    I just got a news tip but I can't tell you about it! You'll just have to read about it later.
  • Social talk If you want to know the latest happenings in Portia, just check out the Portia Times.
  • Social talk I just got a news tip! I can't tell you what it is yet, so you'll just have to read about it later.
  • Social talk Erwa has me running errands for him today! Hmm, where can I find some Red Tea?
  • Social talk I'm still getting used to how quiet it is in Portia.. Did you find it difficult when you moved here?
  • Social talk I overheard someone saying that Gust puts Honeybee Wax in his hair. That's why it's so shiny!
  • Social talk I saw Merlin savaging through some old scraps of technology by the Research Center. What is she building this time?
  • Social talk Have you seen a Mystery Man around town? I've heard people say he sells rare and beautiful items. I wonder if he'll agree to an interview?

Start
  • Social talk You better be careful, I'll show no mercy.
  • Social talk Let me show you my full power!
  • Social talk Alright, let's go! Bring it!
  • Social talk Come on, let's see what you got!
  • Social talk Challenging me? I'm game!
  • Social talk Okay...let's start!
  • Social talk I admire your courage! Fine, I'll play with you.
  • Social talk Already starting? I was going to do some stretching.
  • Social talk Let's rumble!
Win
  • Social talk Hahah, What do you think of me now?
  • Social talk You're not hurt are you? Don't worry about it, practice makes perfect.
  • Social talk Haha, that was super fun! You are pretty good!
  • Social talk Perfection!
  • Social talk Of course I was going to win! You underestimated me!
  • Social talk You're far too weak.
  • Social talk Humph, go home and practice more.
  • Social talk Alright, I win!
  • Social talk So you're only so-so.
Lose
  • Social talk Ah, I got some bruises from that.
  • Social talk Never imagined I could lose.
  • Social talk Oh, defeat...
  • Social talk I'm getting a little tired...
  • Social talk You are the most powerful opponent I've ever met!
  • Social talk I lost...
  • Social talk Ah, ow, ow, ow!
  • Social talk Why are you so strong?
  • Social talk I'm going for the win next time.
  • Social talk You won, be proud of it!
  • Social talk Mercy, mercy!
  • Social talk What a pity! I will not lose next time!

Talk about favorite foods
  • Social talk I could always go for some ice cream.
  • Social talk I can't stand uncooked vegetables, no salads for me.
Ask about work
  • Social talk (Being a reporter must be tough!) Yes it is! But I wouldn't have it any other way. It's my trial by fire, hahaha!
  • Social talk (Are there any news stories around here?) There's always news stories around, you just have to know where to look. News stories don't always have to be major, they just have to matter. That's what I think, anyway.
Casual talk
  • Social talk I have to report in with our HQ in Atara once in a while, but they don't send me to cover anything out there, so I'm stuck in Portia.
Compliment
  • (You seem to be a go-getter.)
    • Social talk This is my first job, so I'm trying to impress everybody. Out to prove myself, ya know?
  • (Thanks for bringing us the news!)
    • Social talk No prob. The coverage out here in Portia isn't that great, since it's so far from the center of power. I'm gonna change that!

Friend
  • Social talk I think Mayor Gale is doing great, but I'm not sure he's got what it takes to transform Portia. The Mayor of Atara is a lot, uh, meaner...but he gets the job done.
  • Social talk I sent a letter to my family back in Atara today. They asked if I'd made any friends here, so I told them a bit about you! Hopefully, one day, they'll come and visit...
  • Social talk There's some really scary stuff going on in the world, but it's even scarier when people don't know about it. I've got to make sure the people of Portia stay informed!

Sweetheart
  • Social talk At first I thought being in Portia was a punishment from the Atara Times. I couldn't stand being away from my home. But you've changed that.
  • Social talk Y'know, if you ever give up building and crafting, you should totally be a beauty model. I have to stop myself from taking out my camera every time I see you!
  • Social talk You and me should run away, and go on amazing adventures together! Oh, alright, I'll go to work now. But it's a good idea!
  • Social talk I really think you've transformed Portia into a newer, better town. And you've transformed me into a newer, better girl!
Spouse
  • Social talk I tried writing down how much I love you, but my typewriter ran out of paper before I could finish. I guess I'm going to the store on my break today...
  • Social talk Make sure to gear up before you go out adventuring, okay? I'll be so mad if you get hurt out there!
  • Social talk Before we got married, I used to have dreams about exploring the world, writing amazing stories, taking beautiful photographs. I still get them - but now you're there by my side.
  • Social talk We should travel to Atara one day. You can meet my parents, they'll love you. Not as much as I do, because that's totally impossible. But it'll be close.
  • Social talk Imagine if you never came to Portia. Would it look the same? Would I still be here? It's weird to think about, huh?
  • Social talk I know I joke a lot, but I do really love you. You're like my muse. One look at you, and I want to write pages and pages!
Unhappy
  • Social talk Hey! I have this idea for a new story and...oh, whatever. You don't care, do you?
  • Social talk I'm thinking about spending more time at the office...you don't need me around here.
  • Social talk I wonder what's happening in Atara right now? Maybe I should give up and move back...

Nemesis
  • Social talk The Atara Times told me that Portia was filled with boring nobodies. I guess in your case they were right.
  • Social talk Ugh. I'm not wasting my words on you.
  • Social talk Here's a new headline: "Don't talk to me!"
  • Social talk Why did you stop me? I have important things to do!

Day of the Bright Sun
  • Social talk This holiday makes me feel all warm inside. I think we need more of these in today's world.
  • Social talk I've been practicing all year for this event. I bet I can run faster than you!
Winter Solstice
  • Social talk I should be interviewing people and taking notes today...but my poor stomach just wants to eat!

Spring
  • Social talk Spring is here! I wonder what stories this season will bring...
  • Social talk Look at all these lovely flowers- A-achoooo! Ugh, I sneezed all over my notes!
  • Social talk Portia looks pretty good in the Spring, maybe it's not too bad here...
Summer
  • Social talk Phew! It's hard to run around in this heat, but I ain't gonna stop!
  • Social talk Some people call my hat silly, but they're the ones getting sunburnt faces, hee hee!
  • Social talk News doesn't take a summer break, and neither do I!
Autumn
  • Social talk Everything changes in the Autumn...hey, that gives me an idea for a news story!
  • Social talk Already Autumn, huh? This year is running by as fast as me!
  • Social talk ...Maybe I'll have my lunch break outside in the Autumn breeze.
Winter
  • Social talk Feeling chilly, builder? Maybe I should write an article on staying warm in Winter!
  • Social talk The office gets really cold this time of year. We don't even have the funding to buy a heater...
  • Social talk Think of all the incredible stories from this year...are you ready to make some more?
Rain
  • Social talk All this rain is collecting in my hat...I'm too nervous to take it off.
Snow
  • Social talk This poncho really saves my hide when it snows. I'm so snuggly and warm!
