David Duchovny On the Origin of "Broner"
Admit it. It's your favorite neologism of Season One.
I ran into David on set today and asked him the burning question we've all been wondering...
What is the origin of the word "Broner?"
DD: "I wanted to create a new word for a Hank/Charlie rant. So I spent about ten minutes thinking about it. I initially thought of "brorection." Rejected it. And then it suddenly came to me...Broner."
Duchovny pitched the joke to Kapinos. And a few weeks later -- in episode 3 -- "broner" was unleashed upon our lexicon.
So there you have it. The humble origins of arguably the best portmanteau of 2007.
