|Television quotes have a way of working themselves into our vocabulary, if only for a short time. Our youth, in particular, will use a catchphrase repeatedly, especially if it drives adults crazy. The best way to destroy the annoyance of a silly quote is for an adult to use it. Before I retired, I would use some of these quotes in my math classroom: When a student got a hard algebra problem correct in front of the whole class - "You da man!" or "Go Chloe! Go Chloe!" If a student tried to start a distraction, they got a firm glare, a pointed index finger, and "Homey don't play that game." While some quotes are with us for only a short time, some stay in our collective memory forever, especially with syndication, cable, and the internet. This quiz and its previous companion will cover some of the catchphrases that found their way into my classroom. I'll leave it to you to imagine the circumstances when they occurred, but I remind you, I ran a very family-friendly classroom. I'll give you the quote; you pick the show with which it is most associated. I hope you enjoy the memories invoked by these quotes, most of which come from TVLand's list of their 100 top TV catchphrases. Good luck!|
