J.D.: Hey, is it still funny to yell "get a room"? I don't care, I'm going for it. [yells] Get a room!

Bender: Get a room, you two!

Man: We are in a room.

Bender: Then lose some weight.

Stock Response to two characters acting in an unusually lovey-dovey way, or flirting (but generally what each character thinks of as covertly, since they often Cannot Spit It Out). Occasionally used sincerely in the event of Coitus Uninterruptus, and in the other direction, also used on non-sexual friends (often but not always Heterosexual Life Partners) by the resident Deadpan Snarker. Mood Dissonance, both to "get back to the comedy already!" in the first two versions and to keep viewers from becoming more titillated than they should be for the time slot.


Examples:


Advertising

  • A Halloween commercial for K-Mart (started airing in 2009) shows a costume party. A couple dressed as vampires make romantic comments to each other. Another partygoer dressed as a pirate yells "Arr! Get a tomb!" Although, he might have a point. There are children at this party.

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The Scoobies are checking out an apartment Xander is thinking of buying. Xander opens a door and finds Buffy making out with Riley; he tells them to go find a bedroom. The couple look around pointedly -- they're in one. Also lampshaded in "Once More With Feeling" when Xander notes the get-a-roominess of Willow and Tara who have supposedly rushed off to get a book for Giles.
