Our Favorite Quotes:'The best legacy we can leave is making a present worth opening tomorrow.' - Ethan Clade (Strange World) Click To Tweet
Narrator: [referring to Jaeger and Searcher] Together, these two are destined to finally find a route through these impassable peaks. No matter the cost.
Jaeger Clade: Alright, Searcher, the path to the other side of the mountains is through this cave. How are you holding up?
Searcher Clade: Great. Pretty sure all my toes are frozen off, so at least they don’t hurt anymore.
Jaeger Clade: Well, as I always say, “Exploration is snow joke.”
Jaeger Clade: Searcher, we’re explorers, not gardeners. Conquering those mountains is our legacy.
Searcher Clade: No, Dad. It’s yours.
Jaeger Clade: Enough! You’re my son.
Searcher Clade: But I’m not you! I’m not you.
Ethan Clade: [as he sees his parents kissing] Ew. This is the first image that has to be imprinted on my brain this morning?
Meridian Clade: Oh, Ethan, does this bother you?
Searcher Clade: Impossible. I mean, what sixteen year-old boy doesn’t like seeing their parents smooch?
Ethan Clade: Father, what is a weed other than a plant growing somewhere that you find inconvenient?
Searcher Clade: I’m Ethan’s dad, Searcher. You must be Diazo. He talks about you all the time.
Ethan Clade: Not all the time. Maybe sometimes, or on occasion.
Searcher Clade: Hey, Diazo seems cool. I see why you like him.
Ethan Clade: Please stop talking.
Searcher Clade: I remember my first crush.
Ethan Clade: Why are you still talking?
Searcher Clade: She had braces, I did too.
Ethan Clade: Stop. Please.
Searcher Clade: And then one time, we got stuck. And it wasn’t such a bad thing.
Ethan Clade: What is happening to my life?
Searcher Clade: Everyone thinks of Jaeger Clade as this amazing hero. But that’s only because they didn’t have him as a father. To me, he was just a really bad dad. And he didn’t care about me, he only cared about conquering those mountains. And I only care about you, our family, and our farm.
Ethan Clade: Well, I guess that’s what makes you a pretty good dad.
Searcher Clade: Wait. What was that?
Ethan Clade: Nothing. Nothing. I opened my mouth and no words came out.
'Can you not show off while we are running for our lives?' - Searcher Clade (Strange World) Click To Tweet
Searcher Clade: My son thinks I’m an amazing dad!
Meridian Clade: [referring to Callisto] What is the leader of Avalonia doing in our front yard?
Callisto Mal: Searcher, I’m mounting an expedition to save Pando, and I want you to come with me.
Searcher Clade: Callisto, I don’t go on expeditions. I’m not my father.
Callisto Mal: Yeah. He didn’t come back, you did. And you brought back a miracle. And now there’s something wrong with it.
Searcher Clade: [to Ethan] I will not risk your life. Not now, not ever.
Caspian: Mr. Clade, my name’s Caspian. I’m a huge fan.
Searcher Clade: Oh, thank you.
Caspian: Of your dad. Do you think you could forge his autograph?
Searcher Clade: What?
'I appreciate your appreciation. But maybe you'll appreciate me a little bit more, and respect my wishes.' - Searcher Clade (Strange World) Click To Tweet
Duffle: We got no idea what’s down there. If you want to back out, I could drop you off.
Searcher Clade: Wait. Seriously?
Duffle: No, I’m just messing with you. Look at your face. Oh! We need you to figure this out, otherwise we’re doomed. We are doomed!
Ethan Clade: [after they find out he’s stowed away on the ship] Oh. Hey, Dad.
Searcher Clade: You brought the dog?!
Searcher Clade: Hello. I’m a human being from the top world. You probably don’t understand a word I’m saying, do you?
Jaeger Clade: Of course I understand you. What do you thin I am? One of those mindless monsters? That’s right, bub. You’re in the presence of the one, the only, Jaeger…
Searcher Clade: [as Jaeger takes off his hooded cloak] Huh? Dad?
Jaeger Clade: Dad?!
Jaeger Clade: You’re probably just some oddly shaped rock that my eyes want to believe is a person.
Searcher Clade: I am not an oddly shaped rock.
Jaeger Clade: That’s exactly what an oddly shaped rock would say.
Searcher Clade: Wow. Okay.

Searcher Clade: You gave me a machete for my birthday.
Jaeger Clade: Classic Jaeger Clade.
Searcher Clade: I was two.
Callisto Mal: I got to say, Meridian, for a crop duster, you are one gutsy pilot.
Meridian Clade: Well, the three things I love the most are my family, my farm, and flying. Now if that last thing could protect the other two, I’d fly through fire.
Ethan Clade: A vast, undiscovered wilderness filled with fantastic creatures. This is just like Primal Outpost.
Ethan Clade: Okay, this is nothing like Primal Outpost.
Ethan Clade: [to himself] You can do this, Ethan. Just be brave. It’s in your blood.
'Can you go be dramatic somewhere else?' - Meridian Clade (Strange World) Click To Tweet
Ethan Clade: [to himself] Oh. Hey, Diazo. How was my weekend? Pfft. What did I do? Oh, yeah. I just ran through a nightmare tunnel to rescue my dad. No big deal. Yeah.
Ethan Clade: [as he sees Splat for the first time] What? That is so weird, but also kind of cool.
Ethan Clade: [as Splat slaps him] Ow! Okay. Yeah, I guess I deserved that. I did splat you into a wall.
Searcher Clade: What is this place?
Jaeger Clade: A subterranean labyrinth where everything’s alive. And most things, well, they want to eat you.
'My whole life, I worked so hard to be the exact opposite of my dad. And looks like I ended up just like him.' - Searcher Clade (Strange World) Click To Tweet
Jaeger Clade: Funny little goobers, aren’t they? Every time I blaze a trail, they unblaze it.
Searcher Clade: Wait. You literally discovered a world beneath our world, and that’s not enough?
Jaeger Clade: This discovery may be fine for some second-class explorers, but not for us Clades.
Searcher Clade: Woh, there. This Clade is not an explorer. This Clade is a farmer.
Jaeger Clade: A farmer? Ugh! Your mom has a lot of explaining to do.
Jaeger Clade: [after Searcher tells him his mom’s moved on with Sheldon] I am going to kill Sheldon!
Searcher Clade: What?
Jaeger Clade: I’ve always hated him.
Searcher Clade: You’ve never met him.
Jaeger Clade: I hate his name. And I’ll probably hate his face!
Searcher Clade: Yep, he’s taking this really well.

Ethan Clade: Do you mind if I call you Splat? I just came up with it. You just kind of give me Splat vibes.
Jaeger Clade: Searcher, you call that climbing?
Searcher Clade: I’m a forty year-old man that farms. Climbing isn’t really part of my day-to-day.
Jaeger Clade: So, you just forgot everything I taught you?
Searcher Clade: No, just the pointless explorer stuff. So, yeah. Everything.
Jaeger Clade: Oh, well, so much for the whole humble farmer bit, huh? Maybe you’re more like me than you want to admit.
Searcher Clade: I am nothing like you.
Jaeger Clade: Uh-huh. Just keep telling yourself that.
Searcher Clade: Whatever.
