    Your Favorite Dick Buttonisms

    Has anyone done a thread on this before? What are some of your more memorable sayings of his? I like 'pleased as punch' and 'the bee's knees'- not that he made those up but still, they are fun.

    From 2003 Worlds ... "it doesn't matter a rusty hoot ..."

    My husband likes "I love it ... I love it".

    That was really "spiffy"

    Some day I expect Dick to quote the guy in the Progressive Insurance ad who says that the insurance plan is "OkeymcSmoky Skiddlydoo".

    Oh, there are SEVERAL. Good ones at that.

    Your favorite wonky Dick Button quote?

    Your Favorite Dick Button Moment?

    Cattywampus catch-phrases of Dick Button!

    But if you do a search for "Dick Button" in thread titles in the archive, you also get a ton of competition-specific threads where there are rants against him!

    Here's a crazy one:

    Hey creepy Uncle Dick, get a magazine for god's sake!

    "Good for you, Lucinda Ruh!"

    "Good boy, good boy!"

    One of my favorite Dick Button moments was when he pinched Irina's rosy cheeks (mid 1990's).

    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    My favorite Dick Button is the one I hope to hear while he still has some dignity left. "I shouldn't be doing TV anymore."

    if I had a network I'd give him a half hour a wk to just ramble on whatever he wanted

    so i guess it would be like the joy behar show but with an intelligent and pleasant person
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I liked when he said Stephane's costume looked like the drapes in his dining room.

    And then there was that time when he went off about how delicious Rachael's braces were.

    I forget who he made this reference to, but the quote was, "This program could use a little more swan and a little less lake"

    Was that when Fumie skated her free skate at 2003 Worlds? If it was, I was still so glad she medalled there.

    "Her back is so straight, you could iron a shirt on it." Hands down my favorite Button masterpiece.

    Second one is Oxalis Bauil. That's what my husband has been calling all oxalis that pops up in our garden.

    "Well, that's an ugly spin." (Yoshie Onda's layback, GPF 2003?)
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.
