Development Project Wisdom from the film PitchDark?:

Johns: How's it look? 
Riddick: Looks clear. 
[They step forward, and a creature jumps at them. They fight and kill it.] 
Johns: You said it was clear! 
Riddick: I said it *looked* clear. 
Johns: Well, how does it look now? 
Riddick: Looks clear. 

I do not know which to prefer, 
The beauty of inflections 
Or the beauty of innuendoes, 
The blackbird whistling 
Or just after. 

-- Wallace Stevens, 13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird
