    As a Rory Award Winning Screenwriter, I have to say that not only is this not at all gratuitous, but you only said it once.

    While a true master, like a Rory Award Winning Screenwriter such as myself, can manage to infuse a single usage with sufficient gratuitousness, a rank amateur such as yourself (who has never won a Rory Award for Screenwriting, I’d wager) usually requires at least three repetitions in order to generate an appropriately gratuitous air.

    Seriously, sir, at the rate you’re going, you’re never going to win a Rory Award for Screenwriting (as I have done), unless you step up your game in a big way.

    Most sincerely,
    A Rory Award Winning Screenwriter
    Did I mention I’m a Screenwriter?… and that I won a Rory Award for it. ‘Cos I did. Totally.
