He of the Foot: Kill me if you must, Van Winkle.
Rip Van Winkle: You don't remember? 200 years ago...you killed my father.
He of the Foot: No!
Rip Van Winkle: Now look at you. Just another filthy bigfoot stalking the back alleys of my city.
He of the Foot: It wasn't me. It was...Blackfoot.
Rip Van Winkle: Why should I believe you, a lying old bigfoot?
He of the Foot: Because I can take you to another. Another...Van Winkle.
Annabelle Van Winkle: You see them too? How??
Rip Van Winkle: I'll explain later! Hand me that crossbow!
Annabelle Van Winkle: Explain now!
Rip Van Winkle: I'm your great-great-great- (shoots a Russian vampire mobster in the heart with the crossbow) great-great-great-great-great-grandfather.
Annabelle Van Winkle: And I thought you were trying to pick me up.
Rip Van Winkle: I work alone. (Frags a dark bigfoot with an incendiary grenade.)
Annabelle Van Winkle: If this Blackfoot has taken over the bigfoots and made an alliance with the Russian vampires, there's only one faction left that might help us.

Rip Van Winkle: Your people aren't humans. No!
Annabelle Van Winkle: Rip...
Rip Van Winkle: No! I will never make a deal with the elves.
Lord Meddowych: You are the first human to be admitted to the fairy court in over a thousand years. You should feel honored.
Rip Van Winkle: You should feel honored I haven't taken out my sword. It's met a lot of elves.

It did not look all that different from any other pebble, and certainly nothing like a coin. ‘What manner of coin has no head or tail, and bears no seal or flag? Who backs this toad coin, the toad bank? The toad treasury!?’ The traveler laughed, but the toads croaked sternly back at him.
