Hoyle I quotesEdit

The Kid

  • I don't think battling dragons is quite my idea of a good time, Princess Rosella.
  • I think we have very different ideas of what you should do with your spare time, Princess.
  • I might enjoy visiting this Daventry of yours, King Graham. But I don't think I'd enjoy meeting a dragon, really.
  • I don't think I'm quite as adventurous as you are, King Graham.

Colonel Henri Dijon

  • Girl, don't you know that this is 1925, not the Middle Ages?
  • I'm surrounded by lunatics! Fifi, I want to go home!
  • Another lunatic, talking about dragons and castles. You've been reading too many fairy tales, I think.
  • I'm absolutely surrounded by lunatics. And this one thinks that he's King Arthur. Jeeves, Fifi! Where are you? I want to go home!

Jerry Moore

  • I'd rather play King's Quest than actually fight monsters, Rosella!
  • I think I'd like to visit Daventry, but I don't think I want to fight a dragon, really.
  • I've spent a lot of time drawing Daventry for the King's Quest games, but I've never actually visited there. That might be a lot of fun.
  • From what I've seen of Daventry in the King's Quest games, it's really a beautiful country. I would like to visit there someday.

Warren Schwader

  • That is some dangerous territory. I don't think I would want to be programming there.
  • There is more to life than just Daventry. Have you ever visited Oakhurst?
  • I am more of an arcade programmer. I am just not into adventure games yet.
  • I will admit that your King's Quest program is interesting, but, there is so little time for reality that I just cannot concern myself with your dragons and castles.

Sonny Bonds

  • These quests sound interesting, your Highness, but I think I'll stick to solving homicide cases.
  • Maybe being a cop is like being a knight of Daventry, Princess. There's always someone that needs help, somewhere.
  • I'd like to visit Daventry, but I don't know if I'd want to live there. I just can't see myself trying to handcuff a dragon for airspeed violations.
  • I don't think it would be easy, being a cop in Daventry. Reading the Miranda rights to a dragon might be a little more than I can handle.


  • Can you tell me more about the people in Daventry? I'm very curious about your country.
  • I don't think I'm quite suited for the questing life! I'd rather explore the realm of mathematics instead, I think.
  • I've followed your career since King's Quest I, King Graham, and I think I would enjoy visiting Daventry someday.
  • Your daughter and I have met before, King Graham, and she's a very nice girl. Rosella is always trying to help someone, I think.

Roger Wilco

  • I can't believe this! You're talking about quests, and I'm still trapped in this stupid program!
  • Look, babe, can't you talk about some way to get me out of this game instead of this questing stuff?
  • Daventry sounds like an interesting place. If I ever get out of this Hoyle program, I'd like to visit there.
  • All of this Daventry stuff sounds kinda familiar. Something about a 'Don't Touch' button, somewhere....


  • I still don't think I'd like to wrestle with a dragon!
  • Just gettin' my owner to take me out for a walk seems like one your quests sometimes, Princess.
  • Daventry sounds like a fun place to visit. I wouldn't mind chasin' something unusual 'stead of my usual alley cats.
  • I think I could have fun, visitin' Daventry. Maybe I'd try some dragon steak 'stead of my usual canned dog food!


  • My life is boring, just school and work. I wish I could have adventures like you, Princess.
  • I wouldn't mind taking a break from School to save a few damsels in distress or fight off some evil knights, Rosella!
  • Daventry sounds like a great place to visit. You wouldn't happen to need any lawyers there, would you?
  • I've read about Daventry. I wish I could visit there. Maybe when I graduate college....

Shelly LeBlanc

  • We have gators in these swamps what must be mean as your dragon. Down about Morgan City, they drink oil and breath fire! And I not lyin!
  • If you want a real adventure, you come see these Louisiana swamp. We take pirogue out to the marsh 'round Angola. I show you snakes hanging from trees like sausage in butcher shop window!
  • Your Royal Highness, mon cheri
  • My brother, he get rid all your dragon problems. You just tell him, Emil, dragons, they good to eat, mais but they out of season!
  • Mais non! You tell more bigger stories. I know c'est vrai. Emil same way, no lie.

Devin Moore

  • Maybe I'll go on quests when I grow up, 'stead of being a starship captain!
  • I think I'd like to go on a quest someday.
  • Can the animals talk in Daventry? In one book that I read, all the animals could talk. It was really neat!
  • My dad knows all about Daventry! I think he did a lot of the art in the King's Quest games.


  • I think going on a quest would be fun! Except I'd want to read a lot of books about it before I get started....
  • These quests sound really interesting, your Highness, but kinda scary, too!
  • I've read about places like Daventry. "The Hobbit" was about a country that also had all kinds of interesting people and talking animals....
  • I really like reading about places like Daventry, 'specially books like "The Hobbit". The minute you start reading that book, everything suddenly is so real!

Christina Schwader

  • I don't know if this questing stuff would be really fun or not. It sounds kinda scary!
  • Isn't dangerous to go on these quests, Princess Rosella? I don't think I'd want to do it!
  • My daddy knows all the people who helped create Daventry as a game, Mister King.
  • But isn't Daventry just a make-believe place in a computer game, King Graham?

Larry Laffer

  • I still think rescuing a lady from a dragon is a great way to make a first impression!
  • Questing does sound kinda interesting, but I think I'd rather spend my Saturday nights out on the town, not in a dungeon.
  • Daventry does sound like a place I should visit. Maybe rescue a few damsels in distress, hey?
  • I've never thought about it, but rescuing a girl from a dragon would be a great first date, wouldn't it?

Sol Silverman

  • I'm glad to hear that you believe in tzdaka and mitzvot, Rosella... charity and good deeds. That's very important.
  • You're a good girl, Rosella. Maybe you'd like to meet my grandson, David? He's studying to be a doctor, and he's just about your age....
  • I would enjoy visiting Daventry, but I think I'd like to go to Russia first.
  • Do you have kosher restaurants in Daventry? I don't think dragons are kosher, though I'm sure they're very tasty.


  • I like hearin' these stories of yours, Rosella, but I don't think I'm brave enough to go on a quest myself!
  • I guess if I had to go on a quest, like you had to do to save your father, Rosella, maybe then I'd be brave enough.
  • I wouldn't mind spendin' my vacation in Daventry, suntanning on the castle wall, or swimming in the Raging River!
  • I think visiting Daventry might be real nice, but I'd be just a little afraid of gettin' carried off by a dragon!
