"Gee, Wilbur!" - On the sitcom MISTER ED/CBS/1961-65, a talking palomino (voice of Rocky Lane) often said this phrase to his owner architect Wilbur Post (Alan Young) when he was disappointed or wanted to persuade his master of something.

"Get Out!" - Cry of Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) when she thinks something is incredulous on the sitcom SEINFELD/NBC/1990-98. Accompanying the "Get out!" phrase is a two-handed full body push to the chest of the person to whom she is speaking. Her enthusiasm sometimes knocked the person over or across the room. Through eight seasons, Elaine shouted "Get Out" 13 times.

"Giddyup!" - Interjection spoken by "hipster doofus" Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards) when he was enthused on the sitcom SEINFELD/NBC/1990-98. When shocked he cried "Hoochie Mama!"

"Give that man twenty silver dollars!" - The quiz show DR. I.Q./ABC/1953-59 featured a character known as "The Doctor" who stood at a podium and shouted questions into the studio audience. When someone answered with the correct response he'd cry "Give that man (or lady)...silver dollars." Winners were actually paid off with cold, hard silver dollars.

"God'll get you for that" - The comeback of the outspoken Maude Findlay (Beatrice Arthur) on the sitcom MAUDE/CBS/1972-78 when she was angry with someone, usually her husband, Walter (Bill Macy), the owner of an appliance store in Tuckahoe, New York.

"Great Caesar's Ghost!" - Expletive frequently uttered by dyspeptic Perry White (John Hamilton), editor of the Metropolis Daily Planet newspaper on THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN/SYN/1951-57 and sequel series. When cub reporter Jimmy Olsen (Jack Larson) referred to Perry White as "Chief," he barked "Don't call me, Chief!"

"G-R-R-R-R" - Margie Albright (Gale Storm) from the sitcom MY LITTLE MARGIE/CBS/NBC/1952-55 often made this sound of exasperation when she found herself frustrated or in trouble, usually in relationship to her womanizing 50-year-old widowed father, Vern Albright (Charles Farrell).
