Hermes Conrad has a number of expressions he has used throughout the series. Generally speaking, this catchphrase consists of either "Sweet", "Great", or "Sacred"; an animal of some sort and a location, which as often as not has something to do with the Caribbean, Rastafarianism, or Africa in general. Additionally, the catchphrase may be a Conrad tradition as both Dwight Conrad and Labarbara Conrad have said similar lines (the latter with questionable results).
