Sora to Hoshi: Now, the Sheevra are back. And I'm going to find her.

Samba: Wait, was that really THREE years ago?

Beleen: How have we not gone back for Barb yet?

Hero: I guess we just kept getting distracted with other things.
Hero: Malgor's army attacking… a million turdrakens invading… EbilCorp taking over Battleon… Killing the Queen of Monsters?!…

Samba: Yeah, we should cut ourselves some slack.

Beleen: Are you ok?

Scriptkeeper: Uh… I'm sorry, I think you have me mistaken for someone else.

Sora to Hoshi: They must have really gotten into her head! She doesn't even remember who she is.

Beleen: Don't worry Barb! We're here to rescue you!

Scriptkeeper: Sure, whatever. Just… give me your offerings and go inside.
Scriptkeeper: Weirdos.
