I was watching reruns of The Venture Brothers that I taped on Adult Swim during the week. This one happened to be season 2, episode 10, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Kills.” Scene: In the Monarch’s cocoon, a guest room. Henchman #21 is convinced that the Monarch’s new advisor, Dr. Henry Killinger, is evil and intent on destroying the Monarch. #21 sneaks into Killinger’s room to steal his “Magic Murder Bag.” Killinger wakes up and summons his Blackguards to deal with #21.
Henchman #21: You can silence me but there will be others!! Semper fidelis tyrannosaurus!
Killinger: You mean, “sic semper tyrannis.” You said, “always faithful terrible lizard.”
Henchman #21: I did? Cool.
That’s totally going to be my new motto. It’s way cooler than “Totus vestri arx es nostri.”
