'''Aventus''': ''"Grelod, you old crone. You'll get what you deserve! The Dark Brotherhood will see to that!"''
When you talk to him and ask if he is all right he will be overjoyed and remark ''"It worked! I knew you'd come, I just knew it!"''
If you have already killed the target, he will be amazed and remark ''"I mean, I knew the Dark Brotherhood was good... just not that good! You killed the old hag before I even asked!"'' After completing his quest, he claims that he's going to be an assassin himself when he grows up: ''"When I grow up, I'm going to be an assassin. That way I can help lots of children, just like you."'' However, in the short term, he decides that he will return to the orphanage: ''"I'll go back to the Orphanage in a while. I'll give them time to, you know... clean up the mess."''
