"New" Pickup Lines and Quotes (LCS)
« on: April 12, 2019, 11:09:03 pm »

Since new pickup lines can be added with a text editor, I feel it's time we start writing new pickup lines.  Vanilla LCS has 47.

The format is relatively simple.  One or two line pickup, one line acceptance, two line rejection.  The main concern is to avoid making them too long.  The pickup is two lines of up to 80 characters each, the acceptance is up to 80 characters, and the rejection is up to 80 characters split between the verbal response and the character's action.
e.g.
#
"Roses are red, violets are blue,"
"All my base, are belong to you."
"It's you!!  Somebody set up us the bomb.  Move 'Zig'.  For great justice."
"Hahahahaha!"
 <shakes head>
#
The rejection in game would appear on a single line as something like:
"Hahahahaha!" <shakes head>
(with different coloring, you get the point)


Similar is the quote generated on the title screen.  Here are three I added.

"Now that fat gums up your arteries and goes to your brain and you turn liberal.
[...] Barry Manilow [...] turntable [...] gun control [...]
Do you see the connection?  That's why I eat granola."
-- Sledge Hammer
#
"My friend's name was Megatron and he had [...] three things you should demand
to know of any powerful institution. [...] In whose interest do you exercise
power? [...] To whom are you accountable? [...] How can we get rid of you?"
-- Optimus Prime
#
"Actually, throughout my life, my two
greatest assets have been mental
stability and being, like, really smart."
-- Donald Trump

The first one is from the 1980s, but the other two are from the 2010s.
Go nuts.

Don't have any on me right now, but IIRC if you search "pickup lines" for this board, you'll be able to find some suggested pickup lines that never got implemented.
