    I got to thinking about this after last week's How I Met Your Mother "Swarley" episode.

    What are the best sitcom catchphrases?

    One of mine'd have to be "How YOU doin'?"

    Ever seen Extras on BBC? The entire second series makes fun of how trite it can be when an entire sitcom bases its humor on one catchphrase.

    Seemed pretty appropriate for this thread...

    Seinfeld has a gazillion.

    "Helloooo!"
    "Shrinkage!"
    "I'm out."

    Arrested Development
    "I've made a huge mistake."
    "No touching!" (two threads in the same minute!)

    I was going to post this as well. Even worse, I was going to post the catchphrase. Thanks for reminding me that it would have been a bad idea by your not posting it. :)

    Another one from Seinfeld:
    yada yada yada...

    This one is simple, but classic.
