[[SelfDemonstratingArticle LINES. DELIVERED. WITH. EXTREME! EMPHASIS! ON... EVERY!]] ''[[SelfDemonstratingArticle WORD!]]'' '''[[SelfDemonstratingArticle ESPECIALLY. THE.]] ''[[SelfDemonstratingArticle ENDING!!!!]]'''''

This is {{dialogue}} [[MundaneMadeAwesome transformed into]] {{spectacle}}. It is normally used in ChewingTheScenery and with accordance to the RuleOfCool, and is a favorite {{handwave}} for AcousticLicense. A person who does this often will come across as a LargeHam or just someone with NoIndoorVoice. Done badly, [[{{Narm}} it can torpedo a dramatic scene]]. Done well, it can be part of a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome, although rarely the ''only'' component.

Many times invokes the RuleOfThree. Sometimes a part of a SkywardScream. If each word is accompanied with an attack then it's a PunctuatedPounding. If the delivery ends with a swear, then it's ThisIsForEmphasisBitch.

A frequent variant, notably in AnimeAndManga, is when a [[AlwaysFemale female character]] articulates the end of a sentence on a quiet, seductive tone to tease a male one ([[SayItWithHearts heart optional]]). Just. Like. This. ♡

Often leads to the line [[MemeticMutation becoming memetic.]] An interesting experiment is to go on a MemeticMutation page and see how many of the entries ''aren't'' due to ChewingTheScenery, Punctuated! For! Emphasis!, or hilarious {{Narm}} (often because of the other two).
