Boom goes the dynamite (Words, Sayings, and Slogans)

"I might actually get my stuff back."
"I might actually get paid. Boom goes the dynamite."

In March of 2006, college freshman Brian Collins attempted to sportscast for a college cable channel, but fumbled badly, either rushing his words or pausing altogether. However, the one bright spot that managed to catch some national attention was the line, "And boom goes the dynamite," said in reaction to a basketball player making a 3-point shot. It stuck out because it sounded rather like something a real sportscaster might say. Veronica uses the in-joke when the long arm of the law comes down on Donald Fagan, the thief (perhaps to indicate that she, too, made a 3-pointer, figuratively speaking).
