Peace in our time (Words, Sayings, and Slogans)

"So we'll just put this behind us for now. Yes, goodbye. Peace in our time."

The actual phrase "peace for our time" was spoken by Neville Chamberlain to defend the Munich Agreement in 1938. Britain and its allies agreed to appease Hitler in hopes of curbing his greed for more land. It... didn't really work, and the phrase became a sign of Chamberlain's unfortunate naiïvete. The dean uses it ironically, knowing as he does how short-lived the peace between feminists and satirists must of course be.
