Catchphrases&Presenters/HostsBy Kiranjit Khera
Deal, or no deal?Sometimes the title of a game show becomes its catch phrase.Deal or No Dealwas a huge sensation in prime time and Howie Mandel's question at the end of each round has become one of the most popular catch phrases in recent memory. Even though the show is no longer running, you'll still hear people asking, "Deal, or no deal?"
I'll take ___ for $1000, Alex.Jeopardy!, like most long-running game shows, has several catch phrases to choose from. This one, though, leaves no question as to its origin, and anyone using it is likely also visualizing the game board. There's no doubt who the "Alex" in the phrase is, either. Stop by trivia night at your local pub and find out for yourself how often this phrase gets thrown around.
I'd like to phone a friend.There are potentially two catch phrases fromWho Wants to Be a Millionairethat could have landed on this list: The one we chose, and "Is that your final answer?" We went with "I'd like to phone a friend" because it's appeared often in popular culture, from movies to viral jokes and more. Even thoughPhone-A-Friend has been discontinued as a lifeline on the show, it's still fondly remembered.
Survey says...!Unless you're the host ofFamily Feud you're probably not referring to the average responses of 100 people surveyed when you belt out, "survey says!" Still, it's a handy phrase when you're revealing an answer to, well, just about anything. And everyone will get the reference, which is another plus.
