Monster: "Ah, feisty. Let's see what you've got."
Anya: "Beginner's luck."

<Rolls a 3 to-hit on her first attack, with a 16 on the critical hit table, and rolls 21 points of damage on a 4d attack for 42 points of damage. Monster rolls a 17 on it's stunning/knockdown roll. Anya rolls a 5 on her second attack with a skill of 15, with an 8 on the critical hit table, and 22 points of damage. Which was enough to bring it past -1x HP, and the GM rolled an 18.>

Anya (OOC): "Yeah, I'm sticking with 'beginner's luck.'"

PC, explaining recent ruckus to NPC Passenger: "The ghost appears to be dead"
NPC Passenger: "The Ghost is dead, how comforting"

Reminds me of one from a game I was in:

Narrator: Bits of stone, dirt, and gems go flying everywhere
Narrator: The earth elemental is gone
Rehael snatches a splinter of jade out of the air as it flies by. "What a team."
Rhee: Rhee shields her face as she is showered with dirt.
Narrator: A balding man and a chubby woman stick their heads out from around the corner. "Is it dead?"
Rehael: "That's a philosophically interesting q -- yes."

Magic? Call something “magic” and you are saying one of these things:

One. There is something about this we will never understand

Two. There is something about this I don’t want to want to understand because that would make it less special.

Three. While I understand this thing just fine, I don’t want other people to understand it.

Or four. There is something that we once thought we’d never understand and called magic then, and are still calling “magic” out of force of habit.

From this afternoon's Green Madonna session.

"Okay, I'll play this character just because I know a guy named Turnipseed."
<blink>"Well, there goes my little joke about England being covered in
Turnipseeds."

"Hey, Dr Hu......oh god, our doctor is named Who."
"Delayed Action Pun:one hour 15 minutes."

"Ah, that Fusil Ordinaire on your character sheet could turn into the very similar Fusil Buccanniere if you want. It's a pound heavier but does 1 pt more damage."
"No thanks. That would be even harder to pronounce than Fusil Ordinaire."

"Has this person passed beyond his mortal life?"
"He stands before the Yama King."
"That's a strange place for a guy from Ireland to end up."

More of a documentation of how long it took my players to catch that one.

Space Vampire: "There is a far cry between how I feel about you and how I feel about my mother"

Space Vampire:"Why would anyone walk when they can fly?"
GM: "don't you routinely leave tracks on the ceiling?"

Ship AI: "I think they'll give the berth a wide berth"

Space Vampire: "Orchastra, what did we learn?"
Ship AI: "That I should find more expensive criminals to clean me"
Space Vampire: "No! that you don't let strangers clean you!"

Ship AI: "So you are having a conversation I can actually hear" (eg. not telepathically)

Psionic Princess: "He has to talk to me like to talks to everyone else"
GM: "Oh, right, he has to talk to other people normally"

Space Vampire: "Technically he doesn't, but he makes it a practice to actually speak aloud to people"
