YMMV: George Takei
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Made his first appearance on the Howard Stern show in the early 90s. Howard abruptly asked him in the middle of the interview if he was gay. George answered with a flat "No". George came out in 2005.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Oh my."
  • Memetic Sex God: One day, when you least expect it, he will have sex with you.
  • Narm Charm: His whole Large Ham persona.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: Was one of the most prominent voices speaking out against anti-Muslim discrimination in the wake of September 11th, having experienced similar hatred and bigotry as a Japanese-American during and after World War II.
    • After the death of Fred Phelps Sr., Takei said that, as tempting as it may be to picket his funeral like his miscreant clan did to so many, it;s best that we leave him alone, for hate never really wins in the end.
  • Tear Jerker: Pretty much anything out of the first third of his autobiography, detailing the family's life in the internment camp. In particular Takei talks about how the family adopted a stray dog, and then had to leave it behind when the war ended and the camp was disbanded. "I couldn't stop my tears." There is also a mention of an aunt who died at Hiroshima holding her baby.
