"Ad astra per aspera" - Latin for "To the stars through difficulties" or "Through our endeavors, the stars." A variation of this phrase "Searcher...Per Arolia Ad Astra" was painted on the exterior hull of the starship Searcher on the sci-fi series BUCK ROGERS IN THE 25TH CENTURY/NBC/1979-81. TRIVIA NOTE: "Ad astra per aspera" is the motto for the State of Kansas.

"Anytime I Can Embarrass My Spouse, It Makes Me Feel Better" - Motto of Al Bundy, a frustrated shoe salesman on the sitcom MARRIED...WITH CHILDREN/FOX/1987-97. A modified version of this not so honorable motto is "When one Bundy is embarrassed, the rest of us feel good about ourselves." Other rousing Bundy credos are: "Lie when your wife is waking. Lie when your belly's aching. Lie when you know she's faking. Lie, sell shoes, and lie"; and "Hooters, hooters, yum yum yum. Hooters, hooters, on a girl that's dumb." The general Bundy philosophy is "If you're gonna lose, lose big." Their daughter Kelly, a blonde bimbo called herself the "Beatles of the 1980s.

"Anywhere, Anytime Airline" - Company motto of Triple A Airlines on the sitcom THE TIM CONWAY SHOW/CBS/1970 starring Tim Conway as a Spud Barrett, a bumbling pilot. The espionage adventure AIR AMERICA/SYN/1998-99 featured a covert Latin American air operations whose motto was "Anything, Anywhere, Anytime."

"Are You Going To Finish That Sandwich?" - The motto of the planet Melmac as told by ALF, a furry outer space alien with an appetite for cats on the sci-fi comedy ALF/NBC/1986-90.

"Ars Gratia Artis" - Motto for MGM Films created by Howard Dietz. The motto appeared above a circle in which Leo the lion resided/roared. The original motto was "The lion roars." MGM's unofficial motto is "More Stars that there are in heaven." Mary Tyler Moore's MTM Productions parodied the MGM lion by placing a pussy cat within a circle and having it "Meow" at the end of each episode of THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW/CBS/1970-77.
