5 Famous TV Sitcom Guy Quotes That Seemed Funny on TV But You Could Never Pull Them Off in Real Life
Television shows become successful for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons happens to be character development. And a vital component of developing these characters is giving them signature lines that audiences will look forward to.
But in my eyes, some of these lines would never make it in the real world. Here are five popular guy lines that just wouldn’t pull it off out there.
P.S. These video clips are mostly just lame for the sake of being lame – the lines aren’t in all of them.
And we all used to love that Joey Russo didn’t we folks? The sexy, hunky, yet dumb as rocks older brother of our beloved Blossom would utter this line at least once an episode. Imagine being in a bar and someone tells you a story that’s interesting. Instead of shaking your head “yes.” You pause for a moment and let out a big “whoa.” I’m 99% sure you’d have a major problem making friends, if not getting thrown directly onto the sidewalk.
“Did I Do That?”
Remember this dance?
It would be nice if every single time you spilled milk, broke a glass, or even shot someone in the face that you could utter the phrase “did I do that?” in a very annoying and nose stuffed tone. But somehow in the real world I have a feeling this would only add fuel to the fire. As much as the studio audience was directed to laugh by the “applause” sign every time Urkel said these words, you can bet that at least 75% of them were thinking “man I’d like to kick this kid’s ass.”
What the hell kind of a line is “have mercy?” And not only that. The way that Uncle Jesse said it? And not only that. Having a mullet hairdo doesn’t exactly help the cause. I have never heard someone say “have mercy” in my entire life. And if i did hear someone say it? There’s no way I wouldn’t want them dead. I love using double negatives to express a positive.
“Cut it Out”
This video is slightly homoerotic
Well OK Dave Coulier. I’m not sure what deal you made with the devil on this one, but somehow your stupid phrase “cut it out” with the lamest hand gesture ever, made it into the mainstream. I’d like to point out that this is the worst thing ever to make it into mainstream. If I saw someone utter those lines, make that gesture, and was actually serious about it? I’d want to slit their throat.
“Ay Oh, Oh Ay”
Tony! Oh, oh ay. Yeah just keep saying that. There’s only one crowd that could pull this off and it’s the Myspace Toolbox crowd. But I have a feeling that most if not all of them just say this stuff anyway. There’s no chance they’e ever seen “Who’s the Boss.” But in my world, it’s just sounds like retarded grammar.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
