Why does i gcónaí remind everyone of Snape?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, in the middle of the final battle (the memory flashback). Though to be fair, it's not an exact quote...

The most famous version of that quote says: "After all this time?" "Always." "Always?" "Always." is a pretty good approximation. Although it reminds me a bit of a conversation about sanitary products between two women.

Really? I never actually watched the movie, so I was thinking of the quote in the book. "Always" is really said three times?

If "i" means "in" (doesn't it?) would it be easier to think of "I gcónaí" as "In perpetuity"?
