I might have told this one before. What the hey; it's a good one.

In a SF game set in a Cynosure-like setting, I played a Lupin-esque master thief. My wacky brother Steeve played Raven, a biker whose motorcycle transformed into power armor and his friend Joe played his sidekick, an anthropomorphic android dog named "Hellhound"

Our group was infiltrating an office building and had finally reached the top floor, where the McGuffin awaited. The GM told us that we saw two doors. I picked one and the GM said, "You see white tile... it's the Ladies' Room."

Annoyed, I said "Fine. Then I check the other door."

This puzzled Joe. "Why is he bothering with the other door? It's bound to be just the Men's Room."

"Because He Feels the Need," Steeve explained in his best Gary Owen voice. "It's a biological thing, Hellhound; you wouldn't understand."

Raven and Hellhound quickly became known in that campaign as Blue Falcon and Dynomutt.

On a related tangent, heard this one at Akon (anime con in Dallas,TX) a few years back......

"You have the most beautiful breasts I've ever seen......what do you MEAN you're only fourteen?!?!?"

When looking at a four armed creature, that's just been described as mummified.

"Does he look a bit undead?"

There has been a few in some of the games I have been in that I still have.

You're here for a rescue mission? - Will
We got distracted - Andy
What were you here originally for? - Will
To rent a video tape - Andy
(will missed the previous game and was IC finding out what happened)

(While entering a abandoned Industrial park)
She probably knows she's in trouble right now - Jake
She's twelve, she probably thinks it's cool - Mia
(Follows the others in) Kewl - Andy

Aw c'mon, it was a cheap shot - Andy
You don't understand how fighting works, do you? - Mia

I hired you because you're honest. - Morgan
Yeah. That gets me in trouble all the time. - Jake

If he comes in and tries to gun everyone down, we know we shouldn't hire him. - Jake

A back-and-forth with another player's designated enemy. (He looks like the hunter from Jumanji) The gunpoint exchange went something like this.

The Italian Stalion: Where is he?
Raymond: Who are you?
TIS: ...I'm not one to give my name.
Ray: I can't let you kill my friend.
TIS: Who are you?
Ray: ...There are some who call me ...Tim? (Group laughter)
Gm: Are you serious?
Me: ...well yeah, I am now.
TIS: I'm here to kill him.
Ray: And I can't let that happen.
TIS: Step aside or die.
Ray: I'm not one to die.
TIS: Nor am I.
Ray: -I pause thinking of anything to say-....S....Something..witty. -eyeballs the GM-
Gm: Are you serious? You're saying that out loud?
Me: Yes.

I was Raymonding it up in the best 'badass' my voice could muster,

This was a fantasy campaign, we were rummaging through a mage's tower and had just found is alchemy lab. Conversation between Timotheo, the stage magician and Arden the battle mage:

Tim: Hey, look I found a healing potion.
Arden: That ain't no healing potion this is a mana potion.
Tim: You are right healing potion are of just slightly diffrent shade of green.

(Both character rolling against alchemy at default and none of them really knew what sort of potion it was, but kept debating just to impress the other characters)

Said by an indignant xenoarchaeologist in last night's game, interrupting her fiancé and her father talking about her job, "I do not dig up dead people! I study cultural artifacts."

In my current Victorian Era Horror campaign, our group's resident mad scientist Dr. Adam Clay, ("No! I really am a doctor! Of Mathematics!"), has a goal of resurrecting the dead. Over several sessions, he gradually invented or acquired the elements he'd need to do this and finally reached the experimentation stage.

He ordered his NPC hunchbacked assistant Steve ("Yesss, Doctor!") to acquire some dead rats to test his process on. Steve returned with a couple cages, one with dead rats, one with live ones. "Just in case you need them," Steve helpfully explained.

"They weren't poisoned, were they?" Clay was concerned that any toxins in the rats' bodies might interfere with the resurrection process.

"Oh no, Doctor! I got some teeny-tiny pillows and smothered 'em!"

I suppose it says something about my campaigns that I frequently hear my players say, "Well, there's something you don't see every day."
