Episode 231: The Thin Blue Laser Sword


Many roleplayers like peppering their speech during games with clichés and quotes from various sources. Some even manage to do it while not breaking character. Some topics are more popular than others and lend themselves more easily to non-stop references and joking around.

Woe betide if you should ever run a game involving knights questing for the Holy Grail.


Zam Wessel: Thank goodness I shook those Jedi off. The money from this job will finally pay for my son's splanch transplant.
[SFX]: Thud!
Zam Wessel: Ah, poodoo.
Anakin: You're under arrest for the attempted murder of Senator Amidala!
Zam Wessel: Attempted??
[SFX]: Blam! Blam! {Zam shoots at Anakin}
Anakin: And reckless driving! Set the vehicle down, sir!
Zam Wessel: You'll never take me, Jedi scum!
Anakin: You're just making it harder on yourself.
[SFX]: punch {Anakin stabs into cockpit with his laser sword}
GM: You see the assassin is a woman.
Anakin: Cherchez la femme, huh? Come on, spill the beans. Why'd you do it?
Zam Wessel: Sorry, I've run out of cop show clichés.
Anakin: Just the facts, ma'am.
