Here's some of the catch phrases I remember most from my short period of my existence on this big blue marble. I've got ten catch phrases listed, accompanied by where they originated, as well as their respective decades.
- "Where's the Beef?"
Wendy's 80's / Clara Peller
- "Whatchoo Talkin' Bout Willis?"
Different Strokes 80's / Gary Coleman
- "You Look Mahvelous"
Saturday Night Live 1984 / Billy Crystal
- "Flick my BIC"
BIC lighters 70's advertising slogan
- "I Dare ya"
EverReady Batteries 70's / Robert Conrad
- "I've fallen.. and I can't get up"

- "Hey Hey hey"
What's Happening? 70's / Haywood Nelson aka Dwayne

And before any of you ask... yes I use some of these catch phrases to this day. I'm not lying when I say that I used four of these catch phrases quite recently (hence my idea for this post!) I'm not a total nerd however.. I usually only reserve these particular catch phrases when I'm participating in tomfoolery.
So.. are there any catch phrases from years past that are stuck in your head and just begging to get out?
