to:

* ''Franchise/TheLoneRanger'': "What do you mean ''we'', kemosabe?" [[labelnote:Explanation]] A popular joke, suggesting that Tonto would inevitably [[TheDogBitesBack get sick of taking orders from the Ranger]] and [[EtTuBrute turn against him]] if they were ever surrounded by hostile Indians--leading to the exchange "Looks like we're done for!"/"What do you mean ''we'', kemosabe?". It's used to poke fun at the popular perception of Tonto as the Ranger's put-upon servant, but it's well-known enough that certain jokesters often tack "kemosabe" onto the phrase "What do you mean ''we''?" for humor's sake. Not that the writers of the actually show ''never'' had Tonto and the Ranger fighting Indian baddies, likely to avoid accusations of racism; the implication is that [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere Tonto would have joined them in a heartbeat]] if he had ever met them.[[/labelnote]]
