I preferred the 2000s when we started throwing "quantum" in front of things.

Ghostbusters. Is there any quote that did not come from that movie.

Looks like the Firefly and Serenity quotes haven't been picked up yet!

"Big Damn Heroes"

I'm sure this makes an appearance in Firefly (e.g.
here
), but I'm not sure that's the only source.

"It sure would be nice if we had some grenades, don't you think?"

First read this, then watch
this
.

There may have been a reference to Vera (Jayne's assault rifle) here and there, but I couldn't find a good clip. There must be so many others, too; it's one of the most quotable (and amazing!) shows I've ever seen :)


Also: thanks for explaining the jam quote, I love the first season of Black Books but somehow I'd missed it.

Nobody mentioned "top men" yet?  The line comes at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, was trying to remember it and came across a YouTube clip and was all "oh yeah."  I remember my parents making jokes about it way back when as well.

I have always been fond of "take that" <insert interest group whom you had just offended>
I have always attributed this to the following clips:

Just remember, when you're facing eldritch horrors, make sure Ross' character has the machine gun.

So from the Iron Heroes game... I swear i've heard the reference before but I can't place it.

Grignard the Invinceably Insane.
42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

It's from the Old School Hack game that Ross and Caleb attended in Gencon. Grignard was an NPC suggested by Ross, and the GM rolled with it.

The name Grignr comes from the Eyes of Argon, a classic fantasy epic http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Eye_of_Argon

I cannot believe we are 10 pages in and no-one has mentioned the "dog-punching incident" from Operation Downside. Even though it shows up in an Unspeakable oath actual play not RPPR it would seem to count considering the number of times german shepards and or the attempted punching thereof has shown up in RPPR APs.
P.S. "CRAZY SNAKE HANDS!"
I cast summon pedant.

By the time it was over, dog-punching was my favorite gaming moment ever. SOOOOOoooooooo ridiculous. It made up well over 50% of the entire game's run time.

Batman Begins, also where their fondness for cage rattling comes from.
