Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Metagaming Prologue[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Homer Icon.png "I love this medieval life!"
“You get to crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of their Flanderses."
"I’m going to miss it when it’s gone."
"And the elixir. Oh God, how I’m going to miss that sweet purple, purple, purple elixir!"
"Purple."
Bart Icon.png "I just wish I’d gone with a different character."
"Skulking in the shadows as a goblin thief has been fun and all, but it takes me an hour every day to get into makeup."
"I want to spend an hour every day getting into armor!"
If the player does not buy the Shadow Night
Bart Icon.png "Aw, come on! How am I supposed to stomp noobs without the newest, overpowered store item."
If the player does buy the Shadow Night
Bart Icon.png "Man, this outfit comes with everything! It’s got a flaming sword, a throne with a beer stein, and it makes me three feet taller! Today, I am a man. A towering, scary man!"

Video Game Of Thrones[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Shadow Knight Icon.png "TREMBLE BEFORE THE CHAOTIC EVIL POWER OF THE SHADOW KNIGHT!"
Milhouse Icon.png "Whoa, that’s your coolest outfit yet! But I don’t understand how you have it, Bart."
Shadow Knight Icon.png "I AM NOT BART! I AM THE SHADOW KNIGHT — THE MOST FEARED WARRIOR IN ALL OF EARTHLAND REALMS!"
Milhouse Icon.png "Right. But Earthland Realms is a made-up place from a videogame."
"This is the very real place of post-apocalyptic Springfield. It doesn't make sense for you to be here."
Shadow Knight Icon.png "WHAT ABOUT ABRAHAM LINCOLN? OR KANG AND KODOS? OR CHESTER DUPREE?"
Milhouse Icon.png "Yeah, they dont really fit in either."
"But at least we made explanations for their being here. Whats the explanation for this?"
Shadow Knight Sad Icon.png "Jeez Buzzkill-house, you’re starting to sound like my sister."

Metagaming Pt. 1[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Shadow Knight Icon.png "PREPARE TO TASTE THE COLD STEEL OF THE SHADOW KNIGHT’S SWORD!"
Milhouse Icon.png "I’m not sure it’d be possible for anyone to taste anything of yours. You’re just an avatar from a videogame, remember?"
Shadow Knight Icon.png "UGH! THIS AGAIN?!"
Shadow Knight Neutral Icon.png "Look, I've been thinking — what if we just admit that this is all a videogame? That’s how we got that barbarian guy in here."
Barbarian Icon.png "Smithers and me am talking marriage. Does Homer still do that?"
Shadow Knight Neutral Icon.png "Man, I forgot how far that story went off the rails."
Milhouse Icon.png "But even though we’re in a videogame, you’re still from a videogame inside us."
Shadow Knight Neutral Icon.png "Exactly! So we’re both from videogames. I’m just on the wrong server, or got a computer virus, or telnet-url-imdb-something…"
Milhouse Icon.png "Sorry Bart, but Earthland Realms isn't another game — it’s a game within the game. It can’t be real in our world because we've already defined it as fake."
Shadow Knight Sad Icon.png "You’re supposed to call me Shadow Knight."

Metagaming Pt. 2[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Milhouse Icon.png "Still wrestling with your existence, Shadow Knight?"
Shadow Knight Sad Icon.png "It just seems so unfair. My mom was a witch. Homer’s been a million things. Even Ned Flanders got to be the devil, with kick-ass flames shooting out him!"
Milhouse Icon.png "I know, pretty much anyone can be anything…as long as they come from a parallel universe."
Shadow Knight Neutral Icon.png "But isn't Earthland Realms a parallel universe?"
Milhouse Icon.png "Please, a universe can’t be parallel to the universe that contains it. It’s the first rule of story-telling. You, my friend, are fictional."
Shadow Knight Happy Icon.png "That’s it! That can be my explanation! I’m a fictional character that came to life in the real world…just like in one of those several movies where that happens!"
Milhouse Icon.png "Do you really want to do that story?"
Shadow Knight Sad Icon.png "No. I just want to go on a killing spree. I saw it in my task list."

Metagaming Pt. 3[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Shadow Knight Sad Icon.png *weary sigh*
Milhouse Icon.png "Where are you going, Shadow Knight?"
Shadow Knight Sad Icon.png "To kill myself by jumping off a bridge. I just have to find a road square placed over a water square."
Milhouse Icon.png "Don’t do that. Just because the logic of your existence is in doubt, doesn't mean you can’t have a little fun."
Shadow Knight Sad Icon.png "I’m just a game within a game. What could I do that’d be fun?"
Milhouse Icon.png "Play a game?"

Metagaming Pt. 4[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Shadow Knight Happy Icon.png "Did you see my berserker ranger kill that army of orcs? God, it was awesome!"
Milhouse Icon.png "I just didn't understand how a medieval knight could have lock-on targeting, or a heads-up-display, or carry so many throwing axes…"
Shadow Knight Happy Icon.png "Who cares? It reminded me of the cardinal rules of videogames — things don’t have to make sense as long as they’re fun!"
Milhouse Icon.png "I don’t know. I like how in Assassin’s Creed they spend the first two hours of the game explaining how you interface and abilities are from a near-future technology allowing you to replay your ancestors past encoded in the DNA of-"
Milhouse Sick Icon.png *getting stabbed noise*
Shadow Knight Neutral Icon.png "No. What was fun about that game was what’s fun about every game...killing people!"
Shadow Knight Icon.png "THE SHADOW KNIGHT IS BACK!"
