Spellbinder: "HEY MEATSHIELD WANNA GO FIGHT A GIANT ROBOT?!?" Say, she sounds excited.
Meatshield: "Giant robot? GIANT ROBOT?! HELL YEAH! GIANT ROBOT! Is it Japanese?"


Princess Bolshivek: "If it's Soviet, there's no electronics in it. Soviets do not believe in things not fixable with sticks and stones."
Starbot: "It is rather difficult to produce eye beams with mechanics."
Princess Bolshivek: "You'd be surprised what hamsters on wheels can do."


Spellbinder: "By the sacred Vishanti and the orbs of Valtam, the Seraphim's Shield is totally my jam!"
Meatshield: <ooc> Does your Sorcerer Supreme know you use that kind of language, young lady?! No Black Sabbath for a week!


Meatshield: (as he tears away at the guts of the giant robot) "Welcome to the machine!"
Spellbinder: "Actually, I think you should welcome the parts you removed to *outside* the machine."


Spellbinder: "By the cakes of Hostess and the crackers Saltine, I'll weld your neck stiff with the Flames of Faltine!"


Giant Robot: "LIBERATION ... FAILED. CANNOT .... CONTACT OTHER .... LIBERATORS. CAPITALISM ... HAS BEEN ... OUTLAWED. MISSILE ... LAUNCH ... IN TEN ... MINUTES. HAIL ... HY...DRA."


Spellbinder, after Ana introduces herself to the press: "Well so much for getting us all positive press."
Princess Bolshivek: "I'm the princess of Bolshiveks, Chelsea. That *has* to be the most inane thing anyone's ever heard, right?"
Spellbinder: "Ana, a giant robot with eye lasers just got taken down by an alien, a wizard, a girl who turns i to a jet plane, and a girl with a gun. When put next to that, nothing seems too far-fetched to be real."


Meatshield: "You're the same Namora that slapped Mussolini upside the head with a marlin?"


* Meatshield snerks at those names ("Nagino" and "Nagina"). "Seriously? Themed names? That's straight out of a comic book."

James: “What is my danger sense saying about all this?”
GM: “Nothing. It’s left.”
James: “We are in lots of trouble. My danger sense has left my brain like rats fleeing a sinking ship.”

--

Momo: “I can be anyone you want me to be.”
James: “To thine own self, be true.”

--

James: “How do you connect with an ancient, soulless robotic echo of someone gone for eons?”
Momo: *Yawns* “Bo-oo-oo-oo-ring!”
James: “Yes, what part of ‘ancient, soulless, robotic echo’ sounded fun?”
Momo: “I look forward to seeing what you come up with!”

--

James: “It’s over.”
One-Eye: “Duty is all that’s left.”
James: “No. Duty is all you have left from dead masters that have been gone for epochs of time. You have guarded this prison for untold eons. You are the last. All your long-gone masters have given you is a duty that you cannot complete. I give you something that they took from you, back during the first time. Reach back in your mind. Search your memories for what it was like to feel something. To feel sorrow. To feel pride. To feel . . . tired.”
One-Eye: “There is only Duty.”
James: “Your duty is done. Everything you have stood for, everything you have done, is over. It has been for millennia. Your time is past. I give you the choice, to continue on, a little longer, living out the duty of ancient, dead master. Or, lay down your weapons. Lay down and go quietly into the peaceful oblivion that awaits you. Go into it, knowing, at the last moment, you did so because you wanted to. Because, you were given a choice, and it was your decision to do, not what you were ordered, but what you desired. Let the last moment be not one of struggle, but one of peace. At long last, your duty is fulfilled, and you may rest.”

--

James: “May you find the peace in the next life that you were denied in this one.”

--

James: “You should ride with Lux, she’ll be more fun to mess with.”
Momo: (loud whispering) “I want to ride with you because that will mess with her.”
James: (loud whispering) “Yes, but I want to live!”
Lux: “You do know you’re not really whispering!”

--

James: “I’ll stow the Warscythe, and get Momo and I strapped in for the trip back to the Infinity.”
GM: “Remember those manipulator arms? That’s really the only way to stow the Warscythe, there really isn’t room inside.”
James: “So . . . my fighter is now wielding the Warscythe? AWESOME!
Hana (not there, OOC): “THAT’S NOT WHAT [those arms are] FOR!”
James: (OOC) “You put arms on my fighter! OF COURSE I’m going to try to melee with them!”

"Lieutenant, is it normal protocol for your navy to detail an officer to dance with flags during a battle? Is it a religious function?"

"It's a mating ritual, the captain is put out that you're no longer docked."

Not game related, but...

I was involved in some youth activity and pretty much just goofing around and being a distraction when one of the other adults turns to be and complains bout my not helping to which I reply, "As Windyon Churchhill said, "If you can't be useful, be entertaining.""

I have been attributing that to Winston Churchhill for decades now, but it's actually my quote.

In yesterday's horror game (Cthulhu by Gaslight, without the Mythos) the poem "The Doom-Bar" was a significant clue.

John: It's better than McGonagall.
Marcus: That really is praising with faint damns.

The Infinite Cabal party are assessing the relative influence in Atlantis of the Twelve Olympians.

GM: ... Athena is a 1 and Aphrodite is about 7.
Aphrodite: I'm a 10!
