He just came to my office door with "Knight in Shining Armor Linguist Service?"
Which is a riff on the usual "Knight in Shining Armor Pest Control Service?" to which I reply, "Please state the nature of the pest control emergency." So essentially, "It's an emergency, is there a linguist in the house?" Not an actual emergency, just something in need of translation; but I've long thought that a lot of situations could be improved by an expert communicator. And I was able to figure out that the words on the television screen were probably gibberish, on account of some of the letters being normally positioned, others being backwards, and some in combinations not typical of the probable language being represented.
Love is playing to each other's strengths. And making geek jokes.
