On Tinker Knight:

"Mary Sweets: I find Tinker Knight so fascinating! I'd love to talk about literature with him! ....Or about love poetry with you!"

On Plague Knight:

"Mary Sweets: Plague Knight, what a cutie! I love his little mask! Is that a bird? A mosquito? All I know is I've been bitten by the love bug, Shovel Knight."

On Mole Knight:

"Mary Sweets: Mole Knight, hmmmm. I might fancy him, if he weren't so dirty all the time! You're the only one I really dig, though."

On Treasure Knight:

"Mary Sweets: Treasure Knight. Well, he's a breadwinner, I suppose, at the very least. But I only feel truly rich when I see you, Shovel Knight."

On Specter Knight:

"Mary Sweets: I could just DIE for Specter Knight! Have you seen him? He's handsome! Not nearly as handsome as you, though."

On Polar Knight:

"Mary Sweets: I've never met Polar Knight, but he seems like the strong, silent type. That's hot! It would be a cold day without you here, though, blue boy."

On Black Knight:

"Mary Sweets: Black Knight? Hmmmmm, mysterious! I'd love to see what was under that helmet! But I bet you're still stronger, under all that armor."

On Propelle Knight:

"Mary Sweets: Propeller Knight, now there's a guy who knows how to treat his fans. But you're the one who REALLY BLOWS ME AWAY, Shovel Knight."

On King Knight:

"Mary Sweets: Oh, that King Knight, HE'S SO REGAL! Such a refined fashion sense! But honestly, I'd rather be YOUR queen."
