Quotes & Catchphrases: Part IV

Some of you may be wondering why I started with Part V. Well that’s simple, this is a countdown, isn’t it???

While I usually keep my posts relevant to business and business development I thought not only would these quotes and catchphrases be fun, but I also think that we consider TV only as entertainment. Well it is, for us, but for someone else it is just as much a business as anybody else.

In TV, very few things stand the test of time. Sure we have reruns on TV land, but of every show rerun there are dozens, if not hundreds that have been lost to oblivion. These catchphrases have stayed on our conscious minds weathering the test of time. While many of these TV shows may not be on, they have spurned lasting careers of many individuals.

Note: to read answers, highlight below each catchphrase.

    TV is business, but moreover it’s the goo that unifies our culture. Western civilization’s culture, that is. There’s the good, the bad and the ugly in equal amounts. Catchphrases and water cooler chats about the latest network drivel make up a huge chunk of how we communicate. Our shared language of stuff some writers made up to get our attention, draw us in, so we can be sold something we don’t need.
