"Sir Tydus wanted me to evaluate you. And everything, including this conversation, is part of the evaluation, so try to say something sensible."
"What brings you here?"
to Mesmers
"What is it, Mesmer? You can't possibly think I have anything to teach you. I don't pay attention to the latest fashions. Sebedoh is your man." [sic]
to Monks, Necromancers, Rangers and Warriors
"If you are not an Elementalist, I certainly have nothing to teach you."
if spawned together with Sebedoh the Mesmer
Sebedoh the Mesmer: "Good day, Howland. Lovely weather, eh?"
Howland the Elementalist: "And to you, Sebedoh. The weather is acceptable, I suppose."
Sebedoh the Mesmer: "Aye, though all this sunshine makes me sleepy."
if spawned together with Ciglo the Monk
Howland the Elementalist: "Hail, Monk. Good day to you."

Howland the Elementalist: "Ahem...yes, to you as well Verata."
if spawned together with Artemis the Ranger
Artemis the Ranger: "Howland, you're looking even more dour than usual this fine day. What's on your mind, friend?"
Howland the Elementalist: "Ah, Artemis. And you are as cheerful and chatty as ever. I was just contemplating the nature of the elements as they relate to the seasons and the cycles of the human...."
Artemis the Ranger: "Stop! You're making my head hurt!"
if spawned together with Van the Warrior
Van the Warrior: "Greetings and good day, Howland. Howland? Hello?"
