Quote templates for normal-style characters?

We created {{homsarquote}} to placate users who couldn't settle on just one quote for the Homsar page. It's grown substantially, but it's remained manageable because Homsar doesn't really have that many appearances, relatively speaking, and so we can put everything he says on a page. We then added {{cardgagequote}} and {{whalequote}} because they're in the same vein: characters that we don't see often that spout non sequiturs. On the other hand, I think a quote template for a normal-style character, especially the character that dominates the site, is not a good idea. Assuming just three or four gems per appearance (which for some toons is probably a very low figure), Strong Bad has literally said thousands of funny lines. We couldn't possibly hope to contain them all in a such a template, nor should we try. — It's dot com 04:03, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Then why is there {{whalequote}}? Homsar and Strong Bad are easily quotable characters and you can make just as much an argument for Strong Bad as you can for Homsar. If you don't keep this, then there really is no reason for there to be any quote templates at all. --I slayed the Kerrek. Be careful, or you're next. 06:37, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
