What six FICTIONAL people would you invite to dinner?

In no particular order, and subject to change:

  1. Dr. John H. Watson
  2. Dot (Sunday in the Park with George)
  3. Dr. Henry Jekyll
  4. Circe Berman (Vonnegut’s Bluebeard)
  5. – this space left empty for a potential drop-in – (they are often more interesting than invited guests)
  6. Jessica Fletcher (Murder, She Wrote), because she’s intelligent, warm, friendly and would probably speak to me even if the others wouldn’t.

Homer Simpson
Invader Zim
Strong Bad of Homestar Runner fame
Johnny Bravo
Patrick Star of SpongeBob Squarepants fame

A veritable Alagonqin Round Table of idiots, maniacs, and people who just plain make me laugh.

  1. Spike Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  2. Spike Cowboy Bebop
  3. Rhett Butler Gone with the Wind
  4. Lorne Angel
  5. Mr. Spock.
  6. Jean-Luc Picard.

From Callahan’s:

  1. Mike Callahan
  2. Doc Webster
  3. Jake

From elsewhere:
4) Gandalf (the Grey)
5) Jame (from Godstalk)
6) Kerowyn (from Lackey’s Valdemar novels)

I figure there’s no way the conversation could fail to be fascinating, not to mention entertaining. Of course, if Jame showed up, I would probably fall in love with her and soon die a horrible death…

  1. Gandalf
  2. Dumbledore
  3. Dr. Strange
  4. Adam Warlock
  5. Captain Marvel(Genis-vell, insane)
  6. Thor (Marvel, Lord of Asgard)

It would be quite a meal. I would love to see the three sorcerors/wizards try to out-do each other.

Leto Atreides II (before he fell)
Death of the Endless
Darl Bundren (pre-train ride)
David Bowman aka The Starchild
Gandalf (grey or white, either is fine)
Randle Patrick McMurphy

  1. Whatever character Kirsten Dunst played in Spiderman
  2. Whatever character Kirsten Dunst played in Bring it On
  3. Yoda
  4. Maaaaaaaaaatlock
  5. Any other characters Kirsten Dunst has played
  6. Groundskeeper Willie

Paul Atreides (Frank Herbert)
Jubal Harshaw (Robert Heinlein)
Ragnar Danneskjold (Ayn Rand)
Spike Siegel (Cowboy Bebop)
Auron (Final Fantasy X)
Friday (Robert Heinlein again)

I just have to ask Rubystreak since you mentioned Leto Atreides II before the fall. YOu mean McMurphy before the lobotomy right/:wink:

All the dwarves but Sleepy.

  1. Dr. Frankenstein (Frankenstein)
  2. Captain Benjamin “Hawkeye” Pierce (MASH*)
  3. Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)
  4. Trinity (The Matrix —kick ass movie)
  5. Alan Parrish (older version, with Robin Williams intact, Jumanji)
  6. Father Andrew Kiernan (Stigmata)

I think the conversation between #6 and #1 would be cool. #4 and #3, too. They’re both big-gun-and-black-leather women.:smiley:

Thinking about characters that would make for a lively party

  1. Austin Powers
  2. Moll Flanders
  3. Jerry Cornelius (Michael Moorcock)
  4. Father Xmas
  5. Cat Ballou
  6. Barbarella

Cheers, Bippy

Cecil… wait… nevermind.

  1. Phoebe Bouffee
  2. Monica Geller
  3. Ross Geller
  4. Rachel Green
  5. Joey Tribbiani
  6. Chandler Bing.
  1. Gandalf
  2. Dumbledore
  3. Lazarus Long (so I could bash his head in with a stick)
  4. Leto Atreides (I)
  5. Spike (BtVS)
  6. Zaphod Beeblebrox

After I killed Lazarus, no. 3 would be Q, Judi Dench version.

  1. Vlad Taltos (Jhereg, Yendi, et al)–especially if I could get him to cook!
  2. DEATH (from Discworld)
  3. Val Con yos’Phelium (Partners in Necessity, et al)
  4. Jess Custer (Preacher)
  5. Han Solo
  6. Taylor Greer (The Bean Trees)

[li]David Addison (from TV’s Moonlighting)[/li][li]Murphy Brown[/li][li]Jean-Luc Picard[/li][li]Nero Wolfe[/li][li]Archie Goodwin (Nero Wolfe’s right-hand man)[/li][li]Kelly Bundy (just for the window dressing)[/li][/list=1]

[li]Fox Mulder[/li][li]Hannibal Lecter[/li][li]Kilgore Trout[/li][li]The main character from Memento[/li][li]Hiro Protagonist (Neil Stephenson)[/li][li]Crow T. Robot (Mystery Science Theater 3000)[/li][/list=1]

Should make for an interesting meal, one way or another.

These threads are not very interesting if virtually no one supplies reasons for their choices.

I would invite Hannibal Lector to see who else he invited.
(And I’d bring a sandwich.)
