Pgraph doing Impromatic yesterday and Roy opens the window section of the stage and says (essentially): "I'm in the window!"

And everyone doubletakes at the the picture and sure enough, he's in the window, just really hard to see. :D

Here's the picture:

At the top of the show, this is the image we got. We start it out with Kareem, Val, and I onstage playing through it. About a minute or two into the scene Roy opens the window and says, "I just realized I was here!"

And from that point he aptly became the protagonist of our story.

I loved that moment so much that I recounted the whole thing to 3 non-improvisers who weren't even there. I can't say that my retelling captured just how awesome it was, but they still laughed out loud. :)

I vote for Jesse Bertron in Showdown Episode one, when it was implied that his pus rotted tooth was caused by seeing whores, "It twern't pussy!"

from Showdown episode 1:

(Fancy reports back to Clement on her questioning of Doc Parrish)

Clay: Why were his hands on your pussy?
Julie: So I could tell if he was lying!

(and of course my favorite line of the night, as Doc Parrish examines Fancy and Fancy questions the Doc as the tension is building and building and no one's saying what they really mean...)

Jason: Cough.

Kaci: Hey sexy lady, come sit on my lap like the Christmas man!


I was so glad the scene ended there because that line broke me.

Jason Vines: "We've been friends for a long time, Clement."
Clay Towery: "Friend's a strong word..."
Jason Vines: "In a town like Showdown, friend's just a word for someone who ain't killed you."
Clay Towery: "Day's not over yet..."

Mike, from the sideline in IFE show:

'Come back to da sea!' in a perfect Sebastion the crab voice, in response to Mo saying the sea was calling her back home.

One of the best moments of simultaneous audience eruption in laughter I've seen in a while.

(Also note that Clay's character burst into unsettling laughter before saying that last line.)

It makes no sense. These people should not be in the same room, let alone the same team. That, to me, is the definition of family.

also from episode 4...

(Jason Vines is playing Jacob, Sam Houston's driver and bodyguard. he has just referred to Showdown as the "asshole" of Texas before two would-be highwaymen try to rob the coach. Jason shoots them both then continues driving. Houston asks what the commotion was.)

Jason: "Just a coupla pieces of shit fell out the asshole, sir."
