Li'l Beefy: How did you become King of the Faerie?!

Dr Quickly: Helping out!!

Dr Quickly: When I was your age I set out, like you, to find the secret Faerie Kingdom spoken of in my most treasured tales.

Dr Quickly: Deep under the city, a perilous journey... as you well know!

Dr Quickly: My crown does weigh heavy on my aged head... perhaps...

Li'l Beefy: In the name of the Faerie King, I will defeat you, beast!
