Who said "Good times, good times"?

I think it is from a movie. It is a line a guy says very casually like after reminiscing about something (maybe closing his eyes and rubbing his stomach, as if he was thinking about eating, kinda reminds me it would be Joey from "Friends", but I don't think so)..."good times, good times"
Anyone know what the he** I am talking about as it is killin me?

Adam Carolla says it on the radio advice show Love Lines....though I don't know if he is the originator, or if he is just copying it from a movie.

It's the "Delicious Dish on NPR" skit from Saturday Night Live, when they interviewed Pete Schweddy (Alec Baldwin) of "Season's Eatings" about his Schweddy Balls.

That's funny b/c I say this all the time!

"Good times.... good times" where the first good times is a little stronger and louder and the second one is lower and fades.

All these people are correct about where "Good times" is said, but it's not where I heard it said the way that I say it.

I'm probably wrong here, but I want to say it came from the movie "Dazed and Confused"

If that's not it, I hope someone comes along who can finally place it.

That's what I thought of.

Bill Mcneil reminiscing about his youth:

"I remember Christmas at our house. My father went out for a night on the town, which of course turned into a week. And when he got back my mother would say to him, 'Is there anything you won't drink?' He would respond 'Yeah! Poison! I'm saving it for you!' Ah, good times."

I've been saying it for years, as well. Not sure where I picked it up from, though.

Gerry Blank in Strangers with Candy has a pretty nice "good tiiiiimes" that she uses in about every episode.

I'm not sure what you're thinking of...but I immediately thought of Goodfellas, when Ray Liotta (I think in voice over) says something to the effect of "These were the good times" or "Those were the good times"...not sure, haven't seen the movie in a while.

wait...someone jogged the memory by saying Alec Baldwin...what did he say when he patted Ben Stiller on the butt in the bathroom in "Along Came Polly"? You know when he was peeing? It could be from that...I think it is...

Alec Baldwin said "good things" in Along Came Polly

I also first heard the phrase from Hartman in Newsradio

Was he saying it "happily" or was he nevous when saying it?

This reminds me of Annie Hall's "Oh. Well. La de da. La de da. La. La.." or something to that nature.

I guess he doesn't know black people.

Didn't they say it every time that SNL skit was done? I remember someone who hosted SNL and played a guest on the show said it-I think it was Neve Campbell.

I agree, its from SNL - Delicious Dish

There were quite a few episodes of that sketch and that was their catch phrase.

Yeah, it was definitely SNL. I used to say it, but then I stopped when almost everybody else was saying it too. Now it's one of my pet peeves.

my vote goes to phil hartman on newsradio too, except its the episode w/ the vending machine sandwiches. everyone said they're horrible, but it reminded bill of his youth.

he said good times twice while reminiscing.

I think this is one of those sayings that has no discernable origin.
