Barney Is Now Legendary

TV Land has compiled a list of the 100 greatest TV catchphrases (to be ranked in a special), and one of the newest to make the list is "Suit up," made famous by Barney of How I Met Your Mother fame. Although the list skews heavily toward the 1970s, there are enough from more recent years (such as HIMYM, and "Denny Crane," from Boston Legal) to show that they're not completely ignoring current TV. One glaring omission, however: "Seriously," from Grey's Anatomy. I mean, they make mugs with that catchphrase on it. Seriously.

YEAH, Barney! He had the best quote EVER on HIMYM last night!

He was talking about how gays are trendsetters: "Gay marriage will cause single life to die out. Think of how the American family will be strengthened!" AWESOME.

They left out "SportsCenter's neeeeext," which Dan Patrick said every night for years on ESPN.
