    I have been watching the xfiles from the beginning and am watching episode 14 from season 2 (Die Hand die Verletzt) The episode is about some devil worshipers. The climax of the episode is approaching (about minute 42) with Mulder and Scully about to be murdered by the baddies. The are performing some black ritual and start speaking in latin. Much to my surprise I hear them quote Frank Zappp's Father oblivion.

    Dominus vobiscum
    Et cum spiritu tuo

    Sadly, when I googled the latin above I found it wasn't just something frank made up. I'm going to keep telling myself it was a zappa quote :)

    My sis teaches latin in university. We're both Zappa fans. Quoting Zappa in latin is sort of a hobby of ours. ;-)

    Going to see Zappa plays Zappa do the entire One Size Fits All album on April 1st: Ich bin hier... AIEE-AH! Und du bist mein Sofa...

    In the Dinotopia series one guy successfully uses the lyrics of "Bohemian Rhapsody" as a graduation exam.

    Dude, they aren't quoting Zappa, they are quoting the Catholic Latin mass. It means "Peace be with you, and with your spirit."

    Reread the OP, he knows what it means. It's just that for some of us that saying is forever associated with Father Oblivion's greeting as he's trying to sell you some sleazy pancakes. :)
