ALongTimeAgoInAGalaxyFarFarAway (well, actually Texas in 1836) roughly two hundred colonialists stood their ground against an entire army (the Mexican one, that is) and did so for almost two straight weeks. William Travis, James Bowie, and [[Film/TheAlamo Billy Bob Thorton]][[note]] (actually, UsefulNotes/DavyCrockett)[[/note]] were the three men who orchestrated their defense against the ensuing onslaught of Santa Anna and his men, and since then The Alamo has been a nationally revered moment of American bravery for the entire country, but mostly [[EverythingIsBigInTexas Texas]].

Something important. Oh, yes, that's right -- the Alamo!"Alamo!" The trope is being played with here, since [=McKay=] is reappropriating the original battle cry as a cautionary warning about the implausibility of surviving an overwhelming siege.
