Paper Mario: Color Splash[edit]

  • "OW! What was that for?"
  • "How would you like it if I whacked you with a hammer while you were sleeping?"
  • "A paint can? You think I'm just some regular paint can?!"
  • "Alright, you don't look like you're from around here, so I'll forgive that comment."
  • "But I am SO much more than a regular paint can!"
  • "Anyway, now that I'm awake, you wanna grab a burger or something? Your treat."
  • "That didn't sound good!"
  • "What are you waiting for, Mario? Use those Battle Cards on this Slurp Guy!"
  • "Here he comes!"
  • "HOLD IT!"
  • "Do you even have any paint, Mario?"
  • "You know... paint! That colorful stuff coursing through our bodies? No?"
  • "What are we gonna do? There's no paint around here!"
  • "Argh! There's no other choice."
  • "Mario, you're going to have to wring me out."
  • "Just press A Button to give me a squeeze. Don't be shy now."
  • "Whooo... I'm so light and airy! Is this what you paperfolk feel like all the time?"
  • "All right, enough flapping in the wind!"
  • "The paint you just absorbed is basically my blood, sweat, and tears. You'll have time to shower later."
  • "Use that paint to power up those Battle Cards your friend gave you."
  • "And then use the Battle Cards to plaster this introverted assassin!"
  • "No, that's definitely NOT cool! And since when are there three of you?"
  • "Whatever... We've got cards, we've got paint..."
  • "YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO, MARIO!"
  • "You have no idea what to do, do you?"
  • "No worries, Uncle Huey's here to give you a primer!"
  • "MAN, I'M STARVING! How about that burger?!"
  • "Huh? Don't worry about Toad there. He'll be fine."
  • "Walk it off, bud!"
  • "Hmm... Well, maybe he's in rougher shape than I thought."
  • "But no worries–he just needs a new fresh coat of paint, and he'll be as good as new."
  • "No, ma'am–he'll be the same Toad he's always been. That's the power of paint!"
  • "You see, paint isn't just for powering up Battle Cards..."
  • "Paint adds beauty and life to the world!"
  • "So I've taken the liberty of loading up your hammer with all the colors of the rainbow."
  • "Go on–press X Button to give it a swing! Aim for your pasty friend there."
  • "See? That's the power of paint!"
  • "Now, I've got to warn you. I gave you everything I've got, but it won't last forever."
  • "If you want to keep on painting the world around you, you're going to have to resupply from time to time."
  • "Easy. Remember that fountain in the center of town? You know, the one where I was taking a nap?"
  • "Well, it's the prime source of paint for ALL of Prism Island."
  • "We've got six Big Paint Stars hooked up to the thing, and they'll put out as much paint as you like."
  • "Plus, I mean... paint nearly flies out of everything around here."
  • "Try hitting stuff with your hammer. You'll see what I mean."
  • "Bahaha! Dry?! Good one, Toad! Mario, you might wanna give this guy another whack with that hammer."
  • "I mean... dry?! Please. Our Big Paint Stars could never run dry. C'mon, I'll show you."
  • "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAUGHUUGH! My precious Big Paint Stars. They're gone... All gone!"
  • "It's no use..."
  • "They're gone... all gone!"
  • "Port Prisma without Big Paint Stars is like... like... a tuna-fish sandwich without ketchup! *sob*"
  • "WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! *sniff* *sniff*"
  • "Wait a second... What's that smell? It smells like... a Paint Star!"
  • "I knew it!"
  • "Guys, look up there! It's one of our Big Paint Stars!"
  • "Oh, isn't it glorious!"
  • "OK! Princess... Mario... Toad... you guys CAN help me after all!"
  • "Help me recover that Big Paint Star!"
  • "I mean, I did basically sacrifice my lifeblood to get you out of that pickle back there..."
  • "Mr. Can is my father. You can call me Huey!"
  • "Thanks for the help, guys. It means a lot."
  • "All right. Let's go get that Big Paint Star, shall we?"
  • "Don't mind me. I'll just tuck myself in your pocket!"
  • "If you wanna chat, just press +Control Pad up to summon me. It's easier and less painful than hitting me with a hammer."
  • "I know this town like the back of my can, so don't hesitate to ask me for advice if you get lost."
  • "Yes, a bridge expert would be nice right about now. Don't we have one here in Port Prisma?"
  • "Somewhere? Something? I thought you said you were an expert on bridge experts!"
  • "Never mind. I guess we'll have to forget about the bridge for now."
  • "Hey, just a quick reminder. If you're lost or not sure what to do, just press +Control Pad up to talk to me."
  • "This is a Save Block. Hit it to save your progress."
  • "Look at you, Mr. Fix It! This door's as good as new! It should open right up now."
  • "Colorless objects won't work right until you restore their color, so don't be stingy with that paint hammer!"
  • "Wait... what's going on here?"
  • "Usually there's water flowing here, making the wheel spin around and look super cool."
  • "Now it's just sitting there looking moderately cool. That's not cool enough!"
  • "Hey, remember that time I told you that you can press +Control Pad up to talk to me? That was awesome."
  • "Sorry, it's just really lonely in your pocket."
  • "Hey, Mario! You called?"
  • "Let's repaint that Toad on the bench over there. Maybe he can help us out."
  • "Look at that! He's so focused on stealing paint that he hasn't even noticed us approaching."
  • "I bet that's why the wheel isn't spinning–he's taking the color right out of the water!"
  • "YES! We made it to the Big Paint Star, Mario. Let's go grab it."
  • "Hmm. Actually, this isn't a Big Paint Star at all. It's much to small."
  • "Mario, this is a Mini Paint Star!"
  • "Not to worry–this is a good sign! Mini Paint Stars are kind of like... baby Big Paint Stars."
  • "So we must be on the right track. Mini Paint Stars will always lead to Big Paint Stars!"
  • "And Big Paint Stars will lead to my beautiful fountain being restored to its former glory!"
  • "Whoa! What's going on?!"
  • "Well, that's not good."
  • "That airship is making off with a huge bucket of paint!"
  • "Did they steal all of that from Port Prisma?!"
  • "Grab this red Mini Paint Star, and let's get moving!"
  • "This is where the red Mini Paint Star led us. Ruddy Road!"
  • "OK, Mario. Let's look for the next Paint Star!"
  • "What the heck is going on here?"
  • "They're making a break for it!"
  • "Don't let them get away!"
  • "They're sucking the very life out of this beautiful island!"
  • "You Rescue Squad guys are so cool. I love the color-coordinated getups, and your scarves are CHOICE!"
  • "It's another one of those weirdos!"
  • "...Huh? He hasn't noticed us yet. This is our chance to get the jump on him."
  • "If you jump on an enemy of whack it with hammer before battle starts, you'll do some early damage!"
  • "Also, you can change your battle controls in the menu. The advanced controls allow you to set and paint cards in one step!"
  • "There it is! There's a Mini Paint Star over there!"
  • "That was easier than I thought it would be."
  • "Hurry up and grab it so it can show us the way to the next Paint Star!"
  • "Where ya going, genius?! Get over here and grab the Mini Paint Star already!"
  • "Huh? But... But why didn't it go flying off when you touched it?"
  • "HOLD UP! What in The Lost Levels is going on here?"
  • "Look! LOOOOOK! The color! It's been drained!"
  • "This is a sick world we live in!"
  • "THAT PUNK!"
  • "After him! We'll make him pay for this!"
  • "Whoa! Look at that!"
  • "You saw it too, right? A Toad just fell off that airship!"
  • "He must have fallen somewhere in this lake. I hope he's OK. We should go look for him."
  • "There's something stuck to the other side. I don't think we can open it from here."
  • "We really need to get in there!"
  • "If we can just get on top of those blocks, we should be able to drop down to the other side."
  • "Wait a minute... YES! There's a clear line!"
  • "All right, Mario. I'm gonna teach you a mind-blowing technique. Watch closely."
  • "There, see this line on the gate? Looks like stairs, right?"
  • "When you see clear lines like this in the world, you can use the Cutout technique!"
  • "Go ahead–press Y Button!"
  • "Bam! That dotted line there. That's what I'm talking about!"
  • "We can use this power to transcend dimensions and cut out part of the background!"
  • "Get cutting, Mario!"
  • "You did it! That's the Cutout technique!"
  • "When you see other places where it seems like you could cut something out, try pressing Y Button!"
  • "If you see a dotted line appear, that means you can use Cutout!"
  • "All right, let's drop down to the other side of the gate and look for that fallen Toad."
  • "You know, for a Shy Guy, you're all right, kid."
  • "Whoa! WHOA! What a gift! Your card slots increased!"
  • "You can now play an additional card during your turn in battle!"
  • "In other words, you can play two cards per round now!"
  • "Thanks, Shy Guy! Wait... Where'd he go?"
  • "Oh, look! Two Shy Guy 4-Stacks right on cue!"
  • "Let's experiment with that second card slot."
  • "Set two cards at once and unleash mayhem, Mario!"
  • "There's a Toad clinging to that tree!"
  • "Do you think that's the Toad who fell off their airship?"
  • "He looks like he could get blown away at any seconds. Let's go help him!"
  • "Wow! And I thought I was you biggest fan, Mario!"
  • "Weird nonflat objects like this are called Things."
  • "And just like when I turned flat, these Things can be wrung out."
  • "So go ahead and press A Button to give it a good squeeze."
  • "You're the Toad who fell from the airship, right?"
  • "I'm glad you're not hurt, but, uh... you seem more... naked that your average Toad."
  • "Justice Toad? Uh... Is this guy for real?"
  • "How did he say that with a straight face?"
  • "Justice Toad, huh? Well, I guess we can't abandon you in your time of need."
  • "Besides, if you catch a cold, who's going to save the world? We're on the case!"
  • "Look! It's a red Mini Paint Star. So Cherry Lake DOES have one..."
  • "Wow, there's a blue Mini Paint Star here!"
  • "So Cherry Lake has a red AND a blue Mini Paint Star?!"
  • "But it's too far away to reach. Hmm..."
  • "So... they're just normal shoes, then."
  • "Yeah, those are underwear. You're just wearing two pairs of underwear."
  • "Uh... That's just a normal vest, man."
  • "This is getting embarrassing..."
  • "Bahaha! You're a hoot! Though I guess we actually do need some help right now."
  • "There's a blue Mini Paint Star nearby that we just can't reach. Got anything up your sleeve?"
  • "Um... Right."
  • "Look, this whole "superhero" thing is cute and all, but–"
  • "OK. We don't have time for this. Later, Justice Boy."
  • "WHAAAA–?! That was AMAZING! You moved the Paint Star!"
  • "Incredible! And it seems you're also part unicorn! Although your horn is a kinda crooked."
  • "I really thought you were just a crazy person!"
  • "Mario, I can smell a big load of paint beyond that gate!"
  • "It smells like red paint. Way stronger than the red Mini Paint Stars that led us here..."
  • "The red Big Paint Star must be in the Crimson Tower beyond this gate!"
  • "Mario! Look at this gate!"
  • "Is it just me, or do these kind of look like mushroom-shaped keyholes?"
  • "Maybe the gate will open if we find those three keys?"
  • "Wait, if you came all the way here from Port Prisma just to see a bridge... are you some sort of bridge builder or something?"
  • "Port Prisma was attacked, and the bridge in the blue district was destroyed. It's kind of a problem."
  • "Oh, yes. This was definitely a bridge. We started over there, and now we're on this side."
  • "Um... kind of at a loss here. It was... really supportive? I don't even have feet, you know!"
  • "...Wait a sec. I smell paint! And not just any old paint..."
  • "It's Paint Star paint! Coming off a blue Paint Star, if I'm not mistaken."
  • "Huh. Doesn't look like it's going to be easy to get to though."
  • "How are we supposed to get up on that roof?"
  • "Huh, it looks like the post office took a little damage in the attack. See? The sign is crooked."
  • "Excuse me, Mr. Toadmaster, but we noticed that your sign is crooked. Thought you'd want to know."
  • "Wow, we're on the roof!"
  • "Um... were you thinking about giving our cards back? We could be attacked at any moment."
  • "Are you kidding me right now?!"
  • "We don't have any Battle Cards to defend ourselves with. What are we going to do?"
  • "Wait a minute... I almost forgot. There IS something we can do..."
  • "Battle Spin!"
  • "What an odd Toad."
  • "Whatever! All's well that ends well. And learning about Battle Spin and getting a Mini Paint Star count as a happy ending in my book!"
  • "So the Rescue Squad needs to be... rescued?"
  • "This happens to you a lot, huh, Mario?"
  • "But if the Mini Paint Star led us here, there must be another Paint Star in this cave."
  • "Let's go check it out!"
  • "We've rescued one member of the scattered Rescue Squad! Five more to go!"
  • "That's the second Rescue Squad cadet! Just four left."
  • "Um, we removed the tape. You can come down now... if you want to."
  • "Just three more Rescue Squaddies to find."
  • "Two more rescue peeps left! We're getting close."
  • "OK, now there's only one missing Rescue Squaddie left!"
  • "BOOM! We rescued the whole Rescue Squad! All six of 'em!"
  • "All right, let's get back to the leader."
  • "Oceanfest?! The Paint Stars are missing, and you're planning a beach party?!"
  • "...But I guess Toads will be Toads. I miss the days when they used to dance around Prisma Fountain."
  • "If we ever want to see another Toad color party, we need to find those Big Paint Stars!"
  • "There should be a Mini Paint Star somewhere on this beach. Let's take a look around."
  • "WHOOOOOOA!"
  • "Would you look at that view!"
  • "Sorry, I've never actually seen this part of the ocean before. Amazing!"
  • "To bad I'm just a flimsy piece of paper now. Otherwise I'd go for a swim!"
  • "WHAT?!"
  • "This is definitely the Toad you gave the key to! I was following!"
  • "Hm... Mario, something about this smells fishy. They definitely gave the key to THIS Toad."
  • "If only there was a better way to keep track of which Toad is which."
  • "AHA! I KNEW IT! This is all a BIG SCAM!"
  • "Look at the paint! There's your proof!"
  • "Before they shuffled around, we slapped some paint on the Toad you gave the key to!"
  • "Was... that a green Mario cosplayer? That must be weird for you."
  • "The gentle roar of the waves... The salty sea air... This is the life!"
  • "With the Big Paint Stars being lost and everything that's happened since..."
  • "I haven't really had any ME time."
  • "I really do love the ocean..."
  • "Man, they weren't lying. I feel totally blissed out!"
  • "Looks like you are too, Mario! You look refreshed!"
  • "DUDE! Forget being a surf legend. You just stopped a giant wave in its tracks! No mere surfer can do that!"
  • "And check out the shape of your noggin!"
  • "Say, come to think of it, there's a hole in the gate to Crimson Tower that looks like it was made for your dome!"
  • "And it just so happens we're trying to get into the Crimson Tower to find a Big Paint Star. Do you think you can help us?!"
  • "He didn't need to journey to the end of the world after all. He just needed to look inside himself."
  • "A Mountain Sage! That's one of those guys who knows everything right?"
  • "Amazing! Did you here that, Mario?"
  • "If this guy's really a wise, old Sage, he must know where to find the Paint Stars!"
  • "Let's climb this mountain and meet the Mountain Sage!"
  • "Hm, what's with this place? Mood seems kind of... gloomy."
  • "Is this the park ranger that the gatekeeper mentioned? Maybe he's one of those emo types."
  • "Yes, sir! We'd like to climb Daffodil Peak and meet the Mountain Sage."
  • "We understand. These colorless spots are a real downer. I'd be depressed, too."
  • "Mario, this guy's really bringing me down."
  • "Think we can fix this place up a bit?"
  • "Just a little more. Please do something..."
  • 'Oh, scrap! This is..."
  • "An Unfurl Block!"
  • "Hitting an Unfurl Block grants you the power to Unfurl certain objects. But only for a limited time."
  • "While your Unfurl power is active, just hammer things that bear the Unfurl Mark to, well, Unfurl them!"
  • "Come to think of it, wasn't there something with this same mark inside the cabin?"
  • "Nice Unfurling, Mario!"
  • "Wonderful! Thanks, sir!"
  • "Glad we could help. I actually feel a lot better, too."
  • "Oh, there's an Unfurl Block!"
  • "There must be something around here with an Unfurl Mark on it then. Let's look around for it."
  • "Oh! There's an Unfurl Mark here!"
  • "So there is no Mountain Sage?!"
  • "SHENANIGANS! WE'VE BEEN HAD!!"
  • "Mario, let's go give the gatekeeper a pice of our mind!"
  • "...After we grab the Mini Paint Star, of course!"
  • "Only your schnoz fits through, Mario!"
  • "Let's go to Daffodil Peak and give that lying gatekeeper a piece of our mind!"
  • "HEY, LIARFACE! There IS no Mountain Sage! You just made it up to sell tickets to your boring mountain!"
  • "What? You thought he was real too?"
  • "Really? Because we hiked all the way to the peak, and all we found was some cheesy carnival cutout!"
  • "Hmm. I don't know..."
  • "I think both of these guys are telling the truth, Mario."
  • "You train on the mountaintop?! So that means..."
  • "Great! So there really IS a Mountain Sage!"
  • "...But you lost your memory?"
  • "Are you still able to use the power of the Chosen Toads?"
  • "Well, color me impressed! Remind me to stay on your good side..."
  • "Hey, do you know anything about the Big Paint Stars? We're looking for them."
  • "I'm guessing it won't open until we repaint it."
  • "This really is a big paint job. There's no way we can do it alone."
  • "Let's just focus on finding more Paint Stars. We can deal with this later."
  • "We'll never be able to paint this ourselves. Let's just get out of here."
  • "Yeah, only because Mario caught them slacking off."
  • "It turns out that your funky horn thing may fit into on of the keyholes in the Crimson Tower gate!"
  • "It worked... but... The Toads are... gone."
  • "Thank you for your sacrifice, Chosen Toads."
  • "I'll tell my children and my children's children's parents about you."
  • "Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa...?!"
  • "Wh-wh-wh-wh-wh-wh-what?!"
  • "Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-happened?!"
  • "Mario! What?! How?! This?!"
  • "It's all BONE WHITE!"
  • "I'm gonna be sick..."
  • "What do we even... do?"
  • "There's no way we can paint all this with your little hammer... No offense."
  • "But this is... We're done. We can't do anything here..."
  • "Huh?! What's that?!"
  • "You OK, Mario?"
  • "We managed to get on the ship! This is our chance!"
  • "Let's hijack this thing and take that bucket of paint back."
  • "That's not good! Maybe we should have kept one of them around to pilot this thing!"
  • "Mario! I'll try to stabilize the ship. Go after the bucket!"
  • "There must be a switch or something to release it!"
  • "OH SCRAP...
  • "Why even have a self-destruct button on your airship?! That's just bad engineering!"
  • "But it's all good. Because the Crimson Tower is crimson again!"
  • "It'll probably be pretty rough in there, Mario. Maybe we should restock our cards before we go in."
  • "And the Know-it-All Toad in the trash can in Port Prisma can tell us if we'll need anything special."
  • "Let's head for the top of the tower. The Big Paint Star is definitely up there!"
  • "You heard that, right? BIG PAIN STAR?"
  • "I think he means Big Paint Star!"
  • "It's gotta be at the top of this tower! We need to get up there now!"
  • "But wait..."
  • "How does he even know the Big Paint Star is here?"
  • "And also... WHO WAS THAT GUY?!"
  • "Those Shy Guys are working against us! Let's surprise them from below!"
  • "AHHHHHHH!"
  • "Uh... Hello, gentlesir! We overheard that you're looking for the Big Paint Star. We are too."
  • "May I ask who might be? Perhaps we could search for the Big Paint Star together!"
  • "Um... Yes. Hello. I'm Huey, and this is Mario. Yes, THAT Mario."
  • "Yes, we're looking for a Big Paint Star. Have you seen one?"
  • "Uh... Nice to meet you, Morton. Look, we really need Big Paint Star."
  • "You know... I don't think we're really getting anywhere here."
  • "WHAAA?! He broke the floor!"
  • "Something tells me he's heard of before..."
  • "This Morton guy is going to be trouble. Let's tread carefully."
  • "Morton broke the floor, so we can't get to the top! I wish life was a video game. Then we could just press Y Button to make a staircase appear!"
  • "Ooh, baby! I just caught a big whiff of paint. The Big Paint Star is close! Let's keep chasing Morton!"
  • "Look! It's the red Big Paint Star!"
  • "But there's something wrong with it. We need to help it quick!"
  • "Master?"
  • "Someone ordered Morton to get the Big Paint Star?"
  • "So someone else is trying to get the Big Paint Stars too?!"
  • "But at least we've found the red Big Paint Star!"
  • "Looks like it's fainted from being so dried out..."
  • "OK, Mario! Jump into it and wake it up!"
  • "Finally! The red Big Paint Star is back in its rightful place."
  • "It's all thanks to you, Mario! I don't know what we'd do without you."
  • "Wait... did the Paint Star just SAY something? That's never happened before."
  • "No... that's not possible. Maybe it's more like... we can somehow hear its voice inside our minds?"
  • "Oh, that was awful! I've never seen such wanton disregard for paint!"
  • "At least we got to see what happened to the other Paint Stars."
  • "That horrible monster just flung them to the corners of the island without a second thought!"
  • "We're on it, Red!"
  • "Prisma Fountain must be restored! Everyone should be able to see the joy and beauty it brings to our town."
  • "Whoa! Looks like Red just powered you up, Mario!"
  • "Of course, what we could really use is a detailed map, showing us EXACTLY where that monster threw our Paint Stars!"
  • "But this will have to do for now. I just hope we have enough power to defeat that... thing!"
  • "Hold on, Mario! We need a plan. We don't even know where that airship is going yet!"
  • "Plus, I mean... did you get a good look at that bad guy? He flung those Paint Stars like they were nothing!"
  • "I've got an idea. Remember how the red Big Paint Star said to let the paint be our guide?"
  • "Well, I bet if we can recover all of the Big Paint Stars, they'll point the way to Princess Peach."
  • "I know it's kind of crazy, but it's all we've got. Come on, Mario. We've got a lot of work to do!"
  • "Wait... a secret door?! What's with all this high-tech stuff just sitting around in a crummy storage room?"
  • "This is weird, Mario, but I'm thinking it could be good-weird. Let's check it out!"
  • "An underground museum?! This must be one of those super-snobby art places that no one knows about."
  • "Sounds like it's for a good cause!"
  • "Plus, Port Prisma is my hometown. It'll be nice to visit the museum when I'm old and reminisce about our adventure!"
  • "Look at that, Mario! You see what I mean by the power of paint?"
  • "The Big Paint Star did all of this by itself. Now the Scarlet Gate is as good as new!"
  • "Let's open the Scarlet Gate and keep going!"
  • "All right, we're in!"
  • "I smell another Paint Star around here somewhere–let's go find it!"
  • "All right, now where could that Paint Star be...?"
  • "Mario, your preemptive hammer and jump strikes will grow more powerful every time you find a Big Paint Star."
  • "If an enemy is weak enough, you might be able to just instantly squash 'em with your hammer ad not have to battle at all!"
  • "There should be an Unfurl Block somewhere around here. Let's find it!"
  • "You know, it's awfully quiet around here. That's never good."
  • "I've got a really bad feeling about this, Mario."
  • "The last time I felt this way, I caught someone mixing eggshells and flat paints! Do you realize how–"
  • "Did you see that?!"
  • "Some kind of missile just landed in those faraway hills!"
  • "Step on it, Mario!"
  • "Let's get to the mountains and made sure everything's OK!"
  • "There must be an Unfurl Block somewhere around here. It could be anywhere, so get crazy with the hammer if you have to!"
  • "*sniff* *sniff*"
  • "UGH! Something smells TERRIBLE around here! Like paint mixed with... stickier paint... or something."
  • "It's coming from over there somewhere. Let's go check it out."
  • "We're getting close to where that thing landed. I hope everything is OK..."
  • "Man! What's with this place? First the stinky paint, now a faulty ramp?"
  • "What's next? Improper soil slopes?"
  • "IT'S WORSE THAN I EVER COULD HAVE IMAGINED!"
  • "Everything has been painted black!"
  • "That thing that fell from the sky must have been a... a bomb full of black paint!"
  • "I've got a REALLY bad feeling about this..."
  • "This is terrible! That bomb must have exploded with black paint!"
  • "Mario! Are you OK? Don't touch the black paint!"
  • "This stuff is beyond toxic! Whatever you do, don't touch it!"
  • "I'm sorry... I should have warned you."
  • "I need to make this right..."
  • "Would you, uh, mind closing your eyes for a sec?"
  • "OK. You can open your eyes now."
  • "All right! Now let's never speak of this again!"
  • "Look, there's the Mini Paint Star I must have originally smelled. Onward!"
  • "All right, we know there's a yellow Mini Paint Star on the mountain somewhere... Now, let's go get it!"
  • "What a peaceful and cozy little house! Must be nice to live here."
  • "Ah, so this is where the professor lives! Let's go inside and meet him."
  • "I'm not sure. I think maybe we need to talk to the professor. See, we're looking for missing Paint Stars, and..."
  • "It's kind of a long story, but we can see one of them from the professor's front yard."
  • "How does he get any work done with this giant spike on his desk?"
  • "So the professor is in Mondo Woods. Maybe there's a Mini Paint Star nearby that can help us get there..."
  • "Have you tried Cutout lately? Something about that barn looks suspicious to me... like it doesn't quite line up..."
  • "So the professor and Princess went for a walk in the woods but haven't come back. Let's find 'em!"
  • "Hey, Mario..."
  • "Is it just me, or is there something... unusual about this forest?"
  • "I mean, I can't quite put my handle on it, but..."
  • "Oh. I just figured it out."
  • "EVERYTHING'S HUGE!"
  • "I hope the professor and Princess are safe out here. It's not exactly the nicest neighborhood."
  • "Oh man. Looks like another giant wall that we're gonna have to repaint."
  • "Wait a tick..."
  • "It's a giant coin! We're rich!"
  • "Or... we would be. If we could actually pocket a coin that big."
  • "And if it weren't completely drained of color."
  • "Never mind, Mario. Sorry to get your hopes up. We're not rich. Unless you count friendship."
  • "Which I do."
  • "Dude, I get it. I want the mega coin just as much as you do!"
  • "But some things are just not meant to be. And I hate to see you waste all of your yellow paint like this."
  • "Eh?"
  • "Whoa, Mario! Did you see that?! Never mind–I saw it, and I'll explain it to you right now!"
  • "That weird nearsighted guy just inflated that Goomba!"
  • "Maybe he's the one... making EVERYTHING big!"
  • "INCLUDING MY VOICE!"
  • "This giant Goomba is a giant pain! I think you're going to have to take it out for us to move forward."
  • "Hmm... What's this?"
  • "Some kind of chain, maybe? I wonder if the professor dropped it."
  • "Yup, I'm pretty sure it's a chain. Let's leave it here for now."
  • "Hey, uh..."
  • "Sorry to bother you while you're softly crying to yourself, but would you happen to be the professor?"
  • "You see, we're looking for the professor of super-old things."
  • "Yeah, uh... I wish we could help, but we're kind of busy searching for the Paint Stars."
  • "Does she know the way home? Maybe she just went back home!"
  • "Well, he cheered up quickly."
  • "I sure hope Princess is waiting for him at home. For all of our sakes..."
  • "I smell paint! There must be a Mini Paint Star nearby..."
  • "Professor, pull yourself together! I'm sure she'll turn up."
  • "Wow, that's a cool-looking train! I wonder if it works..."
  • "The tracks just stretch off into the vast, boring unknown here, Mario. No point going this way."
  • "Did you here that? Fossils! Let's try to get closer!"
  • "We can't access this site without some kind of permit from the professor. Let's come back later."
  • "Ah! We have a permit! See, check it out!"
  • "Yes! Now we can see what all the fuss is about!"
  • "Oh, right... I suppose we should also be looking for Paint Stars..."
  • "How about this? You keep looking for Paint Stars, and I'll just do a tiny amount of fossil hunting. Deal?"
  • "Whoa, did you feel that?"
  • "It's getting louder! What's going on?!"
  • "Isn't this the Rescue Squad's job? Where are those guys?"
  • "I guess we'll have to do it ourselves, Mario!"
  • "Hey, Mario. Hold on a second."
  • "This whole dig site seems a bit.. seismologically unstable, wouldn't you say?"
  • "And I just felt a little vibration in the air..."
  • "So this seems as good an opportunity as any to say something important."
  • "I just want you to know that, should something catastrophic happen, I will protect you."
  • "I would literally throw my body in front of–"
  • "Oh, hey! I found a safe spot over here for you. I was just keeping it warm."
  • "Anyway, what WAS that thing? It's probably been causing all of the problems around here."
  • "Let's head back to the main site before it comes back."
  • "Well, I'm not sure how it'll help us, but let's give that bone a squeeze. You know, for science."
  • "So this is a Draggadon fossil? I wouldn't want to run into this guy in a dark alley!"
  • "I didn't expect it to be so... colorless. Kind of looks like it's been drained!"
  • "Hey, Mario. Smells like there's a Paint Star on the other side of that hole. Let's check it out."
  • "Looks like that monster rolled through here and off into the sunset..."
  • "Well, it's been real, but let's grab the Paint Star and get outta here!"
  • "Ooh, I smell a Paint Star!"
  • "But I think it's behind that "door.""
  • "Yeesh! Someone really went overboard with the decorative spikes in here."
  • "I'd like to get a closer look, but as a rule I try to avoid giant, point spikes of death."
  • "Uh... Oops."
  • "Well, at least we can get across the spikes now."
  • "This is the kind of door you get when you're REALLY tired of solicitors. Looks like it's missing a spike."
  • "Do you think that spike the professor gave us would fit in that hole? Give it a try!"
  • "That sharp spiny-looking spike that looked like the spiny spike of a Spiny really was a Spiny spike!"
  • "*sniff sniff* Come to papa, Paint Star!"
  • "Isn't it fun exploring a dangerous and mysterious temple like this? Watch your step!"
  • "I gotcha, bud!"
  • "I'm gonna pull you up. Ready... HEAVE!"
  • "Well, that was a close call."
  • "You'd be looking at the Game Over screen if it wasn't for me!"
  • "Hey, look over there!"
  • "Two Mini Paint Stars! One right above the other."
  • "But... how are we going to get over there?"
  • "Yikes! Forget about the Paint Stars–what are we going to do about this lava? It's rising!"
  • "Listen here, you overgrown thumbtack–we're taking that Paint Star!"
  • "Get ready for a fresh coat of PAIN!"
  • "What's he screaming about? Let's check in at that window over there before heading inside."
  • "Did he say we could win a Big Paint Star?! Lemme at 'em! I'll win the Battle Royal fair and square!"
  • "Or, maybe you could win it. Since you're the heroic type and all, Mario."
  • "Really? Well, who would have been so kind as to preregister us?"
  • "Because we've never been here before, you know."
  • "I guess that's just another perk of being famous, huh, Mario?"
  • "Awfully dark in here, isn't it? They're really setting the stage!"
  • "I can't wait to get medieval and crunch my foes in a Battle Royal!"
  • "I mean... I can't wait to watch you do those things."
  • "Look, Mario! There it is!"
  • "The Big Paint Star!"
  • "Mario, I'm not sure we can beat him with the cards we have right now..."
  • "This isn't working! We have to get out of here and regroup!"
  • "Whoa, we made it to the outer wall! Check out the view!"
  • "Ooh, ninja-style. I like it."
  • "Come on. Let's go get it!"
  • "We did it! The yellow Big Paint Star has been returned to Prisma Fountain!"
  • "No way!"
  • "So it was Bowser's underlings who drained that Toad of color and mailed him to you guys!"
  • "They must have sent that letter to lure you to Port Prisma so they could kidnap Princess Peach!"
  • "OK, if we can just keep finding Big Paint Stars and piecing these memories together, Bowser's evil plan should become clear!"
  • "Oh man. Looks like another giant wall blocking our path."
  • "Cha-ching! The yellow Big Paint Star painted this entire giant coin for us!"
  • "We're rich, Mario. RICH! Now there's nothing left to do but twirl our mustaches and count our money. Muhahaha!"
  • "WHAT?!"
  • "That only counted as ONE coin?! Shenanigans! SHENANIGANS, I SAY!"
  • "*sigh* The mustache twirling will have to wait, I suppose."
  • "Mario, did you hear that? Paranormal activity! Like ghosts and junk!"
  • "We should investigate. I have an inkling that this has something to do with the Paint Stars."
  • "And it's not just colorless spots–this place is creepy as all get-out!"
  • "Besides... I've always wanted to be a paranormal investigator. Ooh! We should get business cards!"
  • "WHAAAA?! Those books just flew off the shelves by themselves! I'm telling you, Mario–this place is haunted for sure!"
  • "WAAAAAAAAH! The paint revealed a ghostly presence! No way..."
  • "Mario, are you... scared?!"
  • "So even Mario gets scared sometimes. Don't worry–I won't tell Princess Peach."
  • "Isn't that room 201 over there?"
  • "Say, is this the book you were looking for?"
  • "We got "it" back for you."
  • "Huh? What was that noise just now?"
  • "If you're trying to catch a bird, maybe this will help."
  • "Cool it. We brought you some fresh sheets."
  • "Uh... Is this the red bird that you mentioned?"
  • "Wow! Consider our spirits raised!"
  • "We've solved the paranormal puzzle of Dark Bloo Inn! Now let's get that Mini Paint Star, Mario!"
  • "So, you haven't seen a teapot around?"
  • "Well, Mario. I guess it's up to us to find that teapot."
  • "That... was unexpected. I might have to pick that album up."
  • "The coast is clear. Let's take a look
  • "O......K. Looks like that tea-bag guy was the source of the poison!"
  • "This place smells waaay better now! And I also smell the unmistakable scent of a Paint Star!"
  • "Let's take a stroll through the park before we return the teapot to the inn!"
  • "The forest is still huge. Kamek must be SOME magician for the effects to reach way out here!"
  • "Whoa! It's another one of those massive blank spots. Gross..."
  • "Are those a couple of Toad's hanging out in the middle?"
  • "No way, dude. You are NEVER going to this whole thing. Trust me–I'm a paint can."
  • "Star from the sky? Mario, you thinking what I'm thinking?"
  • "Um, Chef? Is there ANY way to expedite the reservation process?"
  • "Perhaps if we fanned you for another couple hours?"
  • "I see..."
  • "Mario, we're going to have to find something else out..."
  • "Whoo-ee! It sure is hot inside this volcano. Good thing I don't have any sweat glands."
  • "This probably goes without saying, but try not to fall into the lava, OK?"
  • "It certainly is an impressive sight... Seems like something could pop out at us at any moment."
  • "But for the time being, it doesn't look like anything's gonna happen here."
  • "And it's not like we can walk across hot lava. Let's head back for now."
  • "Whoa! Part of the sea is completely colorless! This is a severe environmental issue! One could even call it a "green" issue!"
  • "Though I guess it's more of a "blue" issue."
  • "The sea being colorless is kind of... worrisome. Let's go check it out."
  • "It's just a bunch of Shy Guys. Nothing we can't handle."
  • "Are you really trying to paint the entire ocean with your hammer?"
  • "How are you still alive?!"
  • "Perhaps I didn't make myself clear earlier..."
  • "KNOCK IT OFF!"
  • "I wish we could help, but we can't sail through that colorless water. Unless..."
  • "If we could track down a Big Paint Star and repaint the sea, we could probably save your captain!"
  • "GAH! We managed to pull the turnip out, but the Pipe came out too!"
  • "The whole point of pulling the turnip out was to go through the pipe!"
  • "Huh, what's that? Maybe try pulling on it?"
  • "A new Pipe grew out of the same spot! Nature works in mysterious ways."
  • "Ah, finally the forest is normal sized again!"
  • "It seems that Kamek's magic didn't reach this far."
  • "Wait a tick, Mario."
  • "Does that sign over there look a little... strange to you?"
  • "OH! Weird."
  • "The writing on this sign is SUPER TINY."
  • "Why do you think it's so small? And why am I whispering?"
  • "A Mini Paint Star! Here?! And no boss guarding it? That's... a little too easy."
  • "Well, no complaints here. Grab that puppy and let's move on."
  • "GAAAH?! It vanished!"
  • "Could those tiny guys really have carried it off?"
  • "Huh?"
  • "My back feels... itchy."
  • "GAAAAAH! It's moving!"
  • "GET IT OFF! GET IT OFF!"
  • "WAS THAT REALLY NECESSARY?!"
  • "I mean... thanks."
  • "Now where were we? The Paint Star, right!"
  • "You BETTER not have dented my can, fur face."
  • "Huh? Is that...?"
  • "GAH! They broke the Paint Star into pieces! Those MONSTERS!"
  • "Judging by the size of this piece, I'm guessing they broke it into five parts."
  • "We've got to find the other pieces and bring them back to the entrance!"
  • "Huh? How'd a piece of the broken Paint Star end up here?"
  • "Psst. Mario. It's me, Huey."
  • "Smells like there are a bunch of Goombas out there. Either that, or you could REALLY use a shower."
  • "Goombas? Yeah, I thought so. OK, I'm just gonna stay in your pocket for this one."
  • "There's no way you can survive an onslaught of that size. Avoid that Goomba army at all costs!"
  • "Psst! It's me again! Well, there's no one else in your pocket, so of course it's me."
  • "A Paint Star piece is wading in that sea of Small Goombas!"
  • "We've gotta get to it somehow! You'll figure it out, Mario!"
  • "Well, it's definitely a pipe. But it's tiny."
  • "No way I'm going in there. I've seen this movie before."
  • "Smells like you got a piece of the Paint Star. Nice!"
  • "He's not huge; you're just a shrimp! Kamek's magic must have shrank you!"
  • "Look, Mario! A Mini Paint Star piece is stuck in that tree!"
  • "Hang on a sec!"
  • "I'm just gonna, uh, stay back here. Go ahead and whack it with your hammer!"
  • "Oh, so you'll whack me in the back, but you won't whack the tree? We need that Mini Paint Star piece!"
  • "So there were a bunch of tiny Goombas in the Sacred Tree. Thought that might be the case."
  • "Man... it sure got dark out quick. Dark and stinky!"
  • "GAAAAAAAH! Mario! GET IT OFF! GET IT–"
  • "On second thought, I've got this one."
  • "OK, Mario. Let's put that Paint Star back together."
  • "We did it! The Mini Paint Star is whole again! Impressive handiwork, Mario."
  • "Let's grab it and go!"
  • "A TRAPDOOR?! Where the heck are we?"
  • "The floor's covered in water. And it looks like this pipe does[sic] down even deeper..."
  • "Well, you've seen a pipe or two in your day, Mario. What do you think? We don't have a lot of options here."
  • "Whoa..."
  • "It's so quiet. Are we... underwater? But we can still breathe!"
  • "Awesome! There's our Paint Star!"
  • "This fort... There's no mistaking that smell. The blue Big Paint Star is here!"
  • "Mario, this Shy Guy is, like, made of metal! Seems like he'll be tough to beat."
  • "Press ? if you want a hint about how to defeat him."
  • "Guess he ran away WITHOUT his tail between his legs. Ha! Get it?!"
  • "Mario, it seems like the fence panels get shuffled around each time you hit one."
  • "If only we could keep track of which fence panels you've already hit..."
  • "OK, that's DEFINITELY a trap. That Thing up there makes it totally obvious."
  • "Ouch... You might want to get that checked out."
  • "Whew! That was a good workout. Been a while since I got my paint pumping like that!"
  • "Quit bragging, you classically trained half-wit! There's a Big Paint Star here–I know it!"
  • "You can't hide it from me! I can smell things. Things normal paint cans only dream of smelling!"
  • "Stuff your sorries in a sack! And toss the Big Paint Star this way!"
  • "Mario, it's the third Big Paint Star. Old Blue!"
  • "Jump into it and wake it up!"
  • "The blue Big Paint Star has been returned to Prisma Fountain!"
  • "So that's what happened!"
  • "Bowser's army invaded with a ton of air ships and hauled off all of the paint!"
  • "The one we destroyed at the Crimson Tower was just one of them..."
  • "But what are they doing with all of that paint?"
  • "Guess we'll have to rescue the next Big Paint Star to find out!"
  • "Don't mention it, Captain! Your ship should be able to set sail now that the color has been restored to the sea!"
  • "Whereabouts are you headed?"
  • "Fortune Island, eh? Hmm..."
  • "You know, the Violet Isles have a lot of nooks and crannies. We might find some Paint Stars there too!"
  • "Sounds... like... fun. But I'm SURE there are some Paint Stars there!"
  • "Mario, we need to figure out how to cross the Lost Sea before we set off. Let's see what we can find."
  • "Did some kind of legendary captain write on that scrap of paper? That just might help us find a way through the Lost Sea."
  • "Let's go show it to the regular captain!"
  • "Yeah, it was just lying around. You might want to see an optometrist."
  • "And who is this "legendary captain"? That's a pretty impressive title."
  • "So this piece of paper contains an entry from the legendary captain's journal?"
  • "So that means we can cross the Lost Sea now, right?"
  • "Uh... Yeah!"
  • "Let's go look for Fortune Island more Paint Stars!"
  • "Well THIS is a change of scenery. What's that round thing jutting out of the water there?"
  • "You've gotta hit those big-point targets, Mario! Try to remember when they come out..."
  • "Ah, more adorable Toad rocks poking out of the water. Looks like the place we started, but slightly different..."
  • "More uncharted waters!"
  • "Is that a... coin floating there? I want that coin..."
  • "Mmm... You smell that?"
  • "It's a Mini Paint Star!"
  • "But... there's a Mini Paint Star sitting there in the center... just waiting for us to grab it!"
  • "Well, that famous whirlpool is keeping us from saving a precious Paint Star! Is there anything that can be done?"
  • "Ah! Maybe the Toad who lives here can tell us something useful..."
  • "Let's start by reviving that Toad!"
  • "We're in a bit of a bind! Our ship is stuck because of that whirlpool."
  • "What?! A parallel world... identical in every way?! What are we waiting for, Mario? Let's go!"
  • ""It's identical in every way!" Yeah, right. This place is creepy!"
  • "Has Mr. Captain given up already? If we don't do something about this whirlpool, we won't be able to get that Paint Star, you know."
  • "Aw, come on. We can't just give up when there's a Mini Paint Star so close by."
  • "We'll think of something."
  • "Eh... let's not tell him. He seems motivated right now, so let's just roll with it."
  • "Right, Mario, let's go! Yo ho ho!"
  • "(Why can't we ever meet anyone normal?!)"
  • "There, there, Mr. Lighthouse Keeper. Maybe we can fix the light for you."
  • "Um, how do I put this...?"
  • "We, uh, already know about the parallel world. Weird pipe, right? Leads to a freaky opposite world?"
  • "Another parallel world... And in the most unlikely of places: the middle of an unexplored and deeply mysterious ocean..."
  • "Well, if I know my parallel worlds, and I'm beginning to think I do, we should go check this place out."
  • "Maybe we'll find the key to turning the lights back on... and finally make our way to Fortune Island."
  • "Paint Staaar!"
  • "Aww, he was gonna come rescue us. So cute..."
  • "Anyway, let's get back to the ship!"
  • "Aha, one of those weird pipes! Fortune Island must have a parallel world, too."
  • "Anything for you, Captain!"
  • "Besides, I'm getting a whiff of that sweet, sweet Big Paint Star smell! Let's go, Mario."
  • "Mario! I can smell the Big Paint Star in this room!"
  • "I'm going to go take a look..."
  • "Whaaa! What's this?!"
  • "Mario! Come quickly!"
  • "*cough* *cough* So much smoke... I can hardly breathe!"
  • "But I think I saw the Paint Star off in the distance through the smoke."
  • "How can we clear all the smoke out?"
  • "Whoa! It's full of treasure! Could this be the fortune of... well, of Fortune Island?!"
  • "Snifit or Whiffit?! REALLY?"
  • "The captain won't be happy when he hears that the fabled treasure of Fortune Island has been claimed by some cheesy game show..."
  • "I have a feeling we're going to need that treasure from Snifit or Whiffit. Did you ever get the prize for clearing the bonus round?"
  • "Hey, look at that!"
  • "Smoke is pouring out of that adorable little volcano!"
  • "It must be rising up into the room with the Big Paint Star."
  • "Now we know where the smoke is coming from, but how do we stop it?"
  • "Mario! I smell something delicious coming from inside that cave!"
  • "I'm going to take a closer look..."
  • "Whaaa! Again?!"
  • "Mario!!! Come quickly!!!"
  • "It's just like that smoky room in the normal world."
  • "I can see... something... in there. But unless we do something about that smoke, we won't be able to get it!"
  • "Hey, look at that!"
  • "Someone over there is MAKING all of that smoke! Who IS that?"
  • "Look, we're sorry about your food. It's just that squeezing Things usually helps us in our adventure. It's a reflex at this point."
  • "Plus, I mean, it smelled REALLY good..."
  • "This Toad is really persistent... Don't think we're gonna be able to lose him."
  • "Well, uh... we still got that Paint Star to find, so... you two take all the time you need."
  • "Hope your memories come back!"
  • "No more smoke!"
  • "All right, the smoke is gone!"
  • "Let's wake up the Big Paint Star!"
  • "Uh... What was that?"
  • "We did it! Now we can take that Big Paint Star!"
  • "We got what we came for, but the captain must be horribly depressed about the lack of treasure here..."
  • "Does that mean you remember what happened, um, other captain?"
  • "Awwwww... Now let's wake up our treasure, the Big Paint Star!"
  • "Woop woop! The purple Big Paint Star is back in Port Prisma!"
  • "Those Slurp Guys sucked the paint out of everything in Port Prisma!"
  • "But why are they so Paint crazy?! They didn't just slurp walls and the ground–they slurped Toads!"
  • "What is Bowser planning?"
  • "Wow, that giant colorless spot was actually a huge sinkhole!"
  • "Uh, I hope that Toad who was lounging here is OK..."
  • "Whoa, that's quite a breeze!"
  • "Gah! We're getting blown away!"
  • "Mafio?! Whaf waff I fooing?!"
  • "I refemfer the fwind flew uth, and I fell in thiff fole, and fhen..."
  • "Fold on, giff me a fecond..."
  • "Ah! That's better..."
  • "I hope you didn't panic too much when I went under the sand there."
  • "Good thing I don't need to breathe! That's the benefit of not having lungs."
  • "Anyway, I'm all good now, so let's figure out how we're getting out of here!"
  • "Yep, there's a rock in the way. Watch your head!"
  • "Hey, look! The chef IS down here. But it seems like he's doing... OK."
  • "I... I'm not even touching it!"
  • "Mario, I think what the chef is trying to say is that if we take him back to the surface, he'll show us the Paint Star!"
  • "He's got the keys to the café anyway, so let's help him out."
  • "All right, Chef! You're good to go!"
  • "This isn't like you, Mario. Come on–let's help the poor guy out!"
  • "It's no use... There's no way out of this cell."
  • "What is this terrible place, anyway? Why is there a secret Snifit hideout beneath the desert?"
  • "Well, I suppose we have to soldier on somehow in the face of impenetrable prison cells."
  • "Think, Mario! There's got to be a way out of here!"
  • "Whoa! I should have known you'd figure something clever out."
  • "I mean, when you first dove into the sand, I was like, "this guy's lost it.""
  • "But I guess you're just the kind of guy who leaps before he looks, huh? Well, anyway... nice work."
  • "Now let's go find the chef and get out of here. I really want to get my handles on that Paint Star..."
  • "Shoot. I suppose a KEY CARD is REQUIRED!"
  • "Careful, Mario! This is the bottom floor. That sand is likely to swallow you whole!"
  • "I knew it! That's a Mini Paint Star. Come on, Mario–let's go grab it."
  • "Well, I hope your last job will be a memorable one at least!"
  • "On another note, have you guys seen any Paint Stars around here?"
  • "Whaaat?! Really! Just like that?!"
  • "Like, you mean we don't have to go on a voyage to some island, or fall in a hole and then escape from jail?"
  • "All we had to do was talk to you?! That's my kinda mission!"
  • "Well, all right then... We'll take it!"
  • "Hey, whoa, I mean... Let's not jump to conclusions, you know?"
  • "Whoever did this might have had a perfectly valid reason."
  • "Like, maybe he just wanted to see what would happen if he smacked a rickety column with his hammer..."
  • "Oh, uh, certainly! We'll keep our eyes peeled, sir!"
  • "And I hope everything gets sorted out with the tracks soon. Remember–deep breaths."
  • "Mario! This guy gave us a Paint Star before like it was nothing."
  • "The least we can do is help him go out with a bang here!"
  • "These Shy Guys seem awfully... bold."
  • "Hey! Get your grimy little stumps off that coal!"
  • "Are you all right, Mario?"
  • "You could use a shower, but I'm glad you're not hurt."
  • "At least those Shy Guys won't be bothering us anymore, eh?"
  • "Thanks, foreman."
  • "Mario, let's do to the restaurant. There must be a Mini Paint Star there!"
  • "Too few cooks in the kitchen?"
  • "Well, we are kind of busy with the whole Paint Star thing, but..."
  • "AHH! It's just impossible to turn down a Toad for anything! You're all so adorable, even under duress!"
  • "We'll go and check out the kitchen."
  • "It's a Mini Paint Star!"
  • "By "big star" could he mean the Big Paint Star? Is there a Big Paint Star at the end of the Sunset Express?!"
  • "Don't listen to him! Panicking never solves anything!"
  • "We need to clear the tracks. If the Sunset Express doesn't run, we can't get to Starlight Cape."
  • "If we can't get to Starlight Cape, we'll never find the Big Paint Star!"
  • "If we don't find the Big Paint Star... WE'RE ALL DOOMED!"
  • "EVERYBODY, PANIC!"
  • "Whoooooooo... Sorry about that."
  • "Maybe you just need to be a little more polite..."
  • "Ahem. Excuse me, sir? Would you mind moving aside?"
  • "MOVE IT, PINHEAD!"
  • "It's no good. I don't think it can hear us. Maybe it's sleeping."
  • "Ooh! If we could find a way to make my voice louder, I bet we could startle it awake!"
  • "Let's get back to the Sunset Express."
  • "Next stop: Starlight Cape!"
  • "Whoa, that was close!"
  • "Mario, did you see that suspicious character on the roof?"
  • "It doesn't seem like there's anything if we keep walking this way."
  • "Giant steak? So YOU're the VIP?!"
  • "Whew, we made it! It got a little dicey there, but I had fun!"
  • "So, there should be a Big Paint Star around here somewhere... Let's see what we can find!"
  • "Wow! Look at that, Mario! The star-filled sky is just gorgeous!"
  • "No wonder it's called Starlight Cape."
  • "Ooh! A shooting star!"
  • "Did you make a wish, Mario?"
  • "You probably wished for Princess Peach to be safe, am I right?"
  • "My wish was that we'd get all six Big Paint Stars back, of course!"
  • "There it is! The Big Paint Star! My wish! My wish is coming true!"
  • "I bet that the shooting star heard my wish!"
  • "That means that your wish will also come true, Mario!"
  • "Let's grab that Big Paint Star and keep trucking on together!"
  • "Huzzah! The orange Big Paint Star is back!"
  • "No way!"
  • "Bowser got covered in black paint right here in Prisma Fountain!"
  • "But... why was there black paint in Prisma Fountain in the first place?!"
  • "No matter the reason, the black paint came from this very fountain!"
  • "We need to find the last Big Paint Star ASAP!"
  • "DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA..."
  • "DRAGGADON!"
  • "Luckily, I speak a little Draggadon! But I haven't used it since college. Ahem..."
  • "HEY! DRAGGADON! I AM HUEY. THIS IS MARIO. WE ARE FRIENDS."
  • "HOW ARE YOU DOING? SURE IS HOT IN HERE, RIGHT?"
  • "I think that's bad..."
  • "Oof. That had to hurt."
  • "We were just trying to calm him down... but now I feel guilty."
  • "Whoa! He's really out of it!"
  • "Like... he's not moving at all. Hmm..."
  • "You know, if we could find something to lead him, maybe we could, like, RIDE him around!"
  • "Wait... don't you have some food on you? Why don't you see if it smells good to the Draggadon?"
  • "Yes! Looks like we've snagged ourselves a pet Draggadon!"
  • "Man, he's really focused on that Magma Burger. I bet he'd take us anywhere right now."
  • "Look–a Paint Star!"
  • "Aww, it's awfully far way, isn't it? How are we gonna get it?"
  • "Whoa, Draggadon sighting! Guess he didn't like it in here, though."
  • "I wonder what it is about this room that bothers him..."
  • "What a way to travel. That was exhilarating! And look... a Mini Paint Star!"
  • "All right, why don't you give this poor guy his Magma Burger? He's done enough for us today."
  • "Oh, you want to keep riding? Sounds good to me. Wheee!"
  • "We can always buy another one, and he DID get us to the Paint Star, so let's give Draggadon the Magma Burger as a sign of our appreciation."
  • "DRAGGADON! THANK YOU FOR THE RIDE. PLEASE ENJOY YOUR TASTY BURGER. WE LOVE YOU. BYE."
  • "Hey, I don't think that's going to work without any bait. Why don't you get another Magma Burger from Fort Cobalt and try again?"
  • "Well, Mario here is one of the best jumpers I've ever seen! He could probably go pro if he wanted."
  • "So we'll go find the Thing you're looking for and deliver it to the Tangerino Grill."
  • "I thought he said he couldn't jump..."
  • "Hey, I can smell a Paint Star on the other side of this wall!"
  • "It's too steamy to see clearly... There must be another hot spring on that side."
  • "Hey, this Thing seems like it could melt that huge block of ice at the restaurant!"
  • "This is just sad..."
  • "There's no way we're fitting in there."
  • "There we go! We should be able to fit in this bad boy now!"
  • "There it is!"
  • "Man, you've got some luck, Mario. Can't believe we found a Paint Star so deep in these woods."
  • "What's the matter, Mario? Grab that thing, and let's roll like a... paint roller."
  • "I don't see any trouble around here, but maybe I GLOSSED over it. Get it? Gloss? 'Cause paint?"
  • "Well, I don't see you making any good puns!"
  • ""Size you down"? He's going to shrink us, isn't he?!"
  • "Bring it, old man! We'll make you wish you were never painted!"
  • "It's a Card Max Up... thingy!"
  • "With this, you'll be able to play an additional card in every combat turn!"
  • "Thanks, Kamek, but it still doesn't make up for the terrible things you've done."
  • "The forests are still the wrong size!"
  • "YOU LISTENING?!"
  • "I'll take that as a "no.""
  • "Locked, eh? Let's try knocking."
  • "Mario! Help me! This... this DEATH CLAW just grabbed me out of nowhere!"
  • "And now what? You're trying to steal the power from my body with this claw?"
  • "Well, I'll never give up my power. NEVER! Wait, I don't think I even have any power..."
  • "Cat food? How dare you! Let me outta this thing!"
  • "Wait... what did you say about losing power? Did something trip a breaker?"
  • "Mario, that might have been one of our Paint Stars!"
  • "We should take a closer look at this monitor."
  • "So... green Toad Science Guy... can you let me down? And turn this thing on?"
  • "Uh, Mario? You weren't planning on just leaving me here, were you?"
  • "Urgh! All the paint has gone to my head! I could really use a good five minutes in a shaker..."
  • "So... if I remember correctly, lightning tends to strike tall, metal objects."
  • "I was right about the lightning..."
  • "Yeah, you're welcome, science guy."
  • "Hey, Mario, check it out. I can practically smell our Paint Star through this screen."
  • "Based on the minty-fresh scent, I'd say it's a green Mini Paint Star we're after."
  • "By the way, what's all of this nonsense on the screen?"
  • "And that music... it's making me so... happy and nostalgic... for some reason."
  • "Yes... fascinating."
  • "Anyway, I'm positive that one of our missing Paint Stars is in there."
  • "Can you... can you get US in there somehow?"
  • "Whoa, this is so WEIRD! Everything's all... bleeps and bloopy!"
  • "Heh. Some things never change. Here we are, inside a crazy pixelated world, and there's a Goomba!"
  • "Try stomping on it or smashing it with your hammer–like you would in the real world!"
  • "Hmm... this is a bit of a problem."
  • "Let's try changing our perspective a little bit."
  • "This is going to use up a little bit of paint, but it's totally worth it. So, go ahead and press Y Button and see what happens..."
  • "Wow! That's even crazier than I expected. You should try doing this all over the place!"
  • "The only thing is... I can only help you hold this perspective for a little bit at a time. Like... 10 seconds."
  • "When the time is up, you'll pop back into the real world. I mean... the real fake world that we're in."
  • "Anyway, if you want to go back to normal before 10 seconds have passed, just press Y Button again, OK? Have fun, and be careful!"
  • "Well, that flag seems important somehow. Maybe it's how we get out of this place."
  • "Why don't you try jumping on it? You know, like you do at the of a Cutout sometimes!"
  • "Mario, the Mini Paint Star is still inside the monitor! Let's go back in there and look around some more."
  • "Hey, look at that!"
  • "It might be a weird and chunky, but that smells like a Paint Star to me!"
  • "YOU GOT A MINI PAINT STAR!"
  • "Mario! It says there's a circus! It says it's fun! It wouldn't lie about that!"
  • "They said the circus is just up ahead!"
  • "Can we go, Mario? Please please please please please!"
  • "Ooh! A giant tent in the middle of the forest!"
  • "This must be the Emerald Circus, right?"
  • "Listen here, dino-dragon things! It's not OK to go around eating people whole."
  • "I mean, you don't even know where Mario has been! I'd go brush my teeth, it I were you."
  • "Wow. So this is a circus? It's so lively in here!"
  • "Every seat is full, and the audience is giddy with anticipation!"
  • "I've never actually been to the circus before, so I'm super excited!"
  • "The Big Paint Star!"
  • "Where did the Paint Star go?! That Lemmy guy made it disappear before he escaped!"
  • "NO! No no no no... I don't do well in front of crowds. Well, here goes nothing. *gulp*"
  • "Um. Uh..."
  • "You guys, uh... You guys like impressions?"
  • "Tin cans always be like..."
  • "Tough crowd. That joke used to kill back at the recycling plant."
  • "I thought maybe... because paper is recyclable too...?"
  • "OK, Mario... Got any jokes up your sleeve? Please tell me you've got something."
  • "Really?! They liked THAT but my tin-can impression flopped?!"
  • "Where was MY mushroom at?"
  • "Merch table?! I don't care about the stinking merch table!"
  • "I want that Big Paint Star! Where's that clown Lemmy?!"
  • "It's the green Big Paint Star! It was probably up here all along!"
  • "Huh? There's a hole in the tent."
  • "This must be where the star came out of the tent! Some illusion."
  • "Does that mean... Lemmy came out through this hole too?"
  • "Well... that was definitely the best circus I've ever been to."
  • "Now let's wake the Big Paint Star! It's the last one!"
  • "Hmm... I couldn't quite tell which colorless location the green Big Paint Star restored just now."
  • "But now all the Big Paint Stars are back at Prisma Fountain!"
  • "So that's what happened... It all makes sense now!"
  • "If you mix all six of the fountain's paint colors, the paint turns black!"
  • "Bowser was just having fun mixing all the paint together! He didn't have an evil plan after all!"
  • "You're telling me we could have avoided this entire game if we just installed a "Don't Mix the Paint" sign?!"
  • "Oh well. Hindsight is 20/20, and I've really enjoyed getting to know you, Mario!"
  • "But our quest isn't over yet. We still have to do something about Bowser!"
  • "Right! But... how do we find her?"
  • "I was just assuming that the Big Paint Stars would show us the way somehow..."
  • "Whoa! Did you see that, Mario?"
  • "It's like some kind of... rainbow... but, like, also a road. A road made OUT of RAINBOWS! That's ludicrous!"
  • "Well, there's nothing to do but give it a try, I suppose. If this is what the Paint Stars gave us, it must be right. Let's go!"
  • "So the Rock Paper Wizard was really a Toad! Deep down, I guess I knew it all along..."
  • "Wait! Are you seeing this, Mario?!"
  • "There were this many Rock Paper Wizards?!"
  • "Aw, come on! Our magical road is too slippery to walk on? After everything we've done? Gah!"
  • "Thanks, Luigi. If anyone gives you any trouble, just give 'em that mean stare you showed us earlier."
  • "All right, Mario. Let's go rescue Princess Peach!"
  • "Look! It's Princess Peach!"
  • "They've drained her color and framed her like some kind of pretentious art!"
  • "OK, Bowser got us with that one."
  • "But at least we're not surrounded by bad guys!"
  • "What are you doing? Mixing all of the paint like that is just going to make a bunch of black paint! Oh."
  • "Mario, we can't do anything with this black paint all over the place. Think! Do we have anything that could wash all of the paint away? Some kind of "machine" that was designed specifically for "washing"?"
  • "The nerve of that guy! You NEVER use a man's own paint against him! There are treaties against that!"
  • "Anyway, Princess Peach is still up there. Let's go save her!"
  • "What is going on here? This is the creepiest thing I've ever seen!"
  • "Look at those huge buckets! Just like the ones that were attached to those airships..."
  • "So this is where they've been bringing all of the paint they stole from Prism Island. But why?"
  • "And why are they taking the paint into that tunnel?"
  • "Just what is Bowser planning?"
  • "Man! How are we gonna get past this guy without a bucket?"
  • "Think! Is there anything around here that could pass for a bucket?"
  • "Wait. You want ME to pretend to be a common bucket?"
  • "Well... if it will help save paint... I guess I can give it a try."
  • "He's making black paint bombs!"
  • "Those are just like the one that fell on Sunglow Ridge. Do you remember that horrible mess?"
  • "With this many bombs, he could... Why... he could paint the whole world black!"
  • "It looks like they're pumping in all of the black paint from that room over there."
  • "We HAVE to put a stop to this!"
  • "THAT POOR PAINT!"
  • "They're mixing all the beautiful colors together without any regard for chromaticity!"
  • "Sorry. I... I just really like paint."
  • "How do we fix this?!"
  • "Hey, Mario! I have an idea..."
  • "See those giant Bob-ombs over there? What if we blew them up?"
  • "I bet they'd be strong enough to destroy the black-paint tank! Plus it'll be REALLY fun."
  • "The question is... how do we blow up the giant Bob-ombs?"
  • "Do you think a small Bob-omb is enough to ignite a big one?"
  • "It worked! So much for Bowser's bomb factory..."
  • "But all the black paint from the tank is flooding the room! HOW IS THERE SO MUCH?!"
  • "It's rising! Don't let it touch you!"
  • "YAHAAAAA! WE'RE ALIVE! But now Princess Peach is gone..."
  • "I'm beginning to understand why you've been fighting this Bowser guy for 30 years."
  • "Before we go any further, there's something I need to tell you, Mario."
  • "You know... never mind. Now's not the time. Let's keep moving..."
  • "Actually... I really need to get this off my chest."
  • "I feel like we've gotten to know each other pretty well, Mario."
  • "Ever since that day when you woke me up by crushing my face with a hammer."
  • "We've had some laughs, we've had some hard times... we've had some mild electrocution."
  • "But through it all, you've never given up on me–or on finding all of Prism Island's precious Paint Stars."
  • "So I guess I just want to say... thank you."
  • "No matter what happens next, I will always be grateful for your friendship."
  • "Well, there's just one thing left to do. Let's go stop Bowser and save Princess Peach!"
  • "OK, you're right. That's two things."
  • "It's over, Bowser! We already destroyed your bomb factory!"
  • "Surrender now, and we'll draw a nice bubble bath so you can wash that gunk off!"
  • "This isn't working, Mario! No matter how much damage he takes, the black paint keeps rejuvenating him."
  • "I... I think we just need to get all of that paint OFF him somehow."
  • "I have an idea... but I'll need to return to my original form. From before you wrung me out–remember?"
  • "Thanks, Mario."
  • "I feel kind of... heavy... but I also feel strong!"
  • "So, here's the plan. You need to use me as a shield to block Bowser's black-paint attacks."
  • "Don't worry about me. I feel stronger than ever right now!"
  • "I should be able to steal a little paint from him every time you block an attack."
  • "You got that? Focus on blocking his attacks by pressing A Button at just the right time."
  • "LET'S DO THIS!"
  • "GRAAAH! It worked! I absorbed the black paint!"
  • "But, man... That was more painful than I thought it would be."
  • "I can only withstand about 10 more of those attacks, so make each and every one count."
  • "Mario, the damage from blocking these attacks is starting to get to me..."
  • "But I noticed that when we deal damage to Bowser, black paint starts to pool around his feet."
  • "Once a lot of black paint builds up around his feet, he launches more-powerful attacks, giving us a chance to collect a bunch of paint!"
  • "But those powerful attacks are harder to block. That stakes are high!"
  • "Try to collect as much black paint as you can every time you block an attack!"
  • "URRRRRRRRGH..."
  • "This is bad. I don't know how many more hits I can take..."
  • "Mario, if you've got anything else up your sleeve, now's the time to pull it out!"
  • "Do as much damage as you can so we can get the rest of his black paint!"
  • "It's no good! My body can't take anymore!"
  • "We did it! We stole all the black paint from Bowser!"
  • "Bowser's at his weakest... Now's the time to hit him with our most powerful attack!"
  • "We did it, Mario..."
  • "We beat Bowser!"
  • "Oh, right! The princess. Let's repaint her right away!"
  • "That's not good. Black paint incoming!"
  • "I don't think this castle's going to last much longer. Let's get the princess and get out of here!"
  • "GO GO GO!"
  • "Mario, this is no time to go exploring! Hurry up and save Princess Peach before this place collapses!"
  • "NO! All of that work...for nothing!"
  • "We can talk later, Princess! We need to get out of here now!"
  • "We're almost out. Keep moving!"
  • "The road is detaching from the castle! Hurry!"
  • "What are you waiting for?! GO GO!"
  • "No... I'm afraid I can't."
  • "When this castle collapses, all of that black paint is going to fall out and land somewhere."
  • "I can't let that happen."
  • "I'm a guardian, created to protect the Prisma Fountain in times of crisis."
  • "It took me a while to realize it, but my purpose is not to recover the Paint Stars."
  • "It's to destroy the black paint."
  • "The road is about to collapse! You need to leave NOW!"
  • "I'll be right behind you. I promise. I can fly–remember? I just need to take care of this mess first."
  • "I'll see you all at Prisma Fountain!"
  • "All right. *sigh*"
  • "I hate lying to them..."
  • "But it's the only way!"
  • "Here goes nothing... Big Paint Stars, grant me the power to SQUEEZE!"
  • "I... I did it."
  • "And not a drop of black paint spilled..."
  • "The only thing left to do... is take this paint far away from Prism Island."
  • "So far... that it can never hurt anyone ever again..."
