Have you ever used quotes from TV shows in real life??

I was with a couple friends that I had just had dinner with and I was describing to someone else about this guy who was just shoveling chicken wings into his mouth. I mean he was just devouring them with no regard for human life. In my description I used the line from Aqua Teen Hunger Force "He finished with the meat...and then turned on the bones!"

Anyone else incorporate tv lines in real life?

Simpsons lines tend to make their way into daily conversation pretty often. None more than "D'oh".

I'll agree with the Simpsons. So many great lines. I love Scrubs as well, but I just can't fit line's like B.A.'s sig into my job at the brewery.

of course I do. Not that there's anything wrong with that.


Will break out the "TippyToe! TippyToe! Lemon Tree!" when having a conversation about a person and the subject of that conversation heads towards us.

when I'm around a special group of friends, I'd say about 30% of what we say is drawn from episodes of Seinfeld

Not everyone will appreciate this but I often say goodbye with the words "BE SEEING YOU!"

I think if it weren't for 'Hawkeye' Pierce I wouldn't be able to carry a conversation further than "hello".

I wonder how many know it from it's much more recent usage, Babylon 5, than the all-time classic it pays homage to?

Many times I find myself using phrases from Seinfeld - not that there's anything wrong with that.

Sometimes I use "Be seeing you" and feel like I should be also doing the salute.

My son likes, "I am not a number, I am a free man." A little odd for an 11 year old.

We also like certain M*A*S*H quotes.

I usually begin most of my conversations with "The following is rated R" ...

As long as you don't start them with "The following has been edited for content and formatted to fit your screen" you should be OK.

When my boss asks me to do something I sometimes like to reply, "I'm Rick James bitch!"

I like to use this Homer phrase: 'Mmmm.... donuts'. Replace donuts with my favorite food in the phrase.

I use that all the time. Once, shortly after starting at a new job, I used that line as I went out the door to take a break. When I came back in, my boss asked what was wrong; he thought I was pissed off for some reason.

Please forgive my ignorance, but is "Be seeing you" from originally?
