Well crap, I registered to ask about "there's monsters in the school, Tom" only to come back and find it had just been answered.  So I'll think of another one...

"Fuck his head" springs to mind.

Monsters in the school came from Cody who was basically telling Tom to stop questioning the premise of the game - we were playtesting Curriculum of Conspiracy. The game happened before I was regularly recording games though.

Fuck his head comes from this sound quote http://fuckhishead.ytmnd.com/ which comes from a SA flash Friday.

Following any awkward or stilted RP moment, someone will end the scene with "ROLEPLAYING!"

Not sure what the origin of this one is.

No origin, just putting a lampshade on the awkwardness  http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LampshadeHanging

I don't recall the exact origin but Tom said something that I say somewhat often now.

"HAHA, Jokes about having sex with women!"

Where did the joke true statement that Ross is a horrible monster come from?

I feel like it predates the player mind control debate but I could be wrong.


Also Tom on the Wushu League game.

"I DON'T DRINK!"

1. We are all horrible nerds and so stereotypical nerd jokes are par for the course

2. I think I am a horrible monster comes from the mind control debate - not 100% sure though

3. Tom likes pointing that out. A lot.

Tom will do this thing when someone makes an unfunny joke where he'll fake laugh "HA ha ha, HA ha ha."  Is that from anything?

Not that I think this has a root in anything but I started to us:
"Immerse me!"

This is not a catch phrase but it really should be:
"Yes name all the things for my amusement!"

Also I finally listened to the Unspeakable Oath Actual Plays and now know the origin of Dog Punching which really should be the next RPPR kickstarter. No dog will go unpunched.

"I'm Ernie Hudson. I have Hepatitis  C."

Origin: The unrecorded first game Cody ever played in. This was his character, who would always say this. Ernie sacrificed himself at the end for the group because, you know...

In one version of the story, Ernie Hudson sacrificed himself. In reality, Tom and my character's pushed him through the gate.

From the unrecorded sessions:

"I wipe my blade."

Regarding an orc with no arms, "Cassius takes an attack of opportunity because he's . . . unarmed."

"I send a telegram to him in Yithian." "In Yithian?" "Yeah, pretty much all we use anymore is Yithian." "Fine. The telegraph operator looks at you strangely as he types in a seemingly random series of numbers."
