Goodnight Irene, I Can't Come Up With a Title

Welp, once again I'm on the fail train for a post, although at least I should get this one actually scheduled to publish at the correct time, instead of leaving my Monday post languishing in drafts after I corrected a typo.  OK two typos.  But I forgot to hit publish so my bad, it was late.  And now this is a Seinfeld post - remember, it was a show about nothing? 
A creative blogger would have changed this to "blog" but today, I am not that blogger.

Ooh, I got something:  Seinfeld - do you use any catchphrases from the show in your day-to-day life?  The one Jeff and I use, and whoever starts it will wait for the other to respond correctly, is "Ugh, I hate people." Yeah, they're the worst."  Let's hear your favorite catchphrases from Seinfeld (or another sitcom) that YOU use.  Comment below - that's where the real post will be.

  1. "Everything is a Seinfeld episode" is a frequent saying I use! Working in healthcare? OMG.

  2. We have a couple. From Seinfeld, especially in a social situation we'll say, "Watch out, he's a close talker" or "quiet talker" and from Everybody Loves Raymond on one show Debra was trying to make the point that Raymond wouldn't say I love you - which he swore he did. So, she says, "I love you." and once he replied, "Habadabada" then the next time he said, "And IIIIIIIIII youuuuuuu." We do that one a lot lol.

    1. Oh yes - the close talker! And I remember those Raymond quotes - that was a good show for all kinds of fun quotes!

  3. A similar quote from The IT Crowd: People. What a bunch of bastards. (spoken in an Irish accent) :-)

  4. I am one of the few who has never seen Seinfeld (or Friends, I know, I know - social fail), but we are much more apt to quote Princess Bride or Monty Python around our house. I also didn't realize how much we quote Fiddler on the Roof until my new daughter-in-law said my son "forced" her to watch the movie. Right of the top of my head I gave her 3 oft-repeated quotes (including "but don't be FRIGHTENED!" and "Do you love me? Do I WHAT?!?"), and at least now she'll get the reference :-)

    1. I have never seen Fiddler on the Roof! It's funny how what is so familiar to one person can be completely blank to another. I should see if it's playing online...now you've got me curious!

    2. Never watched Seinfeld much...I don’t particularly watch much tv. But like the last person said...the movie princess bride...I’m all over those qoutes!

  5. My fave, along with several dear friends, “Well, for f’s sake”. Frequently used by the Mountain on Game of Thrones. Seems totally appropriate when dealing with some new chemo side effect. And, always said with a smile

    1. LOL! Cursing a new side effect is completely appropriate. So sorry about the side effects, just from the ones I've experienced with medication (and now surgery), I know how bad it can be.

  6. We use one from the Simpsons where Homer says "Hey Weiner Boy, where do you think you're going?" - usually said to Pixie LOL And sometimes randomly we shout "Scully!" if we hear a word that sounds similar to that.

    Only because there are so many from Seinfeld...too many to post.
