    So many people said 1., but I feel like a leader-type person said it first. Brandon, maybe?
    Was Sam the one who always said 3.?

    9. “Sex and the City” (Carrie Bradshaw)
    20. was said by Hans and Franz.

    Hee, the only classic quotes I can think of are from reality series:

    “The tribe has spoken.”
    “You worked it out, dawg!”
    “Who will be eliminated…next?”
    “Make it work.”
    etc.

    Hee, I know that one, Rae — “Big Brother!” (Julie Chen). Or in the words of Chicken George in All-Stars: “You are expected to expect the unexpected.”

    (OT, but are you still watching? Is there any chance Adam could lose this thing? :)

    P-C: Don’t blame Rae… I’m the non-Trekkie who put that quote up there. Bonus points for you for teaching me something!

    Eolivet – I think the 90210 chant was started by the girl from the Junior class who was helping them with the campaign… but Brandon is also a likely possibility.

    WLC – You are so right! It is indeed THEY killed Kenny. Pardon my typo, and thanks for the catch. And you also got the charcter on #9 right too.

    afrocurl – you’re on the right network with #9, just not quite the right show.

    Great job guys! I figured people might be stumped by #18, but I thought 15 & 16 were going to be easy. Very interesting.

    to fill in things not yet guessed by others:

    15: Alice
    16: All in the Family

    I knew too many early years spent watching old reruns would serve me well one day.

    afrocurl says:

    Thanks Jody. It had to be one of them, you know.

    18 sounds like something from Nickelodeon from back in the day like, Salute Your Shorts?
