Do you have anything that automatically triggers a "favorite catch phrase" from TV or the movies?

For example, I’ve been; listening to a lot of Irish radio stations lately. Each time they give an Internet address, it ends in “.ie” (for Eire) and I immediately think of Hadji in Jonny Quest going “AIEEE, JONNY!”

What (if anything) does it for you? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

My wife is a big reader of ingredients. When we’re at the grocery store she’ll sometimes ask me what’s in something and I’ll say “It’s…Polish chemicals”.

I may well be the only person to take catchphrases from Fifteen Storeys High but it amuses me.

Also, I’m still sad about Sean Lock.

“It could be worse” always triggers, “It could be raining,” from Young Frankenstein.

When someone says Dammit!, I usually toss out a Janet!

When I trip over something, I say “have that removed” from Stripes.

In my house it goes:

“By-products of what?”
“What kind of processes?”
“Processes that are perfectly safe.”

Anytime anyone asks anyone else ‘who they are’, I always expect the response to be: “I’m no one to be trifled with, that is all you ever need know”.

Of course, no one can ever start a sentence with “Surely…” any more.

Surely you can’t be serious?

He’s serious. And don’t call him Shirley.

Surely, you jest.

She hasn’t been around since 2016. :smiley:

Two of the most frequent are “No coffee” and “It’s been a long day”, both of which cause me to sing show tunes from How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

My first thought was “surely”, but that’s common.
At the beginning of Law and Order they usually end the opening with a humorous quip. On one they found the murder weapon which was a trophy. Lennie said something like, “they should have given her a plaque”.
Whenever there is a trophy, plaque, or even plaque psoriasis, I will give a variation of the Law and Order line. I adjust it based on the circumstance.

When I make a wrong turn while driving, I usually quote a line from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom: “Big mistake, Indy!”

“Yogi, I don’t think the Ranger’s going to like this…”

There are a lot of Malcolm Tucker quotes that have worked their way into my vernacular.

An exasperating situation usually elicits a “Christ on a bendy bus…” from me. When I met Peter Capaldi I told him this, and he wrote it on the headshot he was autographing.

We curse a lot at my office, which can take newbies by surprise. After we ended a conference call one day, I said to my long-time boss, about the dingbat security manager who’d been running the call, “Well he’s as useless as a marzipan dildo.” and the new guy in our office had a look on his face like, okay things are different here.

Your handle is appropriate! :rofl:

When someone says “Emergency,” I say “Everybody to get from street.”

I knew I should have taken that left turn at Albuquerque.
