    Lloyd Bentsen-Dan Quayle debate “Senator, you’re no Jack Kennedy.” A platform is nice, but a sound bite like that doesn’t hurt.

    “Where’s the beef”/“I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up”/“Let’s Get Mikey, He won’t eat it — he hates everything.” When commercials went viral the old-fashioned way.

     “Da plane” Everybody said it. Corny as it was, it became a pop-culture catchphrase and reminded everyone of the medium’s sway on the public.

    Adriana killed on The Sopranos/Stringer Bell killed on The Wire Not entirely unexpected but chilling proof that great writing and loyalty to story trumps the safety of fan favorites.

    There’s something about honesty from someone who normally employs snark that can generate  compassion.

    In a surreal, horrible, yet in a small way bittersweet it might be Tommy Cooper's final performance.

    Cooper was a very popular comedian in England in the 70s/80s.  Possible the perfect embodiment of "it's how you tell them" i.e. all his jokes were oldies, his magic tricks usually, deliberately, failed, and he couldn't stop laughing at his own jokes.  He was funny, endearing, be-Fezed and widely loved.

    He had a heart attack and died live on stage while being broadcast live on tv to millions in 1984.  It's exactly the sort of dumb thing he might fake, and people laughed in the theatre and all around the country in their living rooms until it was realised it wasn't a joke.

    The bittersweet part to me is that that is the perfect embodiment of "how he would have liked to die".

    Nice one.  It's one of my favourite written-for-a-tv-show songs because, like the theme song for "Dad's Army", it's an original composition but is perfectly representative of a previous era.

    I also like the fact they re-corded it several times because they were sick to death by being asked for the lyrics to the penultimate line "Gee is all just sour grapes" or "Gee our salad's sold by weight"...

    By the end of the show's run it was hilarious how so slowly and clearly they sang that line i.e. "GEE...OUR...OLD...LA ......SALLE......RAN......Great
