For instance, when faced with a ginormous fleet of attacking nasties, you might say, "If they want Armageddon, then by God let's give it to them!"
Or even just a simple, "Whatever comes, we'll be ready for it."
And the observant sci-fi fan says, "Ooooh, Will, you just doomed everybody."
(Pardon me for mixing my fandoms, but I'm trying to make a point.)
A while back on her blog, Jane Espenson (of Buffy and Gilmore Girls fame) talked about reworking old jokes by acknowledging that they were old.
Tonight, a sci-fi show did that with the old "We can handle it" thing.
I give you:
Coreen: I can handle anything that they throw at us!
Vicki: Oooh, I'm sure we'll read that in the Book of Famous Last Words.
Heh. It's cheesy and brainless, but for some reason, I like cheesy and brainless right now. Plus, Henry's way cuter than Angel was...but not cuter than Spike, who had the benefit of the accent.
