(That’s what she said.)
Thanks for the contribution. Hoping to add a new ‘quote of the decade’ everyday until January 1
That is a bold goal, TVA. I hope they are all portrayed with such lovely thought bubbles.
I’ve got 2 from Lost –
“Where are we?” – Charlie (1st season)
“We have to go back!” – game changing quote from Jack in the 3rd season finale.
“DAMNIT” – Jack Bauer, 24
For 9 years and 7 seasons this phrase has been used, it deserves to be recognized DAMNIT! ha
Lets Get To Work!
ANGEL – last line of series :sob: finale
And I will add my favorites with yours 😛
I say this one way too often: “What the what?” ~ Liz, 30 Rock
SATC is probably my most quoted, here is a fav: “Some people are settling down, some people are settling and some people refuse to settle for anything less than butterflies.” ~Carrie
“Last week most of us were strangers. But we’re all here now. And God knows how long we’re going to be here. But if we can’t live together—we’re gonna die alone.” ~Jack, LOST (WE HAVE TO GO BAAAACK!)
The quote that I always think of is one from the first season of HIMYM.
Barney: It’s gonna be legen-… wait for it… and I hope you’re not lactose intolerant because the second half of that word is DARY.
Awesome idea. Might I submit:
“I’ve made a huge mistake”
from Arrested Development
And I second “That’s what she said” and Jack Bauer’s “Damnit.” These all need to be iconic quotes, not just funny one-offs.
The O.C.: Welcome to the O.C. b*tch
House: Everybody lies
Nip/Tuck: Tell me what you don’t like about yourself
Battlestar Galactica: So say we all
Scrubs: Dr. Cox: I suppose I could riff a list of things that I care as little about as our last week together. Lemme see, uhh… Low-carb diets. Michael Moore. The Republican National Convention. Kabbalah and all Kabbalah-related products. Hi-def TV, the Bush daughters, wireless hot spots, ‘The O.C.’, the U.N., recycling, getting Punk’d, Danny Gans, the Latin Grammys, the real Grammys. Jeff, that Wiggle who sleeps too darn much! The Yankees payroll, all the red states, all the blue states, every hybrid car, every talk show host! Everything on the planet, everything in the solar system, everything everything everything everything everything everything – eve – everything that exists – past, present and future, in all discovered and undiscovered dimensions. Oh! And Hugh Jackman.
It’s not really a quote, but “FRAK!” Becuase I use it all the time. I’m also a fan of “So say we all.” Though I think the best quote from BSG has to be, “You know, I do know about farming.”
I also think anything from Gilmore Girls is applicable.
And if you don’t use, “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.” I will cry.
Here’s one from Tiger Woods: “Uh-oh.”
Another fun column/topic would be taking submissions of the funniest quotes from the decade’s funniest comedy, Arrested Development.
I would love to see some quotes from The Wire -the greatest show of the decade in my opinion.
To name just a few:
“All in the game yo, all in the game” Omar Little
“Happy now, b*tch? Bunk Moreland
“What the f*ck did I do?” Jimmy NcNulty
