...why am I so fond of Selvig calling the Tesseract "she"? That cannot be good. But I find it stupidly charming. Also, "WHERE IS MY SUPER-SUIT"-esque!Fury is my actual favorite thing in the known universe. JSYK.

LOKI: Well, I convinced your precious Dr. Selvig to work on the Tesseract and, no thanks to you, I did climb out of that galactic abyss you threw me into--

THOR: I flung thee into no abyss, brother! THOU DIDST LET GO SEEMINGLY FOR NO REASON BUT TO MAKE ME FEEL REALLY REALLY BAD

AHAHAHAHA SO FUCKING TRUE. Are you forgetting Thor's Big No?? This jackass, I swear.

THOR: lol, thou mad
...new catchphrase for all of eternity; get ready, ONTD

[*FACE PUNCH*]
THE HULK: IS HULK FAVORITE MOVIE. *NOD*

*SCREAMING* Best brick joke ever? YES I THINK SO. \8D/

NATASHA: Bruce! Why didn't you just do that half the movie ago?!
THE HULK [SHRUGGING]: NOBODY ASKED HULK TO SMASH.

*DED* That's the best part! Because obviously he knows that won't actually kill him or defeat him in any way, so his point is literally just "oh my god, SHUT UP. SERIOUSLY." Except Hulk-style. (NOTE: I've seen this bitch four times now, and I've still never really, properly heard "puny god." Oh, nerds.)

also ded @ "after lunch." I will never, ever, ever stop believing that Loki was there for that. Because he was.

As usual,

to all of this.

I did hear "puny god" the second/last time I saw it, but I had to listen very closely for it.

THOR: lol, thou mad

I have to give credit to my friend Dayna (queenanthai); she trolled me with this

To the people all butthurt over stuff in Avengers. on Twitpic

after the "mewling quim" incident.

Oh! So I can thank you here then for finally providing an explanation for the chatter I've been reading about "Loki called her the C-word!". Because my initial reaction was "WUT. In a PG-13... I... shouldn't I have noticed that!?" Glad to see it was "in translation", I wondered if that was the case... because otherwise I would have clearly needed my hearing checked. The reason I never caught it is simply because I had never in my life heard the word "quim" before.

Coincidentally, I feel sooooo torn on this. Oh, archaic misogynyspeak, why must you sound so amusing to my modern ears?
I'm serious, I can't... I know "quim" is Ye Oldie Speak for the c-word, but it sounds so FUNNY if you don't know that. So do "harlot" (which makes me think of harlequins) and "trollop" (mushrooms!) and "strumpet" (possibly an edible musical instrument!). All terribly sexist, horrible words, and yet they're far, far too entertaining to say. *sigh*

BRB, LOLing forever.

We had a 400-comment close-reading/meltdown/discussion over the Quim Scene on my personal journal the week the movie came out, and... as far as my blood pressure is concerned, it never happened and we will never speak of it again. I think the two Avengers discussion entries neared 900 comments total because of that. And if there's another entry I've had to close comments on, I can't remember what it is. So. I mean. Yeah. I was very careful to sidestep that argument entirely when writing up that part here.

Also, I am so glad that at least one person got the "Face Punch" joke without me having to link back to it.

But of course! For a second I had it confused with "Kickpuncher," the fake franchise from Community, but then I realized it was even better. (I am still LOLing at the use of a Wilhelm in that scene in...New Moon, was it? That was actually brilliant, ngl.)

Face Punch is probably my favorite Twilight movie moment ever.

It's like this sense of humor that dropped in from a completely different movie for five minutes, I love it.
