It's like that one line from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Han Solo announces that he's leaving. Leia thought he'd changed his mind. To which, Han replies, "Well, that bounty hunter on Ord Mandel changed my mind." A single line. No further explanation. But yet, the audience gets loads from that one line. They were on Ord Mandel. Han ran into a bounty hunter-- I even conclude that it was an unpleasant and dangerous exchange. And it affected him. So much information is so small of a line.
Loaded lines. Even more potent than loaded words.
