TV's Influence on Babyboomers


Are there times when you catch yourself quoting from TV shows or commercials during everyday conversations?  Here's a partial list of catch phrases brought to us courtesy of television in the 50's, 60's and 70's.  See how many of these are a part of your normal vocabulary:
"Baby, you're the greatest."
"Just the facts, ma'am."
"Sorry 'bout that, Chief."
"You bet your sweet bippy."
"Whatchoo talkin' 'bout, Willis?"
"Try it, you'll like it!"
"Where's the beef?"
"I can't believe I ate the whole thing."
"Bang, zoom!"
"You're the ginchiest."
"Say goodnight, Gracie."
"And awaaaaaayyy we go!"
"It takes a licking and keeps on ticking."
"Melts in your mouth, not in your hand."
How many more can you think of???
