Divide the number of times you said [[AC:"Holy Shit!"]] by the number of scenes. This is the Holy Shit Quotient (or HSQ) for a given episode. The term originated somewhere among the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' (Website/BuffistasOrg, most likely) and Website/TelevisionWithoutPity communities, where it is occasionally still possible to get a nice little flame war going over whether or not "HSQ" is pronounced "aitch-skew."

It is sometimes shortened to form the verb "skew." As in: "The episode skewed me to the chair."

{{Wham Episode}}s tend to have a high HSQ, as do ProfessionalWrestling matches involving {{Spot Monkey}}s. This is in fact a common chant at pro wrestling events when something like that happens. HeavyMetal and VisualKei bands try to have at least a moderate one of these per promotional video and/or concert, though it often ends up as {{Narm}} if failed. Obviously, that's a matter of opinion.

Anything that has SerialEscalation somehow is guaranteed to have a high HSQ. When writers try to increase the HSQ of a scene that doesn't have punch by having the characters (or camera work) ''pretend'' it does, they often wind up using MundaneMadeAwesome.

'''''No examples, please.''''' We don't need to document every single instance of someone saying "Holy shit."
