“No more half measures”
- Mike Ehrmantraut
We do that every summer
For some reason (I forget) Fred Sanford was expecting Lena Horne to visit. When the doorbell rings and he answers, it's Aunt Esther instead:
"That ain't Lena, that's somebody's Hyena!!"
Grandpa Simpson: "Son, you're as dumb as a mule and twice as ugly! If a stranger offers you a ride, I say take it!"
Woody: "whaddya say to a beer, Mr Peterson?"
Norm: "Going down"
Again to Esther: "You ought to put your face in some dough and make gorilla cookies!"
The stuff Herbert the perv neighbor on Family Guy says always cracked us up.
Bob Newhart show
"Howard, the wall is not going to fall down."
"No thanks to you."
And since there are a lot of Norm quotes
Hey Norm, what's shaking?
All 4 cheeks and a couple of chins.
I only looked through the last few pages worth...
Criminal Minds - Just about any quote they re-quote.
Wilfred - The re-quotes at the beginning of each episode.
Perception - Anything Dr. Daniel Pierce says.
Dexter - "Welcome back detective f***ing Morgan!" - Nearly all the things Dexter thinks or says, plus over half of the other lines almost anybody says on Dexter.
In general - Any sentence that uses the word "indelible", while not actually speaking of it in terms of an ink.
It's hard to remember them all and pick out any favorites. But, I often find myself so lost in thought, that I miss the rest (pretty much the whole of) the show. I heart having a TiVo to pause and read all these, to back-up and get a repeat of them when I don't quite hear it right, and to actually stop thinking about how true the quotes/sayings are, how many ways they apply, and actually watch the show.
from "the newsroom: bullies":
One of my favorites from The Simpsons, from one of the Treehouse of Horrors episodes. Burns asks Smithers for an ice cream scoop and when Smithers questions the choice he says "It's nor rocket science, it's brain surgery."
Jocelyn: Better a silly girl with a flower than a silly boy with a horse and a stick.
Way: It's called a lance. Hello?
Lots of good ones in A Knight's Tale.
EDIT: "horse and a stick" not "house and a stick" -- maybe I should spring for the real Swype keyboard; this Android one is not as clever.
Oops, just realized that is not a TV show.
But it's funnier than some of the lines quoted.
I think it would be "It's not brain science or rocket surgery", or " It's not rocket surgery, or brain science".
I've heard it both ways from multiple sources, and it's as old as blonde jokes...
Not trying to say you are wrong, just pointing out what I consider the ages-old ways the two mishmash together.
Except in the context of the quote wprager was talking about, they were using the ice cream scoop to scoop out brains, so it was, in fact, brain surgery.
Ah, I see.
I can't find the exact scripted quote, but Jeremy's interview for his gig on Sports Night is what got me hooked on the show.
NAME 3 THINGS!
Dana Whitaker: Name three things.
Jeremy Goodwin: Improve their free-throw percentage...
Jeremy Goodwin: Run the floor...
Dana Whitaker: Okay. One more.
Jeremy Goodwin: Tell Spike Lee to sit down and shut up?
Dana Whitaker: Well, welcome to Sports Night.
