Other interactions

  • When the player first talks to Hadrian, he may mistake the player for a heckler Garret hired to "spice up" the show. The player can either ask why he's so rude or insult him back, which he will compliment the player on.

Notable quotes

  • "It's great to be up here, looking down at all your smiling faces. That won't last long."
  • "If you had your life to live over again, let me make a suggestion: Play in traffic."
  • "Somebody told me the other day you were bright - I wasn't sure if he meant smart, or radioactive."
  • "Hey, not bad! Your timing's terrible and you got no style, but you might make it as a professional heckler."
  • "Sister, you look tough enough to drink a pint of glowing water. Why don't you do us all a favor and try it?"
