Al Lowe interview with Rosella in Larry's Women Speaks from The Official Book of Leisure Suit Larry. Also contains random references to Rosella from other sections of the book.
Interview[edit | edit source]
Al Lowe: Hello?... Royal Summer Palace?... Princess Rosella, please... I'm calling from Fresno, California, USA, Earth... Thank you for your sympathy... No, I don't want to move. Could you just call her to the phone, please?
Al Lowe: Princess Rosella, this is Al Lowe.
Al Lowe: Er, yes. My question, Your Highness, is about Larry; Larry Laffer.
Al Lowe: Leisure Suit Larry. You've made guest appearances in a couple of his computer games.
Al Lowe: What do you think of him?
Al Lowe: Sigh. Leisuire Suit Larry.
Rosella: You're not from around here, are you?
Al Lowe: Er, no. I live in Fresno.
Al Lowe: Well, yes. Thank you. What is it?
Al Lowe: Hello? Hello?
Hmmm. I think we now have enough comments to give us a reasonably accurate picture of Larry's true luck with the ladies. It's pretty much a cinch that he'll never be asked to costar in a King's Quest game with Rosella, or to move back in with either Eve or Kalalau.
Other Material[edit | edit source]
Rosella is referenced in several sections of the book here are other excerpts:
From the Design of Larry 2:[edit | edit source]
"I had enough fun putting Princess Rosella from King's Quest IV in the barber shop and getting it past Roberta.
"I thought she looked familiar. I met her at the Sierra On-line Christmas party." Roberta?
"Nah, she won't speak to me. Rosella."
Don't blame her..."
From Leisure Suit Larry on How to Pick Up Chicks:[edit | edit source]
"However, as one of Princess Rosella's friends told me a couple of weeks ago, "Once a king, always a king, but once a night's enough."
From the section about the Airport (LSL2):[edit | edit source]
"...yes, that barber is Princess Rosella. We've already discussed that.
"Cute chick, but a royal pain to try and date."
She'll fix up your appearance, and you will find it to be a real tonic."
Then on the section about Coarsegold (LSL3):[edit | edit source]
"...you'll find Princess Rosella busily filming a scene."
Quiz[edit | edit source]
"The barber at the Airport in Larry 2 resembles Princess Rosella in King's Quest IV."
Humor[edit | edit source]
"...all those characters around down there are from other games. Sir Graham is one of them, and the dragon from King's Quest II, I think, and Roberta Williams is one of the people in the white coats."
