What are some of your favorite lines from the game made by NPCs? The reason for starting this threat is because the writers do a whole lot of work to make some of the NPC's come alive and I know that players have some favorite moments from their personal stories. I think this should be a place to share them. I happen to like Trahearne's speech from the vision on Arah.

"Defenders of Tyria! When Zhaitan rose from slumber, the dragon found a long-dead nation and claimed it. The dragon expected the rest of Tyria to be as easily conquered. But we live, and we breathe, and we fight! Together — charr and human, Priory and Vigil, all races and all paths of life; we stand against Zhaitan. The dragon wants us to be afraid because fear will tear us apart. Fear will destroy us! But I tell you this — I am not afraid! I may die, but I will never kneel! Did you feel that? It is the dragon who is afraid! To Arah, and victory!"
Trahearne, A Light in the Darkness

    Taimi's holodisk dialogue during the HoT story line.

    First disk
    Taimi Hologram: I hope you find this, Commander! We went ahead, following Zojja, Logan, and Trahearne's path.
    Taimi Hologram: I can't wait to hear what happened with the egg! We saw a light, and then the city went nuts!
    Taimi Hologram: Please remember every minute facet of what happened! I'm going to need to hear it in excruciating detail. For instance, was the—
    Taimi Hologram: Uh, okay, Rytlock is signaling me to wrap it up, so...
    Taimi Hologram: I have a few of these holo-disks left.
    Taimi Hologram: Just follow them south through that cavern and you'll catch up with us in not time! Happy trails!
    Second disk
    Taimi Hologram: Hi! We're headed that way... Scruffy, are you recording?
    Taimi Hologram: Are you sure? Why isn't the light on?
    Taimi Hologram: Better erase this one and start over. Just start over.
    Player: Hmmm... Not as informative as I would have hoped.
    Third disk
    Player: Another one of Taimi's messages...
    Taimi Hologram: Okay, so we seem to have wandered into a den of vinetooths... Teeth? Tooths or teeth? Anyway, super dangerous!
    Taimi Hologram: So, you know, watch your back. We saw some campfires south of here, so we're headed—
    Taimi Hologram: Uh-oh! Is that—? Okay, gotta go!
    Fifth disk
    Taimi Hologram: Still on the trail, but Scruffy's picking up some odd readings over that way.
    Taimi Hologram: I'm trying to convince everyone to investigate.
    Taimi Hologram: So far my efforts have been unsuccessful. Tribune Killjoy over there, am I right?
    Taimi Hologram: Hopefully you killed a vinetooth or two on your way. If so, good job! If not, it's right behind you!
    Taimi Hologram: Kidding. Maybe? See you soon.

    There are a couple hunters in Queensdale that make a joke about ferocious beasts, and one says "I thought you wife wasn't pregnant anymore" or something along those lines. I can't find the quote but it's golden. Someone find it and post it.

    My favorite early line: (though I am paraphrasing and probably screwing this up.)
    Zojja: “Shut your talk-hole, bookah. Every time it opens, you drip stupid all over my floor.”

    Canach's comments about Caudecus Beetlestone's proclivities toward Logan Thackaray, and his style of dress and decorating... Canach, in general, is well voiced and has fun lines.
    During the LWS3 episode line re: the ' razor of fate swinging'... and the commander's response: 'fate's razor? No, nevermind.' It was well set-up.

    Excuse my paraphrasing. None of these are direct quotes.

    My favorite non-story ambient NPC chatter is from Snowden Drifts:
    Hunter #1: The spring water is a lot warmer here than at home.
    Hunter #2: That's because there's a drake in the tunnels below, breathing fire on the rocks.
    Hunter #1: Really?
    Hunter #2: Sure. There's also a krait catching our fish and a centaur giving rides to the children.

    I didn't say I hated it, though?

    Exactly! I also love the part in LS2 where he's still under Anise's leash and Canach realizes how good she is at a Memser and says something like: "I wonder if you really are as old as you loo--"

    Anise shuts him down before finishing. XD

    Saul D'Alessio: "Now i'm free."

    Personally loved the Deimos fight, and I hope we get to see more stuff like it in the future.

    Keeper Pamir: Remember the old Sunspear saying, Kossan.
    Kossan: ' You never fight alone...'

    It we really nice to hear the Sunspear motto again. I'm kinda surprised that the actual Sunspear npcs did not say it. (They may have said it, and I probably missed it.)

    Countess Anise: "The note said that Estelle was in a bandit gambling parlor when she was supposedly spying on our queen. Reminding her of this will be enough to make her drop her lie faster than Faren's dignity."

    Some epitaphs are also memorable.

    He thought tickling moas would be a joy
    And then they kicked to death that silly boy
    
    He thought he could
    Outrun a centaur
    
    Got everything for free, never satisfied with what he got
    We hope he'll be happy with this plot
    
    He learned an important lesson about fighting
    Don't stand in water when casting lightning
    
    Her passing came as a surprise to all
    Including her incompetent doctor.
    

    Phlunt is also funny, when he calls Taimi "progeny" and "little degenerate".
    I also loved my mentor when he said "Burn me! I'm a human girl! Whoa, I've got two hands and some lovely... apples". That cutscene was hilarious.
    These days we always hear "Whoa! You scared me! That's the most hideous mask I ever saw!". "What mask?". But it's always funny.

    Trahearne (WELL DONE!), Canach, our character itself (female human/asura, male charr, it doesn't matter that much) they all have wonderful voice actors. I'm in love with this game mostly for the quality of the dubbing (voice and lines). When you explore the map and take a rest on a random outpost and stay there minutes to listen to the dialogues of 2 random sylvari (a knight and a scholar), an asura and a naive sylvari (did you fall from a tree? no, not today), or a charr humming a song with his deep voice. It's wonderful.

    There's a spot in Divinity's Reach where some children trade off a patch of grass as a play space:

    Little Figo: No girls allowed. Only centaurs!
    Melonni: You're not the boss of me, horseface! We were here first.
    Little Figo: No, you weren't. I'm gonna knock your butt in the mud!
    Melonni: Oh, no you won't. Gwen! Jora! Prepare to deploy cooties!
    Little Figo: Get away! Don't touch me! (...runs away with his friends)
    Melonni: Rawr! I'm a charr, and I'm going to eat you!

    As a primarily Charr player, I often get a chuckle as my characters stumble on that conversation.

    Asura conversations with anyone else are almost always interesting, especially when it doesn't go as planned:

    Bachlag (Sylvari): Look out, sir! There's a charr nearby!
    Eblo (Asura): Don't worry, sprout. Charr may look tough, but it's an act. all roar, no claws.
    Backlag: But they're monsters! They'll eat me, won't they? Do they eat vegetables?
    Eblo: Meat, vegetables, fruit, catnip—but I don't think they'd eat you.
    Eblo: What? Did you fall off the tree yesterday?
    Bachlag: Certainly not, sir! I fell off the tree five days ago! I fell off a turnip cart yesterday.
    
    Gate Assistant (Sylvari): Your golem is strange. Was strange, rather.
    Gate Engineer (Asura): You drove it away, you know. I've never seen a golem run that fast.
    Gate Assistant: I only wanted to ask it a few questions.
    Gate Engineer: Oh, I know. You guys are full of them.
    Gate Assistant: Oh, yes. What it's like to be a golem? Does it dream? Does it have a family?
    Gate Engineer: That was the last straw you know. After that question about turtles in the desert, you asked it about its mother.
    Gate Assistant: So?
    Gate Engineer: It doesn't have a mother. It's a golem. You crossed its circuits. I don't know how you did it, but you weirded out MY golem!
    Gate Assistant: So, you are the mother? Or the father?
    Gate Engineer: What? Well, I—I guess I... Oh no. You're not getting in my head. You just stand there and help me monitor the gate.
    Gate Engineer: Am I the mother? Blazing braces, this is what I get for working with the tree children.
    

    The Gate crew can have fun even without anyone else to talk to:

    Graff: Personal log: These norn call me "squab". I presume they mean it as an insult or taunt.
    
    Gatekeeper: So, I told him, "New regulations stipulate you must remove your boots and belt before traveling."
    Gatekeeper (2): And he fell for it?
    Gatekeeper: Completely. He had to hold his pants up as he entered the gate.

    I highly encourage it. If you're not in a rush to get somewhere, take the long way and explore a bit. The offsides NPC chatter really adds something to the GW2 world that I don't see in other MMOs, and I love it for that. :)
