Ambient dialogue[edit]

For previous dialogue, see here.

At Moran Memorial
Refugee (1): Did you just arrive? It's been days since we heard any news. What's it like back home?
Refugee (2): Bad. I'm just glad I got out. How did you manage it?
Refugee (1): Our families sold everything to secure passage on a corsair ship. It was only enough for two berths.
Refugee (2): You're lucky the pirates kept their end of the bargain. I stowed away on a smuggler's skiff out of Amnoon.
Refugee (2): She found me, but she was Elonian, so she didn't toss me overboard.
Refugee (2): She took me out into the Sea of Sorrows and flagged down a Pact ship. A Vigil frigate brought me the rest of the way.
Child: Those tengu creep me out.
Cub: I heard they shoot arrows into you if you get too close to their dumb gates.
Child: Maybe we creep them out.
Child: What's it like at the bottom of the harbor?
Tad: The corals around our village are very pretty and the seaweed is very tasty.
Child: I wish I could stay underwater as long as you can.
Tad: Then you could eat tasty seaweed, toOo.
Child: Yuck! (laugh)
Citizen: Not sure how I feel about this giant...lobster thing...
Citizen: It makes me feel kind of hungry.
Tad: Quaggan found some more pretty shells for your collection.
Child: Ooh, those are great! Thank yoOou! (giggle)
Citizen: You think it's okay to fish from here?
Citizen: I don't know. There sure are a lot of warning signs around...
Citizen: But I think I saw fish jumping, right out there.
Citizen: I wouldn't mind a nice fish dinner. How about I watch out for Lionguard?
At Macha's Landing
Lionguard Captain: No, no, no! What is that idiot doing over there?
Lionguard Captain: Are you trying to commit arson? Look around you.
Welder: Is it my fault those idiots piled up all this timber around me?
Lionguard Captain: Just watch where—
Lionguard Inspector Wholley: Help me out, here—which crates are your crew planning on sneaking off with today?
Foreman Joshua: I'd hate to ruin the surprise, Inspector.
Foreman Joshua: So you, uh, you heard about that thing with Gnashblade?
Lionguard Inspector Wholley: Yeah, you're on your own with that one. Unless you want to file a complaint, maybe give a statement on the incident?
Foreman Joshua: I look insane to you?
Foreman Joshua: (sigh) Look at this lot. All my best workers blown to the Mists by that crazy sylvari...
Foreman Joshua: There's nothing else going on in the city, so they've got you hassling me down here?
Lionguard Inspector Wholley: Just doing my part for the Council's new initiative to tighten up harbor security. I guess.
Foreman Joshua: Yeah, yeah. I've read the posted notices.
Lionguard Inspector Wholley: So you can read? Makes me wonder why you opened up that Southsun cargo before we could inspect it for invasive species.
Foreman Joshua: Funny thing—the Consortium didn't list stowaway karka hatchlings on their shipping manifest.
Foreman Joshua: (sigh) Who cursed me with this job?
Foreman Joshua: Maybe after a few days of smooth Black Lion shipments, Gnashblade will forget that one lost crate.
Lionguard Inspector Wholley: All this cargo is starting to blur together.
Lionguard Inspector Wholley: Whoever designed this place wasn't worried about triggering panic attacks in karka attack survivors.
Lionguard Inspector Wholley: Guess I had this coming. Asking the wrong questions of the wrong people.
Lionguard Inspector Wholley: Wouldn't mind owning a boat of my own someday. Maybe do a little fishing...
Lionguard Inspector Wholley: Can't say I'm looking forward to briefing Magnus on the mess down here.
Dock Worker (1): Gnashblade nearly tore the foreman in half for "misplacing" part of his shipment yesterday.
Dock Worker (2): No. Evon came down here himself? You, uh, you didn't say anything...?
Dock Worker (1): Pfft. I'm no rat. Still, I'd lie real low for a while, if I was dumb enough to do what you did.
Dock Worker (1): No one around here appreciates this kind of attention.
Dock Worker (2): Didn't think he'd miss one lousy crate... (groan)
Dock Worker (1): Just look at all those ships they got lined up for us in the harbor.
Dock Worker (2): You know it. Going to be a long one, pal.
Dock Worker (1): Since we're pals and all, how about you sign me out so I can hit Trader Jikk's early?
Dock Worker (2): Yeah, I'm all done doing that, "pal." Just so we're clear.
Dock Worker (1): This sylvari walks into a bar, but she trips over her sword, falls flat on the floor—
Dock Worker (2): I've heard this one.
Dock Worker (1): The bartender laughs and says, "Nice face plant."
Dock Worker (2): I said, I've heard it.
Dock Worker (1): And the sylvari just giggles and says, "Thanks. I just carved it off your bouncer."
Dock Worker (1): So then they tell me I'm just going to have to get used to working around them, like it's no big deal.
Dock Worker (2): Uh huh.
Dock Worker (1): And this was only weeks after one of those things tore up our city here!
Dock Worker (2): Right.
Dock Worker (1): I marched right up to the subdirector and told him I was done.
Dock Worker (2): That's good.
Dock Worker (1): I mean, no way was I going to stay on Southsun with all those stinking karka scuttling around.
Dock Worker (1): I don't know if I feel good about how the council has been spending our money.
Dock Worker (2): Why is that? The city looks beautiful.
Dock Worker (3): What are you two gossiping about?
Dock Worker (1): I'm just saying a lavish waterfront may not be the best use of our reconstruction funds.
Dock Worker (3): After everything Lion's Arch has been through, I think a makeover is just what we needed.
Dock Worker (1): (whistles) Look at that one. You sure are easy on this old sea dog's yes! Oh yeah.
Dock Worker (2): You don't have to say everything that pops into your head out loud.
Dock Worker: Be a pal, cover for me for a bit. What do you say...? Hello?
Dock Worker: Aw, no. Forgot to pack a lunch again.
Dock Worker: (burp) Ow.
Dock Worker: (groan) Someone, turn down the sun.
Dock Worker: Can't believe they let you practically live at that bar.
Dock Worker: Whoa. Was that you, or did the tide just go out?
Dock Worker: They don't pay me enough to listen to you all day.
Dock Worker: Our workload would go a lot faster if you, you know, ever did your share.
Dock Worker: You're a real piece of work, you know that?
Dock Worker: Not that I have anything against them, mind you. Some of my best friends are shrubbery.
Dock Worker: Please shut up.
Dock Worker: Pfft. Everyone's so uptight around here.
Dock Worker: Put me in charge, and I'll have things here shipshape in no time, believe you me.
Dock Worker: Can you believe the Lionguard let that thug just walk, after what he did on Southsun?
Dock Worker: Will this shift ever end?
Dock Worker: Thaumanova cleanup detail was better than this.
Dock Worker: I must be nearing the end of my lifespan by now.
In Moorookoo Village
Quaggan: (purr) Quaggans are together and safe.
Quaggan: The time is here for a new start.
Quaggan: Quaggan's tummy is grumbly.
Quaggan: Maybe someday quaggan will find a mate and have tadpoles too.
Quaggan: Quaggan is pleased to be home, but so many did not return.
Quaggan: Quaggan thinks this is a lovely community.
Quaggan: Quaggans will live here forever and ever.
Quaggan: Quaggan's mama decided to stay in Oogooth, near Mellaggan.
Quaggan: Quaggan's brothers might come live here too.
Quaggan: There's so much rubble in the water now. It will give the fish new places to hide.
Quaggan: Quaggan saw Ellen Kiel. She is... tall.
Quaggan: Do you like the new city? Quaggan thinks it looks hard.
Quaggan: Quaggans should build more pods.
Quaggan: Life is too short and full of foo. But we can swim!
Quaggan: Quaggan loves Lion's Arch
Quaggan: Oh, foo. Quaggan is hungry again
Quaggan: There is a place nearby where quaggans can cultivate fooOOood land.
Quaggan: Quaggan knows nothing about agriculture.
Quaggan: One of the empty pods would be good for storage
Quaggan: Maybe quaggan could be a smuggler. No one would suspect quaggan.
Quaggan: If smugglers come through, do not interfere.'
Quaggan (1): Quaggans are lucky to be in Lion's Arch.
Quaggan (2): Indeeeeed.
Quaggan (1): Quaggans can become agricoooltural.
Quaggan (2): Not a bad idea. Quaggans could better control food supplies.
Quaggan (1): Quaggan likes sticking to a routine.
Quaggan (2): Yes, quaggan knows.
Quaggan (1): Did you hear the story of Bloomanoo and Peneloopee's adventures?
Quaggan (2): Yes, quaggan did. SooOOooo harrowing! Quaggan is glad they made it back.
Quaggan (1): It's so nice to have tads in the community again.
Quaggan (2): They're adorable, aren't they?
Quaggan: The waters here have a city taste.
Quaggan: Quaggans must be smart and make sure there's plenty of seaweed in stock:
Tadpole: (purr)
Tadpole: Swim!
Tadpole: Quaggah hungry.
Tadpole: Quaggah pretty.
Tadpole: Coo hoo!
Tadpole: Mama!
Tadpole: Coo.
Tadpole: CooOOoo.
Tadpole: HooOOooo
Tadpole: Mama, looOOook!
Tadpole: Hee hee.
Peneloopee: Shoosh now, shoosh ooo OOO.
Peneloopee: The time has come to slee-eep.
Peneloopee: Let the water rock you...
Peneloopee: to the rhythm of the deep.
Peneloopee: Quaggan sings a dream...
Peneloopee: where you're a shiny bubble.
Peneloopee: Just a tiny nubble...
Peneloopee: afloat in a briny sea.
Peneloopee: OoooOOOoooo oooOOoOoOooooo
(Bloomanoo repeats)
