Momentous Phrases

As we blithely travel along life's highway we and our friends are accompanied from time to time by amusing phrases gleaned from the popular culture of the moment.

Although some of these phrases stay in common usgae for years on end other die out only to be rediscovered while watching one of those damn 100 Best list programmes on Channel Four.

After seeing the Eddie Izzard 'monkey on the branch' sketch again I am inspired to compile a list of past and present phrases.

1991? - The Mighty Sword of Dobber (where did this come from?)
1996? - "Nighty night, The Fury" (Game On)
1998? - "Le sange est sur le branch" (Eddie Izzard)
2004 - "Avit!" (I think this originally came from an advert)
2005 - "Very nice, very tasteful...I love all that." (Blessed)
2005 - "Shake me up, Judy!" (Bleak House)
2006 - "I'm 'aving 'oops!" (Life On Mars)

Clearly we need a few more phrases from the 90s and early 2000s. Can any of my friends recall other phrases or words that used to be in common usage?
