One of my difficult challenges in working on the second edition of the Yale Book of Quotations is to determine the most famous TV catchphrases of recent decades (difficult because I haven't watched many of even the most popular shows). If any of you have watched enough modern TV to be able to help, I would welcome any feedback as to which of the following are "top 100 TV catchphrases of all time" material. Any input on relative fame/cultural importance ranking among these catchphrases would also be very valuable. And, of course, suggestions of other very famous catchphrases from recent shows would be great.
That 70s Show
Pikachu, I choose you!
Hooraay, I'm useful!
Prettyyyyy, prettyyyy, prettyyyy, pretty good.
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Let's hug it out, bitch.
How I Met Your Mother
Big Bang Theory
That's what she said.
Some of these I have never heard of even though I have watched the shows to some extent (That 70s Show, Futurama, Curb Your Enthusiasm).
