Holy Crap! 'Everybody Loves Raymond' makes greatest quotes from TV list

MUMBAI: US broadcaster TV Land will count down The 100 Greatest TV Quotes and Catchphrases next month.

This will be a week-long look at the memorable sayings from American cartoons, television series, commercials and news programmes over the past 60 years.

The quotes that have made the cut include Donald Trump's parting shot to the loser of the business based reality show The Apprentice "You're fired", Holy crap! from the sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond which airs in India on Star World and MTV's iconic phrase I want my MTV! which was made legendary in the Dire Straits song Money For Nothing.

Another phrase that made it is Oh my God! They killed Kenny! from the acerbic animated show South Park. The phrase for the show X-Files The truth is out there is also present. In the news category not surprisingly Neil Armstrong's quip of "One small step for man one giant leap for mankind" after he became the first man to step on the moon is also present. Then there is the late JFK's call to his countrymen, "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country." The expression that film critics Roger Ebert and the late Gene Siskel used in rating a film "Two thumbs up!" or "Thumbs Down" that has influenced film critics who came after them is also there.

TV Land president Larry W. Jones says, "We have found that television is such a huge part of Baby Boomers' DNA that it makes sense that so much of America's pop culture jargon has come from TV. We are sure that The 100 Greatest TV Quotes & Catchphrases will strike a chord with the TV
Generation and will illustrate the influence the medium has had on pop culture."
