1. Firstly this is my first FAQ (as you can probably tell), well my first 
publicly available FAQ anyway, so I hope you can be patient with some of my 
backwards ways. Also this FAQ was written from the PAL version of the game, I'm 
not sure how quotes differ in the original, American or International versions, 
if at all. I first decided to write this FAQ because Square, in their infinite 
wisdom, (just joshing, I love ya really) decided to make the majority of in 
battle quotes (including all magic and most skills) only be said once by any one 
character, and then never again. This I do not understand, I mean in the Config 
Menu there is an option to make Aeon sequences long or short, how hard would it 
be to make an option for quotes; either ONCE or ALWAYS? But enough of my 
whining. Also I should mention that these quotes are only quotes that I 
personally came across, there must be many, many more that I did not discover 
so, if anybody finds anymore you can e-mail them to me and credit will be given. 
Just one last thing, believe it or not there are some SPOILERS in this FAQ, 
because some quotes are only said after certain events, which I will be 
mentioning, or in response to certain monsters, which I will also be mentioning.

2. Firstly, the in game quotes I am talking about are only non-story related. 
This means these quotes only appear in the centre of the screen, in a slightly 
larger font than usual. (Disclaimer: there may be exceptions, don't e-mail me 
about them.) So this does not include any information bearing quotes or Trigger 
Command quotes; 

i.e. at the start of the game there are quotes which help explain certain 
aspects of the game:

Tidus attacks a monster resistant to physical attacks;
	Wakka: Leave that one to Lu.
	Lulu: Didn't I just tell you? You need magic to harm that one.

Or for the trigger command - Talk in the battle against Seymour;

	Tidus: I knew you were bad news the first time I met you.
	Seymour: Oh, my sincerest apologies.
	Tidus: Seymour!

Or if you Summon Anima in the final battle against Seymour;

	Seymour: You would oppose me too? So be it!

None of these quotes will be mentioned (apart from here, of course). Other 
quotes that won't be mentioned are quotes said that don't even bring up a text 
box, such as Auron's trademark 'ENOUGH' or 'FAREWELL' when he kills a fiend. 
Also I apologise for any punctuation or spelling errors, especially when the 
characters let off a squeal, it's difficult to count and write down the specific 
numbers of letters in that particular scream i.e. when a character says 

Specifics I have noticed about in battle quotes:
1. They usually only appear once, and this is the first time you use the ability 
that gives the quote, grrrrr!
2. Specific characters when paired together during a certain battle sometimes 
reply to each others quotes.
3. Most Overdrive quotes are unspecific to the overdrive actually performed 
(except for Kimahri's overdrives). i.e. Tidus' overdrives are all swordplay's, 
however, using one swordplay such as Spiral Cut over another, such as Energy 
Rain, does not affect the quote said. However, since I'm extremely pedantic, I 
have mentioned which overdrive I used in order to gain the quote.
4. If you use an ability (that would otherwise demand a quote) for the first 
time during a boss battle, no quote is said, and it does not count as having 
used that ability (i.e. if you then fight a normal battle and use the ability 
again, for which it would be at least the second time in total that you use that 
ability, then a quote is still said).

All white magic, black magic, skill, special, overdrive or summon quotes shall 
appear in blue.

Other than the type of quotes listed above these are the only other types of 
quotes in the game, and thus the only other types of quotes I shall be 

 1. Start; - this quote occurs at the start of the battle, before any action is 
taken either by the party or the enemy.
 2. ......... enters; - this quote is said when the character in question enters 
the battle screen by using the L1 button to switch between characters.
 3. ......... is revived; - this quote is said after the character in question 
is revived from KO status by using a Phoenix Down.
 4. ......... wins the battle; - this quote is said when the character in 
question deals the final blow to the last fiend on the battlefield, in effect, 
winning the battle (duh.)
 5. End; - this quote is said at the end of the battle.

Any quotes that involve banter between two characters appears in the character 
section of the character who that quote relates to, or whoever speaks first.

4. Credits

Well I'd just like to say thanks to the good people at Squaresoft for making yet 
another absolutely superb game, perhaps the best of the series? But not just for 
making Final Fantasy X but for all the Final Fantasy games, in fact all their 
I'd also like to thank my brother and sister, we've always supported each other 
through the bad times and without them, I probably wouldn't be here today.
Lastly I'd like to thank my Dad, may he rest in peace, for buying me my 
PlayStation and my first Final Fantasy game, without which I wouldn't have 
become so obsessed by these brilliant games.
