The "lock and load" line reminds me of TNG: In Theory, when Data used canned phrases from what appeared to be 50's era television ("Honey, I'm home!"), in order to emulate a romantic relationship. "Lock and load" may have been something he filed away after watching a few movies.
Moe: I'll take the blonde!
Larry: I'll take the brunette!
Curly: I'll take the Black and Tan!
