"You're a fool, and stupid too!"
« on: June 27, 2015, 08:08:21 PM »
... and other pretty bad quotes from Warriors.


My personal favorite is Hawkfrost's: "Then you're a fool," Hawkfrost sneered. "And stupid too."
Hawkfrost, honey, you don't need to be redundant. :P

What's your favorite not-so-hot line from this cat book series we've come to know and love? It can be in narration or a line of dialogue.

Everyone knows what I'll say.

"Squirrelpaw, I want you to go out with Thornclaw."

This is from like... Midnight or something. I can't even remember, but it's still funny to this day...and taken out of context, it's even worse.

The game is on again- a lover or a friend?

I like the Hawkfrost and Leafpool ones already mentioned. 

This one isn't from the series proper, but from the play "Brightspirit's Mercy":
Lionblaze: "Yay! ThunderClan's the best! We win again!"

It's been a long time since I've given any of the books a proper reread but that Hawkfrost quote has stuck in my mind for years. It's just so silly and I love it.

"Swiftpaw sometimes picked up discontented rumblings from his mentor, Longtail, who had once been a close ally of Tigerclaw, but on this occasion he seemed to be trying to make a joke." - A Dangerous Path, pg. 42

That might be one of the most convoluted lines I've seen in Warriors.

Cloudtail in A Dangerous Path:

"Lostface!" Cloudtail spat suddenly. The venom in his voice startled Fireheart. "I hate that name," he hissed. "What right does Bluestar have to remind her of what happened every time a cat speaks to her? Well, I'm not going to use it again.  And if Bluestar objects, she can...she can go and eat snails!"


"Go and eat snails" is just so random and doesn't sound as fierce as the rest of his dialogue there.

I forgot that line even existed oh my god.

And this gem from Fire and Ice proves Graystripe is just a giant kitten:
----
Cinderpaw raced down the slope, across the hollow, and up to Fireheart's side, sending fallen leaves flying everywhere.

Graystripe leaped up and caught one as it drifted past his nose. He pinned it to the ground with a purr of satisfaction and saw Brackenpaw staring at him. "Er, never miss a chance to practice your hunting skills." Graystripe told him quickly.

I actually legitimately thought his name was Dirtstripe, as that was the first quote I was introduced to the series with.

Wasn't there another line where they were talking about Spottedleaf being young and pretty, and then (I think it might have been Graypaw/stripe) said Darkstripe was neither? Forgetting the exact context but man they were some snarky apprentices

@Darkforestwarrior yes I think there is!
Right after Firepaw gets his name Greypaw starts showing him around, and describes Spottedleaf as "She's our medicine cat. Not bad-looking either. Younger and a lot prettier than most--" blah blah Darkstripe shows up and starts complaining about Firepaw, then when Darkstripe walks away "Now Darkstripe," Greypaw hissed to Firepaw under his breath, "is neither young, not pretty."

Also the most awkward line in Into the wild imo is when Spottedleaf dies Firepaw goes to share tongues with her one last time and he goes --
"Goodbye, my sweet Spottedleaf."
