Master Blaster's mocking question to Aunty Entity after she demands that he restore the city's power, which he's just shut off in the movie Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. When she finally, grudgingly answers "Master Blaster", he spreads his hands with a beatific smile and says "Lift embargo". The power returns.

This scene seems to resonate deeply with IT personnel when they've had to deal with arrogant, clueless types with lots of power but zero technical knowledge. What more appealing revenge fantasy could there be than simply shutting everything down?

"Who run company?"

"Um...the computer geeks."

"Say louder."

(sobbing, wringing hands in desperation) "The computer geeks!"

"Lift embargo."
