Parson: Yeah, I get it. You've got some important things to talk to me about. But there's "important" and there's "urgent."
Getting through here is urgent.

Parson: We're not at war with Charlie right now. We're at war with Jetstone, and they're probably kicking our ass today.
So what's it gonna take for you to let me through this portal? Huh? What if I swear to come back and talk as soon as I can?

Isaac: You still want to go through?

Parson: Yes!

Isaac: So that... you may execute your... lack of a plan?

Parson: YES!

Maggie: YES!

Abner Washboard: They been thinkin' a while.

Jojo: Yes, they're negotiating.

Dove Barstool: They better not come out of it with a deal.

Sean Mattox[1] Carnymancer: We should just blast him while he's talking.

Marie: I don't like how those Connys ah looking. Stay close and watch them.

Phillip: Relax. He'll get through the door, you know that.

Marie: Yes, fine.
But in one piece, we don't know.

Marie: So we make sure. We take the hits for him, if it stots.
We give our lives if need be.

Jojo: No. Several reasons no.
Not least of which is that if we break neutrality first, we'll be the criminals.
As usual.
He's hard to enforce. We're all too easy.

Jojo: Other reasons, in no particular order:
The Predictamancers are screening him, he's got that staff, and I can no longer fight this turn.

Abner Washboard: And he's a warlord...

Jojo: And he's a warlord.
Combat's his bag, not ours.

Dove: Then what can we do?

Jojo: Our specialties, of course. Stirring up trouble, roping a dope. You dodgers work the crowd.
Get 'em in a real lather.
Maybe they'll shoot him.

Jojo: We might not hook this mark.
We knew he was slippery.
But I got a gaff in mind, for when everybody's heading for the exits.
