Best line so far today

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.”

Bonus: someone else thinks so too:

    Bonus to anyone who can translate “Totus vestri arx es nostri.” 🙂

    What’s wrong with an Always Faithful Tyrannosaurus?

    For great justice?

      Chad gets the virtual cookie. “Totus vestri arx es nostri” is the properly-mistranslated Latin for “All your base are belong to us.”

        I will store it with my other cookies, where it will remain in an honored position until I clear them because I’m having an issue with somesuch or other.

      Certainly better than those flighty or treacherous Tyrannosaurs…

    Best line I’ve heard so far today:
    “If we don’t find a cure, her heart’s gonna explode like a sausage casing full of weasels.” (delivered straight deadpan)

    This was The Middleman referring to a captured zombified woman who was demanding trout (instead of brains, like good zombies do).

    Old post but I must thank you for saving me the trouble of having to pop in the DVD to find the line 🙂
