The 100 Greatest TV Quotes & Catch Phrases

TV Land has compiled what it deems to be the 100 greatest lines from television. It's a pretty neat list (link below), and here are some of my favorites:

* "D'oh!" (Homer Simpson, "The Simpsons")
* "Holy (whatever), Batman!" (Robin, "Batman")
* "Holy crap!" (Frank Barone, "Everybody Loves Raymond")
* "I can't believe I ate the whole thing" (Alka Seltzer ad)
* "Is that your final answer?" (Regis Philbin, "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire")
* "No soup for you!" (The Soup Nazi, "Seinfeld")
* "Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?" (Grey Poupon ad)
* "Schwing!" (Mike Myers and Dana Carvey as Wayne and Garth, "Saturday Night Live")
* "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids" (Trix cereal ad)
* "Suit up!" (Barney Stinson, "How I Met Your Mother")
* "We are two wild and crazy guys!" (Steve Martin and Dan Aykroyd as Czech playboys, "Saturday Night Live")
* "You eeeediot!" (Ren, "Ren & Stimpy")

It's cool that a show that's only in its second season (How I Met Your Mother, one of the few shows I actually watch these days) has already created a phrase popular enough to be put on a list like this.

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
