Been wondering what this meant ever since I first heard claptrap say it. Obviously not curious enough to try to figure it out on the web. Well, coincidentally, when catching up on some Doctor Who, I heard the 9th doctor say it a couple of times and then tell someone what it means.
So for those that may be curious but lazy (and never took French class) it means "Let's go"
WOW! Someone really knows his Doctors. My apologies for my mistake. You are correct, I did mean the 10th Doctor. Matt Smith is my favorite Doctor so far and his Amy Pond my favorite companion. So were I not so new to the series I should have not made that mistake. Good job knowing which Doctor said it since I made no other references or hints.
Of course it is a Doctor Who reference when Claptrap says it. Gearbox loves inside jokes.
Oh I'm relatively new to the series too but David Tennant is my favorite doctor by far so that's really the only reason I caught it. I just want it tone next Saturday already so I can finally watch a new episode.
Allons-y is one of the easier to spot references though, did you see some of the other ones?
Claptrap, when idling on the title screen, will say he needs to pee then hop into the outhouse which disappears and returns like a Tardis.
The Sanctuary citizens keep knocking on walls which is a reference to the sound of drums of the Master, and sometimes talk about missing Constable What on echocast.
When you blow up the dam in Opportunity, Jack gets on the loudspeaker and talks about citizens who died and asks to mourn them. He's actually talking about the original 4 Doctor actors: W. Hartnell, P. Troughton, J. Pertwee and the iconic T. Baker.
And the biggest one of all, a handsome man that seemingly doesn't die, and the Master called Captain Harkness "Handsome Jack". Yeah, the villain is a reference.
