Where does “Now See” come from?

    It’s like an old 40s movie trope, there’s like a detective or police officer smoking a cigar and he says some variation of “now see” after everything he says.


    Is this from a specific movie? Or is it just a cultural trope?

    I think it comes from the huge ego of the speaker who always has to boss others around, now see?
