"Why do you disturb us?” — woman ghost [1]
"She is somewhat territorial, I fear," the head said, looking sympathetic. "We've been here such a long time, y'see. This land belonged to my family long before they built a theatre on it, and it sustains us." He gave me a cheerful leer. " 'Tis more fun these days. The demmed Roundheads closed all the theatres, as well as the pubs, the whorehouses, and all besides that wasn't a church. They even prohibited sports on Sunday! They were kind enough to behead me before I had to live through that. But we triumphed in the end, didn't we?” — Bearded Head ghost [1]
"Really, I want to leave, but I can't yet. Hopefully, this won't take long.” ... "The other said the same," she intoned, her dark hair starting to blow gently about her face as her power rose. "But after poisoning the wine, she did not go. Now you are here. This must stop.”, "You and the other woman are the threat. You must leave.” — Cassie and woman ghost [1]
