Fairy Council

I heard Globox talk to a plant saying 'Oh, tortoise, can I come in your shell? Oh, you're too busy? Too bad.' or something like that. What the heck is he on about, because there's clearly nothing there. Iheckler9 12:20, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Who cares what he's on about? They got the dialogue files mixed up or it was a glitch or something. The important part is that if he calls it a tortoise, that means it's a tortoise, not a turtle. Which is kind of obvious now that I think about it, since turtles are aquatic creatures and the things we see in the Fairy Council clearly live on land. They also move very slowly, which is a characteristic of tortoises, not turtles. They're also portrayed as being elderly (calling Rayman a 'whippersnapper' when he kicks them), and while tortoises are often wrinkly-looking and can live to well over a century (sometimes two), turtles are much smoother-looking and tend to have a much shorter life-span.
Unless they're actually referred to as 'turtles' at some point in the game, we should definitely move the page to 'tortoise'. —Spiraldoor 14:18, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Again, what I quote is what I remember, so I'm not sure if they're turtles or not.
Not that it bears any importance, but tortoises can be referred to as turtles (especially in American English). I don't think moving the page is a bad idea though. —Hunchman801 15:30, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Um...It's not a glitch, and the turtle-tortoise thing doesn't really matter. He just talks to this plant while adressing a turtle. Iheckler9 18:00, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Quote list

We could add a list of the phrases that the turtles say? It might be a good idea to improve the article. What's your opinion? —Rayspola 14:30, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

I don't see why not. Maybe we could have a paragraph with a list of quotations. —Spiraldoor 16:03, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
