From yesterdays pre-session for my supers game.

P1 (playing a gadgeteer): I take a coconut, a rock, and (digs around in his pocket) this plasma inducer, and I put them together, and voilla! Fusion grenade!
P2: The coconut is for flavor!

Same campaign:

GM (sleepy): "Wait, you didn't tell me you had to walk away to stay where you are? . ."


Sniper's player, not wanting to pay for her meal at a bar, trying to sneak away: "I'm entering the infiltration!"


Sniper: rolls 18 on a pistol shot. Same roll occurred two sessions ago while she was buffed by my PC.
Me: How could I ever waste my Visualization Blessing on her!?
Sniper's player: That's because your PC angered her gods of war by his herecy!

we were all sitting around waiting on our DM and one of our player was talking about an old game he used to play in.
"we were fighting giant undead vampiric level draining squirrels. It was nuts!"
We all died laughing

I ran a pulp game in which one of the characters was Doc Rocket, The World's First Superhero, who, with his trusty jetpack and raygun, had been adventuring since about 1865 and was 70 when the game started. He was prone to telling rambling-old-geezer stories about his adventures, often in a sort of background monologue while the other characters were doing something entirely unrelated. The player was good at nonsensical improvisation of adventures. At some point the other characters were occupied, and the Doc was rambling, and he said

"And then there was the time I had to wrestle a hippo! You know how to wrestle a hippo, don't you?"

Well, naturally, nobody did, but it was interesting, so we all stopped what we were doing and turned to face the player. I genuinely think he hadn't had anything planned to follow up the first line, but he improvised, without missing a beat:

"You grab him by the ears... and you flip him!"

Beautiful, and in the ensuing decade or so it has become a catchphrase in my group.

I was in an all night GURPS Traveller game at a con a while back and was going through the pre-gen characters. There was the usual assortment of combat gumbies, techies, and such, but the one that caught my eye was a medic with the quirk - tells irrelavent stories. I decided to play him.

Throughout the game, I went off on these tangents and the other players, who apparently didn't look at the quirks, were giving me looks like I was brain damaged. It was one of the best games I've played in.

At one point in the game, we were talking to some people on a space station and we heard growling in the background and the guy on the station said that there were vicious dog-like creatures on board and I started talking about a "purty yeller dog" that I had, but "he got sick, so I had to put him down."

Good times...

Blatantly stealing this from the Transformers movie, because I know it'll be used by someone in my group within the next week.


PC is holding self important hostage.

Self-important hostage begins to threaten PC with dire consequences if he doesn't let him go.... "I'm going to count to five-"

PC pushes barrel of firearm into self-important hostage's chest, "I'm going to count to three!"

Priceless.

We were playing a roleplay based in the age of Pirates.
My brother was playing a insane, almost immortal, sucidal cannoneer.
During a ship to ship battle he fell over board, he climbed back onto the ship soaking wet, heres how the conversation after went (Note: player 1 was female)-

Bro- I'm soaking wet!
Player 1 - Well what do you want us to do about it?
Bro- Pass me a towel.
Player 1 - We don't have one.
Bro- Well then dry me out.
Player 1- How?
Bro- *thinks for a second* Blow me.
