1022: So It Has Come To This
|So It Has Come To This|
Title text: 'Come to what?' 'You. Me. This moment.'
The line "it has come to this" is usually seen on the verge of the climactic confrontation between the villain and his arch rival, or when one character has to unleash their utmost ability etc. Despite its dramatic tone, however, the statement is a content-free tautology, true in all possible scenarios. Accordingly, Cueball is saying it about cat food, a relatively trivial problem.
The title text is a similarly dramatic tautology, which you can use if someone questions the first.
- Megan: We ran out of cat food.
- Cueball: So
- Cueball: It has come to this.
- Protip: If you're not sure what to say, try "So it has come to this"--it creates instant dramatic tension and is a valid observation in literally any situation.
- The phrase "So it has come to this" is also said in: 225: Open Source.
