"I can feel the excitement sizzling below us, floating up through the floor boards."
"The common room is below an entirely different part of the building."
"I can hear the crowd murmuring in anticipation."
"Word of mouth has been spreading through the region. They've heard about us."
"About how we were run out of the last town after you seduced that farmer's daughter?"

"My fingers bled for days."
"And how our comic songs made the brokenhearted Princess Kana laugh for the first time in years."
"After which you promptly broke her heart again."
"They've heard the tale of my daring escape from the ravening hordes of the Formori through the power of music."
"A tale that changes every time you tell it."
"They're ready for us. They're panting for us. And we're about to give them a performance like no other."
"You are certainly a... unique performer."
"Come, Khrusostom, let us entertain!"
"I follow where you lead, Bulsara."
