1. Aye?

When you'd use it: If you doubt the authenticity of someone's story, or if you can't believe what they've just told you. As in: "Did ye, aye?"

2. Braveheart face

When you'd use it: When you're feeling proud of being Scottish, you're angry about The Vow, or if you've just done something patriotic, like preventing an attack on Glasgow airport by booting a burning terrorist in the balls.
