But I have to know.

I think it says so much about people that everyone so far has felt the need to weigh in on what Ralph means rather than opting for #3. Go LJ!

Ralph may dream of being a viking, but I bet Lisa dreams of Metafilter.

very much the "excels at"
Like Anya's quote about Xander being a viking in the sack.

Huh. I always thought that meant he liked to wear a helmet in bed.

#1, but with the caveat that he equates "viking" with "finally being really awesome in my life", aka "I can finally excel."

I can't quite get at it, and am dying at the level of intensity in the MeFi thread, but it's more like...while he's asleep, he's awesome, not that he's awesome at sleeping itself. I know it requires some self-possession on Ralph's part but he's broken character before, and that's what the joke's leading up to, I think, in the whole scene.

Huh, the first definition never even occurred to me, which apparently places me firmly in the minority. Now I can't stop thinking about this!!
