Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "I built myself a taste mechanism, so I can drink some ale!"
  • "This sentence is false, or is it?" (A common logical paradox often associated with robots).
  • "Sometimes I come off a bit... Get it? a bit?"

When Pirate is present:

  • "Sure, me and [Name of Pirate] are pals, but I hate it when his parrot does his business on me. That stuff's corrosive!"

When Steampunker is present:

  • "So that 'punk' lookin' chick is an inventor, eh? I think I could show her a thing or two!"

Desktop Version When Tavernkeep is present:

  • "[Name of Tavernkeep] said I reminded him of a certain "EV2". Perhaps I should meet her." (This is a reference to the character EV2 in Dungeon Defenders 2.)

Desktop Version During a Party:

  • "This party is going to be nuts, maybe even bolts!"
