The villain of the piece shoots the cop to pieces and leaves him for
dead, saying: "good night, sweet prince." That cop would later become. .
. .  Robocop.

I guess the writer was thinking of the revenge theme when he wrote the
dialogue.

Comment:        Re: SHK 11.0242 More Pop Culture

Hello, all.  Given the recent, biennial round of adult
Shakespeare/Shakesporn debate-more helpful in its Y2K incarnation than
that in 1998, although with many similar participants, espousing similar
positions-and in response to the current spate of pop culture
references, I offer this, with a tip of the hat to R. Burt:

This Sunday, 6 Feb., while cueing up a series of videotapes in
preparation for a discussion of Rom. 5.3, I happened across a
Valentine's Day ad airing on WKBD, channel 50, which airs out of
Detroit, MI.  It was for a chain of stores called Lover's Lane, spread
across the lower half of Michigan.  Lover's Lane sells lingerie,
assorted functional, lurid (and sometimes hysterical) knicknacks and
appurtenances, tapes, &c.  The lead-off line of the ad was "If you're a
pair of star-crossed lovers . . ."

You should only see what Juliet was wearing, and what she was buying for
her Romeo.

Regards,
k
