"Again? Trying to calculate amino acid decay rates."
"You said you would once the tests were done."
”Oh, better to die to a thresher maw, with shotgun-blasting-roaring raw, than to play ambassadorial games, with the blood of Shiagur in her veins. Off to fight, since Turians can’t, with diplomats instead of a krantt. But she’ll be true to Tuchanka’s dream, and live and die a Krogan queen! For she is the Krogan queen! Hurrah, hurrah for the Krogan queen! And it is, it is, a glorious thing to be the Krogan queen! Still prefer patter songs.”
"Of course. I really had to twist your arm."
favorite mass effect relationships » Shepard & Anderson friendship"There’s been a lot written about the Commander, but most if it isn’t true. People are quick to judge. They don’t know the whole story. I don’t even know the whole story. But I know the woman. Worked with her, fought with her. Trust her with my life. Shepard’s had some rough patches. Who of us hasn’t. She’s been forced to fight a lot of battles alone. God only knows how she got out of some of that. Makes your head spin. Thing is, you never heard a complaint. Never once got, ‘No, sir. I can’t do that.’ She never hesitated. Few people know what Shepard’s been through. I’d like to think I come pretty close. And I worry sometimes she forgets: there’s a whole bunch of people who lose sleep over her getting back home. Maybe it doesn’t need to be said. Maybe we’re too dumb to say it. Soldiers like the Commander are rare. Women like Shepard…even more rare."

"I surrendered it the day I became a shaman of the female clan. I belong to my sisters now. But perhaps, one day when this is over, you can know it."
favorite mass effect relationships » Shepard & Thane friendship"Kolyat? There’s something I don’t understand. His last moments were those of a hero. Why pray for salvation?"
"The prayer was not for him, Commander. He has already asked forgiveness for the lives he has taken. His wish was for you."

"The psychotic biotic!"
"I will destroy you!"
"Drink your juice, Rodriguez. You couldn’t destroy wet tissue paper."
It’s eyes were almost like, reptilian. But there was something about them. You know when you see, like, a friend in a Halloween mask, but all you can actually see are their eyes and you feel like you know ‘em but you just can’t figure out who it is?
