* Whenever StephenColbert talks to his CompanionCube handgun, Sweetness, he holds it up to his deaf ear. I thought this was just weird until someone pointed out that this is to emphasise that the gun isn't really talking to him - the voice is in his head. All the impulses to kill the studio audience are ''his''. --{{Tropers/Rissa}}

* "We'll Meet Again" is best known from ''Doctor Strangelove: Or How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Bomb''. One of the real Stephen Colbert's earliest lessons in improv (and life), at Second City right before his first professional show, was "you gotta learn to love the bomb" - the 'bomb' in this case being failure. "You gotta learn to love when you're failing," [[https://www.gq.com/story/stephen-colbert-gq-cover-story Colbert would later say]]. " You gotta learn to love when you’re failing.… The embracing of that, the discomfort of failing in front of an audience, leads you to penetrate through the fear that blinds you. Fear is the mind killer.” "We'll Meet Again" wasn't just a promise to his fans, it was a silent tribute to where 'learning to love the bomb' had brought him in his career.
