Tag for source material quotation?

Posted under General

Really not sure how to put this, and the many pages of forum results searching for "quote" and "official" daunt me, but is there and/or is there place for a tag of directly-quoted, unaltered dialogue from source materials (with further regards of if context or even who's quoted going into consideration)?

In this instance, I'm looking back at these Toriyama_Akira Dragon_Quest_IV wallpapers, which all quote the English script of the NDS version (broken and/or accented and all).

Because that tag doesn’t exist and pool #1475 is for quotes?

I was suggesting that the new tag to be created be simply called "source_quote". I guess I should have worded it more clearly.

Whatever the tag is called, I think it should also apply to parody works which quote another copyright, e.g. post #1114093

Quoth the Wiki:
Text or dialogue in an image which is a direct quote from a copyright/series.

From the same material, or do quotes from other works count? From the pool linked above, we've got post #399858, post #799825, post #802448, post #847142, post #1046653, post #1062409, and post #1099180 (and probably others I missed).

What about famous quotes from real people not from a series? (e.g. post #203226)

Also, do all images with fansub fit this tag (except maybe parody subs)?

If the second one counts, you may wish to change the tag to quotation instead, since allowing the non-copyright remarks of someone like Shakespeare or St. Augustine would make the notion of a "source" kind of redundant with the definition of a quote or quotation.

If the third one counts, you'll need a tag implication.
