Just a suggestion... could we eliminate the Baker's Wife? She cleaned up house last time, so let's even the playing field a bit.

Okay. Thanks for that completely unnecessary condescending statement. It really makes my day to come home from exams and to find out that an adult who can't even use proper grammar has decided to come and insult my choices and opinions. Thank you. So much.

We've already established that Baker's Wife is the most popular role in ItW, according to the members here. So we're playing this "stupid game" to see what other characters people enjoy BESIDES Baker's Wife. I agree with you: the Baker's Wife is a great role, and any person who can pull her off is certainly deserving of praise...but there are tons of characters in this show, not just her. BW killed the others last time with like...138, I think it was? Now that's just a tad overkill, so we thought it would be good to level the playing field by getting rid of the character whom we ALREADY KNOW is the favorite. Playing the game again just for the same outcome to happen again is pointless.

Now, there's no way to prove that the Baker's Wife is "one of the three greatest female roles in musical theater" because there is no definite list of "Greatest Musical Theater Roles." There just isn't. So using your own opinions as justification for calling our choices stupid is not only rude, it's also rather foolish. I'm pretty sure you're old enough to understand that opinions do NOT equal facts. In case you didn't...well, at least you learned something new today, didn't you?

Wow.

Yeah. That.

I love the Baker's Wife. Probably my favorite character from musical theatre ever. And it was my suggestion to take her out. Why? Because she's already won. We've already established she's the best. Let's find the second best.

Geez, Salome.

...That's really all you can come up with? Trying to use your "veteran" status to boss me around? Well then, my respect level for you just went down about 30 points lower than it already is. Congratulations.

But since I came to this thread to have a good time (not to debate with a woman who can't properly argue and seems to think she's above everyone else), I'll repost the last move made so we can get the game back on track:
