I'm not so sure of putting the player's face in dialog boxes. I have the feeling many authors wouldn't take enough care to make sure that the player-dialog is neutral enough. I, at least, would be put off by my character saying things he usually wouldn't say.
I'm on this boat, some times I'll run into things that I would never say squished into the tiny response button.

What I've done is put an implicit response on the button.

So instead of "Show me the money" I have "Demand the money"

This way it allows the players to imagine how they want to word the response but still keep the story going the way I want it to. I've only had one complaint about it so far so I think it's working.
