Bill and Ted really did it to me with their Excellent Adventure movie. I can't see the name Socrates without my internal dialog ticking off, "So Crates, make sure your robe doesn't get stuck in the escalator." It's a good thing I don't often have cause to use the name Socrates, because I would certainly have to humiliate myself several times by calling him So Crates before I relearned the word. I thought of it tonight because the new hair place (salon?) across the street from my house is named Socrates House of Hair, which I thought was odd since Socrates is bald in the movie Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. That movie was easily Keanu Reeves best role since it played off his oafish aloofness so well.
