"Oh, right, that's the oldest story in a book. You have a girlfriend, and she's really hot but we can't see her because she's dead. Haven't heard that before." <rolls eyes>

It would have been awesome if Female Clone 2 had also said: “There are those who call me . . . Tim.”

PC1 - "We've done bigger miracles in less time, we'll be fine."
PC2 - "We should save those miracles for the actual fight!"

*pause*

GM, OOC - "Stop talking about your wildcard points in universe."

From yesterday's game I can not name or discuss too much.

"Hey Eric! If we haven't used up our quota of terrible puns for today it occurs to me that the principle space station of the Pearl system is probably named Harbor."

"Okay, as the weird storm threatens our ship the situation is that the pilot is at the controls, the three crystal energy users are poised to use their uncanny powers in defense, the useless aristocrat is taking a shower and the robot has used the 3D printer to cover himself with bubble wrap."

<sings>

"Warm lasers, soft lasers, litle ball of fur"

"Happy lasers, sleepy lasers, purr purr purr."

"What? That's not the emergency weapons system shut down in the manual?"

"Um, if the malfunctioning computer has ejected the aristocrat outside the hull how are we still talking with him?

"He's used his com badge to pin his towel closed."

"We've _got_ to get some bungee cords."

Finally got to game again:

Mark: "I'm tempted to try a beasts/force field build."
Banana: "I heard 'beef force field.' I know that's not what you said.
Chaos: "I need one of those."
Mark: "It's called 'hiding behind a cow.'"

--

GM: "Yes, four people signed Contessa's book."
Contessa: "I think I now have more 'normies' than nazis or lizard men."
Thane: "You call those people 'normies?'"
Contessa: "I'm using air-quotes."

--

GM: "Well, he does now have the fear of God in him. Though that's really the wrong direction."

--

GM: "[Thane] eats about five pounds of peanuts a minute."
Contessa: "It's like barfing, in reverse."

--

GM: "He's got an Apple Soul, you've got an Android Soul-Reader."

--

Maxsen: "Please tell me where would be a safer location for Jasmine. You, regularly, walk into dangerous situations. At least once, uttering the phrase 'yee-haw.'"
Owen: "I didn't."
Thane: "Only once."

--

Thane (OOC): "She just needs something to draw with--let me rip this guy's head off--plenty of paint!"
Owen: "You make a convincing argument."

--

Thane: "I'm going to get as many throwing knives as they'll sell me."
Vendor: "You know, if you're really good at throwing things, you don't want a knife. Let me introduce you to my friend: sticky grenade."
<beat>
Thane (low laughing): "It's not a spider . . .."

--

Contessa: "What's good for an escort mission?"
GM (Laughing): "Not taking the mission."

--

Thane: "Are we going to let her keep talking or can I put her head in her butt?"

--

GM: "Thane! I said roll for damage, not character stats."

If you need an escort through a potentially-dangerous area, the best way to avoid danger is typically to hire an escort that isn't a Player Character. Although if the PC's are in town, you may want to wait until they've moved on, as otherwise you risk being made into a rescue mission instead.

I just ran this through AnyDice - rolling 10 or less on 6d6 is slightly less likely than rolling a 3 on 3d6 - 0.45% vs 0.46%. Wow.
