Revisiting before accepting Rag and Bone Man[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello there!
  • Player: I was just passing and wondered if you still needed someone to help with the bones.
  • Odd Old Man: Err...
  • Sack: Mumblemumble.
  • Odd Old Man: There is something you could do for me. I'm going to be busy, er...
  • Sack: Mumble.
  • Odd Old Man: Sorting! Yes, busy sorting these bones out ready for the museum. I still need a few more, though.
  • Odd Old Man: Will you help me out?
  • If quest is declined:
    • Player:No.
    • Odd Old Man: Oh, I see.
    • Odd Old Man: Well, never mind me, young man, I'll just stagger over here under my massive burden, and continue my thankless task.
    • Odd Old Man: Unaided and alone...
    • Player:Wow, trying a guilt trip much?
  • If quest is accepted:
    • Player:Yes. I'll give you a hand.
    • Odd Old Man: You will? Excellent!
    • Sack: Sniggersnigger.
    • Player:Where do you need me to dig?
    • Odd Old Man: Dig?
    • Sack: Mumblemumble.
    • Odd Old Man: Oh, you must have got the wrong end of the stick.
    • Odd Old Man: I need some fresh, whole bones to replace ones that have become damaged.
    • Player: What?
    • Odd Old Man: Err...
    • Sack: Mumblemumblemumblemumblemumble. Mumblemumblemumblemumble. Mumble.
    • Player: Excuse me?
    • Sack: Shh!
    • Player:Sorry...
    • Sack: Mumblemumble. Mumblemumblemumble.
    • Odd Old Man: Okay, got it.
    • Odd Old Man: Here's the thing: while sorting out what bones I do have I managed to lose or damage a few. If you can get me some fresh, unbroken bones to use as replacements, then I can get on with things.
    • Odd Old Man: Does that make things clearer?
    • Player:Well, it makes some sense I suppose...
    • Odd Old Man: Great. If you can get me a bone from a goblin, a bear, a big frog, a ram, a unicorn, a monkey, a giant rat and a giant bat, then I'll be able to move on with the, er...
    • Odd Old Man: ...displays.
    • Player:So you just want me to bring you these bones and that will be that?
    • Odd Old Man: Well, I wouldn't mind you boiling them in vinegar first. If you don't mind.
    • Odd Old Man: There is a wine merchant in Draynor called Fortunato who sells the stuff you'll need.
    • Odd Old Man: You can even use my pot boiler if you want.
    • Player: Why do I need to boil them in vinegar?
    • Odd Old Man: It gets them bright and sparkling white...
    • Odd Old Man: It's an archaeologist thing.
    • Odd Old Man: Just put the bone in a pot of vinegar, throw some logs on the fire, put the pot on the boiler, then light the logs.
    • Odd Old Man: It takes a short while for the vinegar to evaporate, but the bone will be nice and clean in the end.
    • Player: Alright, I'll be back later.
    • Odd Old Man: Bye!

With Rag and Bone Man in progress[edit | edit source]

  • Odd Old Man: Have you brought me any bones?
  • Player: Not at the moment. Can you give me a rundown on which bones I have left to get?
  • Odd Old Man: Sure.
  • Sack: Mumblemumble.
  • Odd Old Man: You still need to bring me a goblin bone.
  • Odd Old Man: Goblins are relatively common. In fact, I hear there is a house full of them in Lumbridge.
  • Sack: Mumblemumble.
  • Odd Old Man: You still need to bring me a bear bone.
  • Odd Old Man: I heard that there are some bears over by the Legends' Guild, near Ardougne.
  • Sack: Mumblemumble.
  • Odd Old Man: You still need to bring me a big frog bone.
  • Odd Old Man: This one might be a little tricky. You'll need to go into the Lumbridge Swamp Dungeon. Don't forget to take a light source! Never forget your light source down there.
  • Sack: Mumblemumble.
  • Odd Old Man: You still need to bring me a ram bone.
  • Odd Old Man: I'm sure you will be able to find a ram wherever there are sheep.
  • Sack: Mumblemumble.
  • Odd Old Man: You still need to bring me a unicorn bone.
  • Odd Old Man: I seem to remember seeing some unicorns south of Varrock. I think they might still be there.
  • Sack: Mumblemumble.
  • Odd Old Man: You still need to bring me a monkey bone.
  • Odd Old Man: Monkeys tend to live in jungles, like those on Karamja. I think they are pretty plentiful there, if I remember correctly.
  • Sack: Mumblemumble.
  • Odd Old Man: You still need to bring me a giant rat bone.
  • Odd Old Man: If you can't find one in a sewer, then you might want to try looking in some caves.
  • Sack: Mumblemumble.
  • Odd Old Man: You still need to bring me a giant bat bone.
  • Odd Old Man: Giant bats tend to live underground, but I have heard there are a few near the coal trucks in Kandarin.
  • Odd Old Man: Did you get all that?
  • Player: Yes. I'll get right on it.
  • Sack: Mumblemumble.
  • Odd Old Man: Don't forget to boil them in vinegar first.
  • Odd Old Man: Just chuck some logs into the pit, put the bone in the pot of vinegar and drop it onto the pot boiler. Then light the logs and wait for the the vinegar to boil away.
  • Player: Okay, I'll remember.
