They're Bujold novels, so even in the middle of horrible circumstances someone is bound to make a wise crack.

The Curse of Chalion

  • Dondo dy Journal's funeral. The Daughter of Spring made it clear how well he served her as the Holy General of her order, and it went downhill from there.
  • "Rise and ride, Captain Sunshine!"
  • "You're her reward!"
  • After being run through the belly with the Archchancellor's sword, Cazaril calmly asks to see Betriz before they remove it.

 "You can't just sit there with a sword in your gut"

(reasonably) "Well I surely cannot move."

Paladin Of Souls

  • Liss' complete inability to do a Lady's hair properly, but when prompted she rattles off a dozen ways to do up a horse's mane.
  • Having just been rescued after two days and 100 miles of uncomfortable captivity, Ista has some simple requests:

 Ista: "I want... a piece of bread and a bedroll."

Ferda: "This rough camp is no place for your repose-"

Ista: "Any bread. Any bedroll."

Ferda: "There may be some women I can find for your attendants, but they are not what you are used to-"

Ista: "Your bedroll would do."

Ferda: "Royina, I-"

Ista: "If you do not give me a bedroll at once, I am going to sit down on the ground right here and start to cry. Now."

  • "I do not have the energy to stand up, or get to my feet for that matter."
