Lady Althea and Old Mac[edit]

Old Mac: See here, miss! I understand you're responisble for what's happened to my poor Bill!
Lady Althea: You must be mistaken. I know no Bill.
Old Mac: Bill the Bull, lady. You had him killed, and I demand recompense!
Lady Althea: I think not, sir. Your "poor Bill'[sic] was loose and attacking citizens in the Ashford road. He was put down, and rightly so. Perhaps you'll keep a closer eye on your livestock in the future.
Old Mac: You've not heard the last of this! I'll get what's comming to me, or I'll see your precious theathre shut down, I will!

Rurik and Osric[edit]

Prince Rurik: Lovely, isn't she?
Captain Osric: As lovely as the day is long. You're a lucky man, Your Highness.
Prince Rurik: Aye, that I am.
Captain Osric: And what of the blessed event? Have you set a date?
Prince Rurik: No, but I've got a more pressing problem, believe it or not.
Captain Osric: What is it, my prince?
Prince Rurik: It's Althea's birthday tomorrow, and I haven't a gift for her. I've searched the shops, the treasure room...I need something utterly unique and breathtaking. Like Althea.
Captain Osric: Don't give it another thought, Your Highness. Leave it to me.
Prince Rurik: You've served me well in trying times, Osric, and for that you have my respect. If you can do this thing for me, you'll have my undying gratitude, as well.
