“I love it when a flan comes together”

"I love it when a plan comes together” was a catchphrase of the fictional character Colonel John “Hannibal” Smith (played by George Peppard) in the American action-adventure television series The A-Team. “I love it when a flan comes together” is a popular food joke.

“I love it when a flan comes together” was posted on Twitter by Scott McNulty on April 13, 2007. “sugar, eggs, milk...I love it when a Flan comes together..” was posted on Twitter by Brian Sinai on June 13, 2009. “Eggs, milk, cheese, pastry - I love it when a flan comes together” was posted on Twitter by King Gruntfuttock on February 28, 2010. “Pastry… Egg… Filling… I love it when a flan comes together” was posted on Twitter by Alex Duffy on August 4, 2011. “Eggs - check.

Wikipedia: John “Hannibal” Smith
Colonel John “Hannibal” Smith is a fictional character and one of the four protagonists of the 1980s action-adventure television series The A-Team, played by George Peppard. The producers originally had James Coburn in mind to play the part of Hannibal, but it eventually went to Peppard.

The character—which was based loosely on former United States Army Special Forces officer Bo Gritz—appeared on The A-Team from its beginning in 1983 until its end in 1987. The character was played by Liam Neeson in the 2010 film adaptation. His often spoken line “I love it when a plan comes together” was included in TV Land’s “The 100 Greatest TV Quotes and Catch Phrases” in 2006.

Wikipedia: Crème caramel
Crème caramel (French: [kʁɛm kaʁamɛl]), flan, or caramel custard is a custard dessert with a layer of clear caramel sauce, contrasted with crème brûlée which is custard with a hard caramel layer on top.
