No, not Edna & Harvey either, but you're sort of on the right track.

Aha! A female leading character and a zany sidekick - that must be A Vampyre Story.

Edit: And it is. Watch this from 2:43 on.

As for the reference, here's the pointy-eared icon (in Warhol style ):

Yes, of course you're right, zobraks.

(NCC-1701 is the registry number for the USS Enterprise from Star Trek, and Froderick is referring to the geek culture usually associated with Star Trek fandom.)

Speaking of geek culture (Guess who?) :

That sounds like something from Toonstruck, Edna & Harvey or Torin's Passage.

(And yes, that's me hidden under that costume above. I was at an anime (Japanese animation) convention in Toronto in 2002, as Taomon from Digimon Tamers.)

OK. This is really driving me nuts. I really think that I should know this one, but I rack my meager gray matter to no avail. I cannot come up with anything. So, how about it, zobraks, why don't you give us another hint?

Please?

So, now that you (finally) asked - here's another quote from the same game:
Quote:

No. Listen to the wise quiz-demon.
Both quotes were spoken by the game's main character, btw.
In the first he was referring to a mystical cat, in second to a furry monster keeping the entrance to a very colo(u)rful place .

zobraks, I can't believe no one has made a guess yet, even with your helpful hint! (One in three chance of getting it right?)

It's Toonstruck. (The second quote was spoken by Drew when he and Flux first entered Seedy's bowling alley.)

I'll be extremely busy at work this week and next week, so someone else can take my turn.

You were in the right ball park from the start but I didn't want to confirm that and attract the vultures (stupid vultures! ) .

Gee, I thought someone would jump at the chance to post a new quote.

"For the wild narrative which I'm about to tell, I neither expect nor ask for belief. It would be mad to expect such a thing, in a case where my own senses reject their evidence. Yet I'm not mad... and surely do not dream."

That's The Dark Eye, and it's a reference to Edgar Allan Poes quote, one of my favourite writers!

Yes, of course you're right, SweetDalilah. (If I had time, I wish I could re-read some of the stories adapted for the game.)
