“Pop, pop!”

From: Community

Genre: Television

Who said it?: Magnitute

The story behind the quote: The quote comes from the cult sitcom Community, but not from one of the main cast. Rather, the quote is the catchphrase of one of the supporting cast members. The man with a “magnetic attitude,” Magnitude!

While he doesn’t contribute much to the show (he never really got his own storyline like Fat Neil did), his paths did cross the gang of Greendale once in a while. Besides being a one man party (that’s his official occupation), he’s know for saying the quote for this week while performing his signature “raise the roof” hand gesture at the same time.

Geek wisdom: Magnitude became notoriously known for saying his catchphrase, so he’s known for saying those two words. That’s because when you say or do something often enough, you begin to get a reputation based on it. Now, whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing depends on you.

If you frequently lie to others, you’ll gain a reputation of being a liar. If you often follow the honest route, you’ll get a reputation of being a trustworthy person. If you think you can simply erase your reputation, you’d be wrong. It’s better to build good standing from the start rather than having to tear down your “bad” one.
