Quotes & Catchphrases: Part V

I am an unapologetic TV fan. I don’t think anything more needs to be said (other than Battlestar Galactica, Lost, The Apprentice, Family Guy, 24, etc., etc., etc..) TV Land is running a short series entitled The 100 Greatest TV Quotes & Catchphrases. Getting a phrase into pop-culture is the ultimate form of word-of-mouth marketing. While none of these phrases will help you run your business better I thought it would be fun to post these here for you all to enjoy.

Below are catch phrases. If you want to know who said them highlight the blank area below each phrase to reveal it. How many do you know?

    Wow, you really are devoted to television aren’t you. Didn’t your mom ever tell you that it rots your brain?

  2. James says:

    Nah, only bad television rots your brain. Some television is – dare I say it – actually stimulating. If only there were more shows like “The Daily Show” and fewer like “Dancing With The Stars.”
