7 Pavlovian Pop Culture Responses to Everyday Situations

1. “Sa’anciski? How did you came, you drove ‘n’ did ya flew?”
    (Sid Dithers, Private Eye from SCTV, any time anyone mentions San Francisco)
2. “My name is Mr. Burns. I believe you have a letter for me!”
    (Homer Simpson pretending to be Mr. Burns, any time I have to retrieve a package or letter)
3. “See, a beer and a shot… that’s one drink.”
    (Bad guy from MAGNUM, P.I. explaining a boilermaker to a Hawaiian bartender, any time anyone orders said combination at work)
4. “Don’t call me Shirley.”
    (I don’t really need to explain this one, do I?)
5. “I'll have a steak sandwich and a steak sandwich.”
    (Chevy Chase in FLETCH, any time anyone at the bar orders the same drink by name two times in the same order)
6. “I’ll take it out of her fine, soft flesh!”
    (Paraphrasing Cassidy in PSYCHO, any time an IOU is incurred)
7. “Is there no one on this planet to even CHALLENGE ME?!?”
    (General Zod in SUPERMAN II, whenever I win any kind of competition)
