    Now the party’s over
    I’m so tired
    Then I see you coming
    Out of nowhere
    Much communication
    In a motion
    Without conversation
    Or a notion

    i recall watching the remake of clash of the titans a few years back. every few minutes a character would explain that they had to hurry to get to argos – cue much tittering from the audience.
