I liked QI so much, I recently started watching Jonathan Creek, Alan's mystery/comedy show. Alan plays Jonathan Creek, a guy who comes up with magic tricks for illusionist Adam Klaus. Jonathan helps solve mysteries with Maddy Magellan, an author/journalist. But enough back story.
In series 1, episode 4 the following exchange takes place:
Love it.Maddy and Jonathan are eating dinner.Maddy: Don't scrape that off, it's meant to be that color. It's Cajun; blackened catfish.
Jonathan: Looks more like halibut to me.
Maddy: Well, blackened halibut then. I had to improvise. Could we have less of the pedanticism and just eat?Jonathan takes a bite.Jonathan: The word is pedantry.
(I then found pedanticism in the dictionary, although Firefox's spellchecker doesn't recognize it)
"I'm not pompous; I'm pedantic. There's a difference. Let me explain it to you."
