    Missed “He’s dead Jim.” – Star Trek.

    “Fire at will” Star Trek the next generation. Unfortunately they never shot Riker. (OK that wasn’t a serious entry.)

    “Make it so” TNG again.

    Oooh, they put Emeril on the list. How obnoxious. I guess it’s better than immortalizing Rachael Ray’s “EVOO,” though.

    Not a bad list, overall. I recognize almost all of them… and have probably used about half.
