Constance: Are you always this cocky?
Only on Tuesdays... And whenever beautiful women are involved.
This trope is when a character dismisses something as ordinary, or at least, attempts to be nonchalant over something unusual or impressive, either as a response to another character's inquiry, or as a commentary on an Unusually Uninteresting Sight
("Was that an explosion? Must be Tuesday."). Occassionally also used as an Insult Backfire
, when a character is insulted, and replies flippantly that the insult only applies on Tuesday.
