Touch Water is a reference to vague guidance given by Chat during their full playthrough of Final Fantasy VII back at GameTrailers. This phrase is often used when one of the Allies is having difficulty progressing in a game and members of Chat are trying to help them out.
This playthrough of Final Fantasy VII also produced the memorable Cinnastix moment.
Kyle, Brad, Ben, and Huber were streaming part 6 of their full playthrough of Final Fantasy VII at GameTrailers and were having difficulty locating the Alexander summon materia in the Great Glacier. Chat vaguely told them to "touch the water" which had Kyle and the others annoyed and they left the area. After Ben consulted multiple guides, they discovered they needed to touch the hot springs in order to get the summon materia. This led to the Allies joking with Chat about the quality and clarity of their advice while trying to find their way back to the hot springs.
