Fighter So now what?
Black Mage We run like scared little forest elves, that's what!
Fighter Run? Run?! We can't run! Not after all that was said about your magic powers!
Black Mage And who's fault is that?
Fighter Now is not the time to point fingers.
Black Mage Uh-huh.
Monsters We ain't got all day, y'know.
Black Mage Sorry guys, just one second.
Monsters Make it quick.
Fighter Those monsters are gonna eat us alive!
Monsters Human flesh? Raw?

Oh heavens no.

How barbaric!

What does he think we are, monsters?

The two parties stand in silence.
Monsters Well, yeah. We are monsters, but we're not monsters about it.

Enough talk. Attack!

Fighter Mage, you've got to think of something!
Black Mage I have, Fighter. I have.
