"There is a saying among my people. A man who trusts can never be betrayed, only mistaken."
"Life expectancy must be fairly short among your people."
2) VILA AND AVON:
"Avon's gadget works!"
"It just occurred to me that as the description of a highly sophisticated technological achievement, `Avon's gadget works' seems to lack a certain style."
3) AVON AND BLAKE:
"Imagine you're standing at the edge of a cliff."
"I suppose you're not standing behind me."
4) VILA AND AVON:
"I always knew you had a friend. I used to say to people, `Avon must have a friend somewhere in the galaxy.'."
"And you were right. That must be a novel experience for you."
5) VILA AND CALLY:
"I'll bring you back a present, Cally. What would you like? Name it and it's yours."

"Now you're just being modest."
7) AVON AND VILA:
"A quarter million volts are running through that converter. One false move, I'll be so crisped up, what's left of me won't fit on a sandwich."
"I'm a vegetarian. Thanks for the offer, though."
8) BLAKE AND VILA:
"Be careful of the plant life here, some of it's carnivorous. Some even have an intelligence rating."
"Well, that's a comfort. I should hate to be eaten by something stupid."
9) VILA AND AVON:

"I've got this shocking pain right behind the eyes."

11) VILA AND AVON:
"Die? I can't do that."

12) KERR AVON:
"Auron may be different, but on Earth it is considered ill-mannered to kill your friends while committing suicide."
13) VILA RESTAL:
"If it ever comes to a showdown, my money's on Blake. Well, half of it anyway, I'll put the other half on Avon."
14) KERR AVON:
"I have never understood why it is necessary to become irrational in order to prove that you care, or why it is necessary to prove it at all."
15) VILA RESTAL:
"When Avon holds out the hand of friendship, watch his other hand. That's the one with the hammer."
16) VILA RESTAL:
"There isn't a volcano that would dare to swallow Avon. He's so cold, he'd put out the fire, anyway."
17) VILA RESTAL:
"I've had my mind adjusted by some of the best in the business. It just won't stay adjusted."
