    Aww you missed one of my favourites! Episode 129 right as Matt is first describing the plane of fire. Great compilation, this must have taken so much time and work and energy, like holy moly this is pretty all-encompassing and honestly _very_ impressive! Lovely work!

      Oh no I was so worried I'd miss one! That's gonna haunt me forever, haha. I've just looked it up, is it the "Makin it work!" around 1:39:32? If so, at least we can immortalise it in these comments.

    • Jabisdumb
      Jabisdumb Year ago +129

      @Nighty Mein I was actually thinking of the one at about 53:49, “there is a pouring river of lava that is slowly snaking it’s way-“ “ snakinitsway”

    • Nighty Mein
      Nighty Mein  Year ago +94

      @Jabisdumb oh wow it's a double whammy, how did I miss them?! you're right, it's a great moment. thanks for making me aware!

    I love how you can see it go from being a recurring joke to just a reflex.

    • IceMetalPunk
      IceMetalPunk Year ago +106

      Travis makes a joke -> Everyone joins in on it -> Sam takes it to ridiculous levels -> Everyone becomes reflexively more and more ridiculous with it. That is the lifecycle of a Critical Role inside joke 😂

    • Andrey Krichevsky
      Andrey Krichevsky Year ago +89

      Yeah. My favorite is the one where it devolved so much Laura had to appreciate it
      Sam - "makiway", Marisha - "tingalingaling"
      Laura - "Hahaha, I love us!"

    • ailkye

    The moments when Matt gives his spouse the Neutral Face of Displeasure are just gold 😂 and the way Marisha hides her face because she's laughing so hard.

  • laurel

  • ReyaitheShadowWolf
    ReyaitheShadowWolf Year ago +102

    Last's night's episode had one of the absolute best "Makin-Ma-Way" moments ever.
    Taliesin: I'm gonna slowly make my way to --
    Marisha, Laura, Ashely, Robbie, Travis: Maaaaaaaaaaaakin-Maaaaa-Waaaaaaaaaaaaay

  • Brave Hero Greenleaf
    Brave Hero Greenleaf Year ago +188

    You know it’s “bad” when Matt says it while Sam is talking lol

  • Alassandros
    Alassandros Year ago +162

    5:57 It's the glare, the look of a man beholden to some viral chant seemingly soldiering through the way making ritual without the enthusiasm of a neophyte. He just does it through parallel processing and continues on, much like how many people grant blessings to one who has sneezed in the presence of others.

  • Sel Furyx

    And now it's evolved into an actual song, I love it.

    • Stumbling

      Knowing they were sitting on it since 2020 really explains why the second half of this video is mostly Ashley, Sam, and Laura doing it

  • BixLovesLife
    BixLovesLife Year ago +114

    3:11 Travis begrudgingly giving in and doing it after no one else did it....
    It's so interesting how it evolved thooo. From changing the lyrics and adding the diddle-lee-diddle-doo, to a shorter version that still caught at least Matt off guard, to becoming an expected thing, to applying it to other words.... great.
    Also I only joined in c2e131 (snakingtheirway), and when I recently watched all the Narrative Telephones i thought it stemmed from there, but it's been around so much longer!

  • Kay Jarell
    Kay Jarell Year ago +38

    I'm watching the latest campaign, and I needed this catalogue of how it deteriorated from a whole song to just real quick and light "makinmaway" and sometimes it's JUST the noises/notes of it and I love that. I also love Liam's "we're just inside jokes"

  • Isaac Mayer

    It’s after you released the video but I really love the point in episode 11 of campaign 3 when Taliesin says “I’m just gonna slowly make my way” and then everybody on the table in unison sings “maaaaakiiiin myyyyy waaaaay” very slowly

  • nicid2
    nicid2 Year ago +6

    I watched campaign 2 first and then could not stop singing "making my way" when I watched campaign 1... It was so weird when the cast didn't also do it. This video made me laugh so much, thanks for taking the time to put it all together. My favorite one was Marisha getting in trouble and hiding.. lol.

    Erd Tird Mans 3 months ago +2

    The best part of an inside joke is when it devolves from something people actively do and laugh about to something automatic that nobody laughs at because it's just necessary and someone has to do it like a group tic. Then it's in that sweet phase where if you insert someone not in the group, you just look like madmen
