    One of my favorite lines is from 30 Rock

    Jack (Alec Baldwin) is wearing a tuxedo and lamenting about the scheduling of a formal event.
    Liz (Tina Fey) realizes the formal event is not that night.

    Liz: It's not tonight? Why are you wearing a tux?

    Jack: Its after six..what am I a farmer?

    This is probably kind of lame, but it cracks me up every time I re-visit it in my head because it's just so bizarre -

    One episode of Family Affair, a friend of Cissy's (whose husband was in the Army) was staying with them between apts or something. She was pregnant. One night she goes into labor. Cissy and Uncle Bill go to the hsp with her, but Buffy & Jody cannot sleep so they stay up late with Mr French. After everybody is back they all go to bed and sleep late.

    Scene opens with them all at the table eating breakfast. Jody says (something like) if we are having breakfast at lunch time, will we have lunch at dinner time?

    Buffy says 'Maybe we'll never catch up'.

    I guess it was just the execution or something, but it cracks me up to this day.

    Oh, one more that I heard again recently from Seinfeld.

    Elaine Benes (with a really bad Australian accent) - "Maybe the dingo ate your baby."

    From WKRP...already quoted in full above:

    "The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement!"

    More:

    Dr. Johnny Fever after Les mispronounces a famous golfer's name, turning down the microphone: "That's Chi-Chi Rodriguez."
    (pause)
    Les, back on the air: "Hopefully, MISTER Rod-ree-gweez will score over par next time."

    Jennifer, after Mr. Carlson asks her to get coffee: "I don't get coffee. We have an agreement."
    Les: "How does she get AWAY with that?"
    Herb: "Are you kidding?"

    Another one from WKRP:

    A guy named Steel says to Les: I like to think that a person's name says a lot about the type of person he is. What was your name again?

    On the "Happy Days" ep where they introduced Laverne and Shirley, Laverne is flirting with Richie, and playfully reaches for his pocket square and says "Is that for show or for blow?" - my family still quotes that to this day!

    On M*A*S*H, there is an ep where the MASH crew is having a party or doing something with the local orphanage and one of the orphans is hugging Klinger (who is in full regalia) and calls him "Mamasan" and he opens his dress and says, "Sorry kid-no maguffies!" We quote that all the time too...

    You don't wear a handkerchief as a decorative piece in a suit coat.

    Of course, most people - even those who wear suits regularly - *don't* still wear pocket squares.

    Yeah, I assumed he forgot the word "don't" in his post. I only ever see pocket squares when someone is trying to look super stylish, and most of the time, at least in places I go, that's not the right message to send.
