Ridiculous Nerd Quotes

On Friday, I made the 3/4 block long trek to the HeroClix night at my buddy NinjaStolz's (yes, there are two ninjas in The Doc's life, that I'm aware of at least) with a couple of other guys. The four of us sat on the floor with NinjaStolz's lovely ladyfriend intermittently on the sofa and waged war with comic book miniatures. I always have such a good time playing over there, both for the games and for the ridiculous conversation / dialogue we come up with. After about 10 minutes of our "witty banter", I decided I needed to write down some of the golden nuggets for future reference. What follows is a selection of the transcript. (What follows is for the geek-at-heart only.)

Hal Jordan: Take that, Sinestro! (Shoots Abin Sur.) Abin! What have I done? (Zap.) What have I done again?
Abin Sur: Why did you do that?
Hal: I thought you were Sinestro, okay?
Abin Sur: So you're saying we all look alike to you?
Captain Marvel: It's the Purple Man!
Abin Sur: DAMMIT!

OMAC: Designate Arthur Curry, threat level theta.
Aquaman: THETA!?!

*

SDC Agent: I've got three days 'til retirement!
Abin Sur: In Abin Sur's experience on Earth, you should never say "I've got three days 'til retirement." Also: "Thank God the orphans were okay."

Black Adam: Give my regards to your sister! (Punch.)
Captain Marvel: You've got the wrong guy!

(During the battle against The Spectre.)
Ganthet: Thanos, you are my best friend.
Thanos: Thanos has no friends! Except you Ganthet.
Mike: That's something to make the Green Lantern Corps and the entire Marvel Universe VERY worried.
Ganthet: What? We have a dinner party every month!
Thanos: I bring Lady Death.
Ganthet: I bring The Phantom Stranger.
Thanos: It's very nice.
Ganthet: We have tapas.
Thanos: I brought a casserole.

Rhino: (Brandishing a bookcase.) I got me a shelf full of these paper dvds! (After missing L-Ron with the bookshelf.) Rhino hates Omni-Bot.

She Hulk: The only office work you'll be doing is through a straw!


To be fair, the last game ran a little long, and we were a little punch-drunk. But it was pretty funny to us. My stomach hurt when I left.

while I appreciate my ninjahood being displayed for the world to see, it's actually ninjastolz, and you forgot that "you lose your nipples when you become a ghost"!!! but I'll forgive you.

Fixed the name, but since you brought the ghost nipples, I'll leave those as your contribution.
