The Quill Pen is an item in the NES release of Mario's Time Machine. It is a writing utensil used by William Shakespeare in 1602. At some point, it is stolen by Bowser, who exhibits it in his museum full of time-displaced and stolen items. Mario then steals it back from some Koopa Troopas and travels back in time to 1602 to return it, which involves leaving it on a stage. A news article then appears congratulating Mario for returning the Quill Pen, saying that Shakespeare can continue to write his plays.
