Remember the Lord etymology for Tropic Thunder, and the next in bold for the General's longest upcoming quote
Jonathan: from Heb. Yonathan, short for Yehonathan, lit. "the Lord has given." As a pre-Uncle Sam emblem of the United States, sometimes personified as Brother Jonathan, , it dates from 1816, said to have been applied by Washington to Gov. Jonathan Trumbull of Connecticut, to whom he sometimes turned for advice (cf. 2 Sam. i.26); hence "a New Englander," and eventually "an American." As a variety of red apple it dates from 1831, so called because it was introduced in the U.S.
Remember this next one for when we etymologize Gretchen
Krantz: German (Op. Paperclip related?) Kranz (same phonetics) means Wreath or Garland: flower arrangement consisting of a circular band of foliage or flowers for ornamental purposes.
General Jonathan Krantz: I knew you'd never take it personally, because you are, and have been ever since I took you under my wing, my girl. (Mind Control MK trigger time, check the eyes, I'm sparing you a nasty dirty old man kiss)
Gretchen's ety. makes her a MK'd pet & links her to General Flower Kran(t)z
Gretchen: Swed. pet form of Margaret=manjari "cluster of flowers", or pearl.
Morgan's ety. also relates to MK, and pearl links back to the 1st name.
Morgan: Fata Morgana, mirage especially common in the Strait of Messina, Italy, from Morgana, "Morgan le Fay", Sister of King Arthur. Morgan is Welsh, "sea-dweller." Dweller on the Mind Controlled Seas of Consciousness... There is perhaps, too, here an infl. of Arabic marjan, lit. "pearl," also a fem. proper name, popularly the name of a sorceress.
(The General's daughter, who later threatens Gretchen
if she ever threatens Krantz with a gun again.)
Tropic Thunder mini-post
Damien Cockburn: "Crisis Meeting? What does that mean exactly? I mean, are we in a crisis?... I know it's just that you said that he called it a crisis meeting. So..."
Rob Slolom: "It's Les Grossman. He throws these words around. 'Crisis, explosion, not rolling, fired.' These are just words."
Four Leaf Tayback: "We must put those boys in the shit. Take them off the fucking grid." (and this is repeated in sample, when credits roll in the song )
Byong: We no get money yet! Price now 100 million. You pay now, or tomorrow Simple Jack Die!
Les Grossman: Great. Let me get this down. 100 million... Oh, wait! I got a better idea. Instead of a hundred million, how about I send you a hobo's dick cheese? Then, you kill him. Do your thing, skin the fucking bastard. Go to town, man. Go to town! In the mean time and as usual, go fuck yourself. (Which is what every western Tax Payer should have stood up for... concerning the crisis, not the killing or skinning ;p)
The movie also mocked the money grabbing sell-out Hip Hop scene, with a closet gay commercial whore called Alpa Chino pimping the drink Booty Sweat and snack Bust a Nut. "Would you rather have a Lexus or Justice? a dream or some substance? A Beemer, a necklace or freedom?" Dead Prez - Hip Hop.
Kirk Lazarus: "I know what dude I am. I'm the dude playin' the dude (Kirk Lazarus), disguised as another dude (Osiris)."
Kirk: Church, Lazarus: any poor and visibly diseased person. And this even sync's up with Prison Break's Jonathan Krantz: "God has helped." Osiris: Judge of the Dead, God of the Afterlife, Green skin symbolizing rebirth. (Iron Man Downey Jr. is painted black, and the movie is mostly set in a green jungle.)For a li'l more check out Konkrete Junkyard 1 & 2 and Connecting Dotz.
