The Terrible Trivium Quotes:

  • The Terrible Trivium: Hello, little boy. Welcome to you, your faithful dog, and that handsome gentleman. I'm so terribly happy to see all of you. But before you travel on, I wonder if you could spare me a little time and asssist me with a few trivial tasks?

    Humbug: Why of course, we're in no hurry.

    The Terrible Trivium: Now young man, if you will take these exquisite tweezers, and move this pile of sand from here, to here.

    Milo: With these?

    The Terrible Trivium: Of course. And you sir, have the privilege of taking this delicate needle for digging a hole through this cliff.

    Humbug: Why, thank you sir! An exacting assignment, quite worthy of my talents. I shall enjoy it no end.

    The Terrible Trivium: And you sir, get to take this eye-dropper and empty that well.

    Milo: But these tasks don't seem very important.

    The Terrible Trivium: Of course they're not important! If you always do the easy and useless jobs, you'll never have to worry about the important ones!

    Tock: Now I know who you are! You're the Terrible Trivium!

    The Terrible Trivium: Quite correct! The Terrible Trivium, demon of petty tasks, ogre of wasted effort!

    Milo: Come on, Humbug, let's get out of here!

    The Terrible Trivium: [advancing] And *friend* to lazy and foolish people everywhere!

  • The Terrible Trivium: Come back. Come back! There are so many things to take away, and things to bring back!

    Humbug: [being dragged away by Tock and Milo] So many stamps to lick; so many pencils to sharpen.

    The Terrible Trivium: There are so many holes to dig!

    Humbug: So many nails to straighten.

    The Terrible Trivium: So many doodles to doodle!

    Humbug: So many goofs to oof.

    The Terrible Trivium: Come back! There are so many useless things yet to do!

    Humbug: There are strings to tie, nits to pick, fingernails to bite, paperclips to unbend...

    [sees that he is hanging over a cliff]

    Humbug: LIVES TO SAVE!
