Old Ptolemy: His tragedy was one of increasing loneliness and impatience with those who could not understand him, and if his desire to unite Greek and barbarian ended in failure... what failure?

And the greatest of these is the one they now... call "Megas Alexandros" - the greatest Alexander of them all.More [03/23/2007 12:03:00]

Zeke: Like I said, calluses.More [10/26/2007 12:10:00]

Brock Mitchell:
Clay's right - trouble grows around me like weeds. Everyone I touch... I shouldn't of come back. I'm leaving.



Tracy Mitchell:
All right, you leave again, but not without me. You think I tried to keep the ranch goin' for myself? I don't want it without you; I don't want any part of that loneliness again. You hit the trail, I hit it with you. You live in the saddle - a saddle bum - I live it with you. You can't run away from it any more, Brock. I'm tired of holding the fort by myself.

Gertrud Kanning:
I was thinking about your creed, remember?



Gabriel Lidman:
I don't know what you mean.



Gertrud Kanning:

The Monster:
For as long as I can remember people have hated me. They looked at my face and my body and they ran away in horror. In my loneliness I decided that if I could not inspire love, which is my deepest hope, I would instead cause fear. I live because this poor half-crazed genius, has given me life. He alone held an image of me as something beautiful and then, when it would have been easy enough to stay out of danger, he used his own body as a guinea pig to give me a calmer brain and a somewhat more sophisticated way of expressing myself.

Mary Barrie:
What?



J.M. Barrie:
Give up Canaan



Mary Barrie:
But Jim, I thought we'd agreed...



J.M. Barrie:
We agreed nothing! Please, Mary, I can't stand the loneliness without you!



Mary Barrie:
You won't be lonely. You have plenty of friends. You have Sylvia.



J.M. Barrie:
What has she got to do with this?



Mary Barrie:
Sylvia has always meant far more to you than I have. And once you and I are divorced, I don't see why you and she can't...



J.M. Barrie:
[shocked] Sylvia is a married woman!



Mary Barrie:
Oh, Arthur's been dead for almost three years!



J.M. Barrie:
That makes no difference whatsoever! Sylvia is devoted to Arthur! Why, I would no more think of coming between Sylvia and Arthur than I would Canaan coming between us!

Nicholas:
There. The spell is cast. Now, everyone in town will know the loneliness they've made me feel.



The Spirit:
Not quite. Look. These two children still care very much about everyone... except you.



Nicholas:
But they weren't at all under my spell.



The Spirit:
Ah, but those soft little bears shield your spell with their love and caring.



Nicholas:
Ah, let them go. I'm even now.



The Spirit:
Are you? What about all the others?



Nicholas:
Others?



The Spirit:
All the others that you have not yet cast your spells on. All the others that still care.



Nicholas:
I've gotten even with the whole town. That's all I wanted.



The Spirit:
The others will come after you for what you've done.



Nicholas:
What should I do?



The Spirit:
You must finish it! Go ahead! Say it!



Nicholas:
Neebo, weebo, tick tock, reebo, zeebo, zip zap, zock!



The Spirit:
This spell will seek out the children and bring them to us at any cost!



Nicholas:
Isn't there another way?



The Spirit:
No! They must be taught a lesson! A lesson for the children! A lesson for the town! A lesson for everyone!



Nicholas:
What do you mean everyone?



The Spirit:
Now, go!



Nicholas:
A lesson? What kind of lesson?



The Spirit:
Never mind that. You must now collect the ingredients for your next spell.

Zack Stone:
Now don't get me wrong. I have great respect for women like you and Miss Kitty who manage to maintain their dignity and their loneliness in a hellhole like Oblivion. I want you to know that I am here for you... as your Marshal, as your friend, or anything else you damn well need me to be.

Steerpike:
I understand!



Lady Fuchsia:
No, you don't!

Lady Fuchsia:
I'm sorry!
