YMMV: Patrick Stewart
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: "But science fiction, I mean why would you want to do science fiction?" — Patrick Stewart, having a chat with Lalla Ward in 1980.
  • Memetic Mutation: When the Internet started going mainstream and became more accessible, most of the people who began to access it would now be in their 20's or 30's. Those people grew up watching Stewart saving the galaxy as Picard. As such he has now become an icon online with the 'Picard Song' and several demotivational posters of him either showing his approval or disapproval (he's the standard choice of picture for the Face Palm). put it best when they said:
    "Because Picard is an infallible source of truth, justice and reason invoking him to prove a point immediately grants credence to your opinion."
    • So he's become the Anti-Hitler?
  • One-Scene Wonder: The scene in Extras when he pitches a script that is essentially "Charles Xavier as a pervert" steals the entire series.
    "They try to cover up, but it's too late. I've seen it all."
    • He was briefly King Richard the Lionheart in Robin Hood: Men in Tights.
      • As far as I know, he and Sean Connery are the only two actors to have played both "King Richard" and "Robin Hood", but not in the same productions though. Sean Connery was "Robin" in "Robin & Marion" and "King Richard" in "Prince of Thieves". Patrick Stewart's role as King Richard is already mentioned above. He played "Picard as Robin" for "ST:TNG". ("Q-pid")
    • "It's good to be the king!"
    • Find him, and close shut the jaws of Oblivion!
    • As the Maitre'D of l'Idiot in L.A. Story.
  • Values Dissonance: Why he shrugs off the notion of TV as "slumming". British actors don't generally think that way, as ably described by "Furious D" here.
    D: For a British actor, there's no such thing as slumming above amateur porn, there's only working.
