^It isn't. It doesn't show up 'til season 2.
Where are the transcripts available? I'd love to take a look.
I thought I had remembered this back into season one, but if you have checked the transcripts, I must be mistaken. Either that, or they used some variation of the phrase.
The reason why I might notice it more than others is because it is somewhat of a pet peeve of mine. It is like a writer's crutch...the story can't tell itself so you have to have some character reframe the central conflict verbally so the audience knows what is going on. What makes it worse is that usually, it was CLEAR what was going on and it wasn't necessary to spoon feed the audience.
The question is, whether a variation of this phrase was in Season 1.
