    Cobra Kai never dies. Nice Marisha. So in some of the episodes I hear her putting together kick punch knee elbow combos and describing fighting techniques and sequence. And then she gestures the moves and has her hands up, elbows in, shoulders down, chin tucked, eyes gazed, rooted even seated in the chair. ...and I am like, she knows martial arts! Found some Marisha martial arts clips on TVclip. Check it out. Good job M.

    When they animate the Mighty Nein I full expect a random pigeon to be in the background of scenes like this. It can be a "hidden pigeon" type thing where it's even a statue on a shelf behind them.

    Ok a history check here, Rexxentrum is the capital of the empire, yes? And that is assumed to be near or a part of the Zemni Fields? So speaking with a strong accent and even the actual language is mayhaps THE MOST SUSPICIOUS FUCKING THING one might do in Xhorhas, correct?

    Marisha really put her foot in her mouth with the whole “you know like the way you go up to a cop to show them” line. My god how is she even part of this group of talented people. Matt noticed where the stupidity was going and put her on the spot real quick. What a lack of self awareness.

    3:00 Ashley should get a HDYWTDT on Sam's ego.
    16:00 The Nein forgetting about pets? Never happened before!
    20:00 "We spent so much money on something that's gonna eat us someday." So, they became parents...
    25:00 Nott makes sure her kids have their IDs before sending them off to the playground. Mama Bugbear?
    45:00 "Even his advice had abs." Caduceus Clay.
    49:00 Jester finally figures out why Fjord is so puny for a half-orc. The other half is halfling! Logic! Sort of.
    50:00 The two fountains of awkwardness go somewhere together. *Grabs a big bowl of popcorn.* I'm ready.
    1:00:00 Caleb meets Dr. Orctopus.
    1:05:00 Five minutes in, can't wait for Tuss to meet Deuces.
    "Oh hi."
    "That's... That's nice."
    1:08:00 The Nein. Not sure if allied to the Dynasty yet, but they'll help them build weapons of mass destruction. Harmless sidequest!
    1:15:00 Oh, a broken sword blade. Nice...
    1:35:00 They went from trying to avoid attention to flaunting their "The Queen Loves Us" medals everywhere, whenever they can, in less than two days.
    Their Vox Machina is showing.
    1:37:00 Sam is the victim here, people!
    1:39:00 Jester, don't mess with that jeweler! She will cut you. Cutting is part of her job.
    1:46:00 Halfling and Goblin, kinky... I guess there's weirdos for every kink, and kinks for every weirdo.
    1:50:00 Xhorhasian math is weird, what with splitting things into half dozens and eights and sixteens instead of just neatly arranging everything into tens like the Dwendalians (and pretty much the rest of Exandria) do. They likely do it to feel special and better.
    1:51:30 It looks like Sam has a -10 to everything for this episode.
    1:54:50 ... Or maybe not(t) since he kind of Skyrimed some potions away effortlessly.
    2:25:00 Me: "Okay, they're done with the shopping episode, maybe now something will finally happen."
    The Nein: "We need to buy pretty dresses and camping gear!"
    Me: "... Son of a bitch."
    2:30:00 Caleb has a big jar of Senzu Beans.
    2:35:00 Without proper context, what Nott told Jester sounds hot/wrong/kinky/all of those.
    3:10:00 The Nein meet Foreman Bodo. Fjord turned him into Forewimp Bodowned.
    3:26:00 How long has that hobgoblin been a miner? "ELEVEN DAYS!" And how long do they live... Yeah, you guessed it right, eleven days.
    3:42:00 Ashley rolled a one on stralth. The universe is still as we know it.
