01. Anouncer 1: "The XenaBot is ab-so-lute-ly WAILING on SquattyBot! Nothing can stop the maniacal mechanical Warrior Princess!"
Announcer 2: "Actually, I'm willing to bet that XenaBot gets *taken down* in the next round, facing off against the talking GabbyBot. Nudgenudge, winkwink, know-what-I-mean?"
Announcer 1: "But, dude, they're *robots*!"
Announcer 2: "I knoooooow. Do you suppose it would short circuit them if we were to cover them with oil?"
Announcer 1: "You frighten me."

(from E. Mills)

02. Xena: (while fighting off small squatty robot) "OK, this is the last straw! A Xena and Battlebots crossover?!? C'mon!"
Gabrielle (off screen): "Hey, live with it, the other option was a crossover with 'Andromeda'."
Xena: "Herculeeeees iiiin spaaaaace!"

(from E. Mills)

(from Jen)

08. Excerpt from the Battlebots interview with Gabrielle about her undefeated
"Xena" robot : "...and not only does she, um... I mean 'it', look incredibly lifelike, I can completely control her...uh, it!... through stimulation. Mental! Mental stimulation! Right, mental stimulation, and she'll do whatever I want her to... oh, you mean fighting? Well, yeah, she's good at that, too..."

Biography

Joxer-impaired Spice Marian Pappaceno
Writer
Marian Pappaceno, now a New Yorker after meeting her love on-line in 1992, was raised in the glitter of Las Vegas, which probably contributed to her sideways sense of humor. Always the tough gal, she was happy to play the role of the bad guy with the neighborhood kids, usually as a thief or alien-come-to-conquer-earth. An artist at heart, she draws constantly when not at her job in nuclear medicine. She shares her home with several animals, including a german shepherd who knows how to work the ice machine.
