Brendan's Shaun of the Dead red cone reference

Finally caught up last night, and just when I thought nothing could beat the "I love you" scene from S03E05 "Smokers Allowed," the ending of S03E08 "The Hero" was incredibly poignant and profound in a way I never expected. Amazing television. But I digress...

When Nathan's new "friend," Brendan is in the car talking about red/blue colors in movies and TV shows in S08E07 "Nail Salon/Fun," he says the line, "In Shaun of the Dead, the little cone that he ate was red..." Now, I am a pretty big SotD fan and I can't think of what he was referring to. He can't be talking about the Cornetto Shaun gets Ed at the shop, can he?

Yes, of course he's talking about the red Cornetto ice cream cone.

Blue in Hot Fuzz.

Green in The World's End.

Red=blood, blue=cops, green=aliens.



Brendan was a good sport but he was wrong about Trek. The red shirts were easily killed on TOS, on TNG it was the gold shirts. The blue shirts were medical/science personnel.
