This week I will mostly be hunting monsters in Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. While I prefer games that allow me to create my own character, I have a soft spot for Geralt’s brand of grizzled snark. With that in mind (and to save me having to write a proper post) here are some of my favourite one liners, from games, films, TV, and comic books:
1. Right, and then I’ll have to run barefoot into the top of a volcano.
There are probably better examples of Geralt’s sarcasm, but as a Lord of the Rings fan this makes me giggle every time.
2. Yeah? I have clones.
Peter Parker is known for his mid-fight banter, but I prefer the little snarky moments during team talk. This line (from New Avengers Vol.1 #4) was my non-sequitur of choice for a while.
3. Out. For. A. Walk….Bitch.
It’s always hard to choose a Joss Whedon one liner, but this moment from Spike is a classic (albeit the scene is a little creepy without context).
4. We now have a dog, and Alistair is still the dumbest one in the party.
Ah, Morrigan and Alistair, the great snark-fest of Dragon Age Origins. This line really sets the tone for the petty sibling rivalry that was the backdrop to most of my playthroughs.
5. The word I’m searching for, I can’t say….
Toy Story took ‘giving the parents something to laugh at’ to a whole new level, and this is my favourite of Woody’s many quotable lines.
Did I pick one of your favourite lines, or have I missed a really obvious one? As always, let me know, and share your own favourite one liners, in the comments.
