  • Quotes

    • (After battling Lucian Anderson to a a draw in the Joust)
      Mike: Titan. You're the Ayatollah of Smack-oli. You've hit this guy with everything but the kitchen sink and he didn't drop!
      Titan: I hate this man. He makes me work too hard. (Patting Lucian's chest) He's a good competitor.
      Mike: He's a great competitor. Lucian, you've proved that old adage that it can be correct sometimes. Sometimes the best offense is a good defense.
      Lucian: He caught me with a couple of shots that I thought I was just gonna fall down. But I kept my feet under me and I'm still standing.
