Reexamining DA2: Varric's Friendly Concern

"Listen, as your friend, I feel like I'd be doing you a disservice
if I didn't say something."

Yesterday evening, Cerian went to visit Varric at the Hanged Man as part of the companion quest "Friendly Concern". During their meeting, Varric expressed his reservations concerning Cerian and Anders' new relationship.  This moment produced what is quite possibly the best line to date.  (Please Varric, don't hold back.  Tell us how you really feel!)
"Maybe, just maybe, getting involved with the possessed mage might be dangerous.  There: I've said my piece."  
According to the Dragon Age Wiki, the Varric will say the following if the PC is in a relationship with Fenris.
"You do know the elf is covered in in spikes, like an angsty porcupine? He might have some ... issues."
I also know from past playthroughs that if the player is in a relationship with Merrill, he will say:
"Merrill is a sweet girl , but there's a whole lot of crazy in that little package."
These character judgements are all hilarious, because they are all completely true.  Seriously Bioware, why can't the PC romance Varric?  He's amazing.
