- "Baby, you're the greatest" (Jackie Gleason as Ralph Kramden, "The Honeymooners")


Seriously??? This above, "To the moon Alice..."?

- "Holy crap!" (Frank Barone, "Everybody Loves Raymond")


Yeah....I'm thinking no.

- "Suit up!" (Barney Stinson, "How I Met Your Mother")


This HAS to be a joke...right?

- "Would you believe?" (Maxwell Smart, "Get Smart")


Did they ever watch this show? "Missed it by that much..." is a waaaaay better catch phrase from Get Smart.


- "Here it is, your moment of Zen" ("The Daily Show")


Another one that just has to be a joke.

- "Welcome to the O.C., bitch" (Luke, "The O.C.")

That one made me throw up in my mouth a little bit.


Since they were so high on SNL, why no "Superstar!"?

I'm going to make a list of lists that suck, and this one is definitely going to be on it. (Will that last sentence be in next years catch phrase list if I say it twice?)


I completely agree, with the exception of the Frank Barone quote.

Everybody loves Raymond is a more recent show, but that doesn't mean that the phrase can't make the top 100, as long as it is a decent phrase that is used in the show often. To me, "Holy Crap" is an instant classic.

To add to the gripes, I'm not so sure commercials should be on this list. Basically, commercials are all catch-phrases. Certain ones become iconic, but it's just not the same thing. But if commercials are staying on the list, they should use Miller's "Man Law" over their slogan.

I also find it sad that a bunch of reality shows made the list, especially Paris Hilton. That right there is a prime example of how TV has degenerated into crap over the years. I HATE reality TV shows...

What's with the historical quotes? I don't think that JFK's TV catch phrase was "Ask not what your country can do for you...", nor is "One small step for man..." a catch phrase for Neil Armstrong.

I concur.

They need to take off commercials and speeches (JFK, Welch, Bentsen).

I probably would've added a Bart Simpson quote (either "eat my shorts" or "don't have a cow, man").

I've also would've added some more Seinfeld lines:

"That's gold, Jerry!"
"Serenity Now!"
"Hello, Newman"

Yeah good call on the Bart Simpson quotes.

And the Seinfeld lines but that last one should be more like...

"Hello, Newwwman." :-b ;-D
