The following exchange would certainly fit into this thread. Except Conan actually did say it (according to Tor, who published Conan -
Scourge of the Bloody Coast, by Leonard Carpenter).
“The view of the stars is better here, too,” Conan remarked, drawing her close again and gazing skyward. “Would that my topmast could reach this high when I try to navigate on a foggy evening.”
“I’ll raise your topmast, and I’ll fill your sails for you,” she bragged eluding his grasp and standing upright on the paves. “First, let’s strike some of this extra canvas.” Reaching to the back of her gown, she loosened it and let it slip down around her bare ankles.
“Then stand ready to grapple and board,” he muttered hoarsely, lunging to his feet after her.
Minor rant: As you can imagine, some Conan pastiches are better than others. And you might not know that unlike with most authors, the 'authorized' stories by other writers are considered equal in authenticity with Robert E. Howard's originals.
There are 60 'real' Sherlock Holmes stories; written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. They are the Canon. The thousands of Holmes stories written by other authors are pastiches; unofficial, if you will.
The folks who own Conan, however, say that the dreck written by some of their hand picked authors are just as important as Howard's tales. Even if they don't make sense, like Robert Jordan's novelization of the first Schwarzenneger Conan movie.
