100 Catchphrases

NEW YORK -- They're lines you've heard so many times you find yourself repeating them years later: Catchphrases have a way of working themselves into your vocabulary.

And now TV Land has come up with a list of the 100 best.

Some come from television's golden age, like "The Honeymooners"' Ralph Kramden telling Alice, "Baby, you're the greatest."

Plus, there's the daytime television call on to "Come on down!" on "The Price is Right." And there's the late night classic, "Here's Johnny!"

From primetime, there's "Doh!" from Homer Simpson on "The Simpson," "Aaay" from Fonzie on "Happy Days" and "Holy (whatever), Batman!" from Robin on "Batman."

Sitcoms have their share of catchphrases, including Fred Sanford clutching his heart, looking to the heavens, and telling his late wife, "Elizabeth, I'm coming!"

"Saturday Night Live" alone has six entries. There are also phrases from commercials, along with Walter Cronkite's "CBS Evening News" signoff, "And that's the way it is."

Re: 100 Catchphrases

I thought the list was kind of uninspired. There were a few of them that I didn't agree with at all.... like "God'll get you for that" (Maude, "Maude&quot. Is that even a catch phrase? I didn't think she was popular enough to have people following in her foot steps. And where was Lil' Jon on the list? I hear people screaming Yeah, What, and Okaaaayyy! a helluva lot more than some of those so called catch phrases.
