"Can we talk?" - Burning question asked by comedienne Joan Rivers (a.k.a. Joan Molinsky) during her comedy routines that featured mouthy gossip, personally intrusive questions, and cruel quips picking on the (then) weight problem of Elizabeth Taylor and the ugliness of the Royal family members. She retorted "Oh!, grow up!" when the audience questioned the meanness or tastefulness of her jokes. TRIVIA NOTE: In 1949 Bozo the Clown said "Can we laugh?"

"Come on down! You're the next contestant on THE PRICE IS RIGHT!" - The robust invitation offered by announcer (Don Pardo, Jack Clark, Johnny Gilbert, Ed Jordon, Rod Roddy and Johnny Olsen, among others) to a special member of the studio audience chosen to participate as a contestant on the game show THE PRICE IS RIGHT and THE NEW PRICE IS RIGHT that ran on NBC 1956-63, ABC 1963-65; in syndication from 1972-79, 1985-86 and on CBS 1972+. The program chose four members from the studio audience and let them bid on the prices of merchandise. Those coming closest without going over the retail price won and got to play more pricing games and to win more prizes.

"Coo-Coo" - Catchphrase of Goldie Appleby (Betty Hutton), a showgirl turned manicurist on the sitcom THE BETTY HUTTON SHOW/CBS/1959-60.

"Cowabunga, Dude!" - Favorite expression of Michaelangelo, Raphael, Donatello and Leonardo, four pizza-munching teenage superhero turtles on the animated cartoon TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES/SYN/CBS/FOX/1987-2003. "Kowabunga!" was also the war cry of Chief Thunderthud, an Indian resident of Doodyville on the popular children's program THE HOWDY DOODY SHOW/NBC/1947-60. See also - "Don't have a cow, man!"

"Crickey!" - Favorite catchphrase of risk-taking Australian wildlife expert Steve Irwin seen on the syndicated nature series CROCODILE HUNTER (1996), THE TEN DEADLIEST SNAKES IN THE WORLD (1998) and CROC FILES a.k.a. "The Crocodile Hunter's Croc Files" (1999) and the theatrical movie Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course (2002). Born February 22nd, 1962 in Queensland, Australia, Steve Irwin spent his life rescuing and relocating endangered animals. He loves to jump on top of them and wrestle them into submission with the aide of ropes and a good grip. Other words in Steve's vocabulary include: "G'day, (Good Day), Bloke (a guy), Sheila (a girl), Mate (Friend), Ripper (word for an animal), Chock-a-block (filled-with as in "chock-a-block full of crocs!" and "Wallop" (as in "This little ripper packs a heck-of-a wallop!").
