    open/close all folders 

    General 

  • Pretty much any time their love for Chie kicks in, especially the anticipation of getting her Social Link up to Rank 10.

    Jeff: Chie's the kind of girl you go out drinking with and SHE gets in a fight.
    Jeff: Alright, if we're going to be hanging out with Chie we need a sedative and some royal jelly.

    • Also how whenever Charlie hugs one of this girlfriends, they pretend that he can only speak in Hulk Speak during it.
  • Anytime anyone says anything that could be even remotely construed as something sexual, one of the guys, usually Vinny, will say "ziiip", indicating that Charlie is in the process of removing his pants.
  • Jeff's love/hate relationship with the localization team. "Look away from the cards!"
  • Various comments from Ryan Davis off mic.

    "You're talking about sex, right?!"
    "That is NOT appropriate."
    "Because the Dutch are cheap."
    "It's called a Prince Albert."
    "Yeah take him from behind!"
    "Nothing stops the money train!"
    "Do you guys need some dog poison?"

  • Anytime the guys impersonate Igor, Morooka, Dojima, Nanako, Kanji or Adachi. Hell, even Rise's!
    • Kanji and Dojima are the best of all of them. Virtually any scene with one of those two talking is sure to have some memorable quip.
    • Impersonations of Igor usually involve slang and profanity.

      "Pull over, we're gonna bury these dead bitches right here outside of town."

  • Vinny's name for the various Personas on the Shuffle Time screen, like "Guy on Fire." This leads to some great out of context quotes:

    "I like Bad Alucard Cosplay."
    "A monkey reading a book? PERFECT!"

  • Any mention of Funky Student and/or the Fox.
  • Every time something awkward happens, they decide it's the end of the game or video. For instance, upon seeing the in-universe preview for Kanji's bathhouse in Part 34, they decide to stop the episode right there.
  • Despite the phrase only being said once or twice by Kanji, they turn "Get bent!" into his catchphrase, sneaking it into a good chunk of his dialogue.
  • A running gag is when Charlie comes home, Vinny has him run over to Nanako and brag about his day and what he did while Nanako was at home. Later replaced with Charlie acting depressed, once Nanako's hospitalized.

    "I just had the biggest steak, too bad your dad isn't around to hear about it."
    "I made out."

  • Repeatedly telling Dave they're going to fight the King every time he passes by, having previously said they were going to do so during the episode he sat in but never actually getting around to it.
  • Whenever they have Adachi call someone a bitch.
  • The Endurance Run even got a mention or two on the Bombcast. One listener wrote in to ask whose party Vinny and Jeff would rather go to: Funky Student's or Mysterious Fox's. They theorize that Fox's party would probably be too good, some "dark shit" would go down there.

    Parts 1- 20

    • Igor has a name, people! And according to Vinny, he's going to "do things to you". And his assistant will "help him do those things to you."

    • Jeff and Vinny's first reaction to Morooka is to ask Charlie to kill him. Then there's their impression of him.

  • Part 4:
    • Jeff and Vinny characterize Dojima as wanting Charlie to score with Chie and Yukiko at once, and he'll watch it on camera.

      Jeff: Don't tell 'em a damn thing! Stop snitching!
      Vinny: Bitches don't snitch!
      Jeff: Snitches get stitches!

      • And joking that Morooka was responsible.

    • Jeff and Vinny meet Funky Student for the first time.
  • Part 15:
    • The main character occasionally has randomly generated dreams with one of his active Social Links if he goes directly to bed at night. Cue Jeff and Vinny getting this gem the very first time it happened to them:

      P4:>You had a dream that you and Chie were wearing luchador masks and wrestling...
      Jeff & Vinny:...
      Jeff:YES, HELL YES!
      Vinny:[laughing] What.
      Jeff: Man, this game knows me a little too well.
      Vinny:[still laughing] What?
      Jeff: Yeeeah.
      P4:>Your relationship with Chie has intensified.
      Vinny:[more laugh]
      Jeff: Effin' a it has, dude.
      Vinny: Ohh, why this isn't a cutscene.
      Jeff: God, I'm gonna sup... I'm gonna suplex that Chie.
      Vinny: Hopefully she had the same dream.

    • Their reaction to Kou declaring that he "looooves them balls".

      Jeff: And, uh, there you go, the end of our Persona 4 Endurance Run. We've reached the end of the game, because it can't get any better than this.
      Vinny: I just want Funky Student to stick his head in and be like...
      Jeff & Vinny: DAAAAAAAAAAMN!

      P4: 'It's time to go home...'
      Vinny: What.
      Jeff: What.
      Vinny: What.
      Jeff: What.

      • It becomes a running gag, with Vinny fearing that any possible activity could take up valuable time, and is especially wary of the capsule machine from then on.
    • Later, Vinny considers spending the second-to-last day before the deadline is up to hang out with Yumi.

      Vinny: We're so close to making out! Yukiko's not gonna give it up!
      Jeff: Dude, she'll die!

      "How come Young Detective comes over for dinner and then sleeps in Mommy's bed?"

      • Which is itself a callback to a running joke started in Giant Bomb's video review of Fallout 3.

    • Vinny decides that Charlie's understanding is not high enough.

      Dojima: I can't tell if you're playing dumb, or if you really are that dense.
      Vinny: Aw man. I don't like living here anymore.

  • Part 32:
    • Ryan joins the guys for this episode, having not paid any attention to the events of the first 31 episodes, leading to much confusion.

      Ryan: This game is teaching you all sorts of F-ed up stuff.

    • The guys introduce Ryan to Chie.

      Ryan: Is this, like, a girl that you have feelings for?
      Vinny: I don't - no.

      Ryan: Jeff, I'm talking to you personally, Jeff, not the character.
      Jeff: ...yes.

    • The background students in Charlie's classroom after the exams are over.

      Jeff: Well you know, they're two words that sound funny together, so I might join one.

    • Their reactions to Yosuke awkwardly asking Charlie which of the two girls in the party (at the time) he preferred.

      Jeff: Give me the controller!

      • They pick Chie, and then feel like the game has locked them into that choice. Then they notice Yosuke's character model focused on Chie the next day. One of them impersonates Yosuke thinking to himself.

      "What does he see in her?"

    • Noting that "Kanji" is both the name of a character in the game and a written form of Japanese: "That's the Japanese equivalent of Alphabet Jones."

    • Kanji's had enough of being followed, and is friends with the fox.

    • The ending.
  • Part 35:

    • Mr. Morooka watching Shadow Kanji's show.
  • Part 39:
    • Jeff and Vinny's confusion with the fictional book's title, Off Today, of the Naughty (actually Timid) Teacher series of books.

      Vinny: You found out all about Mr. Morooka.
      Vinny as Dojima: Charlie! You readin' off up there?!
      Jeff as Charlie:[voice breaking] N-no!

    • Yukiko's Rank 2 scene.
    • Charlie fails to translate correctly, so Yosuke (Jeff) makes fun of him for it the next day. Charlie's hand also kept translating even after the narration said he stopped, implying Charlie's lost all control. But his Expression did increase from 'Rough' to 'Eloquent'.

      Vinny: Eloquent. Hellooo Yukiko. Hellooo Chie.

  • Part 40:
    • The beginning:

      Morooka: Should we halt the class and take a nap, huh? Shape up, losers! Where's your dignity?
      Vinny: Hey, wake up [Jeff]! You fell asleep yesterday, apparently!
      Jeff: Ah! Where's my dignity?

    • Charlie forces Nanako to spend time with him.

    • Summoning Ippon-Datara.

      Jeff: He's either the world's worst dentist or the world's best blacksmith. There's really no difference.

  • Part 44:
    • Vinny draws the Reversed Lovers Arcana, causing more tough Shadows to spawn in the dungeon. Jeff wants him to be more careful, but Vinny insists that he should fight as often as he can. Vinny attacks the next Shadow he sees, and they're the Magi from Part 42. Vinny changes his mind.
  • Part 45:
    • Vinny's reaction to Vetala.
      • Related, both of their reactions to Andra, aka Naked Owl Man:

      Vinny: Dad, put your pants on!

    • The gravity of their decision to play through all of Persona 4 finally dawns on Jeff.

      Vinny: Uh, gold dust. Do we have any more of that?

    • Vinny ignores the stairs once again to level grind with Shadows. He runs into the Magis again, Chie gets enraged and knocked over, Charlie gets reduced to barely any HP, and avoids two strong spells in a row. Vinny asks Jeff if he should use the Vanish Ball to escape.

      "Use the fucking ball, go up the fucking stairs!"

    • Charlie comes home from a long day of dungeon crawling, which entails Yosuke getting knocked out by all kinds of spells:

      Vinny: Well when people are hit by fire spells, and lightning spells, and they throw everything at you...

  • Part 46:
  • Part 47:
    • Seeing Kanji and Shadow Kanji together, Jeff and Vinny put words into Kanji's mouth.

      "... I'm looking at a nude me here, guys. I'm really into it. I don't... really have time to talk right now."

    • Tough Guy runs away after Shadow Kanji is defeated.

      "I just came to party! I'm not so tough, I know they call me Tough Guy, but you know, it's like calling a bald guy 'Curly'! It's Nice Guy you gotta watch out for, he's a dick."

    • Yosuke will bring Kanji home and, if anyone asks, he'll say that he found Kanji "like this". Since Kanji isn't any different, Jeff and Vinny suggest they cover Kanji in crack and alcohol, and remove his pants.
    • The scene with Dojima.
  • Part 48
    • Dave sits in for this episode. Special mention to the scenes where Kanji formally joins the Investigation Team.

      Kanji: So someone's killing people with a TV? What, is he beating them to death?

      Dave: You are a detective!
      Jeff: We're done. Game over. Roll the credits.

    • The entire "Charlie is signed up for health club" scene, but one highlight is when Dave meets Morooka.

    • Or when they walk into the office and see two girls inside

      Jeff: Yeah I'm the doctor, everybody get naked.

    • Charlie eats a frozen banana.

      Vinny as Dojima: Did you just eat that frozen banana? That was a severed penis from the crime lab."

    • Charlie's magic trick, including random black comedy from Vinny.

      "Nanako shot the rubberband into her mouth, choked, and died. Push X to cut up the body before Dojima gets home."

    • The scene in the guys' tent is a gray area for humor in the game. But Jeff and Vinny's commentary make it funny all-around. Especially when Yosuke starts eating Animal Crackers.
    • And this moment:

      Jeff: Yosuke sucks all the way. He messes up everything.
      Yosuke: Ta-da! [whips out swimsuits for the girls]
      Jeff: OH YOSUKE, YOU'RE AWESOME!

    • After Charlie and Yosuke are pushed into the river.

      Jeff: Uh, ever asked the question, "lick it"? Answer's always yes.

  • Part 53:
    • The guys' plan to "protect" Rise from the killer...

      Jeff: We're gonna kill her before she can get kidnapped.
      Vinny: We'll see if that works. Can't kidnap a dead person, right?
      Jeff: Let's out-kill the killer!

    • "I'll try to sound tough, describing tofu. I'm gonna go sewing."
    • Their reaction to Yosuke suggesting that the team buys adult diapers for the stakeout at Rise's place.

    • Titania's Diarama changes into Dekaja, prompting a very angry noise.
  • Part 66:

      Jeff: It's like Mr. Snuffleupagus, but gone horribly wrong.
      Vinny: Through the fly-teleportation-thing.
      Jeff: An elephant got in the teleporter?
      Jeff: It's a coconut... with hair, it's... I don't like this one bit.
      Vinny: It looks like my uncle. I wanna summon that thing.
      Jeff: How did that thing emerge from the sea of my soul? That's what I wanna know.
      Vinny: You've been eating too many Cheetos.
      Jeff: Or not enough Cheetos.

Persona 4: Self Challenge Expert Run!

Pulse

Ground Rules

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, one and all! This is a liveblog detailing a simple self-imposed challenge in Persona 4. Having completed the game on Normal difficulty, I felt the need to tackle Expert! However, there's always baggage when it comes to challenging oneself on a New Game+, as I am doing, mostly to access the extra bosses on this route. As a result I've opted to make use of a simple solution to this problem: I will not abuse the Persona Compendium. I may only summon Personas that I have already obtained through Shuffle Time! or Fusion. I will, admittedly, be taking advantage of my maxed Social Stats (Expression, Understanding, Knowledge, Courage, and Diligence) and a fairly large yen purse from my last playthrough, but I feel that it will not degrade the challenge TOO much. So without further ado, we shall now dive into one year in the life of Yu Narukami, and the strange journey he will have, finding that an innocent sin could lead to the world's eternal punishment...

You should have tried to work "FE Stival" and "Be Your True Mind" into it somehow.

Well this is kinda what I would do as well. I would amp the difficulty up and put in the same rules as well. -nods- Looking forward to this!
