Favorite Ellie Curse Word Or Vulgar Phrase (Spoilers?)

If you've played this game you noticed that Ellie curses, a lot. I found it pretty effective in conveying how rough the world has become in the years since the outbreak though they lay it on pretty thick with Ellie in particular. So among the storm of swear words she uses did you find one word or phrase that you really liked hearing out of her mouth for whatever reason.

I don't know why but for some reason I really enjoyed it whenever I heard her call someone "Fuck face." The moment I remember most is when some guy was about to head around cover to find me and I heard her say something like "Over here fuck face!" then she threw a brick at the dude to get his attention off of me. I just remember thinking "Awwwww, that's adorable." Meanwhile she's stabbing a dude to death with her knife and I couldn't help but laugh. I realize there's a lot of cursing to choose from, just pick your favorite use of something vulgar from Ellie.

I also liked when she said "Tell them it was Ellie who broke your fucking finger!"

I don't know about the swearing in particular, but I like that she still uses really weird kid phrases like "whoa nelly" and... a bunch of others that I'm forgetting.

fuuuck and jesus christ joel. just her being shocked when you down a bandit kinda makes it more real in a way.

I loved her little rock out sounds and when she finally learns to whistle. 'sounds like a spaceship'. was always fun to hear. notice after her run in with david she no longer does her little funny quirps?

I like her reading from the joke book

The quote after she snaps David's finger is a real winner. I was shocked to read it was Nolan North doing the voice work for that character. I might be alone on this but I could hear a bit of Mr.Garrison from South Park every time he appeared. Probably the best game on PS3.

The best part was crossing the dam, and do the high five prompt "Teamwork, yeah." Or right before that when you get the pallet and she say "I know, I know hop on the fucking pallet."

Those are two great picks :)

The moment that I'll remember for ages though is shortly after Ellie hits Bill with a pipe, where she just shouts FUCK YOU. For some reason, that's when I made the turn-around and started really liking Ellie as a character (before then she seemed like an average videogame teenager to me).

Everybody's making apocalypse jokes like there's no tomorrow.

...Too soon.

@silence_of_open_sky: I knew going in it was Nolan North but it really sounded like a South Park character.

On a side note after seeing who did whose voices I think this is one of the best voice acted games in a while. I only recognized Bill immediately only because I'm a huge Justified fan and his actor was in an episode.

Still, it's 20 years after the apocalypse. It's not really '' too soon '', isn't it?

I loved it when she would randomly say (Whilst creeping past Stalkers normally) "Fucking face.."

Though, another of my favourite quotes (Not vulgar, but hey ho) After the dam section, you can wander around and all I could hear was "Euuugh, I'm huuuungrryyyyy, next squirrel I see is dead."

I was quoting one of the jokes (and her tongue-in-cheek reaction) Ellie tells with her little book of puns.

After just fucking bashing a dudes skull in and hearing her say something like "...shit Joel" was the best.

After she shoots the hunter trying to drown Joel in the hotel she says, "I shot the hell outta that guy huh". The expression on her face makes it twice as awesome.

Every time she bitterly whispers ''Motherfucker...'' after shanking someone is the greatest. Ellie can throw such a slur around with the best of 'em.

"Let go of me you chicken shit!" is a solid one that's in the Quick Look. The emergent combat moments others mention are great, and I love the rock noises and jokes on the lighter side. I'd have to say watching her play David and break his fucking finger was one of her best, darkest moments.

Ellie. Tell them Ellie is the girl who broke your fucking finger!

Her "oh man"s were more effective than any curse. To me at least.

It's not even a curse but her best quote is "How can he even walk around with that thing?" when talking about the dudes in the gay porn mag.

I like when she starts whistling.

Not a curse word, better than any of the cursing.

I generally find cursing too much to just be obnoxious, which I get is the point and is fine, but it'll never be the reason I like a character. Ellie's jokebook on the other hand made me like her pretty much instantly.
