"This FOX unit is a nut-fest!"  

Found the video for the "tea and scones" convo thanks to the mighty Google. (The segment starts at 1:25, but feel free to listen to the whole thing. XD)

HE IS ACTUALLY FREAKING OUT, I can't get over this XDD

Seriously, the guy who tells you to stay calm and patch yourself up after a nuclear explosion, DRIVEN INTO A STATE OF PANIC BY THE LACK OF TEA AND SCONES.

They never give it a rest either:

Sigint: Ah, you're wearing the chocolate chip pattern.

Snake: Chocolate chip? You mean this camouflage?

Sigint: Yeah.

Snake: I've never heard of a camo pattern called that before...

Sigint: Yeah, I know. I just thought it up right now. The chocolate chip pattern is probably designed to provide cover in a desert environment. It should work best against a sandy or rocky background.

Snake: Makes sense. But why'd you call it chocolate chip?

Sigint: 'Cause that's what it reminds me of. [So that's why BB still wears it in PW. Nostalgia~]

Snake: What?

Sigint: Those little round cookies the major is always snackin' on.

Major Zero: They're not cookies. They're scones.

Sigint: Major!

Major: And it's not a snack. It's afternoon tea.

Sigint: Snack, tea, same thing.

Major: No, it's not! Look here, afternoon tea is a fine old English tradition. [HE SAYS IT IN SUCH A DEDICATED VOICE]

Sigint: Uh oh. Here we go again. Talk to you later, Snake.

Major: The origins of afternoon tea go back to the Victorian Era. Anna Maria, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, was...

And finally, the old classic:

Para-Medic: Snake, have you seen 007: From Russia with Love?

Snake: I don't like those movies. Real spies are nothing like James Bond. It's pure fantasy.

Para-Medic: Snake, I don't think the Major's going to like you saying that.

Snake: And even though it's fiction, I can't help but comparing myself to Bond.

Major Zero: What exactly don't you like about James Bond? Is it the fantastic gadgets? The cars? The guns?


Major: Snake, wouldn't you like to have a gun shaped like a pen?

Snake: What good is a pen going to do me in the jungle? I'd look like a fool. [With such a stupid tool.]

Major: Then what about a snake-shaped gun? [YOU DID NOT JUST GO THERE, ZERO.] You could make it look like you're grappling with a giant snake and then get a shot in on the enemy while they're distracted. Heh!

Snake: OK, now you're being ridiculous. [♥]

Major: We'll make you a snake-shaped gun that folds up and fits into an attache case.

Snake: Will you give it a rest?

Major: Oh, I get it. You're worried about how to handle the ladies, aren't you?

Snake: No...

Major: I knew it. Hmm... To tell you the truth, I don't like the idea of playing hanky-panky with enemy femme fatales, either. [Yeah, I wonder why.] But that's part of Bond's appeal. You could learn a thing or two from him. What about this EVA? What are you planning to do with her? [LOL Major, why do you care? Wink wink.]

Snake: I...I don't even trust her yet.

Major: That's not what I mean. You can't let yourself get involved. This is a game of spy versus spy. She's using you just as much as you're using her.

Snake: I realize that.

Major: You've got to grab the initiative. And to do that, you have to get the upper hand in the relationship. That's what a spy is supposed to do. [Explains that one cutscene, I suppose. XD]

Snake: Get the upper hand...I don't think I'm cut out for that mission. [True, instead you let her throw your poor radio in the fireplace, you complete dork.]

Major: Maybe if you changed your code name to Double-O-Snake? ['CAUSE "NAKED SNAKE" JUST ISN'T ENOUGH INNUENDO]

Snake: Major... [Translation: "I AM DISGRUNTLED LEAVE ME ALONE ;A;"]

Major: 007 is the biggest thing to come out of England since the Mayflower. I wouldn't be surprised if they made 20 more of those movies. [He always has been a visionary.]

Para-Medic: Didn't you know? The Major is a huge James Bond fan. Don't get him worked up like this.

Snake: Worked up?

Para-Medic: Maybe you don't realize this, but now that you've got him started talking about Bond, I'm going to have to listen to him lecture for a whole hour after he gets off the radio.

Snake: You have my sympathy.

Para-Medic: It's too bad you can't enjoy such a great movie, though. [Oh Quack ♥]

Snake: I guess I'm just one of those people who can't enjoy spy flicks.

So sad. XD

See you later, instigator: Ocelot - Lotsoudeteron on December 6th, 2010 10:58 pm (UTC)
Yesss, so many amusing things to pick up in that convo. And the tea is classic. Isn't the sheer amount of easter eggs the most awesome thing about MGS, though? A LIFELONG PURSUIT TO FIND THEM ALL~

Well it's part of his appeal, don't you know.

haha, true, I am always impressed by the number of completely random things they manage to squeeze in all the games. I probably shouldn't complain.

I suppose English-ness is always appealing. Especially to Americans. xD

Yeah, random and yet so appealing.

Or to the English as fodder for self-irony. How quaint. XD

unrelated but relevant

OH THIS BRINGS WARMTH TO MY HEART though it might also mean my tea addiction's getting notorious
