Rules of my game


1. Live, Highlander. Grow stronger. Fight another day.

Said to Duncan in "Methos." Silas quotes me in "Revelation 6:8": "We live, we grow stronger, and we fight." Suggested by

2. If the alternative is unthinkable, don't think about it — do something about it.

"The alternative is unthinkable," said twice in "Timeless." Suggested by

3. Look out for number one.

"Look at me, MacLeod. I didn't last 5000 years by worrying about anyone but myself" from "Chivalry." Suggested by

4. Know what you want.

"I am Methos. You live to serve me. Never forget that" from "Comes a Horseman." Suggested by

5. Stay out of other people's business, and they'll stay out of yours.

"If I start questioning people, sooner or later one of them starts questioning me" from "Judgment Day." Suggested by

6. Always go with the winner.

"Like you said, I go with the winner" from "Revelation 6:8." Suggested by

7. Never tell the truth! And when you do, never tell more than what is needed.

"Why would I tell the truth?" from "Finalé Part 1," and also "Would I lie to you?" to which Kronos replied, "Have you ever done anything else?" from "Revelation 6:8." Suggested by

8. Trust no one.

"You don't trust anybody, do you?" "I find it safer not to make a habit of it, no." from "Through a Glass Darkly." Suggested by

9. Know when to disappear.

"I may not know who Chubby Checker is, but I know when it's time to disappear" from "Comes a Horseman," and also "If they carry a sword and I haven't been formally introduced, I get shy" from "The Valkyrie." Suggested by

10. When you don't have time to think — improvise.

"I wasn't thinking, I was improvising" from "Finalé Part 1" Suggested by

11. If another immortal is unstable or a threat to you in any way, "lure him outside and take his head. Problem solved."

From "Through a Glass Darkly." Suggested by

12. When you have to fight, make sure it's a "nice day for it... not too cold... the ground's nice and dry."

From "Forgive Us Our Trespasses." Suggested by

13. If it can go either way, don't take the chance.

"It could have gone either way, I couldn't take the chance" from "Comes A Horseman," and "Because I didn't know if you could beat him. It was a chance I couldn't take" from "Methos." Suggested by

14. Show mercy occasionally, but not predictably.

"He doesn't take heads on Tuesdays" from "Forgive Us Our Trespasses." Suggested by

15. No one else can fight your battles for you. You can, of course, decide to fight their battles for them. Whether they like it or not.

"You cannot fight my battles for me" from "Methos," contrasted with "Forgive Us Our Trespasses." Suggested by

16. Sometimes the best way to solve problems is to avoid them.

"You need a vacation. I hear New Zealand is very nice this time of year" from "Judgment Day," and "Really guys, the time has come for you two to start a new life somewhere. Bora Bora is very nice this time of year" from "One Minute to Midnight." Suggested by

17. Never sleep naked, because you may have to then fight naked.

From "Forgive Us Our Trespasses." Suggested by
