Ok...this post has turned out to be longer than what I thought it would be. Oh, well, if it's too much for you to read...you're probably not a real geek...
One thing that came to mind while listening to this part of the episode was the Borderlands 2 Tiny Tina DLC, the context of the entire DLC is it is a RPG being run by Tiny Tina for the other characters in BL2. Mr Torgue wants to join in, and Lilith gives him a hard time because he isn't a typical geek and wants him to prove that he is a real geek before he can join in.
