Amber: "Here, hold my beer!"
Alé: "What? We're in the [High School] cafeteria! Why do you have a beer?!"
Amber: "For just such emergencies."
Monique: "Don't worry. It's the same beer she's had since sixth-grade. It's never been opened."

Default Re: Memorable Quotes.

Had our first space opera session last night, primarily a meet-and-greet.

Janna: "That can't be good, we need drinks that are more . . . . . more . . . drinks. Muddy Water, that sounds really promising, that's a type of drink"
Lin: "I've had muddy water. It tastes like poop."
Janna: "No no, Kahlua, Cream Liquor, Vodka . . . . mmm . . . " Janna drools a bit as she contemplates, fumbles around for her bottle and takes a very long drink, then slumps over in her chair, "I'm gonna . . . medi . . . meditate . . . " THUD
Lin: "...Are you ever not drunk?"

Lin: "Is that the reason why you're always bugging me to use my berth instead of Pong to sleep in?"
C6 (NPC ship droid): "I have optimized and personalized each of the crew bunks to maximize your comfort. The bunk is even ergonomically situated to mimic the layout of ... of Pong's control station, without the threat of sleep-schedule activation of the weapons in the cargo bay. Again."
Lin: "...I keep telling people that wasn't me."

C6 walks over to Bendak. "Can I interest you in some coffee, Captain? Tea, perhaps? Cocoa? Cyanide... sorry, cider?"
Bendak: "Thanks, C4, I like to pour it myself. I'm old-fashioned that way."

Bendak raises his eyebrows. "Anybody feel like Chinese?"
Terry: "No, I actually don't think I have Chinese in my ancestry Capt'n, granted I haven't done a full genetic breakdown. Why do you ask?"
Terry: ruminates for a second..."Oh you're asking if we want to eat at the restaurant"
Lin: "How is there someone more out of touch with basic communication than me?"

Lin: "Is this a woman who's constantly planning to shoot you?"
Bendak: "No, this is a woman who's constantly trying to gut me with a beam saber. But only when she's feeling charitable."

Bendak: "Our relationship is that she likes to amuse herself by trying to kill me when the opportunity arises."
Nara (NPC): looks confused about this. "That is a very strange relationship. I would hesitate to acknowledge it as such."

Bendak frowns. "A lot of armed toughs outside, I see. Are they yours, or do we need to cut this short?"
Nara: "Why would you think that I would own 'armed toughs'?"

Lin: "Cap'n. ... I require calamari. Does this place have it?" And on comm lines... "Thugs are deferring to a Pondrur." (Note: Pondrur are six-limbed cephalopod aliens in the setting.)

*Lin simply goes to find the squid boy. She makes sure she's looming over him and comrades before she says, "...You have five seconds to agree to bring me ice cream or I'll settle for calamari instead."

GM: The biggest (and presumably meanest) Kronak leaps forward with a swing of his axe at one of the legs. Granted, it's probably a vibro-axe, but the loud CLANG! of the hit without any damage taken tells everyone he forgot to turn it on.
Lin: "...You just scratched Pong's paint." This sounds deadpan.

GM: And we'll leave here for tonight and pick up next time with an actual combat scene. That's probably one-sided with a mech on your side.
Bendak: "That is why we brought the mech!"

"Can Wulf, Ulf and D'von add all their rolls together so they pass?"

"Oh great. I'm a duck."

"Yep, one duck, one goat, one snake, two frogs and an iguana."

"Can we tell who is who by means other than voices?"

"Well, Ulfgar is a very short and stocky goat and certain artifacts remain. Wulfred still has a horned helmet while Ulfgar has horn slots in his helmet. The iguana has a pair of goggles."

"If we hadn't left Lester and Shaggy outside what would they have turned into?"

"Can I still hold my flaming sword in my bill and fly?"

John: "All I've got is a magic bow and a staggeringly under-developed sense of self-preservation."
Lux: "That's more than some of the starter supers have."

That's not how it goes. It goes:

One hen.
One hen, two ducks.
One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese.
One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters.

and on, and on, and on . . ..

It's a reference to this (you tube link).

I heard this eons ago, and it's always stuck with me.

The dragonborn sorceress actually got a decent initiative roll for once, and wanted to use her breath weapon on the undead attacking us.

Sorceress: Let me blow them!
GM: OK, Sandra Bullock.
Three other players: "Away. Blow them away."
