We were talking about these at work, and I remembered "WKRP in Cincinnati " and the word that got Johnny Fever fired in LA...

What we have here is a failure to communicate

One that I think of almost every time I sit down at the workbench or read a book is Johnny Fives "Input, Input".

Another is "I love the smell of Napalm in the morning".

Agreed, that there are many. One of my all time favorites is from WKRP, too...."As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!"

Problem is ;

 The one liner I remember best is the one that was actually musical .The whistled theme from " The High And The Mighty "

 I thought about it for the first time in many years after the ambulance with me and another person rolled away from a 747 crash .

  That was over Thirty five years ago .Still whistle the darned thing . As far as spoken ones I have to go with " You're gonna need a bigger boat "  T.B.

You do know how to whistle don't you Steve? Just put your lips together and blow? Followed of course by Bogie's rsponse.

And from Sgt. Schultz "I know nothing, nothing!"

I type on a tablet. Please excuse the terseness and the autocorrect. Not to mention the erors.

I loved watching Moonlighting with Cybill Sheperd and Bruce Willis back in the mid 80's. When they got into bad situations and Maddy would say to David "we are gonna get killed" but David Addison would come back with his famaous line........."no we won't, it's in the script!"

Whenever my wife is watching a movie or a series and says something like "how are they gonna get out of this one?"  I just reply to her the Bruce Willis one liner.........."it's in the script."

There are so many from "Full Metal Jacket," but most of them aren't appropriate for this forum.  However, there is:

"You're so ugly you could be a modern art masterpiece!"

This one's a family favorite.  I even got the t-shirt for my father.

Maybe not so much a one liner but i love to quote George C Scott's christmas carol whenever my wife complains its cold

"These are garments Mr Cratchet. Garments were invented by the human race as a protection against the cold. Once purchased, they may be used indefinitely for the purpose for which they are intended."
