Index of Quotes in "All Over Again"
This is my index of intentional references in my stories. Think of it as a kind of bibliography. I have not included references that appear in the Ranma 1/2 series itself, since that could be considered just being in character. If you found them yourself, then great! Also, please note that the sources are entirely from memory, so corrections are more than welcome.
