Where did this catchphrase come from?

That’s the beauty of it! It doesn’t DO anything!

Just kidding! :slight_smile:

sorry, so sorry, you have a lovely place …

Been around a long time, in various guises

OK, how about this one?

Request for some object or action
“No problem!”

Request for another object or action
“No problem!”

Request for a yet one more object or action.

Sounds like Johnny Carson’s Midday Movie pitchman character:

“No Job? No problem.
No Credit? No Problem
Can’t pay us? Then we got a problem”

as well as
“Take the 235 to the Slauson cutoff. Get out, cut off your Slauson.”
And “Drive til you get to… The Fork in the Road.”

Here’s mine:

Nyet. Nein. Non. NooOO.

I’ve googled and there are a few hits for it in similar situations as I would use it, but I can’t find a source. I always say it the same, with the first three words very clipped and the “no” deep and drawn out. That makes me think I got it from somewhere. Any ideas?

That sounds like something Dr. Cox would have said on Scrubs. I can’t pinpoint which episode, but it was one where he ranted and raved at JD. (Yeah, like that helps narrow it down… :smiley: )

Oh, no, not that again. Did that one ever get solved?

Note the following screams. Seems Eugene was not careful.

Señor Wences was a guest on “The Muppet Show” in 1980.

Put ze candle beck!

Yes, as Jenaroph linked.

That was just me pushing an old, old line.

The real one was ‘sorry, so sorry, you have a lovely place …’ which is not an exact quote but is similar to what the road warrior girl said in Weird Science as they left the party after Wyatt and Gary stood up to them. I use it a lot in webspace, not so much irl.

Great knockers!
