Hilarious Skyrim Quotes

“Never Should’ve Come Here!”

A line that’s used way too often by your victims regardless of the circumstances. You could sneak your way into their lair and slit their throat, dealing 6x stealth damage, and they’ll still say this. Basically, all your victims or enemies in Skyrim turn into cranky old men who want you off their yard as soon as they see you.

That, or they could be referring to themselves sometimes as they also say this line whenever they’re walking down the road and happen to bump into you, with their weapon drawn. Really, though, you never should have come here.

“Those Warriors From Hammerfell? They’ve Got Curved Swords. Curved. Swords.”

A guard’s life in Skyrim can be dull and monotonous… even though there’s always action to be found due to wars and dragons. Anyway, one of their favorite past times is idle gossip. Their favorite topic? Warriors from Hammerfell, they got curved swords, you see, something rare and exotic in Skyrim… or any other province in Tamriel.

It can be rather puzzling as to why Nord guards would be curious about the curvature of swords. However, those warriors from Hammerfell are definitely asking for attention the way they dangle their curved swords around their hips.

“You’ll Make A Fine Rug, Cat!”

Apart from the “never should have come here!” threat from hostile NPCs, they can get creative depending on your character’s race. If you happen to be a Khajiit, for example, they give you this laughably cruel taunt.

As it is, the Khajiit are the joke race of Tamriel because the other races regard them as compulsive thieves. Even their home province is called Elsweyr. How do you take that seriously? In any case, it’s a fitting threat against a Khajiit, given how they always scam you wherever they are.

“I Used To Be An Adventurer Like You, Then I Took An Arrow In The Knee”

There it is, the line that launched a thousand memes. There’s no other quote in Skyrim more memorable or iconic than this one. It seems every guard you meet used to be an adventurer like you, then they took arrows in the knee and were relegated to guard duty.

They’ll also explicitly say it to you as a conversation starter without you even asking why they became a guard. In their defense, though, being an adventurer was probably preferable than having to talk about the “curved swords” of the warriors of Hammerfell as their past time or taking care of sweetroll thefts.

“Do You Get To The Cloud District Very Often? Oh, What Am I Saying, Of Course You Don’t.”

This line in itself isn’t groundbreaking at all, it’s what happens afterward to the person who says this that’s entertaining. You see, this line is something only a condescending dead man utters. As such, the only appropriate reply to him would be an ax blade to his bald forehead or a level 100 Destruction skill lightning bolt to his groin area.

Absolutely no should boast to you about their highbrow escapades to the Cloud District, regardless of how often it is. By the way, Cloud District is merely the area of Dragonsreach in Whiterun. You’ve been there countless times even, so it’s nothing special. Feel free to be a jerk to anyone about how cultured and high-profile you are since you actually get to the Cloud District very often.
