- Orc male N. Kagnito: I think calling them "demons" is a gross generalization. Why does everything has to have a label? I mean, who made them the bad guys all of a sudden?
- Dwarf male Barley McFrothbeard: Oh, they only want to DESTROY AZEROTH, ya flea-brained twit!

- Gnome male Spoggle Greasecakes: Truly, Zangarmarsh is a land beset by conflict.Its woes come not only from the ogres, but from the secret and sinester naga as well.

- Gnome male Strombone: Strombone was wondering, has anything like this happened before?
- Pilt:IconSmall Khadgar.gif Khadgar: The only time we had a stench like this, Tobias had whipped up some sort of rare delicacy.
|Interview with Tobias|
- Broken male Tobias the Filth Gorger: I don't know what might be causing this alleged odor, but it would have to come from an object so rare and so foul... kind of like this rotten arakkoa egg here. It's unique in that it— oh! Excuse me!
