|1.||the goggles do nothing|
a mini-meme originating from The Simpsons, the McBain character is warned to wear goggles to protect him from the acid, however later, he gets trapped in a flood of acid while yelling "MY EYES! THE GOGGLES TO NOTHING". It is often misread/pronounced as "the goggles, they do nothing".
Although the latter may be lulzier, the former is the correct origin of the meme.
McBain: MY EYES!! THE GOGGLES DO NOTHING!
