“Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. If you don’t take it out and use it, it’s going to rust.” — General Katana.

“Nicely played, MacLeod, but the game’s not over yet.” — General Katana.

“Enough of this useless banter, I will be on my way and leave you to converse with your skull. Farewell, dear shithead, farewell.” — Ramírez.

“Most people have a full measure of life, and most people just watch it slowly drip away. But if you can summon it all up at one time, in one place, you can accomplish something glorious.” — Ramírez.

“Remember, Highlander, you’ve both still got your full measure of life. Use it well, and your future will be glorious.” — Ramírez.
