NEW YORK (AP) -- Sometimes it takes only a word, or just a few, to become immortalized in television history.

The TV Land cable network has compiled a list of the 100 greatest catchphrases in TV, from the serious -- Walter Cronkite's nightly signoff "And that's the way it is" -- to the silly: "We are two wild and crazy guys!"

The network will air a countdown special, "The 100 Greatest TV Quotes & Catch Phrases," over five days starting December 11.

"We have found that television is such a huge part of baby boomers' DNA that it makes sense that so much of America's pop culture jargon has come from TV," said Larry Jones, TV Land president.

The greatest number of moments, 26, come from the 1970s. TV Land identified nine moments from this decade. Ten are from commercials, and 28 from comedies, including six from "Saturday Night Live."

That was fun to read.

I would have went with "Marcia,Marcia,Marcia" instead of "Oh,my nose"

Hey Linnie, I think you're right. I remember it being "Elizabeth Honey....."
More missing phrases:
"Make It So" and "Engage" - Star Trek Next Generation
"Beam Me Up Scotty" - Star Trek
"I'm Out!!!!" and "Not that there's anything wrong with it" from Seinfeld.

"Resistance is futile" (Picard as Borg, "Star Trek: The Next Generation") I would think this one should be attributed to the beautiful Jeri Ryan ( Seven of Nine )

I always thought it was, "Elizabeth, it's the big one!" i.e., he's having a heart attack and he's on his way.

I agree that "resistance is futile" shouldn't be attributed to Picard. The Borg in general said that long before assimilating him.

"Don't have a cow, man"

"Beam me up, Scotty" should definitely be on that list.

Peace.


Would anyone like to start a companion thread to this one . . . catch phrases from movies?

Please?

Me love you long time.
