Quotes

Heloise: That's the third brownout this week.
Gillen: If we don't fix the Wellspring soon, Your Majesty-...
Margo Hanson: One problem at a time, okay? Our soldiers are deserting us in protest, thanks to Julia committing tree genocide.
Tick Pickwick: Pardon me, Your Majesty. For the official records, may I suggest a slightly less incendiary term? Perhaps "arbicide"?
