Why all the bolds?[edit]

Why so many bolded words? Also, are these all necessary? Some of these are just, "Hey! I got powers!" Finally - can we make a separate wikiquote for Molly? Please? - Darkhawk

Words are bolded when they are bolded in the comics for emphasis. Also, why does Molly need a separate wikiquote?- Paxluvfelicitas

Formatting[edit]

I have attempted to follow a format akin to that of TV shows. While technically, comic books are literary works, the standard format of those is ill-suited to the comic book where the attribution is done via graphic, rather than textual means. Since most Runaways characters have pages, I have followed the Firefly rule of "first time a character appears in an episode [issue], link to character page". That allows a compromise between heaviness of formatting and reader ease-of-use. I have taken some liberties with the pseudo-textual qualities: when there are two consecutive balloons, one ending in "--" and one beginning with "--", I contract them to one "--". In general, I collapse consecutive balloons to one line, following the "wikiquote is for text" theme. I use bold when the comics uses bold, though italics could be argued (italics are hard to do by hand, which is why comics use bold). ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 16:48, 25 September 2005 (UTC)

One more note -- since the characters hardly ever use aliases, and most do so only when Gert insists, I have taken the convention of always attributing the quotes to the real name. ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 16:52, 25 September 2005 (UTC)

Full up[edit]

As of now, every published issue has a quote from it. ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 10:54, 8 October 2005 (UTC)

Full up. - paxluvfelicitas 26 Oct. 2007

Removed "Rebel Without a Cause"[edit]

We usually don't give quote from works when they exactly quote some other work — the quote belongs in the original. Hence, I moved the Rebel Without a Cause quote here, in case anyone wants to create a RWaC article and use this quote. Thanks ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 05:06, 11 October 2005 (UTC)

James Dean/Rebel without a Cause:I never thought. I'd live to see eighteen. "Isn't that dumb? Every day. I look in the mirror and say. What? You still here ? Man! "Like even today. I woke up this morning you know? And the sun was shining and everything was nice and I thought this is going to be one terrific day, so you better live it up, boy because tomorrow, maybe you'll be gone." (The last two page)
