Never saw the A-Team? How can you raise kids without the guidance and moral certitude that B.A. Baracus - Mr. T in perhaps his greatest role - brought to the world? "I ain't got time for your jibber jabber!"

Well said, T. Well said.


All I remember is "I pity the fool" -- and I think that was the "real" Mr. T, when he wasn't "acting."


Ren and Stimpy rocked. And the wazzup Budweizer commercial had it's moment, too. Let me enlighten you.



Unlike me who can clearly recall almost all of the phrases on the list, clearly your mind was filled with useless stuff like the Yalta Conference, Henry VIII's fourth wives, the periodic table and F Scott Fitzgerald.


Wow - "Scooby Doo" ended nearly every episode with the unmasking of the villain who would say sneer a permutation of "I would've gotten away with it if it hadn't been for you meddling kids!"

I remember "Maude" fondly from when I was wee - when her husband would get under her skin, she would growl "God'll get you for that, Arthur".

The one I can't believe isn't on here (and was a staple of my mom's when calling all five kids for dinner)was from the kid's show "The Electric Company" - "HEY YOU GUUUUUUUUUYS!" I believe it was hollered by Rita Moreno on the show, loudly and often.


Karen, I think your cultural life is incomplete without The Chappelle Show. Will you be offended? Absolutely. But, oh, you will enjoy it so much...

Now I realize how much of a political junkie I am; I know (and have used and/or thought) Joseph Welch's remarks, made a dozen years before I was born, more often than 99% of these.
