So it occurs to me that we make references during AP episodes that some listeners may not understand. Thus, I am making a thread that will canonically answer every dumb thing we've said over the course of many, many games. Please ask or answer as many references as you can. I'll start

"A Broken Toy for your Broken Home"

Said by: Tom, usually.

Origin: During a playtest of the Road Trip campaign, (The Sentai Rangers chapter) Jason's character broke a toy and returned it to a NPC  while saying "here's a broken toy for your broken home."

You should explain the whole plot and dialogue of Ghostbusters in case someone doesn't get the million references Aaron and Tom make to it.

"I walk between the raindrops."
Everybody uses this one; more of a theme than a catch phrase. I assume stolen from AB3's stories since you guys did that one as an audio play.

"I am so sorry"
Aaron's refrain, usually after doing something highly foolish that makes the game more interesting and followed by the other players saying "No, it's okay".

Actually, sometimes he says it right BEFORE doing one of those things...

"I'll drop you like a wet taco." is still one of my all time favorite quotes. I think it's the imagery of it that really sells it.

"THERE'S MONSTERS IN THE SCHOOL, TOM!"

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.

When someone asks you if you are a god. You say yes

Origin: From Ghost Busters . I first heard it used in the Know Evil campaign when SIROC/Aaron encountered Augustine.  But it has been used a few times since.

"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...

That dam parrot!
Mostly said by Ross.

I believe the phrase is "cum shitters"

Origin, good ol Cody being Cody.
Jumping off diving boards gives you the ability to make your rpg ring with authenticity.

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

Not sure what the origin of this one is.
