Didn't happen in game, but during character creation:

Player: "Hey, can I waterboard a demon with holy water?"
Me: "Errr . . . ummm . . . yes."
Player: "What skill do I use? Interrogation?"
Me: "Yes. You're going to be trouble, aren't you?"
Player: "I can do this with vampires too . . ."
Me: *sigh* "What can of worms have I opened . . ."
Player: "I'm JACK BAUER, [expletive deleted]."

That last line really ought to have been "I'm the Reverend Jack Bauer, [female dog]!"

I'll tell the player. They will be amused.

It's been a good while since I've run anything with my own Sweet Thing. We've both been too busy to kill monsters. We seriously need to remedy that.

Okay, this is one from an old, old Teenagers From Outer Space campaign I ran way back when I lived in Darkest Iowa. One of the NPC's was Rivalsan Lendo, heir to a powerful ninja clan/multinational corporation from the comic book NINJA HIGH SCHOOL (and based himself on characters like Shutaro Mendou from URUSEI YATSURA and Kuno from RANMA 1/2. He was an arrogant jerk, and prone to overly dramatic declarations.

At the beginning of one session, I had Lendo stride into the Sakura Inn, the local sushi/ice cream parlor, (doesn't every town have one?), strike a dramatic pose at the counter and declaim:

"I want a chocolate shake.
I want a chocolate shake as deep as my sorrow.
I want a chocolate shake as thick as my despair.
I want a chocolate shake as cold as a maiden's heart.
And a straw."


Lendo, you see, had an unrequited passion for one of the PCs, Ranma Satome, (unaware of the fact that Ranma is only a girl half the time). Another of the PCs had a crush on Lendo which was also unrequited because Lendo was an oblivious jerk.

I can no longer remember exactly how that particular session went down, although there were undoubtedly the typical misunderstandings, confusions, old situations, new complications, etc.

But I remember how the session ended. Lendo managed to end up the goat, and to anger pretty much everybody -- especially the PC who liked him, or did.

At the end of the adventure, she stormed up to the counter of the Sakura Inn and said:

"I WANT A CHOCOLATE SHAKE.
I WANT A CHOCOLATE SHAKE AS DEEP AS MY RAGE.
I WANT A CHOCOLATE SHAKE AS COLD AS MY FURY.
I WANT A CHOCOLATE SHAKE AS THICK AS A BOY'S HEAD!!!"

We are in a room where there are monsters walking on the walls and ceiling in defiance of gravity. Player 1 contemplates using a Shattershot arrow, which delves deep into GURPS' fragmentation rules and the question of exactly what range is everyone from everyone.

GM: "Please, don't."
Player 2: "Don't punish the GM for designing the Death Cube"

GM : ...and so as you attempt to question your informant a poisoned crossbow bolt apparently shot from a roof across the street strikes his chest. What do you do?

PC1: I cast Neutralize Poison!

PC2: I run across the street and cast Spider Climb!

PC3: I cast Fly and rise above the rooftops!

PC4: I grab the two fighters and cast Dimension Door!

GM: Hmm. The module does not seem to have anticipated these responses.

(somewhat later)

Assassin: You mentioned ale?

If anyone wonders, after we brought the informant _and_ the assassin back from the brink of death we hired both of them. The module does not seem to have anticipated that either. :)

A few from the Denizens of the Dark Horde game over on the Gurps Discord

The berserker stops biting your knuckles on the second punch.

*The dwarf tries the Headbutt of defense

After some intense concentration and the use of all fingers and one leg Cecryn manages to* count the remaining door. He heads towards it determined to open it so it doesn't feel left out.

After throwing one of PCs (a kobold) at the top of a tower

*"Melor moves out of the rain of stones and watches the progress of the Kobold aerospace project"

*"I hit the tower so hard with my kobold missile a dwarf fell out!"
