quote <quote number>

Causes the quote <quote number> as defined by definequote to be displayed on the top of the screen, center aligned. The quote fades out after two seconds. This command requires a context where the player is defined, e.g. it cannot be used in EVENT_LOADACTOR.

Quotes also appear in the console and log file, but when the same quote is displayed multiple times in a row, only the first instance will appear in the console and log. This applies even if the quote has been redefined. To log things for debugging or analysis, consider userquote instead.
