Notes

  1. ^  Hobnob and powwow are terms for socializing.
  2. ^  Short for confabulate; an informal chat.
  3. ^ Hobgobken  A reference to the Hadoken from Street Fighter. Curiously, it's not the previously seen hoboken.
  4. ^  A verbal jab. A wise crack. Chitchat is another word for talking.
  5. ^  Point/Counterpoint are typical debate forms. Smacktalk is speech intended to insult or aggravate an opponent.
  6. ^  Jaw is another word for talking.
