So many old-timey quotes! Not even my mom uses those. I'm sad they don't have "Four, eight, fifteen, sixteen, twenty-three, fourty-two." Frown

What would this list's anime counterpart read like, I wonder...?
evanASF27 11-28-2006 05:11 PM
Columbo and Maxwell Smart had two of the better quotes in my opinion.

Of course this is only American TV we're talkin about... which I have no problem with, but I could only imagine what memorable quotes came from the UK and other nations.

As for an Anime top 100 list... I'm certainly intrigued by the idea, just not sure if it could be done.

I've used way to many of those.

Interesting fact, according to some reports, when Redd Fox actually had a heart attack on the set of another t.v. show he was in, everybody around him thought he was doing that bit.

Well...these are all pretty much cultural touchstones, whereas Lost is sort of a pop culture phenomena and apparently even some of the fanbase is growing tired of it, or thats what I periodically hear from people who watch it.

edit: Okay wait, two of those are from speeches...and the "ow my nose" thing, wasn't that just from a single episode of the brady bunch? Single lines of dialogue are catchphrases now? Then again I always hated that show so I could be wrong, I've managed to avoid seeing too many reruns of it thankfully.

I thought catchphrase implied some level of repetition

_"Hey hey hey!" (Fat Albert, "Fat Albert")

Why are there two of these? Is it because they were said by different people? I would have said that Fat Albert would have won, but yeah, the live-action movie...

Yeah I heard about that, and you're right. I don't know if its true or just an urban myth these days but people though he was doing a skit when in fact, he wasn't.

That is an interesting idea. Should we try to have a go at it anyway?
Peace.

I imagine that PCF could come up with a list on its own one way or another. Asking around on the rest of the Internets would be a messy affair, not to mention potentially unpleasant, since it could involve having to deal with the--*cough*--"hoi poloi" of anime society...

But anyway! I think it might be interesting to see what we could come up with. But where to start?

"Welcome to the OC, bitch."


Excuse me?
No. They should replace that with, "Dammit, Jim, I'm a doctor not a _______" I use that one all the time and I'm not even a fan of Star Trek, nor am I a doctor.

Isn't that supposed to be "a magician"? I wasn't that big on Star Trek but at least the line kicked ass.
Peace.
