    I can't get the actual quote right now, but I found very hilarious the line where Faile thinks the creator has a sense of irony when she was finally carrying the horn of valere :D She was the hunter of the horn after all!

    "Philosophers claimed the Pattern did not have a sense of humor. The Pattern, and the Wheel, simply were, they did not care, they did not take sides. However, Faile could not help thinking that somewhere, the Creator was grinning at her. She had left home with her head full of arrogant dreams, a child thinking herself on a grand quest to find the Horn. Life had knocked those out from under her, leaving her to haul herself back up. She had grown up, had started paying mind to what was really important. And now . . . now the Pattern, with almost casual indifference, dropped the Horn of Valere into her lap."

    "You didn't listen. I didn't come here to win, I came here to kill you"
    -al'Lan Mandragoran

    This.

    Rand's quote when fighting the DO that everyone hears, "That man.... that man still fights!" (or something approximately like that) was pretty frickin' awesome.

    The whole discussion with Mat and Rand was hilarious, but I think my favorite section

    "...................I could bloody try. No offense, Rand, but you're going to go mad and all. I figured I'd give you one less friend nearby to kill. You know, save you some trouble. What did you do to your hand, by the way?"

    Egwene on Mat:

    "Weren't you listening.................of course you weren't. It's a pleasure to know that as the world crumbles, a few things are completely unchangeable, Cuendillar and Mat Cauthon"

    "p.s. In case you dont knwo what 'Do what needs to be done' means, it means I want you to go bloody slaughter as many of those Sharan channelers as you can. I'll bet you a full Tar Valon mark- it's only been shaved on the side a little- that you can't kill twenty. -MC"

    "I had long wondered," Lan said to Tam. "About the man who had given Rand that heron-marked blade.....Now I know."

    "I might be dead, but I'm still your commander, and you will obey orders!"

    I laughed pretty hard at that one.

    Almost anything Mat said was wonderful and hilarious.

    Possibly my favorite (on the comedy side of things) line in the book came from an unexpected source, though. Elayne!

    "...by a bloody goat's left stone!"

    Oh man, spent quite some time laughing at that. It was great to finally see some examples of all these creative curse words she's been learning all along.

    Ediy: forgot! I just about died when Rand calls Avi "shade of my heart." And then later she calls him that, too. Brought tears to my eyes.

    "Lovely. Set the table. I hope we have enough dinnerware. I knew we should have sent the maid for that five thousand seven hundred and thirty-first set."
    -Talmanes

    I also really liked a bunch of the lines from Mat and Lan, who are quite possibly my two favorite characters in the series.

    The banter between Rand and Mat was a good bit of writing. I'm improved.

    Unlike Jeffan I really loved the flame of tar valon. I thought it was very apt, especially as Egwene was about to die.

    I loved the part where Noel comes back for Olver and Olver is over joyed that someone has come back to him. That was sweet.

    "I cleansed Saidin, so I win." The banter between Rand and Mat was Epic!! I wish it lasted just a little longer.

    "Demandred! You call for the Dragon Reborn! You demand to fight him! He is not here, but his brother is! Will you stand against me?"
    -Galad

    Even though he loses, I thought it was a pretty epic entrance

    Yeah! And I loved that Galad accepted Rand as his brother.

    My favourite quotation from AMOL seems to be from one of the most popular scenes in the book. Rand asks Mat what happened to his eye, and Mat responds:

    "A little accident with a corkscrew and thirteen angry innkeepers. The hand?"

    Can't help but chuckle at the thought of that. haha
