The Girls - One of the many names that
TV characters have called their breasts on a variety of
show over the years. Here's a short list of examples that
explore the wonders of a woman's upper torso:
- Chicago magazine writer Hannah Miller (Jamie Lee Curtis) from
the sitcom ANYTHING BUT LOVE/ABC/1989-92 was especially proud of
her breasts. She nicknamed them "The Girls."
- On the July 18, 1997 segment of the daytime talk show OPRAH
called "Letters to Oprah" Oprah Winfrey read fan reactions to her
comments about her desire to have her breasts lifted. She
summarized their concerns with "Some encourage a lift...others say
to leave 'The Girls' alone."
- Louis De Palma (Danny DeVito), the lecherous taxi
dispatcher on the sitcom TAXI/ABC/NBC/1978-83 referred to Elaine
Nardo's breasts as "Headlights."
On the sitcom WHO'S THE BOSS/ABC/1984-92 Mona
Robinson (Katherine Helmond), was called "all boobs and no brains"
by her mother when she was younger. Mona's daughter Angela Bower
(Judith Light), a successful ad executive, was just the opposite
"all brains and no boobs."
On June 19, 1997 Jay Leno of THE TONIGHT SHOW
commented on Glamour magazine's revelation that many more women
than it was thought actually named their breasts. He followed by
complaining "Oh great! It's hard enough remembering one name, now
when we wake up in the morning we have to remember three.
On the sitcom DHARMA & GREG/ABC/1997+ Jenna Elfman
as Dharma Finkelstein revealed that her husband Greg Montgomery
(Thomas Gibson) nicknamed her breasts Eric and Lyle "because
they're a couple of killers."
On the sitcom MAD ABOUT YOU/NBC/1992-99 Jamie
Buchman (Helen Hunt) who was obsessed with making people like her,
went over board to impress a boy in high school and was known as
"The Stemple sister who showed a boy her boobs to be liked."
TRIVIA NOTE: On the
sitcom SEINFELD/NBC/1990-98 the term "My Boys" was the nickname for
George Costanza's sperm as in "My boys can swim"; and the nickname
for the genitals of both standup comedian Jerry Seinfeld and his
next-door neighbor Kramer (Michael Richards).
