Quote1 Put me off? You hired Deathstroke to decapitate me... Never looked up the word "subtle," I gather. Quote2
--Richard Swift (Prime Earth)

Quote1 To live a life everlasting is to value those of a shorter span of years. I've come to see that, of late. But I sense not a jot of remorse for your actions in either of you. And by God, I want you gone from me. Quote2

--Richard Swift (Prime Earth)

Quote1 If I recall the moment I became the Shade - the instant - it is just that, a moment in time. But simultaneously in my memory it took years. Cast adrift on an ebon tide. Agony, bliss, icy numbness, conflagrant light, anger, calm. And I became someone new. Quote2

--Richard Swift (Prime Earth)

Quote1 *Cough* ... I know we're kindred "shadow" spirits and all... but I have to say, Bete-Noire, you are a bore and a bully. I've killed people for being one or the other in the past, did you know that? Imagine what I'm going to do to you. Quote2

--Richard Swift (Prime Earth)

Quote1 And that was when I recalled something Blacksmith had told me... How, to native Australians, the earth, the people, the world... How everything is one within the dreaming. How, in the dreaming, my eternal spirit-child exists, along with everyone's, before birth on earth and after death. It is that part of me that reaches out now. Quote2

--Richard Swift (Prime Earth)

Quote1 How very uncivil, sir. How very rude. Why, I'll have you know... Some of my best friends are sodomites. Quote2

--Richard Swift (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Don't worry, sir. For your audacious choices in suit linings alone, you deserve to live. Quote2

--Richard Swift (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Though he'll never know it, I am the grandfather of young Albert Caldecott. I mean to see him safe. Quote2

--Richard Swift (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I'll refrain from the obvious lecture on how one should address one's elders and instead implore you to put an end to these theatrics. Armed, bespoke henchmen at your beck and call. Masonic cabals. I mean, it's hardly original... Like something out of a Bulldog Drummond adventure, or Rohmer. Quote2
