XYZZY Responses[top] [menu]

Are you ready for this? This is a collection of responses to XYZZY in a multitude of parser-based works of interactive fiction. Although XYZZY is usually just an optional magic word with a silly quip behind it, sometimes it does do something useful... which means there are some spoilers, but for the most part they're fairly minor. Especially since I'm not giving any context, apart from the works' names.

If the spoiler isn't minor, I've masked the quote by rendered it in light gray on light gray. To read a spoiler, select the gray area(s) with your mouse.
