Just a Face and a Caption: Well Excuse Me Princess get usage counts

 1 Indigo12ash, Sat, 4th Aug '12 10:53:41 AM from Aperture Science
I don't like this image for a couple of reasons. The first one is that it's faces and a caption. It's not obvious that it's the catchphrase of one of the characters in the image without the caption or even the description of the trope. The quality is poor, although it's justified since it's from an older cartoon. The problem is that I don't have a better idea for a picture. What should we do about this image?

Keep Until Better Image Suggested; their expressions and poses get the trope across as well as you can without text, and better than some potential options with text.

I don't like him. He looks more like a servant. She looks good. I would like another picture too.

Current:

Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.

That caption just screams textbook JAFAAC.

Caption is terrible. Image is passable, and I wouldn't pull it, but it could likely be improved.

Agreed with [up]. A line of dialogue from the show would be a huge improvement for the caption; the pic is a Keep Until Better Image Suggested for me.

EDIT: How's the last panel of this? Alternately, there's this that we could use a few panels from (fair use would cover us on that, although asking the artist wouldn't hurt).

No, the other one.
Including the suggestions in the thread, I still have to go with Keep Until Better Image Suggested. I can't think of a good caption, though, but a different one would likely be an improvement.

Perhaps "no caption" will be better than the current caption.

I do like Willbyr's second suggestion. And I absolutely hate the current caption. Sadly, I can't think of another caption. But then again, my brain is absolutely fried from the past couple of days so asking me for a clever caption isn't a smart idea.

Is Nagging Girlfriend the definition of this trope? That's all I see in that suggestion.

We can use the last panel of Willbyr's second suggestion.

What does that add that the current one doesn't have?

I don't suppose this would be good enough?

Worse, I'm afraid.

Yeah, not quite enough I'd say. Quality is bad too.

The caption is awful and adds nothing to the pic, but the pic itself works. Unless someone comes up with a really good idea, I say just axe the caption and call it a day.
Belief or disbelief rests with you.

It definitely looks better without a caption. Maybe that's why it was bugging me so much. I'll be happy with leaving it captionless.

Ninja'd. The caption [up] is not bad.

The suggested caption is 18 is an improvement.

I support keeping the current picture. The caption in post 18 is funny.

Another vote for #18.
