"...I watched it happen! Don't tell me it didn't happen!"
The overuse of the word "happen" in this sequence of dialogue makes me laugh like nothing else.
A friend of mine suggested that this was a pattern in the film, things being repeated in different ways for emphasis for the slow and stupid among the viewers...(cf. the sequence about the "alternate universe" between nuSpock etc. later).
I mean four times? Yes we get it, Nero's upset that Romulus was destroyed...but do you really have to repeat it to Pike that many times?
Also, Nero's accent sounded to me closer to a Southerner than a Romulan.
You're reading way
too much into it.
Nero says happen 4 times for the stupid people in the film?
