I didn't even catch that. Nice reference to David's movie.

I noticed that, it was about as subtle as a brick.

About as subtle as being hit in the face with a brick. Even David cringed at that.

Actually it must of been more subtle or way more inside then I thought. I heard it and thought of the movie but after no one brought it up in the main thread I thought maybe I just mis-heard or overthought the line.

Glad to know I am not crazy.........or at least in that one pure second of time I was not hallucinating or anything. ;)

You guys have to remember that comparatively few people who watch Stargate actively participate on Stargate forums. And even if they do, there is no guarantee that they've heard of A Dog's Breakfast. So while those of us familiar with the movie got hit in the face with that comment, most people wouldn't have even realized it was there.

That was brilliant. I had to pause the episode because I was laughing (and clapping!) so much. :D

I didn't think it was as "subtle as a brick." It's just like any other saying: "feel like [email protected]," or "look what the cat dragged in," or, even more colorful, "feel like something the cat threw up."

I thought it was funny, and as someone mentioned, probably 85% of the regular viewing audience didn't know it was a reference to Hewlett's movie.

I don't see why it HAD to be subtle. It was obvious that they were trying to reference the film.

I caught it but it was not "drop dead funny" but rather amusing

Isn't the phrase 'A dogs dinner' anyway?

You're muddling two phrases:

'A Dog's Breakfast' is of Glaswegian origin and therefore does have some link to Beckett. It means literally 'a mess'.

'A Dog's Dinner' refers to someone being over-dressed, as in 'Done up like a dog's dinner'

That's the only way I've heard the phrase 'a dogs dinner' used, meaning a mess.

The correct meaning is inappropriate, overdone, over-elaborate. The consequence may be that someone looks a mess, certainly that they look ridiculous, but a different angle on it to 'dog's breakfast'. If you make a dog's breakfast of something you have made a serious mess, if someone feels like a dog's breakfast they are feeling pretty ropey.

Are you sure? I had a quick look on Google, and every definition I could find there for dog's dinner is the same as mine...

lol, ya I caught this as well. I even had to rewind (dvr ftw) and replay it cuz my boyfriend didnt catch it. And I agree with PG-15, it's wasn't subtle nor did it have to be. The phrase "a dog's breakfast" coming out of the mouths of anyone involved with that move, especially David and Paul, is an OBVIOUS plug to the movie. :3

I agree with the "subtle as a brick" comment. As soon as i heard it i was like "HA!", any devout fan woulda caught that instantly. :cameron:
