Alanna- "what is it?"

Alanna- "No!"

Raoul- "I hadn't meant to say anything, but since i have the chance- Alan, you seam to think we won't like you unless you do things just like everyone els. Have you ever thought we might like you because you'r different?

Jon- "I'm Jonathan- to my friends. kings and princes should be friendly, don't you agree?"

Alanna- "pigs might fly"

Duke gareth- "very good, Aram, you've turned out a machless swordsman"
Aram Sklaw- " 'twasn't me, yer gace, 'twas the lad trebond, and he did it all by himself"

Jonathan- I didn't come to have people treating me as if I'm made of gold"

Alanna- "that's because i'm the only one with insanity in my family"

Alanna- "B-but, isn't it different? now that you know--"
Jonathan- "that you'r a girl? no, not in the way you mean. girl, boy, or dancing bear, you'r the finest page--he fines squire-to-be-- at court"

Jonathan- "Alanna of trebond- I will be honord if you will serve me as you'r squire"

Alanna- "nonsense, I'm as fit as--"
*she stumbled, and Jon caught her*
Jonathan- "you most certainly are"

Alanna- "the biggest attack this summer, and I'm supposed yo hide in my tent?, and me being your squire? are you out of your mind?"

Hilam- "Jemis is very harsh, I'm not. it's going to take more than these little barbs to pierce my armor--"
