    Not sure, but you reminded me of a similar one. . .

    Baldrick: "I have a cunning plan. . ."

    If it occurs many times within a particular episode, it is a catchphrase for that episode. The belly button "Hellooo" is a perfect example. It was used throughout the episode whenever the characters met up with each other. It was the catchphrase for that episode, even if it didn't recur in other episodes.

    Here come da judge
    Sock it to me
    Well, excuuuuuuuuuse me

    I'd probably vote Get Smart for the show that provided the most used catch phrases - in the strictest sense of "catch phrase". I remember hearing "missed it by that much" and "would you believe" all the time in public. Seinfeld gets my vote for the show with the most memorable quotes. [And why has no one mentioned "no soup for you"?] I don't recall many of them being used as true catch phrases, except maybe "yada, yada, yada" or "not that's there anything wrong with that" but there were probably 50 or 60 of them that would easily be recognized by most of us. For example, "master of my domain" is a classic quote but I don't hear it being used as a catch phrase.

    Sketch comedy rather than sitcom, but too great not to post:

    SNL:
    Well now, isn't that Special?!
    Who could it be? Could it be...Satan???
    Yeah, yeah... That's the ticket

    "Let's be careful out there"

    "Engage!" (as well as "Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!" and "Shut up Wesley!" :p and others)

    "Freakin' sweet!" - not sure if that was a one-timer or not; if it was, then "Giggidy!"

    "Giddy-up!" (don't recall this one being mentioned

    "And that's the way it is" (and others)

    Not a phrase IN a sitcom, but a phrase inspired by one, and one that is most definitely not my favorite and I wish had never been coined...

    "Jump the shark"

    No, it was 'Not the Mama', because he was always hitting his father as he said it.

    "Disss...missed!"

    "What... is... this... man... doing... here?" (Usually screamed)
