  • Quotes

    • (They find a cabin by the lake. Norman steps through the open door and is disgusted by what he sees. He steps out and shuts the door behind him.)
      Max: What is it Normie?
      Norman: You don't want to see this Mighty One...
      Max: Hey man, I've seen violence on TV and in the movies!
      Virgil: No! This is not the movies, Mighty One! This is real, and real violence has real consequences!
      Norman: Yes, we're wasting time...

    • Max: So, end of Lockjaw, end of story, right?
      Virgil: Lockyar, and neither he nor the story was ended.
      Norman: He came back.
      Max: Woo and I bet he was peed off…
      Virgil: Indeed. It was five hundred years ago in these very woods, Norman and I managed once again to defeat him. We hid his axe and his key and imprisoned him in one of the immortal trees, destined to stand for all eternity.
      Norman: But someone cut it down...

    • (Felix and Max are looking at a poster with Max, Norman and Virgil on it. It reads "Cap Bearer Productions in association with Mighty One Entertainment present 'PORTAL' Starring VIRGIL, NORMAN and introducing MAX. Produced by Virgil, Directed by Virgil and Financed by Virgil. NOW SHOWING!")
      Felix: I'll wait until this one's out on tape.
