After a character had a major traumatic experience, John asked Luna (a telepath) to see what she could do for her.

Luna: "Oh, yeah. It's a real fixer-upper in here (a character's mind)."
John: "Yeah, I can't just take her brain out, put it in the anti-pickle jar, then put it back in her head."

(The anti-pickle jar is a magical jar that, anything inside it regenerates to its ideal status. It didn't have a name until right then.)

--

John: "If you look in my mind--I realize that it's a dank, dark place that requires external lighting."
Luna: "And a chaperone."
John: "Less a chaperone, more a dungeon master."

--

Phoenix: "So, he's half human."
Rose: "Yeah, the left half."

--

John: "At this point, I've seen three different versions of Taxi Driver--It's my litmus test. But, this is the first version with muppets."
Shay: "Oh, that's a classic. They're not muppets, they're legally distinct from muppets."
John: "Nope. Muppets."

--

GM: (Describes how an unconscious person has had half of their face cut and peeled off.)
Phoenix: "Worst facial ever."
Rose: "Give them a break, it was their first day."
Phoenix: "Yeah, they got half-off."

--

Phoenix: "These look . . . Aramaic."
Rose: "That's Jesus-speak, right?"

--

Rose: "Hello, Dr. Martin. This is Blue Rose. I'm here with my team--"
Phoenix: "I'll wave."
Rose: "One of whom is waving--because she doesn't understand how phones work."

Reminded of a Champions game by the Wonder Woman thread in GURPS:

PC: "So, I have enemies in five of my adjacent hexes, all spraying me with SMGs and mostly missing. Is it impolite to ask where all the misses are going?"

GM: "Yes."

Player 1 (playing a good-for-nothing rich kid): "Can I use carousing?"
GM: "I think Merchant is the right skill here."
Player 1: "Can carousing to boost my merchant roll?"
GM: "You may justify your wantonness"
Player 2: "Its all for a good cause."
Player 1: "Yeah, I'm making sacrifices here!"


About an unfinished character:
"Its not 'unnamed', its 'Oo-naw-med'!"

Default Re: Memorable Quotes.

a bit of fooling around in my server as we're trying to get into our characters' heads:

Janessa: "So, uh... Chelsea? I have some good news and some bad news. Which do you want first?"
Chelsea: "Might as well get the bad news out of the way. What did you do?"
Janessa: "Well, I, uh... Well, I warned you not to leave me unsupervised around tech, right?"
Chelsea: "What did you do?!"
Janessa: "Iaccidentallyturnedyourtourbusintoanautobot!"
Chelsea: "Okay but what's the bad news?"

Seriously, though, how does one answer that question, when "accidentally turned the [other PC's] tour bus into a transforming robot" is supposed to be the "bad" news?

The transformation permanently removed the bathroom from the tour bus?

The tour bus's radio only picks up one radio station. And it's random every day, but never anything anyone likes? Any sound system installed suffers the same glitch.

The robot ran away to join the circus.
