Thanks!"
~ at the Gate to Lindblum. That makes me laugh every time....

Zidane: That voice...! It's Kuja!
Kuja: So happy to see you again.
Zidane: You rat bastard! Where are my friends?
Kuja: My, my. Aren't we feisty today?
~ hehehe, I love it. Kuja picking on his baby brother...


And two or my favorites, which I saved for the last (BIG SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T FINISHED!):

"You taught us that life doesn't last forever. That's why we have to help each other and live life to the fullest."
~ epilogue

Dagger: How did you survive?
Zidane: I didn't have a choice. I had to come home to you. So... I sang your song.
Dagger: Our song.


Yeah, you know you've played too much FF9 when you can run through quotes like this from heart. Scary, isn't it? Haha. Enjoy!

"Let fear propel you forward. Do not let failure stifle you."

-- Iron-Tail Fratley

"We seek the meaning of life because we are mortal."

-- Key Item Description

"Good food not only delicious! Good food made with heart! This very important when cooking for friends!"

-- Quina

"The sly eagle doesn't kill at whim."

-- Zidane

"Chivalry requires a knight to look after his comrades-in-arms. I will not abandon you! And I shall follow you to kingdom come if I must. You remember that!"

-- Steiner

Also, all the quotes at the start of the game are pretty good. Here's a list of them if you don't know them by heart ;) :

You don't need a reason to help people

-- Zidane

How do you prove that you exist? Maybe we don't exist.

-- Vivi

One day I will be queen, but I will always be myself.

-- Garnet

Having sworn fealty, must I spend my entire life in servitude?

-- Steiner

To be forgotten is worse than death.

-- Freya

I do what I want! You have problem!?

-- Quina

The only dependable thing about the future is uncertainty.

-- Amarant

I've always wondered about this quote:

Dagger: How did you survive?
Zidane: I didn't have a choice. I had to come home to you. So... I sang your song.
Dagger: Our song.

because in the japanese version, it translates to this:

Dagger: Why did you help?
Zidane: There's no need for a reason to help... ...we've got to keep on living. That is why... ...I'm singing... ...that very song.

Quite a different meaning. I'm know very very little Japanese though, so I can't give my own opinion on what the writer was really trying to convey.

I know this is an old topic, but hopefully you guys won't mind more quotes. :)

"That gem used to be just another ordinary stone. The stone made a wish... 'I want to shine!' The stone traveled from person to person, in keeping with its wish... and now, it's shining in your hand, Dagger. If you're willing to make an effort, you'll shine, too, someday! The day will come when Alexandria needs you! There's no rush. The important thing is to have the desire."
~ Zidane... idn't he sho schweet?! :D

Meh, anyway... Thazzit for now. :)

Nothing can be better then "Ooh, soft". I'm sorry.

"life goes on, faster and faster every day, but we can slow life down with a few hours playing final fantasy"

"Fish all gone, I sad"-Quina :Sad:

Vorn: Devourer of Worlds

"I'm kupo for kupo nuts!" -- Moguta

Ha, I love that one. It's like the old slogan, "I'm coo coo for Cocoa Puffs!"

"This light make me feel like I turn into pot roast!" -- Quina

There are others, but other people can have them.

10-31-2002, 12:55 PM
"Ooo soft"

p.s. nice pic Vorn: Devourer of Worlds, chrono cross kicks ass.

Darn....you guys didn't leave anything for me...
By the way...There's one quote I would like to add...
"I'd rather my way or the hight way"
~Zidane saying that while climping the Lifa tree along with amrent, garnet, Eiko and Vivi..
That's for now

Besides my previously mentioned 'ooo soft' quote, some of the many jokes about Steiner's rusty armour stand out in my mind too! Particulary this one:

"C'mon Princess. Let's ditch 'Sir Rustalot' and get out of here!" Zidane, after Garnet's cover in the play is blown.


"Hah hah! That's a good one! Sorry, but I don't date bums. You really should scrape some of that rust off. It's disgusting!" Female dragoon in Lindblum's Business District, mistaking Steiner's request for directions for a bad pick-up line.


"I think so too Garnet. The female general of Alexandria, the best dragoon of Burmecia, and.... Rusty. How could they possibly lose?" Zidane, attempting to alay Garnet's fears for Beatrix, Freya and Steiner's safety after fleeing Alexandria.

You don't need a reason to help people

-- Zidane
how true. all he wanted to do was help and wanting to do something is a powerful thing. he helped someone who he didn't know all that well at the start of the game and i really liked that. i've done something similar to that and all because i wanted to. i didn't need a good reason (i cut my hair and donated it if you want to know and i plan to do that again (as soon as i have hair down to the middle of my back))

One day I will be queen, but I will always be myself.

-- Garnet
another how true one. who says that you have to change who you are?

I do what I want! You have problem!?

-- Quina
hehe. this one fits me perfectly. do not question what i do because (look at above quote)

I don't want to be alone anymore.

-- Eiko
who doesn't need a friend?

Yes! I love all the Rusty jokes.

Sometimes when I replay the game, I'll name Steiner Rusty for added giggles. XD
