Quote! I was watching BBC News 24 before I left for work. Some young correspondent had been plonked in front of Downing Street to describe how nothing was happening and after the introductory question from the studio without a hint of irony he answered, "Well they say that revenge is a dish best served cold." No actually, Klingons say that. Didn't you see Kill Bill? Just look at this discussion of how it's supposed to be translated -- "bortaS bIr jablu'DI' reH QaQqu' nay" apparently. Possibly the subtlest outing of a sci-fi fan on live tv I've seen since the Sky News reader who suddenly developed an encyclopedic knowledge of Doctor Who when the new series was announced. Unless like me he's served his time in Starfleet then moved on to pastures new. Or he actually thought it was a traditional phrase which kind of makes you wonder about who is actually going to be replacing Andrew Gilligan...
