: : Does anyone happen to know the origin of the saying 'my chariot awaits'? I'd like to know approximately when it came into general usage. Many thanks.
: It sounds like a line from an old movie. Also, "Your chariot awaits, my lady."
Is the phrase really in general use? Or is it just a humorous anachronism? In any case, I'd like to hear the rest of it appended: He: "My chariot awaits without." She: "Without what?"
