Guess the Flavor Text

What if Dominion cards had flavor text like MTG cards?  I've taken it upon myself to come up with some flavory texty-wexty for some of them - try to guess which card is being described!

1) Whisper in the right ear, and anything can happen. Advisor

2) Give, and ye shall receive.  Poor House

3) My salt-drenched heart grew warm when my eyes beheld the beacon.  Lighthouse

4) This is the best candelabra I've ever seen!  Masterpiece

5) Judging by these very obvious footprints, he probably went... that way.  Scout

6) All that glitters might be gold.  Fool's Gold

7) Might I interest you in our latest model?  Does not go mad and kill you, guaranteed!  Golem

8) Such great power in so small a vessel... but do I wield it, or it wield me?  Relic

9) Get your 100% pure snake oil right here!  Mountebank

10) We are one.  We are many.  You will convert, or die.  Cultist

11) In your future I see both fortune and misfortune... and plenty of gold for me.  Soothsayer

12) You don't want no trouble, do ya?  Goons

13) There is no goal in mind; only progress for progress' sake.  Laboratory

14) Yeah, it's just around back... you didn't bring anyone with you, right?  Shanty Town

15) The nobility must always ride in styleRoyal Carriage

16) Round and round the the dance we go... when we stop, my face I'll show.  Masquerade

17) Hah!  I'd like to see them try to get in here!  Fortress

18) What do I do?  Why, a little of this, a little of that...  Jack of all Trades

19) Not all prices are paid in gold.  Ill-Gotten Gains

20) Pay the toll, or I'll eat you up!  Bridge Troll

pacovf has a neopets account.  It has 999 hours logged.  All his neopets are named "Jessica".  I guess that must be his ex.

I'm saddened that in spite of tradition, #6 is not Moat.

Can you edit the OP to note which ones have been answered?  Because I am too lazy and would like you to do that work for me. ;)

8- Relic     -that's my first guess. Could almost just as easily be Talisman, Amulet, etc

14- Black Market

17- Vault   

At first glance I thought #2 was obviously masquerade, but then I saw it further down.

I guess I didn't realize 2) would be so hard.  AHoppy is on the right track, though.
