What exactly does "i would have been your daddy" mean?

I was just wondering if anyone out there had any idea as to what "I would have been your daddy"(beginning of ASsault on the Control Room, scene caption) means. seriously, i've played the game just as much as anyone else, prolly more, i've done all sorta of research on the history of halo and stuff, but i've never found anything relevant to this. all i can come up with is that its some sort of inside joke. So if anyone has a good idea, or just wants to be creative then lemme kno. My only other possible theory is that with all the stuff about the master chief and humanity being some sort of decendant of the forerunners, maybe since there is a lot of stuff in that particular level associated with the forerunner(what with it being their control room and all) and the master chief sort of beginning his mission to destroy the ring, that it has sumthing to do with the forerunner "being his daddy" or at least they would have been, had he not destroyed their ring and thus been thrown out of the "family".its far fetched i kno, and its not really exactly what i was thinking, but it almost gets the point across.

  • It's much more simple than this. The title is a joke. As was noted before, the second half of the statement is "But the dog beat me over the fence." Bungie has a thing for other people's mom's.

  • I doubt they would answer that in Halo 2 because it is such a minor thing in the game. Personally I think that it has nothing to do with the game at all and they put it in just for fun.

  • a few good responses...i'll go with the sorta like whose ur daddy thing only the grunt ran away, so instead, Master Chief "would have been his daddy". it actually sorta makes sense that way.

  • Or maybe it has something to do with the forerunners like the other guys have said! :-P

  • Maybe its like 'Who's your Daddy!?' but the guy he's saying it to is already dead.

  • I've beat the game about four times, and read all the Halo books, and you know what? I still can't give you an answer to that question I was mulling over just yesterday. The people running this website sure could though.

  • ...Bungie! You had better answer this question in Halo 2 The Last Battle(fictional name)...

The forrunners could have been hes daddy, becuase of a descendant, but he rebels and trys to destroy the ring.

  • I also wonder this. At first I thought it had something to do with the grunt but that doesn't seam right. Then I thought he was talking about the actual Halo but that makes no sense. I am also a huge Halo fan. I have read all the books. Lots of Fanfiction on H.B.O. I have done lots of research. I still don't understand that line. Makes no sense it does. Could someone from Bungie please explain this for me? It would stop a lot of frustration for not only me but for lots of other people. Thank You! :)

  • One of Sgt. Johnson's lines during combat is, "I would have been your daddy, but that dog beat me over the fence!" Draw your own conclusions. You can find the voice sample by searching in the HBO archives.

  • I think one of the marines say it in the level... "I would have been your daddy if the dog hadn't gotten to you first" that's the entire line...
