Day 28: What film/series is the most quoted in your group?
This might just be my favorite question of the month.
As I suspect is true of most gaming groups, the Oak Hill Dungeons & Dragons Club mines pop culture frequently and quotes (sometimes lengthy ones) can occur at almost any moment within the game. Picking the most frequently quoted source is a difficult one, because they are so many and varied.
Seinfeld is a common source — “Newman!”, “And you want to be my latex salesman”, “Now I’m driving the bus”, et cetera, ad nauseum.
There’s also plenty of Star Wars and Indiana Jones references.
And, of course, Lost still gets plenty of love at the table.
But I think, the film that tips the scales has got to be Tombstone —
Honorable Mention? While it’s not quoted from as much these days, back in the early years of our gaming we quoted the hell out of a particular film. A bit of a cliché, but true just the same.
