Dungeons and Dragons (Sports, Games and Toys)

"You really are a basketball star, aren't you? I mean, I'm not just smacking the ass of some Dungeons and Dragons geek, right?"

Debuting in 1974, Dungeons & Dragons remains the best-known and best-selling role-playing game of all time. Players create fictitious characters who embark upon imaginary adventures and battle many kinds of fictional monsters, gather treasure, and earn experience points. This is all done while acting out scenarios using the voices and mannerisms of their characters. Sounds like Jackie is jealous that Wallace might have been invited to a game but she wasn't.

2.04 "Green-Eyed Monster"

"I think he took Ghost World up to his room. They're probably up there making love. Or playing Dungeons and Dragons. Or both, at the same time."

Ghost World is a 2001 cult film based on a comic book about two outsiders in High School. One of the girls, Enid, is played by Thora Birch, an former child star and actress with more than a passing resemblance to Mac's own performer, Tina Majorino. While fans are still pondering how Dick managed to grasp Ghost World, it seems far less doubtful that he might have played Dungeons and Dragons, the mother of all pen and paper role-playing games — can't you just see him swinging that D20+2 battle axe with orc slayer bonus?
