"Smith" Will Suffice is about people responding to "Oh my God!", "Jesus!", etc. as if it's addressed to them. So you'd think the trope title would mention the part where someone blasphemes. As it is, it's almost impossible to guess what the trope is about from the title.
The image isn't an example of the trope either, because Joker isn't joking about him being Good Lord, but "where's this Good Lord you're referring to?"
Stating 40 wicks and almost 400 inbounds at the present time. 400 inbounds seems pretty good at first glance, but we've got no time interval to interpret it with.
The Trope Namer is allegedly The Matrix, but I don't remember the exact lines when Smith's name was introduced.
According to IMDB, the trope-naming scene was a two-second speedbump in the viewer's attention span near the beginning of the movie, just before Smith assimilated Bane.
Bane: "Oh God..." Agent Smith: "Smith will suffice."
I don't think said prior thread was opposed to a rename but we couldn't agree on what.
That said, I think the page has grown significantly since the last time I saw it. It's gonna need a wick check now.
Sounds an interesting name, is particularly clever for its clearness, and now no longer depending on ptitles I completely support it if a rename comes in. Where were you during the last thread about this?
Well, I think we've established that there are plenty of good alternative titles, but we still can't rename without checking the wicks. If there's no misuse, then we can't get rid of a name that we already know is good enough to get 400 inbounds.
Given that there was no old crowner on the crowner index for this page, I made a single proposition rename crowner here.
I agree that the name is pretty nonindicative of the trope. I think that it is actually somewhat confusing given how common the name Smith is (as Anonymous Mc Cartneyfan pointed out).

Alternative Titles: Smith Will Suffice 3

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
Note: no dialog-like titles are allowed on the crowner!
