There was a movie with following scene (to the best of my recollection):
Manager: What should be the color of this pill for market, orange or purple?
Scientist: [Delves into the intricacies and complexity of the chemicals/side effects etc. of the pill, pointing out many facts about the pill etc.]
Manager: Orange/purple it is then.
Maybe it was not even orange or purple, but the sentiment is that scientist came up with a lot of facts and reasons why/why not they should/should not choose some color or the other, without giving any hint of color is suitable, where the manager just decides on color X.
