Arinbjörn segir: ‘Engi maður mun Eirík kalla að meira mann, þó að hann drepi einn bóndason útlendan, þann er gengið hefir á vald hans. En ef hann vill miklast af þessu, þá skal eg það veita honum, að þessi tíðindi skulu heldur þykja frásagnarverð, því að við Egill munum nú veitast að, svo að jafnsnemma skal okkur mæta báðum. Muntu, konungur, þá dýrt kaupa líf Egils, um það er vér erum allir að velli lagðir, eg og sveitungar mínir; myndi mig annars vara af yður, en þú myndir mig vilja leggja heldur að jörðu en láta mig þiggja líf eins manns, er eg bið.’
