Broken Sword: The Shadow Of The Templars

[First lines]
George Stobbart: [narrating] Paris in the fall, the last months of the year, at the end of the millenium. The city holds many memories for me, of cafes, of music, of love, and of death.

George Stobbart: Woah - don't shoot! I'm innocent! I'm an American!
Moue: Can't make up your mind, huh?

First time George visits Nicole in her apartment:

George Stobbart: You speak very good English for a French girl...
Nicole Collard: Thanks. You speak very good English for an American.

George Stobbart: Let's just say I'm working in the interests of truth and justice.
Todryk: Ah, Thank God, I thought you were the police.

George Stobbart: How did you and Rosso arrive at the scene so quickly? Was it a tip-off?
Moue: Inspector Rosso's sources are a mystery to me, m'sieur. Some say, he has made a pact with the devil.
George Stobbart: What do you think?
Moue: I think, he IS the devil.

Moue: ...And don't cross the road until the little man shows green.
George Stobbart: Great advice.

Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror

George Stobbart: Sometimes, I got the feeling that communication with Pearl was like sending signals out into space. Maybe, if you waited long enough, you'd get an intelligent answer back... but it was a long shot.

George Stobbart: [after showing dead worm to cat] The cat looked to me as if to say "Why have you brought a dead worm halfway around the world to me"?
George Stobbart: I honestly didn't have an answer.

George Stobbart: I may not be making millions of dollars and I may not have thousands of nubile if uncritical young women lusting for my body but I've got something you haven't... this small piece of coal.

Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon

Col. Butley: Are you aware of the annual Glastonbury Popular Music Festival?
George: The Glastonbury Popular Music Festival? Hmm, that's one of the most popular music festivals on the Popular Music Festival calendar!

Nico: Um, George, when I first knew you that would have been no problem.
George: Guess I must be carrying a little more muscle, huh?
Nico: Yeah. The fat kind.
George Stobbart: [talking about a machine that produces holy wafers] These cutters... What precisely is your cut to death ratio?
Sister Serena: What?
George Stobbart: The relationship between cutter operation aggregates and notifiable fatalities.
Sister Serena: Oh. Er...
George Stobbart: Are the cutters safe?
Sister Serena: Oh yes. They're safe.
George Stobbart: They're safe?
Sister Serena: Very safe.
George Stobbart: Are they safe?
Sister Serena: Um... Well... No?
George Stobbart: No?
Sister Serena: No. They are not safe.
George Stobbart: They are not safe?
Sister Serena: No. They're dangerous.
George Stobbart: Dangerous?
Sister Serena: Very dangerous.
George Stobbart: So they're not safe?
Sister Serena: No, they are not safe. Not safe at all.
George Stobbart: I see. But are they... safe?
Sister Serena: Yes. They are very safe.
George Stobbart: They are safe?
Sister Serena: Oh yes. Very, very safe.
George Stobbart: Good. Simple question. Simple answer. That's all I needed.
