"My Scrubs Title"

One of the enquiring minds at MetaChat.org asked the assembled membership for their own personal “sitcom tagline”. Although originally intended to recycle lines from classic shows (How many of us would say “yadda yadda yadda” and how many would say “sit on it”?), it raised a creative side-question: If I were an original character on a sitcom, what would my catch phrase be?

Hard to say, so I ask my three regular readers which of the following would best fit a sitcom Wendell:

“Hello, anybody…”

“All seriousness aside…”

“That’s easy for me to say!”

“Put it on your blog.”

“And the crowd goes mild…”

“With the playing of our familiar theme…”

“I can’t legally do that in this state.”

“It’s (modern annoyance), not Krakatoa.” [Too obscure? Vesuvius?]

(Sincerely impressed) “I am leaving stains!”

(Angry) “Once more and I’m gonna forcably remove your… (various endings include: spleen, uvula, shakra, moustache, inner child, implants, elbows…)

“Did I have to wear clean underwear for that?”

“I didn’t survive (puberty, the 80s, my first marriage, the flesh-eating virus…) for this!”

“I can’t top that. Good night, anybody!”

If I ever could’ve put stuff between carch prases like that, I’d have been a sitcom writer.
