Scheherezade: Death comes in many shapes and disguises.
Scheherezade: He said the world was an inferno full of darkness and evil, and that there were only two ways of dealing with it. The first was easy and wrong: to accept it and become part of it. The second way was harder and right: you fight it, and recognize those who aren't evil, and help them endure.
Princess Zobiede's father: It is an insult to my daughter and worse, to me! You stink! Suitor: So would you, your highness, if you spent the evening in the privy.
Scheherezade: Is this the time for stories? Storyteller: It's the perfect time! Stories show us how to win, and in your case: defeat death.
Aladdin: (making a wish) How about some sort of flying machine? Genie of the Lamp: Flying machine? So we could fly around the world? And have drinks? And people could serve us peanuts? You'd better stick with the money.
Sultan Schariar: It's time to take responsibility for your actions, brother... and die!
Storyteller: You must learn how to leave your audience in suspense.
Aladdin: Are you like the Genie of the Ring? Genie of the Lamp: Like the Genie of the Ring?... I, who opposed the will of Heaven? NEVER! Aladdin: So you're not related then? Genie of the Lamp: No! Ohhh, I don't know... the tests were inconclusive...
Scheherezade: (narrating) The storyteller always said, "Stories can save us." I guess what he meant was... they can save us! If we use our imagination.
Scheherezade: (Schariar has drawn a sword and hacked the pillows to shreds around her) Are you all right? Can I do anything for you? Sultan Schariar: I just missed *killing* you, and you ask if there's anything you can do for *me*?
Demon's Wife: And now, you must make love to me. If you don't, I'll scream, and my husband will rip your head off.
Scheherezade: (narrating) The trial of Jerome Gribben was the social event of the season. The judge in the case was the venerable Judge Zadic. Judge Zadic was totally incompetent but being a Judge nobody had noticed.
Storyteller: You are starting your story again; you have to hook your audience again.
Sultan Schariar: You saved me. Why did you do it? Scheherezade: Because I loved you. Sultan Schariar: Is that the real reason? Scheherezade: (She smiles) It'll have to do, until... (Schariar kisses her)
Storyteller: Here again, milady? Scheherezade: These people sit for hours, just listening. Scheherezade: It's a miracle. Storyteller: People need stories, more than bread, itself. Storyteller: They teach us how to live, and why.
