Missed is often used to describe a situation when you fail to be present or when you fail to hit or strike an object. However, when the word missed is used in quotation marks, such as "missed", it refers to being totally smashed out of your mind, in a hugely small amount of time, so much so that you are asked to leave the bar immediately, even before the band plays their first song, and you therefore "missed" the band, even though you were present at one point, but oddly enough you didn`t "miss" the ground when you hit it leaving the bar.
Chuck...."Man, can you believe Mark missed that awesome band last night?"
Donna..."But I thought Mark was at the show?"
Chuck..."Well, he was, but then he "missed" it."
Donna..."Oh, now I get it."
