After receiving 'The Look' the receiver is usually filled with immense dread at prospects of hearing what he/she did wrong or being subjected to severe punishments.
Punishments may include but not limited to: the couch, 'headaches', and television out the window.
'The Look' can usually be used if you discover your significant other has performed tasks up to par or has behaved badly. Most often when you need an excuse for roses, massages, or just a human servant for a week.
Paul: "Oh god. What are you going to do?"
Rich: "I don't know man.. roses? Roses!"
Paul: "For you sake I hope you wrap them in diamonds."
