Morrigan: We now have a dog and Alistair is still the dumbest one in the party.
Oghren: Aye. I've tried twenty-seven different types of ale and learned I'm just the right height to give a human girl a good time. That doesn't make me a good man.
Teyrn Loghain Mac Tir: Daughters never grow up, Anora. They remain six years old with pigtails and skinned knees forever.
Leliana: I am a woman and I reserve the right to be inconsistent!
Shale: The darkspawn are an evil that must be destroyed, it's true. Though not as evil as the birds... damnable feathered fiends!
Sten: I am a simple creature. I like swords, I follow orders. What else is there to be puzzled by?
Duncan: Be careful what you wish for. Power is treacherous. I have seen many people--great leaders--consumed by it.
Leliana: You aren't all stone, Shale. There is a person inside of you.

Alistair: Join us, brothers and sisters. Join us in the shadows where we stand vigilant. Join us as we carry the duty that cannot be forsworn. And should you perish, know that your sacrifice will not be forgotten... and that one day, we shall join you.
Zevran: Can you smell that? Like rotting flesh. Just like back in Antiva City. Now if only you could find me a prostitute or two, a bowl of fish chowder and a corrupt politician, I'd really feel like I was home!
Wynne: But why should you fear death if you are happy with the life you have led, if you can look back on everything and say, 'Yes, I am content. It is enough.'
Connection to Other Media
One of the many Codex entries on the world of Fereldan contained in the game is a joking homage to Dr. Seuss' classic "Green Eggs and Ham" poem, focused on the Dwarven delicacy of Nugs and is penned by a certain "Paragon Seuss".
A Dwarven poem found in the Dead Trenches references Shepard's name, the title itself, and Mass Effect's notoriously slow elevator rides.
At one point in the game Sten can be quoted, "Where is the cake? I was told there would be cake. The cake is a lie." which is a direct reference to GLaDoS from Portal.
