Without a doubt, proper English, such of an gentleman, should make its return.

Here we have a prime example:

"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don't."
[Image: Vogon%2BShip.jpg]

Oh freddled gruntbuggly,
Thy micturitions are to me,
As plurdled gabbleblotchits,
On a lurgid bee,
That mordiously hath bitled out,
Its earted jurtles,
Into a rancid festering confectious inchulsphygnum. [drowned out by moaning and screaming]
Now the jurpling slayjid agrocrustles,
Are slurping hagrilly up the axlegrurts,
And living glupules frart and slipulate,
Like jowling meated liverslime,
Groop, I implore thee, my foonting turling dromes,
And hooptiously drangle me,
With crinkly bindlewurdles,
Or else I shall rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon,
See if I don't.

The most memorable Mr. Croup from Neverwhere:

[Answering the phone]
Mr. Croup: Croup and Vandemar, the Old Firm, obstacles obliterated, nuisances eradicated, bothersome limbs removed and tutelary dentistry undertaken.

And when it comes to virtues of chivalry, there's no better gentleman to ask than Chaucer. *cough*
Patience is a conquering virtue.
The learned say that, if it not desert you,
It vanquishes what force can never reach;
Why answer back at every angry speech?
No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what,
You will be taught it, whether you will or not.

--GEOFFREY CHAUCER, The Canterbury Tales, "The Franklin's Tale"

If we allow ourselves to look back into the past, while still progressing forward, I am sure we will see a return of the ways of gentleman and will have the opportunity to take pleasure in witnessing distinguished man of eloquence in the future.

Just like this particular specimen:

"There's some men coming to kill us. We've got to kill them first."

Though we should be cautious how far back we may travel and what exactly we want to bring back with us...
