    Sadly for me most of my catch phrases are from ‘Blue Streak’ an 18 year old film that few saw and less remember.

    A friend’s girlfriend once drunkenly recounted to us that every time he took he took his clothes off for sex he would say “say hello to my little friend…..”

    They’re not together anymore!

    It’s the ………. in the world.

    ****!

    Naff, nerk and scrote.

    Edit. I’ve just understood Rusty Spanner’s problem with the swear filter.

    Loads from The Wire. Used to sound really incongruous hearing white, middle-class English people using street-slang from a Baltimore based gang-crime TV show. Hardly even notice it anymore yo…

    “The names (insert surname) xxxxx, (insert forename) xxxxx (insert surname) xxxxx”
    “I see dead people”
    And..
    “I’ll be back”
    And, especially for here..
    “I’m serious, and don’t call me Shirley”

    The only reason the Father Ted one in there is because it was getting overly abused, AFAIK. It was done before my time though.

    Apart from
    “Round up the usual suspects” and
    “This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship” as well as “Here’s looking at you, kid” not to mention
    “We’ll always have Paris”, not forgetting
    “Off all the gin joints in all the world…”
    Casablanca gave us the most quoted line that no-one actually said
    “Play it again, Sam”

    Every time my colleague Dave asks me to do something: “I’m sorry Dave, I cannot do that.”

    Describing crap towns as wretched hives of scum and villainy.

    Colleage: Where you working next week?
    Me: London.
    Them: London?
    Me: Yes, London. You know – fish, chips, cup o’ tea, bad food, worse weather, Mary **** Poppins – London.

    I think some posters are confusing “common lexicon” with “lexicon of my mates / family.”

    Common lexicon: groundhog day
    Mates’ lexicon: so what is it?

    Rising intonation in statements, thanks to Neighbours / Home and Away etc

    Buffyspeak, more like.

    so what is it?

    I’ve never seen one before – no one has – but I’m guessing it’s a white hole.

    I know it was a book first, but “Catch 22” has undeniably made it, appears in dictionaries and everything.

    It saddens me that in the near future there’ll be a generation of people who can move a large object from point A to point B without invoking the Chuckle Brothers

    This might show my age, but “What are we today then Gilbert?”

    Too many Basil Fawlty idioms to list, but a huge number fit my personality and relationship. “Please try to understand this before one of us dies” was possibly overused at work.

    I love it when a plan comes together.

    It saddens me that in the near future there’ll be a generation of people who can move a large object from point A to point B without invoking the Chuckle Brothers

    They were a bit derivative though – the moustashe, the mullet, the catch phrase.

    “To me, or not to me.”

    Lots from Billy Liar and Alan Partridge.

    “Textbook” is my most overused one from AP.

    “You come right out of a comic book”

    “Bullshit Mr Han man”

    Are some my friends and I use along with the other Bruce from Enter the Dragon lines above. My boss sometimes uses “Band Meeting” when we have meetings. It’s great because it’s only him and me that are Concords fans 🙂
