From a reader:
That strikes as a very effective geek detector, Jonah. As soon as I saw
it I recognized it (that’s the first stage). There was about a second
before I could place it, trying to figure out why I know that (2nd).
Followed by that warm-fuzzy feeling you get when you answer a trivia
question (3rd), as “TK421, why aren’t you at your post?” emerges from
the memory and I identify it as a Star Wars quote. That, of course,
was followed quickly by the shame and chagrin that comes with the
knowledge that you are the essence of geek: having watched Star Wars so
many times that you were able to recognize such a ridiculously obscure
reference (4th). Then comes acceptance. Yes, we are geeks. I am geek.
So be it.
