PPT - Patented Pep Talk - is the term for those great speeches Saunders delivers in innumerable episodes usually to straighten out a misguided soldier, but occasionally a civilian would be the lucky recipient. Other characters did occasionally give a PPT, but Saunders holds the patent. Term first coined on the Combat! mailing list by Jo "King Two" Davidsmeyer and acronym coined by Nancy "White Rook" Durgin, both in August 1994.
