|06:43 pm - Phrases that get stuck in one voice|
Okay, this is a little odd, but it's fannish so bear with me. :)
Has anyone else noticed everyday phrases getting stuck in their head in a particular intonation? I'm not just talking about fannish lines that become, for instance, common currency in a household (like Sam Winchester's "I lost my shoe," for one example), but words or phrases that retain that intonation just in your head.
Example: ReBoot fans will recall a scene from second season where AndrAIa responds to a question with a high-pitched, gleeful, "Apparently!" It's very hard for me to hear/think that word without hearing AndrAIa in my head.
Another, very odd one: This is from Numb3rs. I noticed recently that I've given Megan Reeves the line "me too" in more than one fic, and it's because I can so clearly hear her saying it in my head. I couldn't think why, because I couldn't recall a specific scene where that came into play...and then I did. But it wasn't from an episode; it was from the second season gag reel. (For any who've seen that, the takes from "Rampage" with Megan and Colby in the dojo--Colby: I'd hate to see what they consider 'bigger.' *both actors struggle not to laugh* Megan/Diane Farr: Me too. *they both lose it*)
Current Mood: weird
No examples come immediately to mind, but I strongly suspect that that's because it's such a commonplace event for me that I don't even notice it any more. :)

As the kids on the internet say, THIS!
Yes. Frex, I can never see the words "Well, now," without hearing Avon.
LOL, that's what I was looking for, other people's phrases to giggle at.
Hahaha, awesome, yeah, I can see how that could easily occur.
And, actually, now that I think about it some more, I do recall noticing recently that I apparently can't say the word "Excellent" without doing a Mr. Burns voice, whether I quite mean to or not. :)

You've pretty much described my whole life. As I was observing on a community, most of my personality comes from M*A*S*H, LOL!
"Fascinating" always sounds like Spock to me (Nimoy, of course, not Quinto). And "Fantastic" has developed definite overtones of Chris Eccleston as the Doctor....
Oh, yes, "fantastic" always sounds Doctor-ish to me now....
I'm not sure I can pinpoint anything, but I lost my shoes the other day. Seriously. It's a very common occurrence in the summertime. I shall be thinking of Sam Winchester often in the coming months.
Ooh! Yes! I know I have examples, but they're not coming to me know - maybe I'll stop back in later.
What's even worse is when I think so hard about a fic I'm writing that I get lines the actors never said stuck in their voices...

I keep seeing signs for Botany Bay, and every time I do it's Chekhov's voice in my head.
I'm pretty sure, yeah. Though not sure any come to mind at the moment.
