Pause. During the pause, pupils slightly dilate and jaw goes a little slack. Then:
"You've never seen the Goonies?!?!?!"
In order to read this correctly, you have to understand that there is a slight pause at the word "never". That's the point that the brain boggles over what that word means and tries to place it in connection with the movie "The Goonies".
Seen it? I don't even remember hearing about it growing up. I don't know why. It isn't that I lived in a hole under a rock. I didn't even know what it was about. I just remember my roomie's response to my offhand comment about a movie that I had not seen. You know what? I have seen this exact response more than once. We can call it "The Reaction." Same pause, same inflection, everything. In fact, I've seen it every time that fact came up. It's so weird to me.
Anyway, Wednesday I saw that movie for the first time in my life. My life is no longer Goonie-less, and that's a good thing. The world is a happier place because of Chunk.
But, it is a little sad that I will no longer be able to elicit The Reaction.
