The Quotations Game

The Quotations Game

I recently came across a very good idea for a game to be played inside any forum, specially on those dedicated to video games.
The idea is quite simple, just make a conversation using phrases from the game.

Now, the conversation has to be somehow coherent and only GF and/or any other LucasArts game quotes are allowed, however some words can be added or changed in order for them to work, also phrases might be repeated. Oh, and it does not necessarily have to be in chronologycal order.

I'm beginning with:

“Sorry for the wait, I am ready to take you now”

"Like we would ever make it out of town alive...in one piece I mean."


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!
