Can You Match These '80s Sitcom Characters to Their Catchphrases?
by Becky Stigall
CBS

A catchphrase is a type of phrase or expression that is easily recognizable and has been repeated over and over by many different people. Some of these phrases stem from things that we have heard politicians, celebrities and people in the public eye saying, as well as ones we have heard in movies and television series. 

The 1980s was one of the most popular decades when it comes to television and it was also one of those decades which many of the most popular catchphrases came from. These phrases have been said so often, that they are still being said today. 

Catchphrases that you may know include "Lucy, you got some 'splaining to do," "Whatchoo talkin' bout Willis?", "You're in big trouble mister," "Cut that jibe Jabba" and "I brought you into this world and I'll take you out."
