Teutonic

EMILY: So you’re just going to let this lead-footed Teutonic chambermaid drag your mother into a public forum and humiliate her, is that it?

Teutonic, literally meaning pertaining to the Teutons, a Germanic or Celtic tribe mentioned by classical authors. Even though the evidence that they were Germanic is rather shaky, the word is more often used as a poetic way to refer to German and Austrian people.
