I don't get it, Ma. If you liked the name Fay so much, why didn't you just name one of us Fay?

(After his grandfather mentions summoning the police)

"*Pfft!* The police? They're too busy out there winning the war on drugs!" -- Luke, MODERN FAMILY

My favorite running gag ever is how incredibly cynical ten year-old Luke is on MODERN FAMILY about the police. It's never been explained, but it always makes me laugh.

There's a sequence on Frasier where Roz loses it.

Roz: You hear that whooshing sound? It's my career going down the toilet.

Frasier: Oh God, Roz, I don't think I've helped a single person tonight.

Roz: Helped? You'll be lucky if you don't get sued! You told a longshoreman to come out of the closet, and a gay guy to spend more time on the docks!

Julia: Excuse me, aren't you Marjorie Leigh Winnick, the current Miss Georgia World?

Marjorie: Why, yes I am.

Julia: I'm Julia Sugarbaker, Suzanne Sugarbaker's sister. I couldn't help over hearing part of your conversation.

Marjorie: Well, I'm sorry. I didn't know anyone was here.

Julia: Yes, and I gather from your comments there are a couple of other things you don't know, Marjorie. For example, you probably didn't know that Suzanne was the only contestant in Georgia pageant history to sweep every category except congeniality, and that is not something the women in my family aspire to anyway. Or that when she walked down the runway in her swimsuit, five contestants quit on the spot. Or that when she emerged from the isolation booth to answer the question, "What would you do to prevent war?" she spoke so eloquently of patriotism, battlefields and diamond tiaras, grown men wept. And you probably didn't know, Marjorie, that Suzanne was not just any Miss Georgia, she was the Miss Georgia. She didn't twirl just a baton, that baton was on fire. And when she threw that baton into the air, it flew higher, further, faster than any baton has ever flown before, hitting a transformer and showering the darkened arena with sparks! And when it finally did come down, Marjorie, my sister caught that baton, and 12,000 people jumped to their feet for sixteen and one-half minutes of uninterrupted thunderous ovation, as flames illuminated her tear-stained face! And that, Marjorie - just so you will know - and your children will someday know - is the night the lights went out in Georgia!

The more I Googled quotes from shows the more it became apparent that Lucy really is the best sitcom writing. Though there are tons of them here's a few I really like:

Ethel Mertz: Fred, I'm sorry I said you were a dumb bunny. Fred Mertz: And I'm sorry you're so fat you sat on my glasses and broke'em.

Lucy Ricardo: Hey, Ethel. Guess what Ricky got me! Ethel Mertz: Um... let's see. A hat? A new dress? Lucy Ricardo: Oh Ethel better! Think about what every woman wants from her husband! Ethel Mertz: A divorce?

Ethel Mertz: I refuse to go anywhere with someone who thinks I am a hippopotamus. Ricky Ricardo: Lucy, is this true? Lucy Ricardo: No, I just implied that she was a little hippy... though she has got the biggest potamus I've ever seen.
