    We have a ton from King of Queens as well- such as "you just love your Lou Ferrigno, don't you????"

    I love the end of Raylan Givens' facedown of Wynn Duffy in the episode "Full Commitment" of JUSTIFIED:

    The next time we have a conversation, there won't be a conversation.​

    ... which is followed up in a subsequent episode "The Gunfighter," when another Deputy Marshal drags a reluctant Givens to interrogate Duffy. Givens says he doesn't to go because the last time he talked to Duffy, he told him about the no conversation next time. The other Marshal says Duffy won't remember the remark and anyway, if he does, just say it's a different conversation.

    So when they find Duffy, the first thing Duffy says to Givens is, "I recall the last time we spoke, you said 'the next time we have a conversation, there won't be a conversation."

    Givens looks relatively nonplussed and then says "This is a different conversation."

    You're right about too many from Firefly but nevertheless I have to go with "My days of not taking you seriously are certainly coming to a middle."

    SO MANY Bob's Burgers quotes!

    “It’s not a lie if you tell it to vegetarians. You taught us that!”
    “I did teach you that.”

    Lots of M*A*S*H quotes come to mind, here's one:

    "I'll carry your books, I'll carry a torch, I'll carry a tune, I'll carry on, carry over, carry forward, Cary Grant, cash and carry, carry me back to Old Virginia, I'll even 'hari-kari' if you show me how, but I will not carry a gun!"

    Here's the full "Live Turkey Broadcast":

    OMG I miss that show. Will they ever get it on Netflix?

    Ha! The WKRP turkey thing is classic.

    I agree that M*A*S*H and Friends both had a million great quotes. Both are big favorites of mine. I've seen every M*A*S*H episode so many times I just couldn't watch anymore.

    I've seen every Friends episode at least a dozen times so far. Such great characters and it never felt like they got anywhere near any jumping of the shark.

    Or Larry from Newhart: Women, you can't live with them, you can't put them in a sack.

    And as others have mentioned, a ton from The Simpsons, including a simple one from Homer like: Be more funny!

    ...and I should add, I've only seen that episode of Newhart once, when it originally aired, and I still remember that line.

    The Colonel, from "Soap":

    My mind's sharp as a tack, knock on wood <raps his knuckles on the table top> .. Come in!"

    And how many times have you actually used this one yourselves: "Missed it by >this< much."

    Who can forget "I'll be in my bunk"? Or how about "I've made a huge mistake."

    From Cheers:

    Cliff Clavin: What's the matter, Norm?
    Norm Peterson: Uh, oh, nothing. Just that my shorts are binding up on me.
    Cliff Clavin: Just stand up and straighten them out.
    Norm Peterson: Nah. I'll give 'em five minutes. Sometimes they self-correct.
    Diane Chambers: The level of conversation in this bar could not sink any lower.
    [Dave Richards walks into the bar]
    Dave Richards: [to Diane] Hiya wonderbuns.
    Diane Chambers: "Going down"!


    and from Scrubs:

    Dr. Molly Clock: Perry, no one's pure evil, I mean yeah some people have a hard outer shell, but inside everybody has a creamy center.
    Dr. Perry Cox: There are, plenty of people here, on this particular planet who are hard on the outside and hard on the inside!
    Dr. Molly Clock: So they have more of a nougaty center?
    Dr. Perry Cox: Lady. People aren't chocolates. Do you know what they are mostly? Bastards. Bastard coated bastards with bastard filling. But I don't find them half as annoying as I find naive bubble-headed optimists who walk around vomiting sunshine.
    Dr. Molly Clock: I'm touching your creamy center!
    Dr. Perry Cox: Oh I am so very angry that I'm going to find someone to kill just to prove her wrong.




    Dr. Cox: I suppose I could riff a list of things that I care as little about as our last week together. Lemme see, uhh... Low-carb diets. Michael Moore. The Republican National Convention. Kabbalah and all Kabbalah-related products. Hi-def TV, the Bush daughters, wireless hot spots, 'The O.C.', the U.N., recycling, getting Punk'd, Danny Gans, the Latin Grammys, the real Grammys. Jeff, that Wiggle who sleeps too darn much! The Yankees payroll, all the red states, all the blue states, every hybrid car, every talk show host! Everything on the planet, everything in the solar system, everything everything everything everything everything everything - eve - everything that exists - past, present and future, in all discovered and undiscovered dimensions. Oh! And Hugh Jackman.

    I loved Dr Cox's tirades! He was hilarious.

    I clearly remember the 'bastard coated bastards with bastard filling' line. LMAO

    Two from Firefly:
    "Looks like we got here just in time. What does that make us?"
    "BIG DAMN HEROES."
    "Ain't we just?"

    And...
    "I can kill you with my brain."
