More one-liners

Filed under: Language — Geeta Padmanabhan @ 9:49 pm


“Heeere’s Johnny,” Ed McMahon’s nightly introduction of Johnny Carson on
The Tonight Show for over 30 years, is ranked the number one most
memorable TV catchphrase in The 100 Greatest TV Quotes & Catchphrases.

Here are more one-liners I remember:

  • “There’s no place like home.”
  • “You talkin’ to me?”
  • “You can’t handle the truth!”
  • “That’ll be the day.”
  • Billy Crystal’s (Saturday Night Live) “You look mahvelous!”
  • Walter Cronkite’s “And that’s the way it is”
  • Just one more thing … (Columbo, Columbo)
  • Is that your final answer? (Regis Philbin, Who Wants to be a Millionaire)
  • Read my lips: No new taxes! (George H.W. Bush)
  • Space, the final frontier … (Capt. Kirk, Star Trek)


    1. 1. “Show me the money.” – from the movie Jerry Maguire
      2. “Greed is good.” – from the movie Wall Street
      3. “Kitne admi the.” – from the movie Sholay

      and last but not he least, the greatest of them ‘ll:

      I’LL BE BACK!!
