The Raven's Collected Quotes
Here's something different. Not another movie quote thread, but this time it's time to let that wittiness of fellow raveners shine.

The layout of the game is pretty simple. While checking out the boards, you see a post that contains something in it that should be immortalized, you quote it and post it in this thread.

What exactly then? Something you see worth some extra visibility, as long as it's been posted on the boards and not by you. It could be one sentence in a lengthy rant you find amusing or worth an applause, an especially fitting comment to another member's post, unintentional humor caused by a typo, etc... anything.

I for one love the idea of a "Raven's Greatest Hits" thread. But honestly, I can't remember the last time someone here made me lol, rotfl, lmao, or bwl. But I'm keeping my eyes peeled.

Moedred 01-19-2009 02:36 PM

This made me laugh in 2008.

Find the double entendre.

Finn 01-19-2009 02:46 PM

I thought we agreed to keep from posting our own witticisms, Mordy.

The first one is genuinely funny.

Can't forget the classics:

Was under alot of pressure to do both, and couldn't decide which should come first. So I made a natural decision.

One for the gallery.

What can I say? I am deeply touched that a post of mine made it onto this thread so quickly...maybe I'll get another zinger on here this year!

(Hell, even a broken clock is right twice a day, right?)

Finn the Pfropessor Professor. Teaching everyone how to rightfully use Sam Earch, ay? I love it.

I won't cite my sources, but I am always fond of the "I'm leaving now, I mean it" stuff; followed two weeks later with a "Okay, almost said my final goodbye's...." etc ad nauseam.

Stoo 01-20-2009 10:27 AM

Here's a good one from this thread.:p


Temple is First?

So according to the Lost Journal, Temple is chronologically first in the trilogy...

Or was that a reference to the original purpose of this thread? If so, well... I don't think you need even the old Sammie to find the answer for that.

Gear 01-20-2009 02:07 PM

This greatly amused me a while back:

Better honors have never been uttered
From the "Indy IV as a wrap up of the series", as quoted in "where paths crosses, but never again...." thread

Think of each of the films, each offers a neat range of dead characters:

(1) Forrestal -- imagine Indy somehow being the cause of the competitor's passing
(2) Belloq -- Indy's shadowy near-equal
(3) Abner Ravenwood -- Indy's alienated teacher. Is he dead or not?

Temple of Doom
(1) Wu Han -- Indy's friend who dies assisting Indy. In passing, he happily notes that he goes off on the 'great adventure' first

Last Crusade
(1) Elsa Schneider -- conflicted soul who dies on the verge of grace

After a lifetime of fighting demons (Nazi's and cultists) and patching things up with Dad, what is left but to deal with the demons from the past?

For me, what's key to my theory is (i) Lucas's wrapping-it-up statement, (ii) the larger supernatural element hinted at by Lucas, (iii) the rumor about the past leading ladies being involved, (iv) the acknowledgement that Ford's age is relevant, (v) the desire to tell a different type of story, (vi) the fact that the '50's represent a new modern era and that Indy's 'older' magical world is fading, and (vii) the reality that the '50's don't offer any good villains, so why not some of the old dead ones like Forrestal or Belloq? I could see a story where Indy has to go on a quest into his own past . . . and surprise, perhaps not everyone that we thought dead actually is.

[I've got to hand it to Pale Horse and Deadlock, you guys are like the monks who preserved Western culture during the dark ages keeping this brainstorming going.]

This comeback was pretty funny in the "Psychic Socks" game.

The next poster has ugly black men's dress socks...sorry.

*sigh* I wished I looked that good from behind.... On the bright side, he got the hair right.

Marcus Brody returned home and got lost in his own museum and shortly thereafter starved to death.

Shortround went back to China and became head of the Yakuza, he then returned stateside at the age of 32 and married Willie Scott. They are currently in the Witness Protection Program and Shorty works for geeksquad at a Best Buy in Portland, Oregon.

You'll have to take the Wayback machine to thread 2055 for this one.
A lesson in how to become a mod yourself. :)

And those bloody animals gets what they want, but want to know where they got their food from. And if they get known that, they want to know how it's created. But that's a secret of the cheff 'Higgens, Aaron Higgens'. And a cheff never tells his secret recept.

In response to the ridiculous claim of vulgar content in Last Crusade:

I like the Austrian way better.

Comedy gold.

From one of the raven veterans Lucky Lighter after seeing a picture of me dressed as Lara Croft from this thread...


So, Canyon (Lucky turns on the Raven radio, lights a fire in the fireplace. The sounds of Barry White can softly be heard wafting through the bar's sound system as he leads Canyon to a quiet corner of the bar) So, Canyon, how you doin'? You know, we've known each other for a year now, so when are you coming out to the States, baby?

:D :D :D

The Drifter 03-15-2009 04:21 PM

Zir has some of the funniest quotes this side of Family Guy. One of my favorites by him is this one that was in the What R U eating? thread:


A cherry popsicle. It's painting my lips a whore's rouge.

It'd be a shame to let this one go forgotten.
